Leading in today's world of diverse teams, relentless business pressure and constant change is a challenge. As a leader you need to know yourself in detail, understand the motivations and values that fuel your purpose, recognise your strengths so you can play to them and develop the ability to self-manage when under stress or pressure. The Tapping the Source coaching process will empower you by creating the opportunity for critical insights to surface that lead to actions that have a measurable impact.
Achieving a high performing team is the holy grail for most leaders and managers. It takes science, feedback from internal and external stakeholders and a lot of hard work over time to create a team that can perform at its best and flex to accommodate the inevitable changes it will face over time. A high performing team has some core components that are universal and timeless which combined with leadership, communication and commitment can produce results that many working groups can only wish for.
Leadership and team immersions provide the space for simultaneous self-reflective and group-reflective work, embodiment practices, generative dialogue, deep listening, and transformational learning. This approach specialises in agile leadership and the application of systems-thinking and living-systems logic to systemic leadership capacities which aid leaders self-awareness and systemic-awareness. Tapping the Source partners with The Future Fit Leadership Academy to provide these unique experiences.
Self-awareness is that critical soft skill that acts like a psychological catalyst for all of the traditional hard skills required to be an effective leader. Your personal values, drivers, strengths and potential derailers determine what kind of culture you create as a leader. A high quality psychometric leadership assessment will provide a lense from which to view your personality in a structured, highly reliable and valid way. It will provide you with a personality map so you can tune your performance.
Research evidence shows that truly outstanding leaders and teams succeed because they are exceptional at some facet of their performance. This does not mean that they do not have development needs too, but what truly sets them apart as outstanding is that they play to their strengths whenever they can. These standout strengths are your leadership spike, your line management, direct reports and peers will often already recognise them, can you afford not to know them?
In our highly complex, fast-paced and uncertain world it is often unseen pressure and stress that can compromise your ability to achieve peak performance. Mindfulness comes from the consistent practice of techniques that enable you to tap into your mind and body to experience the confidence, focus and emotional balance required to perform as your best self regardless of the environment. Developing the ability to tap into your own resourcefulness is a skill practised by many successful leaders.

Our approach is flexible so we are able to work with the aspirations, challenges and complexity you bring to coaching. Our coaching practice is built on the solid executive coaching foundation from the Oxford Brookes University, School of Coaching. Our key influences come from the developmental and performance approaches required for higher quality executive coaching. We often use leadership psychometrics and 360 degree analysis to provide you with key data about your personality and the impact you have on people you work with. This ensures the areas you work on create the changes you want to make.
