Professional Coaching and Mentoring

Professionals, Individuals, Organisations

Transcend is an organisation committed to helping people and organisations experience meaningful transformations. Coaching and mentoring are two proven pathways to this level of change. Our team and network of highly qualified coaches are skilled in a variety of approaches and with a wide range of experience. We provide One-on-One and Group coaching for people at all levels of development. We also have a pool of coaches, an extensive global coaching network and are able to help organisations design and execute internal coaching programs.

What is the difference between coaching and mentoring? 

Both interventions use similar skills, approaches, tools and processes.  In a very simple way, here’s what we see as the difference.

Mentoring is a relationship that is based on sharing from experience.  The effective mentor advises, questions and challenges –  selectively choosing what information is most beneficial to develop potential leaders.  The mentee then has the responsibility to choose if or how to apply the information.

Coaching is a goal focused co-creative process where the coach and coaching client generate learning and actions that arise from the discussions.  The coaching client creates and chooses the actions they will take to enhance, apply or increase the learning.

What are people hiring coaches for? 

We offer a wide array of coaching approaches and topics.  Quality coaches are skilled in a wide range of topics, areas of concern and focus areas.  Often coaches also specialise in areas where they are passionate, experienced and skilled.   Some of the the more common initial reasons we are approached for coaching are:

  • Executive presence
  • Psychometric and 360 interpretation and development
  • Balance
  • Transitions
  • Effectiveness and growth in a current role
  • Emotional intelligence
  • Desired and difficult to change behaviours
  • Preparation for promotion or partnership
  • Careering
  • Leadership development

Emotional Intelligence: The Key to Executive Presence

Understanding executive presence is a dark art. People claim to know what it is when they see it - and can't tell you how they know. People that have it know it and own it - and have no idea how they got it. People who don't have it tend to think they have it. People who don't have it are often the people who judge if others have it or not. We are either in or out of the executive presence club. And it feels like a group of shadowy figures meet in secret and determined who has it and who doesn't and everyone else seems to know the results of their deliberations and no one ever seems to tell us. The Executive Presence game has high stakes. Careers, promotions and salaries hang in the balance. This can be terribly frustrating for people genuinely trying to develop it in themselves and for those who want to help others develop it. One of the ways I describe I do as a coach, supervisor and facilitator is: I help people with "it". Whatever "it" might happen to be and "it" can be a lot of things. In this article I will explore the "it" that is commonly known as Executive Presence in relation to Emotional Intelligence. I will give you ideas into how focusing on Emotional Intelligence will enable you to know how you can enhance, develop or change or even transform yourself into the the kind of person who is perceived as having executive presence. And beyond that, becoming someone who genuinely has it. For other articles and to find out more connect with our
