Leadership Coaching where you need it

Senior Leaders

Understanding how you impact others and how they impact on you, is an effective way to see your challenges objectively.

1-to-1 coaching opens space to think and reach clear conclusions you may have been unable to find without the challenge of a coach. 

Leadership Teams

Teams rarely occur naturally; they need to be built.

To build an effective team needs leadership and the right conditions. Teams need to uncover their shared purpose and understand how each member contributes to that purpose. 

Leaders in Waiting

Leadership is an essential skill, but for many managers the role of the leader can feel daunting.

Leadership coaching can give leaders in waiting the confidence to fill their positions; helping them grow from technical expert to inspiring strategist.

Glyn Potts

Head Teacher

“In education, we spend a great deal of time on national qualifications leading better understanding of educational tasks, but very little time on how to lead organisations in achieving it. Neil has helped me greatly in ensuring that the direction I have set is authentic, motivating and clear. This has enabled me to weather countless adversity in the first two years of headship and generated a community unified on our goal. Quite simply, he brings out the best in me which means my staff and children get even better.”
