Experience in one to one coaching
Brian is a pragmatic Executive Coach who understands what is involved in leading teams and brings expertise, passion and integrity to his work. His coaching style is supportive, direct and results focused.
His extensive knowledge and practical business background gives him a deep understanding of the often conflicting needs and priorities of different stakeholder groups.
Brian has extensive experience working with executives and senior leaders across a wide range of sectors and has coached them to leverage their strengths and achieve their goals in ways that support the strategy, objectives and overall success of their organisation. He brings to his business coaching a wealth of business and life experiences together with the practical application of world class coaching methodologies.
Brian collaborates with clients to facilitate problem solving on major issues, helping clients deal with difficult relationships, building self-awareness, confidence and self-esteem. He knows that those in leadership roles can be in a ‘lonely place’ and that the personal support of an experienced executive coach can be invaluable to personal and professional development and dealing with point in time challenges.
“Brian has a real understanding of the multitude of challenges that confront leaders and asks purposeful questions that put the spotlight on the critical issues. He challenged and encouraged me to push beyond self-imposed barriers and take my leadership capacities to the next level. Brian immediately engenders trust and I felt very comfortable sharing issues that I would previously not have been open to discussing. Brian was an unbiased and objective resource and I would highly recommend him to others.”
