I've spent a large part of my life refining my skills as a coach; in my personal life as as American Football Coach for the Great Britain Men's National team and Scotland u19 team, and professionally as both an ICF Associate Certified Coach (ACC) and as a Team Coach. I maintain a focus on both my practice and continuing study in these disciplines.
I like to work both directly with clients at all stages of their leadership journey and with businesses who are looking to nurture and develop their talent. The range of themes that emerge through coaching is vast; from broad topics like engagement, wellbeing and all aspects of leadership development, to very specific challenges that the client wants the time and space to explore through coaching.
But like many things, the relationship between coach and client is a personal one and to maximise effectiveness, the chemistry has to be right. To understand how coaching can help you, whether it's the right initiative to help overcome your challenges and whether I'm the right fit for you or your business, get in touch!
If you ever get the opportunity to work with Matt then I would grab it with both hands.
Matt and I have worked together closely over the past 18 months and its fair to say I wouldn't be where I am if it wasn't for his objective approach, deep insight into all aspects of leadership and rich understanding of many tools and approaches that make a truly measurable difference.
Our regular sessions weren't the 'cosy fireside chats' that can sometimes categorise these types of relationship, they were always structured, sometimes difficult, challenging and uncomfortable but always incisive, intelligent and purposeful.
