Metagen Coaching

“A coach is a thinking partner”


The Metagen Coaching Approach

The basis of coaching is to create awareness with the individual of his/her own potential and challenges.

This is done through one of various programmes:

Programme 1

A 360 degree evaluation process is facilitated with the respective team or department to derive at the “coaching agenda” for the individuals of that particular team or department.


A process is facilitated with the individual and manager, focusing on the alignment of business objectives and outcomes expected from the company’s side.


A process is facilitated with only the individual, focusing on his/her own inner resources, to find his/her own “agenda” and solutions in this regard – by way of challenging and thinking questions.

The Metagen Coaching Approach

The coaching process

The coaching process requires the individual to accept responsibility for his/her own outcomes. The coaching process will facilitate the implementation of SMART goals to move from the “now state” to the “desired state”.

In a business context this approach takes full cognisance of the company objectives (360 degree evaluation process) and is action and outcomes based, which incorporates feedback to management during the coaching process.

This approach results in sustainable change in behaviours.

One on one coaching facilitates people to discover solutions for themselves within a safe and confidential environment. Periodic re-enforcement of new behaviours and actions facilitates implementation.

Coaching sessions

During coaching sessions, the individual will discover things about himself or his performance that he is presently unaware of or chooses to ignore referred to as blind spots. Coaching aims to bring these issues clearly into his view and having done so gets him to work with these issues to produce extraordinary results.

Why is coaching so successful

Change and Transformation

Coaching is successful because coaching works with the inner resources and potential of an individual (all internal factors), transformation and changes within an individual have immediate results in terms of external factors. Coaching unpacks the highest intentions of an individual and this brings about transformation and change in:

  • Purpose of individual translated into business efforts.
  • Motivation.
  • Improved behaviour.
  • Better decision making abilities.
  • Improved focus on daily activities.
  • Self awareness.


The coaching programme is customized for each individual/ company depending on their objectives. This, inter alia, include:

  • Better business results.
  • Getting people to think and work together company/ group wide and how to manage it.
  • Instilling more confidence, motivation, and professionalism in employees and ultimately the company.
  • Getting employees to take ownership of their jobs and their lives.
  • The development of action plans for further self-development.

    When to introduce Coaching

    When do companies typically introduce coaching programmes?

    A number of organisations, small to large in size, have begun to see the benefits and advantages of coaching programmes for their employees.

      Situations where coaching can add tremendous benefit include:

      1. To assist executives in company strategy and vision. 
      2. Broadening the group of top performers in the company.
      3. Getting key people who have been appointed in new roles up to speed as quickly and efficiently as possible.
      4. Assisting employees within companies to cope with any changes that take place within the company i.e. restructuring, retrenchments etc.
      5. Addressing low performance issues in business.
      6. Improved implementation of new skills learnt.

        The exciting part is that companies do not see coaching as a reactive program anymore – more and more companies are introducing coaching programmes as incentives for their top performers!

                  What our clients Say

                  "The format of the team session was great; we all had an opportunity to speak. The sessions were well planned, presented and discussed. To sustain the changes made during the team coaching sessions, we have a managers’ meeting once a week, to touch base; measure ourselves against our commitments towards each other and to ensure that the unity within the management team stays strong. It is a time to speak, share ideas and raise issues and address concerns. René was awesome and easy to talk to. She provided honest feedback, her valuable insight and shared experience were appreciated."
