News Update

At LifeForward we have coaching at the core of all that we do. Why? Because for us, coaching is about a can-do mindset, an unconditional positive regard for our clients and a belief in their potential to achieve and succeed.

We work with our clients to drive high performance, whether individually or as a team, to help them achieve both personal or business goals and deliver success, however that is measured.  

We deliver practical, business-focused development solutions, drawing on our own experience of working within the international business environment, blended with years of coaching and facilitating businesses in UK, Europe and Asia. We work with leaders and business owners to provide personal and leadership development, focusing on emotional intelligence and authentic leadership as a foundation for broader development.

New Coaching and Development Services

Transformational Leadership

As licensed practitioners for Insights Discovery, we are now able to offer clients the Transformational Leadership profile as part of our leadership Development programmes. Find out more about Transformational Leadership.

Global Executive Coaching

In addition to our core executive coaching and leadership development services, we are now offering the specialised area of Global Executive Coaching. The challenges of working virtually are more complex with a global team. In addition to the more limited opportunities to connect due to various time zones are the cultural differences in communication styles and approach, traits surrounding feedback, attitudes to leadership, building trust and influencing. It is essential to have a core understanding of these differences so that mutual respect and understanding is possible.

Preparing for, and understanding, such cultural differences in the business workplace is also vital for those embarking upon an international secondment, albeit that the move is within the same global firm in which they currently find themselves. 

Building on our many years of both working overseas and working virtually with teams across five continents, we have brought together new resources to help clients embrace a more multi-cultural aspect to their self-awareness and approach to motivating and managing teams.  We can help clients develop a clear sense of purpose with an international outlook that values the strengths and diversity of their global team and environment.

Virtual Workshops

We have a full range of workshops on topics as diverse as resilience, leading in a virtual environment and building a positive mindset. We use the profiling tool – Insights Discovery – to help develop self-awareness and understanding.  Workshops can include introductory training for you or your team – or simply provide support for your colleagues as they continue to adjust to today’s changing world. Find out more about Insights Discovery. 

Developing Emotional Intelligence

Why is emotional intelligence so important in a leader? Is this something a leader can develop?

Emotional Intelligence, otherwise know as EQ or emotional competencies, has become more important than ever as leaders; and teams need to adapt to new ways of working and deal with continuing uncertainty in the world at large. Empathy, transparency, optimism, inspiration and conflict management are just a few of the emotional competencies that will be put to the test within the “new normal”. Leaders now need to find new definitions of “success” and continue to reward and support their teams through periods of change. 

At LifeForward we seek to develop emotional intelligence throughout our coaching and workshops. We regard self-awareness and self-management as the foundations for most aspects of personal growth and team development. Find out more about emotional intelligence.

LifeForward's approach to coaching

  • Why work with LifeForward Coaching?
  • How do our coaches work?
  • LifeForward Coaching vs ...

The best ideas and solutions come from within ourselves. At LifeForward we do not tell you how to run your business, your career or your life. Instead, we leverage our expertise in business, leadership development and coaching to listen, challenge and question with a positive belief in everyone’s ability to identify their own solutions

Working through a situation with a neutral partner, such as the coach, who is an objective observer removed from the workplace, helps to bring clarity of thought, develop confidence to move forward and build the required capabilities to fulfil potential

At LifeForward we work with clients to develop a clear vision and strategy

We are action-focused and expect clients to commit to clearly defined, measurable goals

We bring a professional, empathetic yet challenging approach to our work with clients, ensuring engagement and rapport is built with stakeholders at all levels in an organisation

We offer leadership development and executive coaching to help clients build self-awareness, motivation and confidence

Executive Coaching vs Mentoring

Coaching involves a specialist trained to support you to look at yourself.  Coming from outside the business, coaches encourage a fresh perspective, freedom to explore and to find the answers within.

Coaching and Insights Discovery

We have found that Insights Discovery offers a unique research-based tool to provide a common language to explore many of the dynamics that we look at throughout the coaching journey.

Leadership Development vs Training

Rather than teach you how to lead, coaching works through facilitated self-enquiry. We recognise that leadership is unique to each individual and authenticity has to come from within.

Business Coaching vs Consulting

Coaching is aimed at unlocking the untapped potential of both your individuals and your business. This enhancement remains when we leave – and can be further built on.
