Types of Coaching
Conspire offers a range of coaching programmes. As we typically work with women in a holistic way, clients often take on a mix of leadership and life coaching over the courss of the engagement.
Conspire Clients are already very good at what they do. They seek Leadership Coaching because they are
- stretching into an advanced level of leadership and want to do so effectively
- feeling isolated, lacking peers, needing an impartial sounding board and support
- leading through change or complex situations and seeking support to do so thoughtfully
- coping with pressures outside of work and struggling to feel motivated, focused or otherwise thriving
- dealing with difficult leaders or peers and what they've already tried isn't working
- juggling a million things at work and at home
- one of a small number of minority ethnic people, or one of the only women, or in some other way feel marginalised
- simply value having a space to step back, talk things through, set priorities, explore challenges and be the best leader possible.
Leadership coaching programmes are typically on-going with engagements ranging from 3 months to 2 years based on an initial needs assessment.
If you are like many of Conspire Coaching's clients, you are a woman who has a lot on her mind. What you are doing with your life and how you are spending your time really matter to you.
People hire a life coach for ongoing work to live with intention and purpose. One month you may work on developing a new habit that supports you in being healthy. The next month you might focus on bringing more joy into your relationships. As the client, you are always in the driver's seat. The coach will ask you questions to draw out what matters most to you and how you can make changes or gain new insight into that area of focus.
The result is a life that is grounded in values, free of monkey-brain distraction, increased satisfaction and a deepening of resilience and inner-strength.
Life-coaching is typically an on-going engagement with a set day and time of the week.
New Life Chapter Coaching
Suddenly something shifts and what was once working is no longer. Using Conspire's Women Leaders Emerging Curriculum (TM) clients create a strategic plan for their upcoming chapter of life and career. Through this process, clients let go of what is no longer working and move towards creating a new reality. It's a powerful programme for women who are feeling ready for a significant change.
This is a curriculum based programme that is completed over a three-to-four month period.
Career Development Coaching
Career development coaching provides a space, tools and a thought partner to explore who you are and what you want out of your career. The coach helps the client to clarify her values, strengths and career desires and then position herself to align these with her career. Career development coaching also supports professionals to make progress on performance goals that are often set in coordination with line managers. Coaching topics might include becoming more strategic, forming alliances and strong positive work relationships, developing influence, time management, leading up and coping with stress.
Peaceful Mom Coaching
For moms who consider themselves leaders in their families and communities and who want to raise children who are grounded, empathetic, kind and empowered to make a difference in the world. Conspire Coaching acknowledges the mental load of the zillions of things on a mum's to do list that keeps them from being fully present and enjoying their children. Sometimes work stress, or pressures from community commitments, or relationship / friendships struggles wear down your patience and kill your joy.
Through coaching, you'l have a calming space to unload the stress of mothering and be able to step back to take a look at how you are approaching your children, family and community.
"I was going through a really stressful time in my career, both in my current role and in terms of thinking about what I wanted to do next. I sought out Jen as a coach because I needed support to sift through everything that was going on- feeling ready to move on from my current job in a time when it required the most of me, and feeling a little stuck in my own career goals. Going through the coaching process added a layer of accountability and support that I was seeking. Jen encouraged me to name what was stressful for me and why and to commit to working through it. Jen helped me identify my own strengths and tools that I already had and how to use them to be a better manager for my team. She asked clear, thoughtful questions that really helped me think through my goals. I highly recommend Jen as a coach, and I'm so grateful for the experience and the support." -Sarah, Nonprofit Professional, Chicago, IL
