I coach senior and up-and-coming executives and business owners. They have one common characteristic: they’re serious about growing themselves as leaders.
My clients’ typical problems
They face multiple challenges, like:
- Leading change and shifting people’s mindsets
- Motivating staff to raise their performance
- Steering a group of opinionated direct reports
- Asserting themselves with powerful peers
- Having to handle stakeholders with multiple perspectives
The pressure doesn’t let up.
The trouble is, leadership roles expose our greatest fears about ourselves. We all have them. You might feel you lack leadership presence. Or carry a fear of failure. Or a nagging dread of conflict. For some these doubts show as anxiety. For others, as non-assertiveness or staleness.
How do you leave these feelings behind and perform under pressure while enjoying what you’re doing? Most people can’t and end up feeling stuck. That can affect your leadership … and your company or team. You may see worsening employee engagement, causing productivity and innovation to fall. Strategy execution and financial results may slide and talented people could start leaving. Then you’ll feel even more pressure.
Working with the ideas and tools from The Three Levels of Leadership, clients achieve measurable shifts in their presence, flexibility, resilience and behavioural skill even under pressure.
I start with your inner beliefs and then – and only then – focus on helping you change your behavioural habits. Yes, you’ll have to put effort in, but it works.

You’ll see typical examples of clients’ results in these before-and-after-coaching graphs. As you can see, they removed their key weaknesses (negative scores) and boosted their strengths (positive scores). Huge gains like these benefit you and your company.
