Trust Support Challenge Change
Dr Jeremy Hinks PCC SFHEA
Trust Support Challenge Change
My way of coaching starts with building a trusting partnership with you. I encourage you to share your thinking and feeling out loud, in areas of exploration that are important to you. My role is to be a thinking and feeling partner, showing curiosity in what you are sharing, without being judgemental. My curiosity will manifest as something that both challenges and supports you as you explore new perspectives that come to the surface. Often the coaching conversation involves a journey into your self-awareness, travelling as widely and deeply as you are comfortable with.
My coaching style is intuitive, responding to what I sense in our coaching partnership. Without being contradictory, my role is to be the novice in the topic areas you bring to coaching at the same time as drawing on my considerable coaching and professional experience to support you in moving forward.
My own belief is that the exploration of difference is valuable in coaching. Difference might be between where you are now and where you want to be; the way you were and the way you are now; your world view as compared to the view of others; between you as the client and me as the coach. Of course the transition between two points of difference relates to the change part of the coaching process, change that you as the client take ownership of by committing to actions that will bring it about.
My interest in exploring difference means that I work with clients at all stages of their career, across all sectors, and from any personal and professional background. It also helped me realise that my coaching niche is captured by the phrase ‘I can coach anyone who wants to be coached by me’. This statement captures a sense of how I do back my capabilities as a coach at the same time as recognising that coaching is only possible when the client is open to exploration of their thoughts and feelings in partnership with me.
Coaching & Training Services
I coach across sectors, at all levels of seniority, and with all ages. My drive is to increase the reach of coaching, and to make it a more welcoming place for people who have perhaps thought that coaching (or becoming a coach) is not for them. With over 350 clients in the last four years, and 1500 hours of coaching, comes the knowledge that my coaching niche is captured in a phrase that has gained real significance for me: I coach anyone who wants to be coached by me.
Group Coaching & Facilitation
All group coaching and facilitation projects start with a consultation, leading to a bespoke provision whose purpose is to encourage conversation between participants, ensuring all voices are heard and listened to. In facilitation I might structure the session around some particular activities while in group coaching the coaching methodology evolves with the needs of the group. I have worked with peer teams and vertical teams in both public and private sectors.
Behaviour Preference Profiling
If you are looking for the best Psychometric test, I would look no further than Lumina Spark Profiling. As a Lumina Learning practitioner, I believe that the Spark & Emotion profiles offer amazing insights into our underlying, everyday & over extended personas. Its real value is in the conversations it triggers in 1-2-1 coaching and with your colleagues in group coaching.
I work with a number of partner coaches and organisations. My partnerships serve one of three purposes: to ensure that my coaching can scale-up to medium and large coaching projects; to offer additional perspectives to my training services through intellectual partnerships; to fulfil a social purpose common between me and my partners.
What my Clients say...
Since the coaching I have successfully secured a promotion. I find that I am able to make more time to reflect on my thoughts and decisions and am comfortable in these being challenged. This has allowed me to develop as a manager but also has sparked more decisiveness within my personal life.
I was sceptical at first of how much help 3 x 90 minute sessions could be, but I was proved wrong. I can’t believe the change in myself over the last few months. Jeremy was calm and considerate and really made me feel at ease discussing sensitive topics that I hadn’t discussed before. I would recommend Jeremy to anyone that is experiencing hurdles in their professional life.
I would highly recommend Jeremy as a Coach. He is patient, a very good listener, knows how to guide you in the right direction with humour, wisdom and sometimes gentle persuasion. I had a genuine ‘Lightbulb’ moment and am able to see more clarity in my own thinking, regarding future projects.
Training & Public Speaking
I can create bespoke training/coaching programmes for you drawing on my public and private sector experience, specialist knowledge of coaching skills, leadership, process efficiency, and change management. My USP is the connections that I can make across these areas for the benefit of my participants. I am also an experienced public speaker on the topics above,
