What U&I do

One-to-one coaching

and mentoring


Coaching and mentoring sessions are acknowledged to be one of the most focused and effective ways to help people think more clearly, learn new skills and perform better. Designed around you, your business and your issue, they can make an immediate and deep difference.


• Executive coaching – sharing ideas, discussing concerns and even being challenged is a key part of improving businesses, so who do Directors and Chief Executives turn to as their sounding boards? We work with them to help re-energise and motivate them and to bring clarity and direction to their thoughts through our coaching.


• Leadership coaching – good business leaders recognise that they can’t ‘do it on their own’, and understand that the success of their business will come through their people. We work with them to identify what ‘leadership’ means in their company and to translate it into day-to-day practice that will yield lasting results.


• Management coaching – managers have the power to influence business in all directions, managing staff, colleagues and their relationships with their line managers more effectively. We work with managers at all levels tailoring support to individual needs, experience and confidence and designing practical tools, techniques and tips to use immediately.


• Personal development planning – Any training and development paid for by a business should provide a clear return on investment, but often people go through training they fail to put into practice, in spite of good intentions. We can help protect your investment and provide staff with the support needed to apply their learning and break down any barriers they face, so that their learning impacts on business improvement. In addition, we can provide coaching for HR professionals to help develop an ongoing strategy for continuing this cost effective approach.


• Business mentoring and coaching – improving profitability, increasing sales and planning for the future of your business will really benefit from well-informed, targeted, strategic support. We work with directors, managers and entrepreneurs to help them ensure they make the most of their business now and in the future.


• Business start-up mentoring – a new business venture is an exciting time – full of opportunity and anticipation as well as potential pitfalls. We’ve plenty of direct experience of building successful business and use that to inform our mentoring service, providing advice, guidance and support through those crucial early stages.
