If you’re dedicated to changing the way your organisation thinks and acts, you’ve taken the first step. Next, you need to turn your vision into reality.
Facilitating change can be exciting, but can also be exhausting. To take people through change effectively, we need to give them individual support; and this can be difficult at the best of times, let alone when everyone is already up to their ears!
Make things easier for everyone by incorporating leadership coaching and mentoring.
Our coaching and mentoring programmes build the skills and insight you need, and to support you through the process. Our experience has shown us that having an objective observer to listen, to motivate and support you – the change leaders – can make all the difference.
Coaching is about working with you to maximise your potential, giving you the headspace to create solutions. Through a supportive and confidential space, we will explore anything that’s blocking your way. Coaching helps you to observe work situations objectively, and mindfully, and become fully aware of your personal impact.
Some of the themes we would work through are listed below.
- Your purpose, values and priorities
- What work means to you, in the life context
- Personal vision setting and planning to realise goals
- Strengthening your strengths
- Personal inquiry, understanding your reactions and responses to experiences
- Your role in supporting others
Mentoring is where the mentor brings a lot more of their own experience and specific expertise into the room. It’s a space where you and your mentor can work as a team, putting your heads together to focus on building your capabilities. We will use real life and real time challenges and obstacles and work through these systematically, to help you to achieve your goals.
Some themes that we could focus on for mentoring are listed below:
- Confident leadership
- Dealing with ambiguity
- Making sense of complexity
- Leading others through change with empathy
- Working with agile in a waterfall world
- A mindful approach to delivery
- Dealing with conflict
We will work with you to identify who needs individual support, whether this is you or someone in your team. Then, we work with the individuals to understand the shape of support the need across coaching and mentoring.
We’ll do a chemistry session to ensure it’s the right fit, then we’ll agree an initial number of sessions (usually five), which will happen weekly, fortnightly or monthly.
We’ll check in after each block of sessions to see how well we’re doing, check in on progress and how both parties are feeling, and decide whether more sessions are needed.

Kelly brought a coaching approach and a positive ‘can-do’ attitude that has already driven significant change in our charity. She got up to speed with what we do in no time at all and took a genuine interest in our mission, helping us to bring our strategy and vision to life, and to understand how technology can lead to greater impact. An expert in her field, Kelly carries her authority and expertise without imposing herself and is respected by the team. Through Kelly’s mentoring, my senior leadership team and I have a far better understanding of the potential of digital, as well as a clear vision and roadmap for change. Through the Kivo network, Kelly has also introduced us to many expert consultants who have been indispensable in our transformation journey.

Kelly is a tremendous coach. She is clear about her role and yours, she is a great listener, and she keeps you accountable. With her support I identified tangible, realistic goals and moved towards them. More importantly though, I understand myself better, both personally and in a professional sense. I would thoroughly recommend working with her.

Kelly is a professional, experienced coach that has helped me a lot in our coaching sessions. She is very approachable and has a unique way to help you realise your strengths and identify your weaknesses on the journey to significant life changes. Her constant enthusiasm and encouragement contribute to her successful approach to life coaching.
Kelly, thank you so much!

Kelly helped me work through a lot of old patterns of thinking, and find new ways to approach new career opportunities. I was carrying around baggage from some rather negative past work experiences, and working with Kelly helped me make sense of them so I could let them go and move forward. I feel very much clearer in what I do and don’t want from my worklife, and am much more peaceful within myself.
