Leadership Coaching & Development

How do I engage my team and boost commitment? How do I make use of my empathic side in my leadership? How do I build trust and cooperate with my peers? How do I manage my boss? Corporate politics, what is really going on? I want to grow and progress my career, how and what are the consequences? How do I restructure my team? And anything else around performance and leadership.

With a typical duration of 3 to 9 months, customised for your and your organisation’s needs and challenges

Leadership & Personality Assessments

Such as Hogan Leadership Forecast and Psychological Safety Excellence for Empathic Leadership, which provide leaders and candidates for leadership positions profound insights in leadership personality, style and behaviour

Either as a stand-alone solution, or as a starting point for leadership coaching & development

PRINCIPLES

Our sole goal is that you use your powers for your purpose, that you can use your potential to develop in to what you want to become, and to realise your potential in a meaningful way – which is your performance and the legacy you will leave.

01.
CLIENT-COACH RELATIONSHIP IS KEY

The relationship between the client and the coach must be one in which there is mutual respect, trust, and mutual freedom of expression.

02.
TECHNIQUES DON’T WORK

We will not use routines or mechanical ways to support you as it would mean that we are not engaged with your personal circumstances, your potential and your limitations. We will work what is best for you personally.

03.
PROVIDING A FOUNDATION FOR GROWTH & PERFORMANCE

Change and improvement needs a foundation, whether it is for personal growth or job performance. We will work on your cognitive hierarchy, from values & beliefs to attitudes & perceptions, leading to sustainable professional and leadership behavioural change.
