Dan works as an impact coach for senior managers and executives in both public and private sector organisations. The aim of this type of coaching is to help the coachee find their own level of skill and comfort to achieve their goal: finding ways to tackle challenges and self-generated doubts. The first phase involves introducing the coachee to another way of looking at their ‘challenge’ using drama exercises as a means of connecting with their own strengths. The second phase gives the coachee tools and techniques to help them better understand how to handle this ‘challenge’.
Dan also works with executive coaches and their clients, complementing their existing coaching relationship by creating an appropriate simulation of the coachees challenge. This is a valuable intervention which has great benefit for the coaching relationship allowing the executive coach to see the client ‘in action’ and share the moment where a behaviour has been revealed, allowing for further exploration of the coaching client’s challenge and their related behaviour.
