KeyWolf Coaching with Graham Walkinshaw
Unlock the Path Ahead
Fully Qualified Co-Active Coach offering coaching based on the key principles of Fulfilment (values) Balance (choice) and Process (internal experience).
I have worked with a coaching approach for over 15 years having come from a counselling support and groupwork background. In addition to one to one coaching in the specialisms listed I also offer team coaching programmes and coaching packages developed over many years. These can be applied to your individual situation or that of your team or organisation. They include;
For want of a better term is a short and very focussed session – usually lasting no more than 20 minutes – and can last around 15 minutes once you get the hang of it: More often than not appropriate for those who have been in a coaching relationship beforehand.
There are people who I have come across in the world who express a feeling of being lost – or having lost some essence of themselves and who they are. More importantly they have lost sight of who they want to be. This is an area of work which requires a coaching relationship over time so that you can explore areas in life and find your own path back to the person you want to become. This involves working with values - supporting your understanding and awareness of the core aspects of yourself that you have lost touch with, make some decisions on what action you want to take on this uncovered roadway and reconnect with the full range of experiences that life can bring. We will definitely do some Future Self work and usually some Life Purpose work also.
Action Learning Sets
Using a very specific and unique model of action learning that encourages deeper exploration and sharing or perspectives;Group Supervision for coaches and other connected professionals - Using the action learning methodology I offer a package of sessions which supports professional growth and self directed learning drawing on the power of the group;
Coaching for Rehabilitation
From a long background in dependency work I have developed an application of key coaching models to work with individuals in active recovery or apply this with a committed group in a timed group programme. Training for staff in this model is available in conjunction with Acorn Principle Plus a coaching partner company.
5 Point Coaching
The ‘time for getting your finger out’ coaching programme which offers a series of short and focussed sessions to re-energise and bring back that edge which has blunted by running up against life. This is a programme aimed at individuals who want to get their life back on track and which can be applied to groups or teams in the workplace. Following some similar principals to ‘Lay the Course’ you will identify what it is that is important to you and work out what steps will move you in that direction. A simple handbook or guide which you work through as part of the programme assists you in describing, creating and implementing the action you want. For those who are committed to change in their life and work.
TIS Programme for workplace teams
TIS or Teams in Stasis does what it says on the tin – take a team of people who feel like they are treading water or just simply stuck and applies a healthy dose of push! Comprising of 4 distinct stages:
Session 1 - Designing the Partnership Alliance
Session 2 - Determined in part by the outcomes of the first session but offering some work covering the following;
• Third Entity Work – The Voice of the Team: The relationship is what we are working with here. Consideration of the team as an entity and what it needs as a whole
• Constellation of the team (looking at the voice of the system – the dynamics of how the team are in relation to a particular focus)
Session 3 - Building on the result of what work is done in session 2, some work covering the following;
• Alignment Work- considering how the team can come together if there is an unresolved issue remaining unaddressed.
• Relationship Myths – What inspired you to come together to do this work? Reconnecting with the inspirational.
Session 4 is about Deepening the Learning and Forwarding the Action. As it says – locking in what has been learned together and identifying the action to follow and the accountability the team will take forward.
Consultancy, Team Building and Training Projects
As an organisational consultant I bring a perspective of the outsider who can connect with where you are in your desires or struggles with a project or challenge. I work with the individuals who make up the team as well as with the relationship that extends between the team members as an entity in its own right. This is a very real application of the thinking that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Some of this work is done in conjunction with Acorn Principle Plus Ltd www.theacornprinciple.com
