Mick Lavin Coaching offers Leadership Coaching, Mentoring, Teams, and Agile Transformation
Coaching & Mentoring
Coaching is a professionally guided process that inspires coachees to maximise their personal and professional potential. It is a structured, purposeful and transformational process. It helps coachees to see and test alternative ways for improvement of competence, decision making and enhancement of quality of life. Coach and coachee work together in a partnering relationship on strictly confidential terms. In this relationship, coachees are experts on the content & decision making level. The coach is an expert in professionally guiding the process.
The Coach will ask the questions that help the coachee discover their own way forward. A Coach cannot tell the coachee what to do, but a Coach can help them understand all the options available to them. We are sometimes blind to our own capabilities and the opportunities around us. A Coach can help the coachee understand their own potential, and provide a mirror for them to see their true reflection.
Mentoring is a learning relationship, involving the sharing of skills, knowledge, and expertise between a mentor and mentee through developmental conversations, experience sharing, and role modelling. The relationship may cover a wide variety of contexts and is an inclusive two-way partnership for mutual learning that values differences.
As a Mentor, Mick can help you develop your Leadership skills. Mentoring differs a little from Coaching in the way we experience context. What the Mentor brings to the conversation is real life experience, an understanding of the context, and stories that can be shared based on that experience. A Mentor will share their knowledge and experience but it is up to the Mentee to come with the answers. This is not a teaching relationship, it is a learning relationship where both Mentee and Mentor will learn from each other. The benefit to the Mentee is hindsight from the Mentor and foresight for the Mentee.

Leadership & Executive Coaching
Leadership is complicated. Are you ready to lead your team towards the vision you create? As your Coach I can help you reflect on the leader you are, and the leader you wish to be. I hold a mirror for you to see how you present as a leader and what will serve you best in your journey to being the best leader you can be.
With more than 30 years in the international business environment, I can help you dig deep and understand the situation you are in, and how it could be different.
Team Coaching has recently become a major topic of discussion. Many organisations have struggled during the pandemic and are working hard to help their teams work in this remote, disjointed, geographically dispersed world. The goalposts are changing on a daily basis, hybrid-work has become increasingly common, and teams have never felt so far apart.
A Team Coach can help you and your teams to rediscover their purpose. Team Coaches can help your teams become true value-creators and establish a collaborative and cooperative environment.
According to the Business Agility Institute: “Business Agility is a set of organizational capabilities, behaviors, and ways of working that affords your business the freedom, flexibility, and resilience to achieve its purpose. No matter what the future brings.“
How can your organisation become resilient, flexible, and have the freedom to achieve its purpose? Perhaps you have already started and need a little nudge. Perhaps you are yet to start and need someone to bounce your ideas off.
With more than 30 years experience, in a number of countries, and industries, I can help you understand where you are now and where you wish to go.
