Niche has the following guiding principles that we follow when coaching:
Challenge - One of the roles we will play is to challenge and provide honest feedback to the participant. This feedback is objective and constructive in nature.
Care – We will ensure the coaching participants’ interests are protected at all times and the sessions are confidential in nature.
Customised – Every individual has different needs and they are unique in what will work for them in coaching. As such our coaching is customised to them rather than prescriptive in nature.
Impact – We support the participant to grow and develop so they can have the results they want from the coaching. While the participant has to be the one to develop their new skills, we will do everything we can to ensure this happens and the impact they want is achieved.
