International Women’s Day - what we’ve learned, coaching women

March 7, 2017 | comments

Talking Talent have been going over a decade now – and we are pleasantly surprised by how much change and progress we have seen.  

Ours was initially a niche business, but is now much better understood and valued.  More and more leading organisations see the benefit in providing coaching and support to women at critical moments in their career (such as the return to work following children) and also to help them achieve the ambitious work goals they have whilst not compromising on identities outside of work.

In building or presenting the business case for gender diversity in your organisation, you can often be hit early on by difficulties in getting support for starting a big conversation that not everyone wants to hear.

What is the true value of coaching?

May 17, 2013 | comments

Within our line of work “what is the true value of coaching?” is perhaps the question we get asked most frequently.  Sometimes it comes from the coachees who are about to embark on the coaching programme, sometimes it comes from their managers . Mostly though it comes from our prospective clients, who can be convinced of the value of coaching but uncertain as to how that value translates into a business case for Board approval.
