We use a tailored approach, considering each organisation's unique needs and culture, to provide practical strategies and support throughout the change management process.
  • What should I expect in a coaching session?
    Expect to be gently challenged. To gain the most it’s critical to permit your coach to explore, question, and challenge potentially self-limiting attitudes or behaviours. We look to you to bring; Curiosity. Openness to growth and feedback. Respect and trust. Responsibility for yourself and the actions you undertake. A 'beginners mindset'.
  • What is coaching?
    In a challenging environment, coming together to reflect on pressing problems can generate ideas if individuals engage honestly with challenges. As accredited coaches, we use coaching interventions to help uncover blind spots and act as your guide. We do not provide solutions. Instead, we offer a confidential and safe thinking space. We ask questions that help prompt new ways of thinking. Learning happens through exchange, self-reflection, and your actions and accountability outside of the sessions.
  • Is coaching confidential?
    Yes! Whatever we discuss in the sessions remains confidential. If your organization is paying for your coaching we do not share any details with HR or your boss. It is up to you to share your own progress. The only time we would break confidentiality is in specific circumstances that represent a risk of harm to yourself or others.
  • Does coaching work well online?
    It really does. The majority of our coaching is done virtually now. This means we can be super flexible with arranging the perfect time for your coaching session.
  • What is group coaching and who is it for?
    In group coaching, one coach works with several individuals simultaneously, helping them harness the power to help each other. Learning happens through thinking out loud, exchanging, listening, self-reflection, and your actions and accountability outside of the sessions. Group coaching is for individuals who 1) are from the same organisation but have different teams that they work on day to day or 2) individuals from different organisations that have a common professional development goal. Team coaching, on the other hand, is specifically designed for individuals from the same organization who work together day to day on the same projects. This approach focuses on enhancing team dynamics, communication, and collaboration to achieve shared goals.
  • What is team coaching?
    It is similar to group coaching.
  • What outcomes can I get from coaching?
    It depends on you. We fully expect great results to come from our session(s), but we cannot guarantee any specific outcomes or that all clients will achieve the same results. The results are entirely dependent on your commitment and the effort you put into the sessions and any actions you decide on.
  • What should I look for in a coach?
    Firstly, training and accreditation! Coaching is unregulated, which means you can unwittingly hire a coach with no formal training. Most Kinkajou coaches possess a Master's in Coaching Psychology and Positive Psychology and are accredited by professional bodies like the European Mentoring & Coaching Council (EMCC). At Kinkajou, our coaches are carefully selected based on their extensive experience, specialised knowledge, and genuine passion for helping clients succeed. We prioritise coaches committed to creating a safe and supportive environment for our clients to explore new possibilities, challenge their limiting beliefs, and achieve their personal and professional goals. Secondly, your coach should take their responsibilities seriously. Before you take part in coaching, it is important that we have a clear understanding of where the boundaries of that responsibility lie. Kinkajou coaches only provide coaching that we are qualified to give. We commit to being open-minded, nonjudgmental, focused, transparent, considerate, and respectful and undertake any preparation that might be necessary to work with you effectively. We agree to maintain the ethics and standards established by the EMCC, ensuring you can trust in our services. Finally, trust, rapport, and a strong coaching relationship are fundamental to our approach at Kinkajou, and we strive to match each client with a coach who can best support their unique needs and aspirations.
  • How many coaching sessions do I need?
    It depends on you. Everyone is different. Although we offer coaching programs with a set number of sessions, we can add more sessions if you need more.
  • Can I use the UK Government's Access to Work scheme to pay for Neurodivergent-friendly coaching services?
    Yes, you can use the UK Government's Access to Work scheme to pay for coaching services from our company. The Access to Work grant specifically covers funding for practical support like ADHD coaching to help individuals with conditions like ADHD start work, stay in work, or become self-employed. The grant can fund accommodations people with ADHD have successfully requested, including ADHD coaching.
  • Do you provide coaching for entrepreneurs?
    Yes, at Kinkajou, we specialise in providing personalised coaching services for entrepreneurs.
