If I had to choose one thing that makes a difference to clients seeking change, it’s open-mindedness. From here we can create freedom, choice and possibility.
It’s a wonderful thing to witness because nothing beats a change of heart.
With everything to play for, the mountains begin to move, all in the safety of an independent relationship. And the outcome?
Progress in all its glory.
One to one coaching is a highly relational process and the themes explored can be expansive. It’s the territory of all things career, personal brand, boardrooms and leading teams. The leadership list is a long one, simply choose your topics and we’ll begin.
It’s also about breaking new ground and creating opportunity. Great coaching, irrespective of style and credentials is developmental. Always, because no one needs fixing. Coaching is simply the key that seeks to balance our inner and outer worlds and a willingness to learn about ourselves and others.
Industry experience includes, professional services, financial services, media, utilities, construction, retail, education and health.
It’s true when clients say the pull of work can be so strong it feels count intuitive to pause, and yet it’s often where the real work lies’

Teams and Groups
Guided by collective enquiry, my work with teams offers leaders an opportunity to learn more about themselves to resolve workplace challenges. It is a contemporary method that looks beyond the more traditional ideas we may have about success and other goal-oriented methods. It feels respectful and introspective allowing those taking part to immerse themselves a little more deeply whilst affording the leader to work in one of three roles: as facilitator, as contributor and as issue holder.
No one voice is more important than any other and so removes the need for a leader to have all the answers and/or do all the work.
By adopting a ‘love the problem’ mindset, leaders can harness the power of new perspectives and manage contributions from more challenging colleagues. In return this process improves team cohesion and strengthens decision making.
These methods are featured in two coaching handbooks published in 2021 and 2023 a Henley collaboration with more than 100 coaches worldwide.
