Coaching provides those individuals with the time and space to honestly challenge themselves to reflect on their behaviour and commit to making changes. Coaching is not about self-indulgent conversations, to have real and sustained impact requires a coach with skill, perception and a willingness to challenge.

We know that successful coaching is always founded on clear commissioning both with the sponsoring organisation and the individual client or team. Care taken in setting clear and concrete objectives with both parties helps to establish clear, measurable and mutually beneficial goals designed to support the needs of the client and the organisation.
In most instances following a commissioning meeting Alendi will develop clear objectives to be agreed by all parties that become the foundation for the coaching. One to one coaching programmes are usually comprised of six 90-120 minutes sessions with a final three way meeting with sponsor, client and coach to review results and check against work performance. For team coaching the approach is crafted to meet the needs of the sponsor and can be individual sessions or a programme delivered over several weeks or months.
