Main Coaching Types

Build Performance By Unlocking Your Potential


Coaching Technology

Face to Face vs Distance Coaching

Although the majority of my coaching sessions are performed face to face, technology allows coaching sessions to take place remotely. 

Remote coaching can be useful if the individual travels extensively or is based some distance away.

I often use skype, video calling and telephone to undertake coaching sessions.

I will agree the best approach with you to get the greatest value, in the most cost-effective and time-effective way.

Individuals and Groups

Although my executive coaching in London services can be applied in many different ways, the three most popular methods are:

Executive Coaching in London and UK, executive CO Coaching

Executive CO Coaching

Some of my greatest achievements have been in the area or executive coaching.  More and more senior executives in business are finding that having a trusted third party that they can talk with can help enormously.

Having a trusted coach can be an invaluable resource. 

I help senior people find answers to difficult questions or address pressing issues by using innovative techniques and tools to revisit issues from different angles, at different points in the present and future.  

My goal is to coach, encourage, guide and remind executives of their potential, their existing skills, capabilities and potential.  

Executive Coaching in London and UK, Individual development coaching

Individual Development

There are many areas that an individual can benefit from with business coaching.  

  • Reaching personal goals and general performance improvement
  • Returning to work after a lengthy period of absence (or perhaps maternity leave)
  • Taking on new role, a promotion or additional responsibilities
  • Trying to tackle work-life balances 
  • Dealing with increasing stress levels 

Executive Coaching in London and UK, team coaching

Team Coaching

Getting the most out of a team is vital if a business is to function effectively and efficiently.  Although I don’t usually get involved in the selection of team players, I can help to build the team so that it works in harmony and at optimum performance.

This can take the form of individual 1:1 sessions as well as group workshops.  Some of the opportunities include:

  • Issues of role and conflict
  • Making the most out of the skills of each team player 
  • Tackling frustrations and hidden issues
  • Finding the right person for the right role with personal profiling (if required)
  • Improving team morale




Engagement Framework and Boundaries 

No coach is the same and nor should they be, however the process goes through similar phases. This starts with intake, assessment, goal setting and a development plan. The process then goes through the development plan, with periodic check-ins with the executive’s managers. The process is over when the development plan is achieved or when the coach and/or client decide that it should stop.

The typical duration of the coaching engagement is normally 6 to 12 months, however it may differ depending on the issues that the client wants to resolve. Normally I prefer my coaching sessions to be face to face, as my understanding goes deeper because I can analyse non-verbal communication from the client. However, I can and do have coaching sessions through Skype, Zoom and the phone.

Before I start work I first establish the terms and framework of our engagement. The typical engagement stages are :


1. Contract

Establish clear contractual terms

2. Confidentiality

The first and most important aspect I discuss is confidentiality. For the coaching to be a success the coaching sessions must be held in confidence and the individuals and participants must trust that the content of the conversations will not be shared. Often my client is the manager or the company. However, the subject matter of personal conversations must remain the privilege of the coach and the individual or group discussion. If someone believes what they say will be passed back to a business owner or manager they will be less trusting and will not be free and open. This will lead to a less effective coaching session.

All the conversations between the coach and the client are strictly confidential. I work with third parties called sponsors (the organisation that pays for their employee), and sponsors will receive periodic updates (dates, achievements and so forth) but nothing else will be shared without the client’s permission.


3. Time

Secondly, the individuals need to be able to allocate free time at appropriate intervals to undertake the coaching. These sessions should be agreed in advance. Regardless of business pressures and workload I need to agree and schedule the time they will have available. I will establish diary dates so that other work events can be scheduled around these sessions

4. Goals

Third I will work with you to agree the issues, opportunities and associated goals.

5. Coaching process

Finally, I will discuss and agree my approach, methods of communication and possible reporting, if required. I start by documenting the drivers and reason for the coaching sessions. I will explain how I undertake my coaching what I am able to achieve and how I will communicate with the individuals and sponsors.
