Successful collaboration starts with the individual. Your organisation needs people who can be open, flexible and adapt to changes skilfully. Leaders, managers and key professionals need to do this as well as develop these capabilities in others. This requires finely tuned self-awareness and relationship management skills, which a good executive coach and leadership coach can develop.
I provide leadership coaching for executives and professionals, helping them make sense of feedback, develop self-awareness and navigate complex challenges in uncertain and changing contexts.

Please contact us for information on coach training.

I'm an Accredited Master Executive Coach with the Assocaition for Coaching and is co-author of the chapter Action Learning Supervision in Supervision in Coaching edited by Jonathan Passmore, Association for Coaching/Kogan Page, 2011. Please contact me to discuss your supervision needs.
