Individual Coaching/Mentoring

Coaching individuals has become an important part of SPT's business,working with individuals on issues that impact personal and business performance but don’t fit into a ‘tidy’ course or workshop.

Discussions are highly interactive with issues explored using current understanding and situation to develop the best way forward for the business and person. Sessions are typically around one and a half/two hours and one session can be enough though the norm is two or three. At least one is held face-to-face in the same room though others can and frequently are, held over Skype.

The service involves a questionnaire called GrowthMapper that diagnoses your company’s strengths and weaknesses, this leads to a preliminary Scope of Support which outlines areas to be worked on, there’s no commitment on your part up to this point. If you go ahead from this stage you will be allocated a coach, given access to matched funding for Leadershop and Management training and the Master Classes.

The package is valued at £3500+VAT, however, the government co-invests and pays for a part of this, how much they pay depends on the number of employees in your business. The amount you pay then varies as follows:
