In a business world where the demand for improved results and the pace of change is as great as it has ever been, where remote management is now common place and where matrix management structures often play a part, the challenge to be a truly effective Leader and Manager is tough - it is easy to be busy, more difficult to be busy and effective.

Before starting a programme we have conversations with the manager identified as requiring coaching support in order to identify the challenges and opportunities from their perspective, to assess their readiness to change and to check if there is a ‘personal chemistry’ which will mean that the individual and the likely george james coach can work together effectively.
We also attempt to gain whenever possible the perspectives of at least the manager of the individual and one other person – a peer or key partner in the business – in order to help us formulate the success criteria, programme agenda and of course priorities that meet the personal and business development requirements of the individual.
We work with the individuals concerned on a face to face basis plus a programme of on demand and formal appointment based telephone support. We utilise a variety of techniques and tools to assist the learning and development process such as role play, attendance at key team meetings, Belbin profiling for team building and formal report back exercises.
The duration of the programme and the interval between the programme days depends on the requirements of the individual and the progress they make.
Programmes are typically of 3 to 6 days in duration spread over a number of months.
