One-to-one coaching packages for leaders, senior executives, directors, partners and rising talent in large and earlier stage commercial organisations.

My clients are already successful, highly capable, hungry to develop themselves further, and dealing with a range of opportunities, new responsibilities and challenges around leadership, promotion, direction, organisational change and teamwork.

They may be struggling with some of the ‘ambiguity’ around leadership – what feels like ‘losing control’ of the detail – becoming more strategic, developing vision and prioritising time and resources, and moving on from being a well-respected subject matter expert to be a leader with presence and authenticity.

Stepping beyond your ‘comfort zone’ can be tricky even for the smartest people – coaching supports executives as they build confidence and develop skills and understanding to achieve their goals. It provides a confidential thinking and talking partnership in which to step back, reflect, develop greater awareness of strengths and areas for development, potential options for change and commitment to action. This is what coaching is all about and, for me, it is the most effective way to work as an agent of change to support leaders and their organisations to achieve their goals.

What we work on together can typically involve various elements of clarity of strategy, improving influencing and communication skills, stakeholder management, prioritising and delegation, greater levels of self-awareness, confidence, resilience, balance and commitment.

Some shifts can happen quickly, and it also takes time to embed and broaden the change in a way that is both comfortable and sustainable for the individual and also works for the ‘systems’ they are a part of (managers, colleagues, clients, staff, family).

Some examples:

Over 6 months: Director in a large Financial Services firm. Outcome: a higher profile, more effective working relationship with CEO and peers, clearer decision-making and better team motivation
Over 6 months: New Head of Marketing in a multinational firm. Outcome: greater confidence as a leader, more impact with key stakeholders, effective workload management and strategic planning, and managing team resources to full potential.
Over 4 months: Commercial Director, CEO-elect, of a publishing business. Outcome: realistic addressing of the challenges and opportunities of leadership, greater clarity of vision and values, confidence and better communication skills, a wider business perspective and more effective workload management
Over 8 months: Senior manager at a global corporation. Outcome: much greater confidence and awareness around management and leadership, focus and effectiveness in communication, and influencing with impact at the very top levels of the organisation.
