I guess you are here because you are curious. If you are considering working with a coach then you probably have some kind of personal challenge ahead of you.   

Much of our corporate language focuses on finding tips, techniques, tools and quick fixes as we search for the golden nugget that will solve all of our problems. (or as we search for missing link?) It’s as if we can master the world to such an extent that if X happens then we do Y, if A happens then we do B and so on. It’s as if we think that we can live our lives ‘painting by numbers’. Instead there is a much simpler path. We can learn to be masters in our own skin, confident in our abilities in whatever we face, and resilient in whatever storm.  

I am an Executive Leadership Coach. If you choose to work with me, I will show you how you can learn to navigate whatever the world throws at you, in your time, on your terms.  

Successful leaders have the same setbacks as everyone else. It’s how they react to these that sets them apart. They have an inner strength that everyone can sense when they walk into a room.  

I can help you to build resilience for adversity, show you how to unhook yourself from unhelpful patterns and create strategies to achieve your most valued goals.
 

 
 

How do you navigate what the world throws at you?  

One of the biggest challenges facing every leader, at every level, is the way in which our world is becoming increasingly volatile, uncertain and complex.

We’re tasked with adapting quickly to relentless change whilst at the same time remaining steady, confident and decisive.

It’s a ‘leadership paradox’ that requires us to find new ways of working.  

Instead of running around ever faster trying to keep up and catch everything, akin pretty much to the wall of death at the Fairgrounds of old, we need to take a different path.  

With my 25 years experience in HR and one of the few of Master Somatic coaches in the UK, I use leadership techniques you won’t find on the business (or personal development) shelf of any bookshop.

The key difference? We get you out of your own head!

Believe it or not, your head doesn’t hold all the answers. Nor do the most ingenious solutions come from just talking or thinking.  We lead by doing and that doing happens with much more than just your rational self.   

We learn to stand back, to observe, to slow down in order to go faster, (or rather to be more effective).  We make full use of all the wisdom that you have - so the emotional, the psychobiological, as well as the cognitive, rational, logical.  We use all of this to create strategies the are unique to you, helping you develop strong, lasting resilient confidence no matter what life throws at you.  

This is different to anything else that you have ever tried.  You’ll be on your feet a lot more than is usual for coaching, you'll be asked to explore, to get curious, to try out new things, to look for powerful sensations, emotions, as well as your thoughts, to re-discover your stories, to really start to shine a light on what you do and how you do it.   Your forward destination will be one of choice, you will learn much more about how you are so that instead of being on auto-pilot you will instead be able to actively create new choices for yourself.   You will be in charge of your story,  your destiny, instead of ‘it’ being in charge of you.

 
 

Whether we put together an executive leadership coaching proposal for your employer or we work together privately, your coaching programme will run for a minimum of six 1-2-1 sessions.   The majority of my clients are based in London, and a few locally in Kent.
