COACHING & EMERGENETICS

Our mission is to help people to think for themselves. Sounds simple and yet there is so much that get’s in the way of this in the busyness of corporate life. The steady stream of competing priorities, fuzzy goals, distractions and assumptions sabotage our attempts to think well and to think for ourselves, in a pure sense, without any external influence. 

We provide the space to think about what matters

We use both coaching and Emergenetics® (our psychometric of choice) to create in-depth conversations that spark that high quality thinking in others. We want people to value their own thinking, to understand how truly unique they are, and to prize this as a real gift to themselves and the others around them. Our ability to create environments where good thinking is inevitable, allows teams to share diverse opinions and their unique strengths, and that’s the magic that supercharges what comes next.

About Time to Think Coaching®

When working with a Time to Think Coach®, you’ll experience a Thinking Environment® that will allow you to untangle your thinking. We help you to get crystal clear about what you think, how you think, and why you think. We don’t force our thinking on you. We allow you to uncover what you really think before we ever contribute our own thoughts. 

People often work with us because they are facing a massive challenge, or something new, or they want to change something, improve or fix it. It’s not that they don’t know how, it’s more often the case that they haven’t thought about it properly and so remain stuck. That’s when we can help…

MEET BEV – OUR TIME TO THINK COACH®

Coaching in Covid-times takes place online or over the telephone, using a range of platforms according to your preference and available access. Typically, we begin with a minimum of 6 sessions, each lasting between 60 minutes to two hours depending on your needs and availability. 

You are responsible for deciding what to think about but we help you along with a Thinking About Thinking Prep Form that poses some questions that will enable you to think about what will be of most value to you in the coaching sessions. 

Our initial session is about getting to know each other, because the coaching relationship only works if we like and respect one another. We can agree exactly how we’ll work together, the duration and frequency of sessions, what’s on the agenda, what’s not and how we’ll share feedback and maintain confidentiality. Once that important conversation has happened, we can begin the coaching programme. 

Our clients are successful senior professionals in corporate settings. They lead specialist areas where they are considered to have expert knowledge and their contribution to decision making is vital. As well as having ambitious goals and objectives to achieve to create value for the organisation, they have to juggle that with responsibility for leading people and finding ways to achieve success through them.

Emergenetics

About Emergenetics®

Emergenetics® is a simple, clear and tool that draws on the best of psychometrics in a way that makes sense. Unlike some psychometrics that are rigid or create ambiguity, Emergenetics® separates out how we prefer to think and the way we behave.

Your personality is a powerful combination of your genetic strengths together with your life experiences. Emergenetics provides a distinct view into what really makes you tick. Through seven Attributes, it provides the blueprint to achieve greater self-awareness, enhance communication and build more productive workplaces. In doing so, it opens up a world of possibility, potential and opportunity. 

MEET KATE – OUR EMERGENETICS® EXPERT

Emergenetics® is a powerful, yet easy-to-remember psychometric. It is supported by a Narrative Report that explains how each profile impacts on how individuals lead, communicate and collaborate.

Its uses are varied. As an individual we can offer a coaching approach split into 2 or more sessions – initially to explore the profile and its meaning, then to deepen understanding of thinking and behavioural preferences and the impact this has on communication and relationship building.

In teams, we offer a Meeting of the Minds session as a “powerful experience for any organisation seeking to strengthen communication, improve collaboration and build a positive workplace culture” (Emergenetics). The sessions allow the whole team to discover their unique profiles and then to work as a team to review what that could mean in terms of areas such as communication, conflict and creativity. These sessions can be run online (for up to 30 people) or face-to-face (for 10 to 50 people, or more in a conference style situation).  Follow up individual sessions can also be offered to provide space for reflection and deeper insight.

Everyone who receives a profile also gains access to the Emergenetics+ app and online portal. Here they can receive customised tips to strengthen communication and collaboration. The app also allows them to connect with others in the business to share and view profiles.

INTRODUCING OUR COACHING TEAM

Jon Bartlett

Jon says…”I love working with Kate and Bev as we espouse very similar values. I have a personal mantra “Seek knowledge and adventure, be open, kind and loyal“.

I love being curious and finding out what other people think and believe, what motivates and inspires them. I bring this to my work as a coach, aiming to see people as they truly are. I aim to be human by being open and kind to those around me. Above all, I love an adventure – whether that is a hike or working with a client.

Those moments of profound thought and consideration are what makes working as a coach so fulfilling.”

Janet Woods

Janet says…” Every day we have 50,000 conversations with ourselves, what is your conversation like? I am passionate about helping people understand and harness their own uniqueness.

The most important step in being human is to start to understand what makes you tick, concentrate on your strengths and use positive language to affirm how you will face challenges.

Be bold and ask others for feedback. Understanding yourself will really shape your connections, build self-belief and self-worth, and help you to develop great relationships with others.”

Bridie Philpotts

Bridie says…”Being bold means doing things that scare you such as having the courage to speak up about your convictions and staying true to your values and beliefs. Boldness requires confidence, courage and being a measured risk-taker. It may be uncomfortable, but the rewards are great.

Being curious helps to broaden the mind. Ask questions, gain knowledge through reading, listening and being interested in alternative and opposite opinions. In times of change and uncertainty curiosity will broaden understanding of new situations, help you to approach them with positivity and confidence and strengthen your relationships.”

Helen Amery

Helen says…”Thoughtful is a word that’s been used to describe me. I’ve always been fascinated by the nature of people and behaviour. I came across an understanding that much of the thinking I was doing was making me “thought-full”. The more I saw this, the less that thinking looked worth paying attention to, and the less it impacted my experience.

What came was a more human Helen. There was a deep understanding of how all that thought-full-ness gets us lost. This is the sole cause of all upset, stress, overwhelm. Given this changed my life, I now love to share it with others so it can change theirs’ too.”

Simone Ingram

Simone says… “We all hold biases and can be quick to judge ourselves and others.  I replace judgement with curiosity and approach people with a curious mindset – using listening and enquiry to enable greater understanding of their aspirations, goals and any beliefs that could be hindering them. 

Being bold means daring to uphold your beliefs and values and being prepared to take risks and face your fears. This takes both courage and may result in feelings of discomfort, but it will always result in something new.  I love that through my coaching, I can encourage people to be bold and seize their aspirations.”

Wendy Aspland

Wendy says… “Curiosity is what underpins our personal growth. Being curious about who we are, what we do and why, helps us to be the best version of ourselves. I like to explore the non-linear, and love to support my clients with their own sense of curiosity and possibility.

Thoughtful is a word people have used to describe me. In a world that is complex and constantly busy, it’s crucial that we find the space for thought and calm. Then we can be clear about what’s most important and allow our creativity to flourish. I help clients to create their unique conditions that enable them to thrive and be successful in their roles.”

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING ABOUT COACHING?

My coaching time with Bev is invaluable to both myself and the business in which I operate. It allows me the space and time to think about things I didn’t even know I needed to think about! I love the lightbulb moments I get 40mins into a session on how to go about things differently, what I need to change, how I can tackle a problem, which I would never be able to do in an ordinary working day. It never fails to surprise me how a seemingly innocent question or prompt will enable me to think differently about a situation or challenge which results in an exciting solution. I always leave the sessions energised and with great clarity of thought on what I need to do next to build on my successes.
