"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."

We're not content with the status quo.
Our intent is to leave people and businesses better than they were before: higher performing; more resourceful and resilient; more fulfilled and fit for purpose. We partner with organisations, business leaders, teams and individuals who are open-minded and curious: for them, and us, the status quo is never an option. Our clients want to step up a gear and are ready for transformation. We invest the time to go deep and really understand our clients’ business needs and cultures; we encourage and inspire businesses to ask the questions and have the conversations that matter; we help our clients embed new practices; we facilitate connections and act as a bridge to fresh external perspectives. As a result, our clients clear their view and overcome the barriers to change, helping them create high performing organisations full of people who love their work and who know how to flourish, even under pressure.

Our latest blog post
Are all your meetings perfect? Are you happy with the number of meetings you attend? If so, you don’t need this post. If not, read our latest blog post, Fronting up back-to-back meetings, for a thought-provoking discussion on why are meetings are often not as effective as we’d like them to be. The article contains a practical list of tools and techniques to improve the quality of your meetings. And it also delves into a deeper question: ‘Why do successful senior people, well qualified, well paid, with a lot of responsibility, turn up to meetings that they know will be a partial waste of time?’. We’d love to hear your thoughts on this pressing issue too!
