We have an extensive network of executive coaches throughout the UK and globally. All our coaches are trained to postgraduate level, usually by us, and commit to regular supervision and continuing professional development with us. All our coaches have Barefoot’s required combination of technical expertise, psychological understanding, commercial sense and professional credibility.
Whatever you are looking for we can find the right coach for you. Our coaches include former CEOs of multinational companies who can offer a blend of coaching and mentoring to senior leaders and coaches and we have coaches with substantial experience in almost any sector you can name.
We also have coaches who are registered and practicing psychotherapists. Many of our coaches have particular niche specialisms such as family coaching, career coaching or coaching for retirement. We can also source coaches who work in a variety of languages other than English.
Coaching is now recognised as one of the most effective professional development interventions. We can provide executive coaching on almost any business-related topic.
Kim Morgan, MD of Barefoot, can also provide coaching on some of the common traits which have the potential to derail leaders in their work, as discussed in the Coach's Casebook – traits such as perfectionism, procrastination, fierce independence and people pleasing.
We are experts in matching coach and client. We will usually put forward two or three coaches from amongst the hundreds of Barefoot associates and telephone “chemistry” conversations will help you to decide which coach you would like to work with.
Whichever coach you choose, you can be secure in the knowledge that all our coaches are professionally trained and supervised by Barefoot in their coaching work.
In an organisational setting, coaching support may include three-way meetings with line managers and issues such as lines of communication and confidentiality will always be discussed and clearly contracted.
"I have worked with Kim Morgan and Barefoot Coaching for over 6 years, both on a personal and professional basis. The standard of service provided by Barefoot is exemplary and I would not hesitate to recommend them.
My own performance has improved, in addition to that of my team. I commissioned one to one coaching for members of the executive team. Barefoot coaching were able to match skills and styles accordingly. They were very flexible and as a result the coaching was 'tailor made' to suit individual requirements. The feedback I have received from executive colleagues has been extremely positive and I have noticed an overall improvement in insight and responses to challenges faced.
Barefoot Coaching work with many public sector organisations but also with the private and voluntary sector. This is an added benefit as they have access to a wide range of networks and expertise and bring freshness to the NHS from working across the sectors.
I would not hesitate in recommending them to other organisations."
