Unlock Collective Growth through Group Coaching

What is Group Coaching?

Coaching can support you to make choices, changes, and decisions in your life, whether that is at work, at home or both. Coaching helps you ask yourself questions and make clarity out of confusion. It can help you set and meet goals as well as transform and develop yourself into something new. Our style of coaching supports you to make your own decisions without giving advice or relying on pre-set models.

Christine McDonald

DIRECTOR

In my previous life in adult social care, I honed my report-writing and budget-balancing skills for over a decade. Despite a stellar career on paper, a personal development course triggered a significant shift—revealing a core value: making a tangible difference. No more playing a small cog in a big machine; my passion for change-making conversations was ignited.

Since then, pieces have effortlessly fallen into place. I’ve embraced insights, from understanding psychological safety to the magic of compassionate communication skills. These gems aren’t just shaping my journey; they’re influencing those around me, highlighting what truly matters.

Now certified as a group coach, facilitating conversations about motivations and next steps is my sweet spot. Particularly when individuals realize possibilities they thought were beyond reach. The Conversation Company? It’s like finding my ideal coaching hub, and the bonus: I still craft impeccable reports.

Dr Rachel Robins

DIRECTOR

It all traces back to my dad’s storytelling as I grew up. Despite lacking formal education, he was a repository of knowledge on countless topics. Listening to his tales felt like living in the moment with him. Town outings turned into eavesdropping adventures, speculating about the rest of the story.

Back then, I deemed it mere nosiness, but I’ve since rebranded it as professional curiosity. Over time, I explored the impact of diverse conversations, recognizing their ability to transport us to new realms. This realisation nudged me toward coaching and mentoring, interventions empowering individuals to stride forward with informed positivity.

For me, a structured conversation surpasses casual coffee chat—though it may seem that way to the outside world. Within the dialogue lies a world of insights, emotions, feelings, mindsets, and barriers—an intricate realm beneath the spoken word.

Prof. Tony Wall

ASSOCIATE

Tony has had the privilege of encountering some of the most inspiring conversations in his life, spanning interactions with family, friends, peers, and leaders alike. One particularly cherished moment stands out when a past leader posed the question, “What story do you want to create?” This inquiry, both daunting and empowering, has resonated with Tony for over a decade, serving as a guiding principle.

This pivotal question illuminated that he was entrusted to determine the right path based on the wealth of experience and expertise already within him. Reflecting on this, Tony recognizes that not everyone has had the opportunity to engage in such inspired moments, lacking the relationships or environments conducive to such conversations.

Motivated by this insight, Tony is driven to instigate change. He firmly believes that the landscape can and should evolve to accommodate more of these transformative conversations. Actively participating in processes that facilitate diverse dialogues, Tony particularly values an approach infused with playfulness, both in work and life. Recognizing that play creates an optimal environment for learning and envisioning a new future, he draws parallels to the uninhibited creativity experienced in childhood.
