Leadership coaching has one focus; to support you by creating time and space for new learning and awareness to develop.

For instance, some of the topics people typically find coaching beneficial for include; stress management, time management, managing remotely, career progression, dealing with and managing change, building confidence, navigating stakeholder relationships and gaining a better sense of balance.

Furthermore, if you’re new to leadership coaching why not listen to our 30 minute podcast on The Value of Workplace Coaching.

“Rachael has an impressive ability of being able to analyse your output in an effective method. She has transformed the way I work. With an in depth study of my working practices and I’ve been able to double the amount of work I get through. It’s improved the quality of my home life and work-life balance.”

“John’s coaching made a crucial difference when I was at such a low ebb, everything felt so chaotic, but now the future looks more positive – I’m feeling so much better now.”

Our Coaching Essentials

1. Coaching is a form of Learning – firstly our approach is not to instruct or tell, rather we take a curious view about what you are seeing, feeling, sensing, behaving and thinking about. We facilitate your learning by building your self-awareness, helping you find more choices, helping you achieve your goals, finding different ways of working and thinking to realise your potential.

2. Coaching is a safe confidential space to discuss your goals and anything in your current situation that may be holding you back. Importantly, many leaders value coaching because it provides them with time out of their hectic day to think about the issues they are facing, their business plans and strategies in a different light helping them deal with the present and plan for the future.

3. Coaching leaves a legacy making people better leaders. Amazingly, according to Gallup 86% of employees think their bosses are uninspiring. Over 70% of individuals who receive coaching benefit from improved work performance, relationships and more effective communication skills. 86% of companies feel that they recouped their investment, with added value of the trickle down effect.

Above all – Coaching literally changes the way people learn and lead

Tailored coaching packages

At times we can all feel like we need time to focus on ourselves. This might be from feeling overwhelmed, that something needs to change or when pressure builds to perform at extraordinarily high levels for long periods. Therefore, we offer flexible coaching packages to meet your needs on either a fortnightly, monthly or quarterly basis.

Sessions are provided face-to-face or remotely, and can be arranged outside of normal work hours if required.

In conclusion we recommend a program of 4 to 8 sessions for senior leaders, and the Hogan Leadership Assessment to provide a source of impartial, data driven feedback.


Your Trusted Advisors.

Consequently we work with you as a trusted advisor, providing a confidential environment to organise your thoughts. For this reason, we do not judge, impose or assume we are the ‘expert’ in what is best for you. Instead we use the art and science of psychology in practical ways to support you to create your own success.
