Coach & Mentoring Solutions

Coach & Mentoring Solutions is a specialist consultancy that helps sports and business coaches perform to their highest potential. We’ve delivered major coach development programmes on four continents for organisations.

Our track record in mentoring is equally strong, from helping coaches through their qualifications to supporting international players like Serge Betsen and Mike Catt in their transition to coaching.

Whether you need mentoring or delivery for specific qualifications or input in developing completely bespoke programmes, we can provide the solution to achieve your objectives.

What does mentoring actually do?
Here’s a definition:

‘To support and encourage people to manage their own learning in order that they may maximise their potential, develop their skills, improve their performance and become the person that they want to be.’

Eric Parsloe, The Oxford School of Coaching & Mentoring

Why mentoring?

The demand for mentoring is greater than ever before across both business and sport. According to our client British Judo’s Head of Performance, Gary Henderson:

‘In the continuous cycle of sport and business working together, there are two major trends. First, business leaders are developing a more coaching style rather than coercive or didactic ones. Second, there’s a growing realisation of the need for mentors, even if you’re a Chief Executive.

Or as we’d say, mentoring is to help people be as good as they can.

‘Being a CEO or a sports coach is a very lonely place and you need someone there as a confidant with a different perspective to that from inside the organisation. Tony’s great strength as a mentor is his ability to listen, ask questions, set objectives, understand where you are and identify what actions you might need, from more experience to further education or new skills.’

Gary Henderson, Head of Performance Operations, British Judo
