What is our executive coaching style?

  • What is your equivalent of winning an Olympic gold medal?
  • If you believed anything was possible, what would you want to achieve?

These are the questions we will ask you at the outset of our executive coaching relationship. Our executive coaching style is not business as usual - we work with a small portfolio of senior business leaders who are committed to achieving courageous goals for themselves, their teams and their organisations. Courageous goals such as:-

  • Business turnaround
  • Strategic and cultural change
  • Driving for growth and innovation
  • Transforming leadership styles
  • Creating inspiring visions
  • Personal career change

Coaching is Bigger than Coaching

We believe that coaching is bigger than coaching; that it is part of a trend to re-invent the skills, behaviours and attitudes of business leaders to meet the diverse challenges of the 21st century environment.

Our style of executive coaching recognises that business leaders need both support and challenge to recognise these emerging trends and to respond to them effectively.

Our coaching mind-set is captured in the following video which reminds us of the incredible potential of the human spirit when aligned with an inspiring vision.

Executive Coaching Credentials

Our credentials are that we are recognised thought leaders in the coaching world. We combine this with pragmatic experience from two high performance worlds.

First, we have been senior business leaders in FTSE100 organisations. Second, we have worked for many years with Olympic medallists and their coaches to apply sports coaching mind-sets into the business sector.
