Matthew’s Approach to Coaching

Matthew’s approach begins with a fundamental belief that we have so much more in us than is so often realised. His coaching is designed to have his clients generously reappraise their abilities and learn super smart ways of accessing their potential.

Clients have an opportunity to reshape themselves in ways that are more imaginative, effective and inspiring. This approach is designed to enable clients to re – form who they are at depth. They are also supported to take a very high level of responsibility in generating who they are being in their lives and ensuring their behaviour is designed to work.

Our approach to coaching

He helps clients find their optimal ways of working, digging deep into their potential and pulling out the best available to meet their challenges. His method is to radically build self-understanding to overcome blocks and blind spots whilst building on strengths. Experience has shown him that with more self-awareness comes greater choice, flexibility and accuracy in responding to whatever is happening.

His focus is to embed and apply insights gathered and to establish greater understanding and alternative strategies when operating in areas of challenge.


Jo’s Approach to Coaching

“Deep within man dwell those slumbering powers: powers that would astonish him, that he never dreamed of possessing; forces that would revolutionise his life if aroused and put into action.”

Orison Swett Marden

Coaching is a way to develop your true potential through a process of uncovering and eliminating destructive behavioural and thinking patterns in a supportive, caring and inspirational manner and supporting the discovery and choice of positive, life-affirming, success inducing alternatives. This is achieved using specific tools and scientifically tested techniques that work. Coaching is a solution-focussed approach to personal development that can assist clients to make lasting change in all areas of their Life.

Coaching Creativity

Coaching encourages changes made by the coachee to become routine, sustainable habits over time. As a result of this, they naturally take better care of themselves as they strengthen their level of awareness, understanding and self-belief.

By setting clear objectives, clients will see more easily the progress they are making.

This naturally increases confidence, as achievements can be clearly measured and they will recognise their increasing ability to ‘coach’ themselves successfully in the future.

“Jo and the Stone Partnership worked for me at TalkTalk as part of our PSL of exec and team coaches. Jo was one of our most highly regarded spot coaches for her empathic and inclusive style. We were always asked when she was coming back into the business again by almost everyone she coached.

I personally enjoyed talking to Jo for her insights in our business, insightful approach and nuanced links to well being and behavioural change. She was an active member always willing to contribute at our quarterly PSL meetings and important way in which we drive engagement and knowledge for our coaches.

I would recommend Jo and the Stone partnership with no hesitation for any businesses looking to support their people to drive better performance and that are looking for true partners who are willing to build deep and long lasting relationships.”
