Executive coaching

Disruption can exact a heavy toll on the strategy and practice of a company. The burden on executives and senior managers is also immense – to solve problems, overhaul systems, guide teams, reassure people, maintain performance, and keep strong.

Executive coaching can foster the leadership a company needs to master disruption. This is because the work is designed to achieve two kinds of goal – business or organisational; and developmental.

My aim is to create a space where a person or small team can develop new capability and steer the company through change. A programme moves at pace, to bring results that are seen in individual behaviour and organisational outcomes.

(Coaching for me is never a fireside chat, where I ask your colleague what he fancies talking about today. Nor is it a training programme where I hammer someone with theories and PowerPoint.)



My clients face complex strategic, operational, and people-related obstacles and must achieve results against the odds. Each is open to a robust, imaginative conversation.


We work toward both development and organisational goals. Our aim is to build capability for a clear business purpose; this aids clarity and commitment.


The process is bespoke. We typically meet every three weeks, to examine events and situations that are relevant to our purpose. All exchanges are in confidence.


With our dual goals in mind, we look at personal and corporate barriers to change, to discover fresh leadership thinking and steps toward strong outcomes.
