Our programmes


We believe that performance is enhanced through a 3-way agreement between the organisation, the trainee and the coach during a performance conversation. Setting goals, giving and receiving feedback, building a good coaching relationship, and having effective coaching conversations are the cornerstones of coaching performance. These techniques are underpinned by our belief in potential and the use of “deliberate practice”. This takes place with the understanding of the organisational context.

Key detail

Our expert consultants provide one to one coaching for business leaders to help them achieve their objectives. They also develop individuals with both core and advanced coaching skills so they become effective leadership coaches within their organisation, training others to higher performance. We offer 3 broad options:


Coaching courses: Our courses are split into 2 streams:

Skills Workshops
These are typically 1-3 day workshops, covering Core Coaching Skills or Advanced Coaching Skills. Workshops can also focus on a specific aspect of coaching or coaching in an explicit context.

Our accreditation programme, ‘Coaching Performance Excellence’, runs over a 9-month period and is tailored to an organisation’s identity. We also run an open programme. It combines workshop learning with one-to-one coaching, supervision, action learning sets and the development of a personal portfolio. Our programme is externally accredited by Middlesex University and is ILM and EMCC recognised and endorsed.


1-to-1 Executive Coaching: We work on a 1-to-1 basis with a range of leaders, from middle management to CEO's. Delivered either face-to-face, over the phone or via Skype, our coaches work around your leaders’ busy schedules to ensure they get the most out of the sessions.

Coaching Supervision: With this option, a coach can improve the quality of their practice through the help of a supervisor. Supervision from one of our expert consultants helps to maintain perspective during daily coaching activities and not get lost in, for example, personal judgements, organisational politics or the views of others.


Our approach to performance coaching

Performance coaching is more than just a cosy conversation. We believe that setting goals and providing feedback are absolutely critical to getting results. Coaching is a mindset, not merely an activity. This mindset is underpinned by a belief in potential that is essential to driving performance and impacting business results.

We maintain unconditional positive regard for our client, which means that the coach is at all times supportive and non-judgemental of the client, their views, lifestyle and aspirations.
