Independent Executive Coach

After almost 20 years working with leaders and senior teams across a wide variety of industries and sectors in the UK, Europe and the Middle East, I continue to be fascinated by the power of conversation and how the application of robust, non-judgmental challenge can help an individual to pivot their thinking and uncover new strategies.

My theatre training helps me to quickly assimilate complex situations, identify the key challenges and use a broad range of tools and techniques to explore the landscape.  My work with individuals and teams has given me a good understanding of a wide range of business contexts in all sectors and across all levels.

I regularly help executives and senior leaders to unleash their inner genius when confronting challenges and meeting opportunities – for the benefit of both themselves and their organisations.

 

Style and Approach

I use a pure coaching style and draw from a wide range of methodologies including guided questioning, diagnostic techniques (MBTI, SDI, Insights) clean input, following interest and appropriate challenge/proposal.  I ensure that clients are free to explore topics in a non-judgemental, confidential and client-focussed setting.

  •  “(Jonathan is) quickly able to build rapport … relaxed but business-focused … (He) is one of a select few who I wholeheartedly recommend.” ~ Nigel (Automotive)
  • “Jon has very ably coached groups of managers and leaders at all levels. Jon is a pleasure to work with … I have no hesitation in recommending him.” ~ Debbie (Financial Services)
