Corporate leadership coaching provides a highly personalised and tailored solution for talent management and helps all levels of business with succession planning. As a coach, I take every individual’s current position as a starting point and draw on my extensive practical experience backed up by theory to develop your talent’s ability to excel, for both immediate issues and in future.

You might also find it useful to read my discovery call guidelines, which are designed to give you an idea of what to expect on our first call, and some tips for preparing.

I thought that Shirley would help me identify different ways of working and give me new skills for the role of chair. She did much more than that! Not only did she help me in those areas, she also helped me explore my motivations and purpose. This enabled me to understand my reactions to situations at a deeper level and provided me with a variety of tools to deploy depending on the personalities and situation. I have found the experience hugely beneficial both in the role of chair and in the wider context of my business life.
