Partners & Executive Coaches



What’s the value of coaching?

Business is relationships, and sometimes it can be lonely at the top. In a demanding world where pressure for results is high and valuable input from reliable thought partners often sparse, leaders need space and time for active reflection. Having a sparring partner with whom you can sort through the noise, gain clarity, make decisions and effectively face the ongoing challenges of today’s business and organisational world provides a critical advantage in maintaining a successful trajectory.

Is it for you?

Leaders who are serious about driving sustainable change, innovation and growth – at an individual and/or group level – know that coaching is one of the most powerful development tools in which they can proactively invest to help themselves and others continue to be successful. And while some only approach an Executive Coach when they find themselves facing seemingly insurmountable challenges, when they are already in survival mode, choosing to engage in coaching is most effective in helping accomplished leaders continue to thrive.

Choosing to partner with a reputable Executive Coach can help you to better understand why certain things are happening – to identify behavioural patterns, to recognise what’s working and what’s not, and to determine which actions may be most effective in charting the best course for your future.

Why work with us?

We are an entrepreneurial coaching organization that works directly with business leaders seeking a trusted adviser and sparring partner. We offer a sounding board and executive coaching service that supports leaders in making the best choices for themselves, their teams and their organisations.

“Because the soft stuff is the hard stuff!”

They are accountable for leading sustainable change and fostering behavioural creativity and innovation that achieves key strategic outcomes and profitable growth. We help you to create a clear path forward and run through walls together!

In choosing to work with us, you will gain access to best-in-class coaching with experienced leaders, who have successfully partnered with accomplished professionals for over two decades in both corporate and entrepreneurial business environments around the world.

Coaching, Workshops, Research

Executive Coaching

We work with senior level executives to enhance self-awareness that drives greater leadership effectiveness. We do this by exploring your experiences within the context of your organisational role and relationships with others. Together we determine opportunities to discover your best self, and so increase your leadership impact.

These sessions are conducted one-to-one, in a safe environment where you can openly reflect on your own experiences and challenges.

Team Coaching

In modern organisations, teams are the fundamental unit of success, and the core reason why organisations succeed or fail. When a team is dysfunctional – or perhaps simply not optimising its potential – your leadership contribution to the business is diminished.

Experience teaches us that the way in which leaders and team members interact with each other determines the degree of performance effectiveness and contribution to the business. As coaches, we focus on optimising leadership and team dynamics – formal and informal – that influence team cohesion and communication between team members to maximise potential results for the business.

Workshops and executive knowledge sessions

We design and lead bespoke development workshops and executive knowledge sessions that facilitate the team and organisational learning critical to your business success.

We bring corporate, entrepreneurial and sports expertise that delivers high impact learning within the context of leadership, change, entrepreneurial mindset, innovation and creativity. Workshops can be delivered either in-house or at an external location best-suited to the specific needs of your team and/or organisation.
