I'm a firm believer in the theory that people only do their best at things they truly enjoy. It is difficult to excel at something you don't enjoy.
In challenging and changing times, organisations require more from their people. More commitment. More innovation. More productivity. Building a culture and team that is productive, effective and happily taking care of customers is the ONLY way to sustain an edge in a highly competitive and demanding environment. The difference that makes the difference is leadership talent.
The true measure of leadership effectiveness is being able to consistently deliver results through other people in a spirit of collaboration.
However, from the moment you take your first step from being a technical specialist to managing a team, you begin to truly appreciate the many challenges of leading people.
No academic programme can ever fully equip you for this.

Our way of working has been proven to deliver real and lasting results far more quickly than would otherwise occur.
True leadership transformation means attending to two things:

In our coaching work, we draw upon our extensive, unique and evolving toolkit to help you pay proper attention to your “doing” AND your “being.” That way you make real and sustainable progress.
You enjoy unlimited access to the service and our customised approach addresses your specific situation and produces the desired results.
As you work with us, you are supported and challenged to become the best possible version of yourself. And you take away tools that enable you to maintain success...for life.
No leader can afford to lose touch with reality for too long.
Self-awareness and understanding the perceptions of others are essential ingredients of leadership effectiveness. To add any value, feedback must be gathered and delivered in a way that ensures it is heard, understood, accepted and acted upon. Too often, at least one of these elements is missing and no change occurs.
We are skilled in helping people to :
In addition to one to one coaching, we offer a unique and exclusive mastermind group of 8 to 10 leaders. Participants are drawn from different industries and professions, but share a common intent to increase personal effectiveness and impact as a leader.
Once formed, a group embarks on a 12 month programme which includes:
