Coaching & Development

We help people step up to lead, create and embrace change, and become more resilient performers.

Business agility is a leadership issue

If you want your people to embrace change, it takes a different kind of leadership, that engages and enables people to be at their best.

Our coaching & development solutions help managers step up and become leaders of change: Able to unlock the adaptability, creativity and resilience needed for sustainable performance.

Enable and liberate people to unlock change

The demands on your business to be agile have never been greater and this creates new challenges for your people.

Contrary to popular belief, people are not inherently resistant to change. They are naturally adaptable, resilient and collaborative.

Management by command & control, however, inhibits these natural human capacities. Leaders must, therefore, enable and liberate people to unlock change.

Our coaching & development services

We provide a range of coaching & development solutions to help your business become more agile and support transformational change.

Change leadership

Management & leadership development

We develop programmes to enable groups of leaders as they lead transformational change.


Change agent development

We enable change agents to step up and engage, support and coach their colleagues through transformation.

Our approach to leadership development

Leadership development programmes often fall short because because they are generic, irrelevant and slow to deliver impact.

Our approach is different. It is agile, experiential and aimed at creating leadership teams as they transform their business.

The dynamics of motivation and emotion

Our work is underpinned by a psychological framework (Reversal Theory) that emphasises adaptability and helps leaders create the climate for change.
