What I Offer:
Opportunity to dip your toe in the water, to see if mentoring is suitable for you, your challenge and your circumstances.
To ensure this session provides standalone benefit, we will utilise the Very Brief Cognitive Behavioural Coaching method.
Opportunity to continue
Based on our conversation we can also explore whether ongoing mentoring support would help you.
What mentoring clients leave with:
Protected time to think as well as a methodical approach enable clients to gain fresh insights.
Actions to take
This approach enables clients to identify behavioural actions that they wish to take as a result of reflection.
If we both identify that ongoing accountability to complete your actions would help you this can be arranged.
Working with Laughlin Consultancy as your leadership mentoring provider is simple. Through 3 easy steps, a tailored mentoring approach is agreed and delivered as a live online session(s). You have full visibility of content & cost throughout.
An initial conversation for us to get to know each other, agree on what you need and decide if we would work well together.
Once we agree the best content & delivery platform, you will be provided with a costed proposal or recommended a Taster Session.
Mentees are sent invites to live online mentoring sessions. Following each session actions are confirmed by email.
“Paul has a great mix of skills that have helped me understand my own motives and rationale, as well as helping me achieve the goals that I wanted to achieve. The coaching process has been interesting, enlightening and rewarding. I recommend Paul to anyone who feels a bit stuck, or who feels they can achieve more.“
All our mentoring work with leaders is grounded in two foundations. Firstly, over 20 years of practitioner leader experience in creating and leading such teams. Secondly, continuous professional development as an executive coach & mentor.
The latter is supported by regular qualified supervision and a personal development programme focussed on coaching & mentoring best practice to help our clients. Paul Laughlin is also part of the University of South Wales’ Wales Coaching Centre.
What our Clients say:
“Paul helped me to be clearer on what I wanted to achieve in my new role and to focus on what was important to me. I put huge pressure on myself to deliver everything – without compromise.
Paul helped me focus on measurable goals – and levels of goals I’d be happy to accept – rather than the focus on everything being perfect. This led me to achieve much more.“
“I have benefitted hugely from working with Paul. The experience was challenging and revealing in the best and most productive way. Paul’s perceptiveness and encouragement allowed me to feel safe in being honest and making myself vulnerable; so that in the end the insights I needed to have were truly my own. His focus on committing to actions held me accountable for my own progress, and set a model for the future.“
“It was a real pleasure to work with Paul. As my mentor, he was of real benefit to me. I came to greatly value his counsel, guidance and help. Working with Paul enabled me to establish a self-reflection practice and look holistically at my life and priorities. Paul has an awesome ability to question, listen, digest, understand, guide and challenge. An actions based approach also helped to ensure I was regularly held to account. I fully recommend Paul as a mentor to all those who want to grow and develop themselves as leaders.“
“To make the most of this single session we will follow a Very Brief Cognitive Behavioural Coaching (VBCBC) approach. Further details on this method can be found here.
During our work together you will:
- Set a development objective or a goal to overcome a problem
- Devise an action plan to achieve that objective/goal
- Identify and deal with any obstacles that may hinder you
- Commit to implementing your plan & recognise how to support this
This will help you recognise your own resourcefulness and tackle unhelpful thinking patterns that may be hindering your progress.”
