Age Inclusive™ Coaching Services

 

Coaching is a professionally structured one-to-one conversation that is increasingly being recognised for its effectiveness in helping individuals with their development needs. Age Inclusive currently provides coaching in two key areas:

 

Retirement Coaching

 

In their final years at work, some people - including business owners and senior managers - can feel confused and disheartened by the prospect of retirement, especially if they have been a loyal and committed professional whose workplace has provided much of their sense of purpose. 

 

A one-to-one coaching programme (led by a qualified professional coach) offers a solution that cannot be matched by any of the alternatives, such as training programmes, seminars and books on the subject. 

 

The programme involves four one hour sessions spaced a week apart. The sessions can either take place in a private meeting room at your workplace or by Skype or telephone. The first session reviews the client’s core values and motivations. Subsequent sessions go on to consider the client’s long term retirement goals (based on their values), ultimately leading in the final session to the preparation of a short term action plan. The aim of the programme is to help the client better prepare for and look forward to their retirement.

 

Age Diversity Management Coaching 

 

For the first time, many organisations now have four generations in the workforce – people with vastly different life experiences and expectations. Yet managers are often expected to know instinctively how to get the best from their diverse staff, both individually and as a team, without being provided with any formal support. 

 

A one-to-one coaching programme (led by a qualified professional coach) offers a solution that cannot be matched by any of the alternatives, such as training programmes, seminars and books on the subject. Coaching recognises that no two workplaces and no two managers are the same: Every situation requires its own unique solution for the best outcomes to be achieved.

 

The programme involves four one hour sessions spaced a week apart, followed by two further sessions at monthly intervals. The sessions can either take place in a private meeting room at your workplace or by Skype or telephone. 

 

The first session involves helping the client to understand the 6 key management styles, as identified by Daniel Goleman, their own preferred style, and the implications of being too rigid in this respect. The second session considers the main differences between the four generations in the workplace, based on the real situation faced by the client on a daily basis. 

 

Sessions three and four are even more focussed on the problems and issues currently being faced in the workplace, leading to the preparation of an action plan for the changes that need to be made to create a better and more productive team.

 

Sessions five and six are follow up sessions, spaced a month apart to review progress and, if required, agree new actions.
