Leaders seek to make a difference in the world. They drive innovation and growth and they energise other people to deliver results.
Being a leader in practice can be exciting and fulfilling, but it can also be daunting and stretching. I support people as they embrace this challenge, helping them thrive and maximise their leadership impact.
I work as a trusted partner with my clients as they think through the issues they face in their business activities and relationships. More fundamentally, I guide them in developing their own distinctive leadership approach, based on their personal values, passions and talents.
The unusual blend of commercial, leadership and coaching experience I bring enables me to contribute towards what they need to do in their roles, as well as who they aspire to be as leaders.
The roles I typically play for clients include:
- one-to-one personal coaching and mentoring
- leadership team coaching and facilitation
- delivery of leadership development programmes
- keynote conference speeches
Examples of my recent assignments include helping:
- the founder of a tech start-up to navigate rapid business growth
- a new CEO to clarify their strategic priorities and engage their leadership team
- a team of venture capitalists to build their leadership influencing skills
- a marketing director to develop a clearer sense of their leadership purpose and style
