Coaching for New Leaders

I have been involved with the coaching process with Pam Welsby over a year and a half. The coaching process has enabled me to become a more patient person, willing to listen to others and to enjoy doing it.

Moreover, the coaching helped me to gain the capability to listen to other peoples perspectives and to try to search for and understand others opinions. In addition, I have gained valuable suggestions related to dealing with difficulties either personal or project orientated in the business environment and in business case preparation.

Competency Based 360 Feedback Coaching

Thanks to Pam from Gallaher Ukraine Management Team. It was a great process for strengthening and developing the Senior Management Team. The individual approach to each manager gave insight into their own visions and personal development areas. And the result? A huge step forward for the team.

After the coaching with Pam all the participants passed the stage of "shock" after getting their 360 report and came to a phase of "realization & improvement". High professionalism and safe environment impressed even those of our employees who before refuse to be coached.

In our organisation, we put a lot of emphasis on training and having a good working environment. We believe that only competent, well trained and happy employees are prepared for changes that occur regularly today. We wish to offer focused trainings to our employees, therefore we expect training providers to adapt their work to our demands.

We are grateful that 360 degree feedback is a very strong tool that allows a manager to better understand his style and the way he is seen by others. This is the honest, and to my understanding, the most objective instrument I have used so far in terms of identification of your own strengths and weaknesses. It gives lots of opportunities to improve your style and develop what you need in your current role. Competency gap analysis definitely helps managers to identify potential areas that will form part of the individual development plan. The key idea to me is that the lessons learnt can be applied immediately to adjust your own agenda and action plans. We work in one team and the stronger the team members potentially the stronger the team. As football coaches would say: “You cannot make a team of bad players but best players cannot make a strong team, either”. Only constantly and critically looking at yourself, how you are working, continuously developing your style and welcoming feedback can make a true and strong team member. Also the coaching session is of key importance as the coach helps you to articulate for yourself your way forward and put on the table all issues and concerns, to reveal hidden agendas and things people would prefer “to keep to themselves”. Only when you realize and admit these things can you move forward. 360 degree feedback is of extreme importance for the business as it assists managers to see what they don’t see before or prefer not to see.

Executive Coaching

Coaching was a great experience for me. I really learned a lot how managers should lead their associates and how to handle challenging situations.

Nowadays it is essential for the manager to focus on people. Emotional Intelligence is becoming more and more important in a constantly changing professional environment. Constant changes are a part of our every day work and we need to be prepared and equipped with the knowledge to handle the situation in the best possible way.

I recommend individual coaching sessions with Pam Welsby to each and every manager but especially for the managers that has just been appointed for the first time to the manager position.

 First of all, I think coaching is the best way to learn more about yourself and to learn how to react in the best way in a specific situation or relationship. Effective communication is the key for good relationships and achieving great results. The profile tool SDI (Strength Deployment Inventory) charmed me with its simplicity and applicability. Of course this might not be the case without a great coach. All of this applies to our TB as well. One of my colleagues said: 'It takes so little and the things and people are so much better understood.'

I wish to express my gratitude for leading me through the coaching process in the last 9 months. This has been a great pleasure and a significant learning for me.

 Some of the key successes from the programme include:
  • It was thanks to the discussions that we have had that encouraged me to apply for the new position and eventually I got a new assignment for managing Pharmacy Chains KAMs.
  • What in particular I liked about the SDI profiling tool was the toolbox of behaviours that can be adopted for use with different personalities depending on their profile.
  • Increasing my self-confidence within Senior Management Team leading to taking initiative/responsibility for important project building on my strengths (strategic analysis).

Self Discovery Programme Coaching

High Impact Coaching through Role Expectations was a very intense exercise; well, discussion actually, which helped me to see/understand my co-workers from a different aspect and to understand their motivation and learn about the communication I should use with them. It also gave me the possibility to be honest to myself, see my ability to accept others as they are, as well as to discover my own frustrations on which I should still work.
It was a great learning experience, I just hope I'll be able to implement what I have learnt into a daily practice, my life.
