Necton Consulting - Potential in People

A little bit about NECTON CONSULTING


Necton Consulting's purpose is to transform through coaching the way you and your people work together to create a motivated and profitable organisation.


The tools and techniques used are based on psychological research and are proven to succeed.


Individual coaching


Individual coaching is a one to one relationship to enable individuals to become more successful at work and in their careers. It is beneficial for everyone, but particularly those with significant potential and other key people. It helps in the following ways:

•        Developing skills to transition to a leadership or other management position.

•        Restructuring an organisation.

•        Finding your direction at a turning point in your career.

•        Reaching your full potential and achieving your goals.

•        Increasing your confidence and resilience.

•        Implementing or adapting to significant organisational change.

•        Developing a specific skill such as delegating or speaking to a large audience.

•        Setting up a new business.


Each coaching session lasts between 60 and 90 minutes and normally takes place every 4 to 6 weeks. To achieve lasting change, 6 sessions are usually required. The sessions will typically be face to face and on your premises or nearby. They may also be held at Necton Consulting’s premises, via Skype or Zoom, or by phone.

Team and Project Team Coaching


Team and project team coaching works to enhance the interactions of a team or project team and is tailored to the team’s needs.


Teams benefit from:


•        Bonding together when either new or undergoing significant change

•        Developing a new strategy

•        Forging stronger teams that enhance project delivery capability, increasing the likelihood of delivering projects on time and  to budget


Sessions take place on your premises, according to need. The coach will also be present at key team meetings to facilitate and challenge.
