Values are the principles that guide our thinking and drive our behaviour.


When we are behaving and acting in accordance with our values, there is a sense of alignment, fulfilment and purpose.word cloud core values related items 34930794word cloud core values related items 34930794

When we or others transgress our values, there is dissonance, stress and pain. Arguably, it is not possible to know yourself or others until you know your values.

Therefore, values are at the heart of our coaching model.


What is Values-based Coaching?


Values-based Coaching is a transformative coaching organisation, which uses our own model based on the seven pillars of ‘Values-based Education’ while also blending best practice from other disciplines as we see fit in each context.

All coaching touches on values, albeit to varying degrees.

Values-based Coaching focuses explicitly on what is at the core of the individual, team or organisation – what is driving them forwards, what are their motivators - and what is holding their growth back.

In the coaching ‘space’, people are challenged to look beyond ‘what they do’ and ask themselves ‘how to be’.

When we are in an environment where we can’t live our values, we don’t function as effectively as we could, we don’t perform at our best and we don’t reach our potential.

By exploring our values and why we do what we do, we can become clearer on what we choose to do and how we do it.


Who is Values-based Coaching for?


There has been a recent surge in schools looking at various forms of coaching as being an important part of their Continued Professional Development programme.

Research from the Coaching in Education Annual Survey Report 2017 reported that 85% of survey participants agreed that being coached led to an improvement in their professional practice.
