View our coaches and request a pro bono coaching session

(Use client code Senior Leader Coaching when signing up)

We recognise that many senior leaders are dealing with complex challenges and tough decisions at this time - and we know from experience that having access to a supportive, external coach can be invaluable when trying to make progress. 


Our experienced executive coaches are offering a two hour coaching conversation on a pro bono basis with senior leaders. This offer is open to clients as well as leaders and companies who have not worked with us before. 


Whilst we'll be delighted if providing this strengthens our existing relationships or is the start of anew relationship, our offer of coaching for senior leaders is simply there for support - no catches - no obligations - no sales pitch at the end - it's just a way we hope we can help leaders at a difficult time.  


If you think we can help, speak to one of the coaches and find out more?
