Our coaching practice is based on Transformational coaching that enables leaders to make significant changes.
We provide coaches to managers and executives from our global coaching network to quickly connect leaders with suitable coaches either virtually or in person as appropriate.
Why Transformational Coaching?
To create sustainable shifts in leadership behaviour, individual executive coaching needs to encourage transformational change so people can lead more effectively in their ecosystem.
Transformational coaching addresses both the leader’s personal patterns and the deeper systemic issues in the context the individual faces. This can range from experimenting with new behaviours to influencing more effectively across the organisation and wider stakeholder system.
The Benefits of Transformational Coaching
Our approach helps leaders shift their fundamental beliefs about how they need to lead and what they need to change in themselves. This creates a profound and long-lasting change. We expect leaders to already have addressed their performance issues.
We start with what leadership their organisation or ecosystem needs from them, explore what drives their current behaviours and where a shift in belief will change their focus. Leaders often arrive with their own questions around purpose, transition and their stage in life.
Whether virtually, face to face, or in nature, our coaching can help people by providing:
- Time, space and peace to think
- Scope to see the ecosystems their organisation is part of
- Insights of how to intervene across boundaries
The approach includes:
- Agreeing the purpose of the coaching investment with the key stakeholders
- Providing the leader with a selection of suitable potential coaches to choose from
- Setting a journey of, typically, 6-12 coaching sessions
- Offering a range of feedback and personality assessments as needed eg Hogan, MBTI, EQ360, as well as working with internal processes/assessments
- Using professional coaching supervision to maximise the impact of the coaching process
- Where appropriate, capturing the collective learning for the wider benefit of the organisation.

She has a wealth of experience in corporate and non-corporate environments and can use this to help leaders work through practical options to respond to challenging situations. I found the balance of theory and practical applications really worked for me and enabled me to prep for some big work junctures and steer what could have been tricky situations. I would really recommend working with Margaret, she is a first-class coach.” – Global Channel Transformation Director, FMCG
