Lead, inspire and create impact

Executive coaching business womenDo you want to have a greater impact at work? Do you need to find new ways to lead and inspire your team, or deal with change? Are you tired of fire-fighting and want to focus on more important strategic challenges?

Being a leader is difficult. It can be lonely, and creating the space to consider new ideas, solutions and ways of working is challenging. After all, you're the leader; shouldn't you have all the answers?

Executive coaching creates thinking space for you to consider your current challenges, and find the right way forward. Such challenges can be as diverse as:

  • Transition into new leadership roles
  • Personal impact and effectiveness
  • Managing your time and energy
  • Delegation and empowering your team
  • Managing organisational change

I have experience providing executive coaching to senior managers and executives, business owners and entrepreneurs and helping them to be more successful in their roles.

During executive coaching I can help you to challenge your present thinking, identify ‘blind spots’ which you may not have considered, gain a different perspective and find new solutions so you can be a more effective leader within your organisation.

Executive coaching is a completely bespoke programme designed around your needs. At the start we discuss the challenges you need to deliver against, evaluate the areas where coaching support would be most helpful and devise a programme to help you achieve your goals.

  • Michelle, Manager, Executive Education

    I started a new role as a manager and I had the one driving thought that “I wanted to be a good manager” however I didn’t understand how I could measure this. I met Scott a month into my new role and it became evident that I needed to set objectives and start to understand how to self-reflect. As Scott and I worked on my objectives I received a deeper understanding of my behaviour and found the real drivers behind my idea of a “good manager”. Dealing with these has helped me enormously and it’s really been a journey of understanding, helping me through some challenging line management times. I have learnt to be patient and fully understand a situation before making decisions. I cannot recommend Scott highly enough.

  • Nidi, Manager, Local Authority

    I started coaching sessions with Scott when I was facing challenges at work and wanted to work through how best to tackle these and develop my role at work. Scott is a great listener and very patiently helped me work through different options and showed me techniques to help understand what I needed to do to take control of my role. The tips and techniques we worked through have been invaluable to me. In particular the exercise we worked through to help me understand what I am good at and what I actually enjoy doing was very illuminating and with Scott’s help I have a real understanding of where I could develop my role. By the end of our sessions, I have much more self awareness and an understanding of what I need in my work and how I can best develop my role using my skills and abilities. I feel much more confident and am enjoying the work that I do with a strategy to develop this and my skills further. I have no hesitation in recommending Scott and his excellent coaching skills to anyone else.

  • Hannah, Director, Charity and Social Enterprise

    Working with Scott has been really valuable for me. I was at a point of transition in my career when we met - leaving a business I had set-up in order to start new work and pursue different opportunities. Scott helped me reflect on my strengths and what I had learnt through running the initial business, and also what would motivate and energise me as I developed a new business. These reflections have been really useful and I’ve used them to shape my direction and the work I am undertaking now.

  • Matt, Director, Property Management

    I worked with Scott over a period of around 6 months and found our sessions useful, interesting, and enjoyable.  I work as an Area Director in property management overseeing a number of staff and projects, as well as being directly answerable to numerous clients.  Our discussions allowed me to carefully review and re-evaluate my existing approach to issues within my career, as well as head towards forthcoming challenges in a clear minded and prepared way.  Scott is personable, perceptive, and allows discussions to take place that lead one to work towards solutions, always ensuring that the coachee leads the thinking and ‘owns’ the conclusions reached and plans agreed.  I would be happy to recommend Scott’s services.
