External coaches

  • Sometimes it is beneficial to work with an external coach.  An external coach usually works independently or runs a small consultancy offering a coaching service to organisations.  Independent coaches sometimes specialise in specific areas such as management of change, creating a vision and other  leadership issues.  An external coach may also have extensive experience of a specific sector.

    People prefer to work with an external coach because they feel that an external coach can be more objective and also, they are not likely to bump into an external coach at work once the coaching is finished. 

    The factors which might influence you in deciding whether to work with an external coach include cost, availability and the nature of the issue(s) you want to work on.

    OCSLD has a list of preferred external coaches. These people are known to us and have a successful track record as coaches

    Payment for a coaching programme is usually made in advance or after the first session.
