To find innovative ways to help individuals, teams & organisations maximise their intellectual & emotional resources
"Sounding the depths of the emotional currents in an organization can have concrete benefits. " (Daniel Goleman 'Working with Emotional Intelligence')
As globalization and demographic trends increasingly bring cultural and gender difference into organisations alongside the existing diversity of personality, experience and skill levels there is potential for conflict (of values, perspectives, working styles etc.), confusion and negativity, often with serious consequences for productivity, engagement, retention and, perhaps most importantly, health. However, there is also great potential for this diversity to drive growth, innovation, enhanced understanding and job satisfaction. Using innovative coaching techniques grounded in well-established scientific principles and hard won experience we work to develop a range of emotional intelligence skills that will help leaders, managers and individuals meet the challenges raised by difference, operate with more focus and confidence and create a vibrant workplace culture that attracts and retains talented people.
Any organisation needs knowledgable people who have mastered a range of relevant skills and have extensive practical experience. People with the ability to effectively manage these 'human resources' are also vital to the smooth running of a successful company. However, behind the idea of people as a resource are the individuals themselves. In his book 'The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People' Stephen Covey writes: 'Unless you're influenced by my uniqueness, I'm not going to be influenced by your advice.' At Coach Tokyo we believe this is the essence of leadership. The emphasis that our coaching places on the relationship between the coach (as a trained guide and source of support) and the coachee (as a resourceful individual who is the expert on their own life and work) helps us bring out and build on the innate ability of people at all levels of corporate responsibility to both lead and be lead.
