Structural and Civil Engineering Company feedback

“Steve provided us with individual and team coaching services, working with the business owners and senior staff over nine months. Steve’s work gave us rewarding insights into decisions that are critical to the future of the business as the owners approach retirement.”

“Steve’s sensitive approach made it easy for the team to open up and share ideas. He very quickly built the greater confidence that we needed to improve our individual and collective thinking. This allowed us to tease out strengths that we did not realise we had, recognise issues that we were unaware of and resolve them and identify gaps in our business that we need to fill.”

“Working with the PROPHET tool allowed us to share our perspectives on how each of us sees our business operating and this process was very rewarding.”

Law Partner Feedback on Team Coaching

“I found the coaching challenging and I was very anxious in advance because of team dynamic difficulties. I felt supported by Steve Couch and that Steve gave me space to speak.”

“Steve made all of us think about the team dynamic and challenged the easy answers some of us gave as to why there were difficulties. He also asked us to listen to each other properly; something we have not done for a long while.”

“The psychometric testing results which focused on team dynamics were really useful and helped explain some of the obstacles we faced working together effectively. He also helped us to see what some did easily and naturally and what some found more difficult.”

“The coaching sessions have been invaluable in helping the team look at themselves and focus on working as a team – rather than in silos, but also to understand each other more.”
