"As a coaching group you are completely different to any coaches we have worked with before – whatever you do, it works, you have a significant impact."
Group Head, City Law Firm
When you work with The Alliance, you work collaboratively with a high-performing team of experienced business coaches. We are committed to delivering bespoke, client-focused and values-oriented work that makes a positive impact. By offering active support, challenge and guidance, we enable people to tackle the business issues they face and to achieve sustainable change, and often far-reaching transformations. Using a coaching-based approach, we facilitate both personal growth and organisational development. As a result, our clients are able to access new ideas and solutions, unleash talent and generate progress on entrenched and even previously unspoken issues.

The Alliance celebrates its 10th birthday
This November we are marking the milestone of ten years as a successful coaching business. It feels like a significant moment, a testament to the foresight, commitment and professionalism of The Alliance’s founding members, most of whom are still very much part of the business. At our 100th meeting (a milestone in itself!), we reflected on some of the things we wanted to celebrate about The Alliance: see here for our Top Ten!
Juan Coto to give Meyler Campbell Annual Lecture
We are proud to share the news that on 26th November our very own Juan Coto will be delivering the annual Meyler Campbell lecture on ‘The Corporate Athlete: Coaching to build resilience and maximise peak performance’. A former international tennis player himself, Juan will explain the key principles of human performance in the toughest, high-pressure environments and share a set of mental performance tools used by world-class athletes which can be applied equally effectively in business. It would be great to see you there.
Our Coaching at Work article
Last year our Charity of the Year was Oxfam and to raise money for them, The Alliance took part in the gruelling Trailtrekker challenge. As well as raising £10,000 for this deserving charity, we gained some valuable insights into team performance, which we’ve distilled in this recent article, published in the September 2014 issue of Coaching at Work. You can read our piece here.

“The greatest gift we can offer each other is the framework in which to think for ourselves.”

Charity of the Year
As part of our ethos of wanting to give back and to make a broader contribution to the community, since 2011, we have chosen a charity to support every year, through a combination of fundraising, donations and direct support such as the volunteering of our time. Our chosen charity for this year is Barnardo’s – if you would like to make a donation, you can do so here.
