Coaching and mentoring


Sometimes all you need to solve your problem, or reach for a dream

is for someone to give you a different focus or a first practical step.

  • Do you need expert advice on how to handle a situation, or achieve a goal, in an organization?
  • Do you need expert support in strategy, leadership, organizational development, change management, facilitation or innovation?
  • Are you dealing with difficult people? Struggling with politics? Finding it difficult to get the support you need?
  • Do you need someone to help you to diagnose a difficult situation, connect the dots, or see a problem in a new light?
  • Do you need to design a workshop or organizational intervention?
  • Do you want a mentor, a coach, some guidance or just someone independent and non-judgmental, who you can use to test your own ideas or designs with?

Who is the Coach?

Ruth Tearle acts as a mentor, coach, advisor and designer to:

  • CEOs and directors dealing with complex organizational issues.
  • Executives who are introducing new strategies, cultures, systems and processes into the organization that will impact on people.
  • Internal consultants, coaches and facilitators working inside large organizations.
  • Freelance consultants and coaches who want a fresh but tested approach to solving complex problems.

coachWith her vast experience in organizational strategy, leadership, organizational development, change management, continuous improvement, facilitation and innovation, the Coach is able to provide simple, practical advice to leaders that 'connects the dots.' She also acts as a mentor to other consultants helping them to design interventions or workshops that gets their clients coming back for more.

As an author of  motivational books and the founder of Change Designs consulting and publishing, those who want to create a business out of their passion, can also draw on this aspect of Ruth's experience. See her resume here.



A flexible approach to coaching.

We recognize that many people:

  • Are busy and don't want to be locked into long term coaching contracts.
  • Have different needs at different times.
    • Sometimes they will need to explain a complex situation and would prefer to talk directly to a coach.
    • At other times they may simply want a quick answer to a quick question, or they may not have the time to book or wait for an appointment. When faced with a problem, they may prefer to go on-line and pose the question immediately.

In line with this, Change Designs offers the following :

Flexible packages for business coaching and mentoring.

Coaching

Executive coaching.

Book an executive coaching session when:

  • You are a CEO and need a mentor outside the organization to act as a sounding board. Someone who is independent of your organization's political system. Someone who can help you diagnose the cause of frustrations you are experiencing, help you with challenges you are facing, and help you to build the organization you want.
  • You are the head of an SBU or specialist division. You are working on a project that will impact on multiple teams in the organization.
  • You have a complex leadership or organizational problem you need to resolve that will impact on the entire organization.
  • You need the coach to understand your organization, your industry and the context you are operating in.
  • You need the coach to understand the different personalities you are working with.
  • You want to do complex consulting, facilitation or Organizational Development work yourself and want the coach to mentor you as you go.
  • You need someone who understands far more than how to apply a models, theory or template. Rather you need someone who has experienced something similar before, and who has the expertise to custom design a solution that will work in your environment.

How to get coaching:

  • Arrange a time for either a skype video call, a whats app call or phone call with the coach.
  • Pay for the number of hours you expect to use, or make an arrangement with the coach and your finance department for payment.
  • During your call explain to the coach:
    • What you want to achieve from your coaching session/s with the coach.
    • What your problem/frustration or goal is.
    • The stakeholders you are working with.
    • The context you are working in, and the challenges it creates.
    • What is and isn't working for you.
    • Other information that you feel the coach needs to know to help you.

Coaching

Coaching at a team level.

Book a phone or skype video appointment with the coach when:

  • You are working at a team level. This could be a division, department, a functional team, a strategic business unit, or a team of specialists.
  • You are faced with a problem, situation or frustration. One that is complicated. One that you can't explain in a few short sentences on CoachChat.
  • You need to achieve a goal with your team, but its proving more difficult than you expected.
  • You need someone to help you to diagnose what is happening in your division, team, department or business unit.
  • You need someone with experience and wisdom, who can listen to what you are experiencing, connect the dots, and focus on the core problem that is causing your frustration.
  • You need someone who understands far more than how to apply a models, theory or template. Rather you need someone who has experienced something similar before, and who has the expertise to custom design a solution that will work in your environment.

How to get coaching:

CoachChat on-line coaching.

Coaching

If you enjoy texting, chatting or using What'sApp on your smart phone, then you will enjoy using CoachChat. As easy to use as a chat, this on-line coaching service means you get the benefit of a personal coach, without having to book an appointment or pay hourly coaching fees.

To begin a coaching session, go to the CoachChat page and ask a question. The coach will answer on the same page. You can use your smart phone, tablet or computer to chat from wherever you are, and from whichever device you have handy at that time.

There are times when we get stuck. We don't have the budget or time to hire a personal coach or make an appointment to see them. All we want is a quick chat with a coach.

Your chat is stored in a private zone for you in the cloud and only you will be able to see your chat.

To use the CoachChat feature, you will need to buy any of the Gold membership subscriptions and log in as a Gold member.
