Executive Development with Enlighten

'Leaders instil in their people a hope for success and a belief in themselves. Positive leaders empower people to accomplish their goals.'

Executives today are aware of the persistent pressure to increase performance despite the effect of changes which are outside their control. Continuous change in the world in which we work means that leaders must also change and apply fresh and new strategies to ensure continued success.

The rate of change in a rapidly innovative world is likely to accelerate - How can you stay ahead of this?

* Commitment to the corporate vision is strengthened/revitalised

The Power of Coaching

'It has become clear to me that I am the only one who has the answers to my questions. If there is anything I focus on it is to ask the right questions, in the right way. All you need is to find the right coach whose focus will help you open the doorways to your own solutions.' Adrian Gilpin - Unstoppable People

Business Coaching

Business Coaching involves helping you improve your performance and is often about the make up of excellence and making what is good even better.

Business Coaching will help you consider how to get the best out of your staff; your colleagues and your boss, as well as helping you to identify your own strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and fears.

Owners might employ business coaches at any stage of the business, including:

* start-up and business planning
* learning to delegate
* building a team structure
* resolving changing relationships
* introducing management processes
* developing a marketing plan
* expansion, new project
* business turnaround
* sale or purchase

Business Coaching can benefit the individual and the organisation. Coaching has a proven history and is known to be successful in developing leadership; it can also support individuals through challenging transition periods where change may reveal vulnerabilities in individual skills, or where past issues may have brought barriers to success. Coaching is frequently offered to aspiring managers and leaders as a motivator towards increased future success.

We work on a wide range of issues. Often, this begins with one of the following:

* One to one Coaching for you.
* Leadership Team Coaching for your Senior Team.
* Leadership Development or Training for your Managers.

Personal Life Coaching With Enlighten

"Every great journey starts with one small step."

Personal Life Coaching focuses in a holistic way on any aspect of your life that you would like to improve

For example, a Life Coach could help you increase your self confidence, improve your self awareness, and raise your self esteem. Coaching may focus on you developing a plan for your life in an action focused, structured manner. It may challenge your own perception of what is and isn't possible such as becoming more assertive with your friends and family or tackling people and situations you have avoided for fear of failure or being rejected.

Coaching can help you through times of stress such as changing job or even profession. It could support you through the realization of a project such as starting a business.

Whatever your focus is, coaching will help you overcome any personal blocks and support you in taking control of your life and achieving your goals.

About Enlighten

Enlighten was founded by John Pritchard. John enjoys success as a personal and professional development professional. The founder of Enlighten Coaching John specialises in helping business leaders and managers achieve greater success and fulfilment through business coaching techniques and professional development training.

John trained as a fine artist before moving to the south of England to gain his Secondary teaching qualification at The Institute of Education University College London. After teaching with Infant age children he was inspired to qualify as a Primary teacher at Greenwich University and pursue a Primary career.

'The thing I loved about young children was that they believed that they could do anything! Somewhere along the way we lose that belief in ourselves.'

After a successful career as a class teacher and then deputy head he became a head teacher. His clear vision for learning ensured that he lead his school to success. His style has been described as, 'dynamic, purposeful and clearly focused.'

'I always believed that learning should be fun and that teachers needed to be motivational. If we don't want to learn, we simply don't. Good teachers and coaches tap into that emotion and that desire to progress.'

John has completed N.P.Q.H and L.P.S.H with the National College of School Leadership. He has accredited training for Self Evaluation and an Advanced Diploma in Management from Christ College Canterbury. As well as having experience of coaching within an academic setting, John has trained with The Coaching Academy.

He is currently carrying out research with Greenwich University into the relationship between motivation, emotion and learning.

John works with a network of associate coaches and trainers who work on various Enlighten projects. He lives in Kent with his wife and daughter.

Our Vision

At Enlighten we believe that the solution to many of life's challenges lie within ourselves.

The skill to leading a fulfilling and successful life can rest on whether or not you can discover within yourself the right solution at the right time. Often 'time' is the key. Time to reflect, and to think. It is a fact that we live in a world were time itself is the most costly of commodities.

We believe that the gift of time is the most special of gifts we should grant ourselves. Through coaching and personal development training we invest in our future and become closer to our goals. In striving for greater knowledge of ourselves, those that we love, those that we work with, lead and manage, we become more fulfilled. Our lives become enriched and we become lifelong enlightened learners.

Enlighten: 'We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make our world.'

Every client is different. The easiest way to establish how Enlighten can help, and whether you feel that we could work together, is to give us a call. We will not hard sell and believe that people get value out of our initial discussion - whether or not we go on to work together.

Some of our clients' views

C.E.O O-Regen - operates throughout the London Borough of Waltham Forest

'As the owner of a small business I sometimes find it difficult to step back, assess excactly where I want to be and take action to get there.
