Emenex launches new Coaching For Success Programme.
12 November 2012
Few today would argue that coaching is an effective business tool for maximising the productivity and performance of employees, helping individuals to overcome challenges and achieve personal objectives.
Set that alongside the ‘big issue’ of the day – how to maximise employee engagement and contribution – and you can quickly see the need for more qualified coaches who share a passion for developing people and an ability to help others engage with the challenges they’re grappling with.
To meet that need, Emenex have recently launched a Coaching for Success programme to help those who are looking for a more effective way of tapping into the discretionary contribution of their employees. Accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) at Level 5 and packed with opportunities to learn, discuss, challenge, share and practice their coaching skills, this hands-on programme will help participants to rapidly gain skills that transfer directly into their next planned coaching session.
The programme is structured around two 2-day face-to-face training sessions and two 1-day sessions, with ‘real’ coaching sessions in-between. Supervision is structured so that learning from participants’ own experience is planned in a safe and learner-focused training environment.
Programme Director, John Schonegevel, a Master in Executive Coaching from Ashridge School of Management, said of the new programme:
“This programme can make a profound difference to the capacity of leaders to lead, managers to manage and individuals to contribute to their organisation’s success.
We've structured the programme to enable delegates to learn safely, to apply that learning in their workplace and then to reflect on that learning. It therefore follows coaching best practice, and serves as a role model for applying coaching at work.”
One of the participants of the pilot programme, Angela Gallacher, of Salford University stated:
“Working as a counselor with HE students highlighted some quite specific areas of work which sometimes I felt did not fit into the truly 'counseling' area. I decided to find out more about mentoring and coaching… My search for an ILM coaching course eventually led me to Emenex. I can remember being very nervous as I prepared to meet my course members on the first morning in the Holiday Inn in Stratford, indeed I asked myself several times what was I doing! The feeling soon went and I can only describe those first 2 days as inspirational. It's difficult to describe what was inspirational because that was very much about the interaction of the course members and how open, empathic, compassionate and challenging we were able to be, which enabled me to learn more about myself as well as coaching. The structure of the course has fitted well with my job and has allowed time for reflection.”
The next programme groups are scheduled to start in the latter half of January 2013, with groups meeting at venues in Leeds (15th - 16th January) and Reading (23rd - 24th January).

New Global Novations Research Launched at UK Breakfast Briefing
23 February 2012
Emenex co-hosted Paul Terry, Vice President International at Global Novations, for the launch of the latest Global Novations, Four Stages™ of Contribution, research. Paul’s presentation, entitled “Engaging Employees for Optimal Contribution in a Challenging Economy – What the MacLeod Report Didn’t Teach You", explored the findings of the research and what employees and their managers can do in order to increase their engagement, contribution and satisfaction in the workplace.
Learning and Development managers from a cross-section of organisations including Lloyds Bank, G4S and Grovesnor discussed the findings of the latest research that highlighted that almost 50% of managers are contributing independently rather than leveraging their teams, leaving $ billions of contribution untapped, while a large gap continues to exist between how employees and managers assess their contribution.
If you are interested in receiving a copy of the latest research and finding out more about how its conclusions can help you better tap into the discretionary contribution of your employees please contact us.
Organisational Challenges Survey
06 January 2012
In November 2011, Emenex Ltd conducted a survey to answer the question “What issues are causing organisations ‘pain’, now and into 2012? Invitations were sent to organisations in the private, public and third sectors, to see how these different sectors are being affected by the current economic challenges. The results, whilst perhaps not surprising, are interesting. The survey revealed that • the public and third sectors share the same top two concerns - limited funding/ resources and coping with change • the private sector's top two concerns are market uncertainty and increased competition • the private sector’s 3rd and 4th place concerns are the same as the public & third sectors’ top two So despite very different markets and sources of finance, in times of economic constraint the key issues facing each sector are very similar.
