Working with Praesta

Working with one of our executive coaches is a rewarding, enjoyable experience that clients find stretching and stimulating. They feel safe and supported too, because what goes on between the client and the coach is entirely confidential. We create a space in which clients can talk about what’s on their mind, share insights, come up with alternatives and rehearse their next steps. It’s an enjoyable, rewarding and enriching experience.

Our job is to help clients succeed. We apply our skill and expertise to their individual circumstances, work hard to understand their agenda and design our contribution accordingly. We don’t have a fixed approach. A Praesta coach acts as a sounding board; challenges thinking; stimulates creativity; provides tools and techniques for dealing with situations; gives encouragement; and builds confidence.

The coach has unconditional positive regard for the client, has no agenda other than the client’s and is always on the client’s side. Together with good personal chemistry - which is essential - this builds a working partnership based on trust.

Every client gets the benefit of fresh thinking as well as deep experience. Behind the scenes, we devote a lot of time to our own professional development. This keeps us at the top of our game and makes sure we have interesting things to say that add value to our clients.

As a result of the coaching experience, clients develop their potential and apply it productively in the workplace. The more they practice their new skills, the better they get. Experience shows that clients tackle bigger challenges with more confidence and skill; and achieve better results for their organisations and for themselves. And because coaching is an investment in the client’s own capability, it pays back year after year after year.
