The 9 Situations

Coaching Alchemy

There is an increased focus and interest in the number of organisations who now regard coaching and mentoring as an intrinsic part of their high performance tool kit. Success lies in resourcing qualified, successful and experienced coaches

The 9 Situations coaches are a selective elite. Our pool of coaching associates comprises individuals with a respected executive coaching qualification, who have a very senior leadership background and who have been coaching at the highest organisational levels for years

We practice what we preach. All coaching and mentoring associates of The 9 Situations are qualified, experienced and supervised. The team is led by Jan Floyd-Douglass, FInstLM, a qualified Level 7 Executive Coach and Leadership Mentor, from the Institute of Leadership and Management, Europe’s leading awarding body. Jan has trained, coached, mentored and supervised business and leadership coaches working in the public, private and third sectors for over 20 years. She is a recognised coach under the Government’s Growth Accelerator programme

The 9 Situations can help build your quality internal coaching practice too through our Coaching Alchemy programmes. These will provide:

  1. access to fully accredited coaching and mentoring training qualifications from the Institute of Leadership and Management
  2. training and coaching support for all line management levels with coaching responsibility. The training can be delivered as a half day workshop, and the coaching support tailored to suit individual and organisational needs
