Designated Associates

Release potential, transform performance and move from Good to Great Coaching and Mentoring providers Designated Associates are members of and work within the guidelines of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC). Managing Director Elaine Owen co‐ordinates the EMCC cluster for Merseyside and North Cheshire and has achieved many awards for learning and development including the honour of UK Business Mentor of the Year for her exceptional mentoring to entrepreneurs and executives.

As the economy challenges us to achieve more with less, the effectiveness and cost savings of Coach Mentoring is now the solution of choice for learning and development, enhanced performance and talent management and change management. Ensuring that you select a reputable, qualified and experienced coach mentoring partner to support you through the process is absolutely paramount to success.
Our Experienced and qualified coach mentors facilitate and create transitional space so that the ‘un‐discussable’ becomes discussable and with support, heightened self awareness and knowledge transfer, change is not just enabled, it is empowered!

Clients report that successful leadership coach mentors effect transformational change in a supported and almost fast tracked approach that would not have been achievable by self, so quickly whilst ‘doing the day job’.

Coaching and mentoring are different but there are shared skill sets and areas of cross over. Using the appropriate coaching, mentoring or learning and development intervention our Coach Mentor professionals enable the release of potential and move clients from good to great!

Our team are all qualified and highly experienced professional coach mentors. We work throughout Europe and we welcome enquiries from individuals through to corporate blue chip clients. We are providers of funded mentoring programmes such as NWDA business mentoring and therefore also have over 200 volunteer mentors who regularly undertake services and continuous professional development with us.
