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

Team Coaching in Pairs

Team Coaching in Pairs

Team coaching is a very demanding activity. It is increasingly the norm that team coaches work in pairs. The benefits of doing so include:  
  • Sharing the parallel tasks of facilitating the group and observing the group dynamics
  • Each coach has frequent breaks from intense engagement with the team, so they remain fresh
  • Being able to step in when a colleague is stuck (for example, pointing out a group dynamic and asking the team what they would like to do about it)
  • More effective debriefs than when one coach reflects on their own
  In choosing a co-coach, it is helpful to look for someone with complementary skills and personality. You can learn a lot from each other and they will observe things you do not.   When you are the “back of room” coach, you can add value to the process by taking notes – for example, interesting words or phrases used by the team, interactions between group members (you may want to represent these as a diagram), ideas for new exercises, feedback for your coach colleague.   As a team of two, you can also role model being an effective team. Share notes and brief each other at coffee breaks. Demonstrate the skills of listening, supporting creative thinking and giving feedback to each other. However, in giving feedback to each other, be careful not to give the team the impression you are in disagreement or disarray – pra
