    Episode 10 - Coaching in the Digital Age

    In this episode, Dave speaking with with the fantastic Rob Charlton, CEO of Space Group, promoting digital synergy for the construction industry. 

    Typically, construction industry is very slow at embracing new and emerging technologies. However we live in an ever more increasing digital world. The construction industry needs to adapt or die.



    BIM (Building Information Modelling) has been around for a while now and only saw a big uptake within the construction sector when mandated by the government and a requirement on all public projects. Rob tells Dave that,unless we still more of these government initiatives, the uptake of other technologies will continue to be slow and hamper productivity. But we shouldn't wait for government to step in, the industry should be leading the way. This includes COACHING.



    Dave and Rob were due to start a team coaching programme at the start of 2020 just as the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Rob seeing the value in coaching especially when met with the unknowns around the COVID-019 pandemic, the two of them championed taking the coaching online. After a short turbulent time of working out how Zoom works, taking coaching online seemed obvious.

    Construction in the digital age,
    How to embrace technology in the construction industry? and
    How coaching can help in the uptake of new and emerging technologies.

    Episode 6 - Coaching is Doing Less to get More Done



    In this episode Dave Stitt is joined by Andy Robbins as they talk about how coaching can be used as a tool to effectively inspire and empower people in your team so that you can delegate tasks to get more done by doing less.

    A lot of leaders get into leadership positions from gaining all of the experience. However, when you are leading people, the mission becomes more about what others can contribute rather than what experience you have. Coaching is the first best step that any leader can take to move the needle towards  what effective leaders need to be.

    Coaching allows leaders to take a step back from the issues at hand and look at the problems from another perspective. And when we can look at issues from an outsider's perspective, as opposed to being the one stuck insode the issue, we can start to navigate a new path to solving the problem.

    Key topics:


    Setting a vision and purpose,
    Articulating what the future looks like,
    Taking action towards the vision,
    Measuring progress towards the vision.

    Andy also shares how life is one long learning experience, and how develop your career.

    · How Coaching works in practices,

    · What’s the difference between coaching and mentoring,
