Perhaps you’re a senior manager about to step up to the board. Or you’re a director looking for strategies to better manage yourself and your teams. Or maybe you’re a high potential individual looking to fast-track your career.

Whatever challenge you’re facing, our executive coaching will help you overcome your weaknesses and build on your strengths.

But do you even need a coach?

Coaching is an investment in talent. All elite athletes use coaches to reach their full potential. And you’re no different. So coaching is not a nice-to-have; it’s essential when striving to become a better version of you.

With pragmatic and insightful coaching, we unlock untapped potential and help you and your firm reach new heights.

Coaching from people who know financial services

You get personalised attention – You won’t go through a standard coaching program. In fact, there is no standard coaching program. While we follow a proven framework, we tailor our coaching to your needs, helping you achieve your specific goals.

Get realistic action plans
– It’s easy to get inspired to change on one day, and then fall back into usual habits the next. We make sure you leave us with clearly defined goals and a clear roadmap to achieve them. So you turn words into action.

Discreet and confidential
– Develop ideas and strategies in an objective and neutral environment. We provide the safe place to discuss and plan your next play before you reveal your hand to the world.

We challenge your thinking
– A good coach challenges your assumptions and behaviours, holding up a mirror for you to appraise yourself honestly. We help you see your blind spots so you can improve any personal weaknesses.

Designed for busy individuals
– We’ve worked with senior executives from major UK financial companies, so we know just how “crazy busy” you are. We allow you to set the agenda and we treat your time like the incredibly valuable resource it is.

Develop the skills that help you and your firm prosper

Learning who you are requires hard work. Knowing other people is even more difficult. But successful executives know heightened self-awareness and empathy (so called ‘soft skills’) make you a more powerful and effective individual.

Develop self-awareness
– If you’re unaware or in denial about your personal motives, you’ll be a less effective leader of people. Our coaching helps you improve self-knowledge and reap the colossal benefits of doing so.

Develop greater empathy
– Studies show that the more power people have, the less able they are to understand others. Our coaching program helps you better improve your ability to think smartly and compassionately about others.

Executive coaching is not consultancy

While we are specialist trainers in the financial services industry, this service is not about telling you what to do, or to support your leadership with an extra pair of hands.

The goal of coaching is to help you think through and overcome your own challenges. We help you discover the answers, simply by asking the right questions.

Good coaching can be transformative and one of the best investments you can make.
