coaching solutions

  • 1-to-1 executive coaching
    Currently the most recognised coaching intervention, 1-to-1 coaching provides a uniquely private and safe place to explore issues, challenges and aspirations.
  • group executive coaching
    This involves coaching in small groups of executives who are at similar levels, and are facing related challenges and issues. It generally involves an intensive first day, followed by two to four shorter follow-up sessions that help keep the trust, commitment, behavioural change and actions on track.
