Developing Leaders/Executive Coaching

Taking your performance to the next level

Would you like to take your own performance, or that of your team or organization, to the next level? Do you want to be at your best more of the time? As a Partner in The Alliance coaching business, I work with individuals and teams to set free their thinking, raise their self-awareness and boost their effectiveness. I tailor my work to suit each client’s needs, using a combination of tools, techniques and frameworks from coaching and positive psychology.

A bedrock of all my engagements is to use both support and challenge, with a sprinkling of business knowledge and humour as appropriate. I emphasise the recognition and application of strengths, and work with clients in a variety of different ways to enable them to achieve their goals and to develop and flourish. Particular areas of interest and expertise include helping clients:

  • To clarify, articulate and communicate their message/strategy
  • To build confidence, presence and impact
  • To harness the power of change – using it as a means to flourish and thrive, not just survive

I have a natural affinity for the creative industries in the broadest sense (publishing, media, advertising, fashion, food, travel) but I also work with clients in a range of completely different areas (finance, professional services, third sector, health care), who say they find my different perspective refreshing, valuable and broadening. My approach is client-focused, flexible and responsive so it’s more about the client attitude and our ‘fit’ rather than the boundaries of the sector. My clients are forward-looking individuals and teams who genuinely want to make changes and are prepared to commit to their growth and development. They are curious, open and prepared to take responsibility and put in the work to achieve the results they want.

I trained as a coach on the Meyler Campbell Business Coach Programme, accredited by the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC), the World Association of Business Coaches (WABC) and the Association for Coaching. I am an affiliate member of the Institute of Coaching Professional Association of Coaching (ICPA), at McLean Hospital, a Harvard Medical School affiliate and am fully certified in Myers Briggs MBTI® and CAPP Realise2.

Typical assignments include:

  • Working alongside individual leaders on a one-to-one basis, enabling them to achieve their best results and to be the leader they want to be
  • Supporting executives and professionals through a key transition such as a promotion or change of role
  • Boosting the effectiveness of senior management teams and boards as a group through offering a tailored combination of leadership and coaching techniques
  • Providing Coaching Days, which offer a wider group of people within an organisation the opportunity to experience the benefits of one-to-one coaching in a single day
  • Collaborating with companies to design and deliver a wider programme of support to meet their unique needs, either at a specific point in time or on an ongoing basis, through coaching, feedback, and training
