About Ikenga Coaching and Development
What is Ikenga Coaching?
The word 'Ikenga' stands for personal achievement, success and positivity. Ikenga Coaching is all about understanding ourselves and developing a positive mindset to help us to achieve our personal goals and to experience success in our daily lives. Ikenga represents learning from the past and looking ahead to our future and new beginnings. Like a tree, we grow from our well nourished roots and develop branches that reach out to explore our world. We produce leaves and blossom and sometimes shed these to make way for new growth and experiences. This all represents the essence of personal growth, resilience and wellbeing.
What is my approach?
I offer you personal and bespoke coaching, mentoring and development. This is planned and designed with you, to enable you to achieve your goals or simply to feel better about yourself and what you do. This may be linked to your job and career, developing leadership skills, or for personal wellbeing, confidence and building better relationships. You may be coping with changing circumstances, making tricky decisions or dealing with the impact of a loss of confidence and self-belief.
Time and space to think
In my experience we all go through stages in our life journey and some are more challenging than others. Sometimes we just need time and a safe place to think, reflect, explore and share our thoughts. Ikenga Coaching offers this space to think, explore and listen in safety, with curiosity but no judgement, and total confidentiality is guaranteed. This may help you in making a tricky decision or to gain the confidence to do something you've been putting off.
Understanding yourself and others
I believe strongly in the importance of understanding ourselves and having a clear sense of what really matters to us. This is driven by our experience, beliefs and values. In Japanese culture this is known as 'ikigai' and is what helps to motivate us. When we feel a lack of energy and a lowering of mood it can often be due to a loss of our personal identity. Ikenga Coaching offers an opportunity for you to re-connect with your values and discover your 'ikigai' and use this to increase your happiness, wellbeing and zest for life. Through understanding yourself you will develop much more insight about why other people think and behave as they do.
Teams and Organisations
My approach is similar when I work with small teams or larger businesses. The culture at work is influenced by leaders and the company values and behaviours. Identifying values and behaviours and truly embedding them in all that we do ensures our teams and organisations are the best they can be and great places to work!
My coaching supervision sessions are tailored to each client. This is an opportunity to review your coaching practice and your development as a coach. My approach is appreciative and curious, guided by what you need from our time together. I facilitate small group supervision workshops where there is a rich exchange of knowledge, information and tools. This is achieved in an environment of mutual respect, regard and support for each other and can lead to lasting peer support groups.
