Leadership and Executive Coaching

Executive coaching is a highly personalised form of learning. It helps executives individually to learn, and to make the most of their learning to bring about effective action, improved performance and personal growth – as well as better business results for the organisation.
We can find no better way to describe what executive coaching offers than in the words of Trevor Waldrock:
“Executive coaching is a conversation that develops leaders, in a safe place, where you can lift up your head, redefine the future and achieve it in a way that adds value to you and the organisation.”
As a process it provides executives with valid information that enables them to make well-informed choices and decisions.
We coach executives who want to get results, and we only take on clients who really want to make a difference. We expect our clients to give of their very best, and we give our very best in return.
We agree an action plan with the client, with measurable, attainable goals, and actions planned to achieve those goals. Our coaches help clients turn newly-learned skills into sustainable habits of behaviour.
Executive coaching provides a confidential sounding board for senior managers who want to address sensitive issues such as their own leadership and management style, or who can benefit from support in facing key issues on their business agenda.
One of the most significant investments an organisation can make is in the ongoing development of their leaders. The more experienced leader may need to be re-energised. The budding leader will have new skills and behaviours to learn and still other leaders may need support with difficult transitions be it of an organisational or of a personal nature.
