Business & Executive Coaching

Executive and business coaching is provided as part of all of our long term business growth programmes, but can also be purchased as a discreet service for individuals looking to effect changes with; career progression, leadership challenges, or any aspect of their work that they are finding difficult.

Recree8 can also offer a variety facilitated exercises for groups for any leader looking to help improve communication within their organisation or surface and deal with challenges, and set clear improvement goals.   Group work includes office-based facilitation and also work outdoors or offsite in a rural indoor facility.

Group Coaching & Facilitation

The Recree8 team is able to provide some external influence and structure to meetings to help teams tackle a variety of business situations, such as:-

One to one Coaching

The best results are achieved through engaging in a longer-term programme, but our approach is to encourage all clients to participate in a discovery period to be sure that our practitioners and their client feel that their values are well matched so that the work is as effective as possible.  If we feel that we are not the right practitioners to coach an individual then we will not begin the work.   

Following a successful chemistry conversation, coaching can be delivered in person at an agreed venue, or online using skype or zoom.  We have found that a 4-6 session programme can really help clients get into the driving seat on the journey towards their preferred life. 

Whether you are a leader in an SME, corporate or the 3rd or public sectors looking to progress, or a C suite officer in a business environment looking to make your next move, Recree8 have experienced and well-trained executive coaches who offer a free of charge, no obligation, chemistry conversation with prospective clients.
