Our 4 Key Anchors

Whilst our approach is tailored to the individual, there are 4 key “anchors” around which the coaching conversations can be facilitated. This provides a framework for discussions and stimulation of ideas.

Each element of the model is interdependent and each session’s discussion is likely to touch upon all 4 elements.
