Coaching and mentoring motivate people to improve their effectiveness. They go beyond traditional development activities, to get to the heart of individual success. For individuals, our one-to-one learning approach, offers a cost effective and flexible method of developing managers and leaders. It is targeted learning that happens when and where a manager needs it most and which reacts to specific tasks, skills or techniques that need to be achieved and measured. Coaching and mentoring break down the barriers that can prevent the achievement of objectives. They provide structure, motivation and accountability, by encouraging managers to gather a clear perspective and to focus on and achieve success.

Team coaching sample activities:
During my time as Head of Coaching at Grant Thornton, we chose to use Bluesky International due to the reputation of Lise Lewis and the quality of the programmes they deliver.
We put a team of 10 coaches through the EMCC Supervision Accreditation which enabled our coaching service internally to evolve to support the ever growing 100+ coaches we had trained within the business.
Participants found the supervision programme thought provoking and insightful with quality assessment and feedback received throughout.
The Diploma for Professional Coaches is a course which balances the theoretical and practical elements of coaching.
Lise is incredibly knowledgable and is able to trasnfer this to students using a patient, relaxed, fun and professional approach.
Deciding to participate in the training has been one of the best investments I have made for my development as a coach.
Completing the training gives me a platform for providing quality service to my clients but also for ongoing personal development and growth.
The training was both, challenging and rewarding and has been money well spent.
The programme was exactly what I was looking for, delivered by qualified and competent professionals who believe in the power of what they do.
Bluesky provided very down to earth coaches that were approachable and I feel in my time with Bluesky not only did I start to hone my craft in the world of coaching and mentoring but I believe I met two friends for life. In addition I chose their programme because it had a flexible framework that enabled me to work around a busy schedule.
Also to note, I have a disability and the coaches were very supportive and made the learning accessible which is often overlooked when I have studied elsewhere.
Bluesky for me 5 out of 5.
