CCO – the Collaboration Company – specialises in business coaching.
We understand business culture, strategy, leadership and management. Yet, we know that what truly makes your business tick is your people: how they communicate, interact and apply the knowledge they have.
We coach your people to be the best version of themselves, because optimum performance requires people being the best they can be. Skilful communication is the greatest contributor to a high-performance business but they’re anything but ‘soft skills’. 83% of your work based frustrations in any given week can be linked to ineffective communication.
Each of our coaches are experienced and trained in leadership and management roles with leading-edge training on how brain science can be used to enhance work-place performance.
Behaviour impacts outcomes. The logic is inescapable: how we act, interact and react influences engagement, loyalty, commitment and performance. This holds true within your business and how your team behave externally with customers and suppliers.
Our one-to-one and team-based Coaching Programmes are tailored to develop a range of leadership, management, supervisory, or team-leader skills – depending on the role. People often progress based on their success in previous roles. We look out for, and address, the ‘upward obstacles’: bringing part of their previous role with them and the management-skill-gap. This often involves coaching to effectively manage a team and further developing their confidence in areas such as planning, prioritising, delegation and managing competing demands on their time.
It’s important to have ‘result producers’ – those individuals who just make it happen! Yet, outstanding results shouldn’t come with the cost of disrespectful communication or inappropriate behaviour or negative attitude. Our team of coaches are highly trained in workplace behaviour. We can support your team modify habits and behaviour that don’t work without compromising the results they achieve.
CCO have partnered our business for the last number of years. Their support has been practical, invaluable and enormously beneficial in help us formulate a longer terms strategy, translate this strategy to meaningful action plans and in their coaching, mentoring and training of our teams across the business. Their blend of business experience combined with high-level, relevant expertise in human behavour within dynamic workplaces has been hugely beneficial.
As Managing Director, I have been Coached directly by the principal in the business and have found the support both challenging and value adding in the growth and development of the Specialist Group.
CCO have been involved with the Keystone Group for a number of years as Executive Coaches. I continue to work with and reap lots of benefit from regular coaching sessions. Their approach is rigorous, systematic and they adopt a practical approach in helping get clear on vision, strategy and directing our leadership team to deliver meaningful results aligned with our broader corporate objectives.
In many respects, the value of Coaching is having an expert opinion on side to ensure sufficient time is focused working on the business, rather than in the business. CCO have been invaluable in taking our leadership team off-site, starting with a blank canvas regarding what might be possible and formulating a growth strategy without the constraints of ‘how’ we might achieve it. They have provided support to our internal experts on leadership, developed our management competence and have a tried and trusted approach to creating clarity around roles and ensuring that actions are aligned with delivery of tangible objective-based outcomes.
