Executive Coaching

If you operate at a senior level, Executive Coaching can provide you with a priceless opportunity to:

  • Think – space and time out to reflect, reconsider, gain clarity
  • Access a non-judgemental ‘sounding board’
  • Be challenged – status can be a barrier to your team and colleagues challenging you about your strategy, approach or behaviour
  • Gain support around managing performance in your team and wider organisation
  • Plan how to engage key stakeholders in your strategic vision
  • Work out how to effectively lead change
  • Explore potential career progression

‘Coaching’ essentially consists of a series of really useful conversations. Typically 3-6 coaching sessions of 1.5 – 2 hours are required.  Sessions can be face to face, at a mutually agreed location, or via ‘phone or video call.

Various tools can be used to help you develop at a senior level.  For example: MBTI; SDI; Clarity 4D; Emotional Capital Report; PROPHET or a leadership 360 feedback report.

Alison’s Masters in Executive Coaching, with Distinction, and Ashridge Business School Accreditation back up her vast practical experience of coaching leaders and business executives over the past 20 years.  In addition to  her experience and qualifications, Alison’s clients also benefit from her 26 years’ commercial and leadership experience at John Lewis.

Client Feedback

“I found the session gave me time to think and forced me to be more reflective.”

“For the first time in my senior career, I truly believe that I have the ability to go to the next level.”

“She always looks to draw out their strengths but I particularly valued the way Alison drew out my areas for improvement without me realising it at the time!”

“Worthy of note, is the secure environment Alison creates which allows you to really trust the relationship, knowing there is no agenda. Alison is a great listener.”
