Management  Coaching

“Paul’s approach helped me free up my mind for change, and the power of the imagery we created together gave me a blueprint for reflection and action. I think the two key things for me were accessing the emotional strength I could bring to relationships and recognising the freedom that change brings. Whether you want to use this for work reasons or your own personal growth, Paul helps you to design the possibilities and then develop them through free-ranging discussion backed up by powerful off-line tasks, with the only boundaries being the ones you put in place yourself. He asks perceptive and very liberating questions and these encourage you to put aside all limiting self talk and just go for it!”                  Roger: Senior Career Manager for Public Sector, Dec 2007.

As a high-leverage intervention, the impact of an executive coach on a few key individuals can drive through massive changes in a corporate setting,.... senior managers need coaching as much as the youngest fledglings".
