The Corporate and Executive Coaching Organisation
CECO works to a clear set of values which underpin its ability to provide the best possible coaching services.
A commitment to providing a quantifiable return on investment:
CECO can demonstrate measurable returns on the coaching carried out for clients based on criteria agreed and measured on commencement of the coaching contract.
A position at the leading edge in thinking and practice in corporate coaching:
Much of what other coaches are now starting to introduce has been practiced by CECO coaches for a number of years:
- Setting the coaching relationship up for success;
- Aligning coaching to business vision, strategy and corporate values;
- Engaging coaching programme sponsors in collating and agreeing the measures of success;
- Understanding that coaching has to be measured through a return on investment;
- Engaging the client’s sponsor or line manager in agreeing their strengths and development areas;
A commitment to extending professional standards in coaching practice as a whole:
Vicki Espin, as part of the steering group of ENTO, has been instrumental in developing the National Occupational Standards for Coaching and Mentoring.
An appreciation that excellent corporate coaching requires a sound understanding of corporate culture:
Both Neil Espin and Vicki Espin have extensive experience of roles within UK and multi-national ‘blue chip’ organisations giving them experience of the corporate environment beyond that of many coaches.
A belief that the way forward for corporate coaching is for organisations to train in-house coaches:
External coaches will always be necessary for senior executives but a consistent quality of coaching can best be achieved through training your own coaches.
“Your coaching abilities are impressive. Through a variety of flexible and balanced approaches combining great subtlety and wisdom and including active challenge and question you have shown that I can have the life I want. In using the techniques of question and challenge at no stage whatsoever did I ever feel threatened, self conscious or inadequate. This is indeed testimony to your skill as a coach; despite challenge and question, I consistently emerged with resultant greater confidence, enhanced self knowledge, sense of purpose and direction.”
