Executive and management coaching

Executive or management coaching is a powerful means of improving the performance of both individuals and organisations. The process increases engagement, morale and confidence, which improve performance and therefore profitabilty. It sometimes forms part of a Talent Management programme and is offered to high potential individuals. However, coaching can also be extremely beneficial to middle managers, who have a significant ability to affect the performance, engagement and morale of their teams. The areas where this kind of coaching is most effective are:


Leadership development

Covering all aspects of successful leadership behaviour, including specific development for women leaders.


Communication skills

To develop clear effective communication with others, both verbal and written, for example, helping a technical expert develop better interpersonal skills with team members and clients.


Personal perception

Helping indiviuals gain an understanding of their personal impact, through self awareness, 360°/180° feedback, including factors such as manner, facial expression, appearance, posture and tone of voice.


Targeted behavioural aspects

To change specific unhelpful behaviours, attitudes or habits.



Performance improvement

Helping individuals perform their roles more effectively by considering the competencies required for a specific role and addressing any gaps, for example improving team management, delegation, organisational skills, time management and presentation skills.
