Full Potential Group‚ĄĘ Executive Coach
‚ÄúThe foundation of my approach is being able to build trust and respect quickly with senior business leaders. I am confident in the ‚Äėhard‚Äô skills of coaching i.e. feedback, challenge and accountability and am able to deploy these skills with senior leaders without provocation or judgement. I intuitively use tools and techniques from a wide variety of psychological approaches including NLP, transactional analysis and Gestalt but I do not impose these on my clients nor allow them to distract the coachee from practical, commercial realities and outcomes.‚ÄĚ
