Executive coaching

Book a Consultation →

You can’t do it alone. You need a trusted partner who can provide objective feedback, help you set and accomplish goals, and help you make tough decisions. Your partner should be someone who knows you, has a good grasp of the industry you're in and understands the challenges you face.

Are executive coaches the answer?

With a business career spanning over 35 years, I’ve come across hundreds of executives who struggle with daily work and leadership decisions, while wanting more from their lives or careers. Who dislike the regular 9-5, have difficult decisions to make or just desperately need a change to help them live the rewarding, prosperous and fulfilling life they want for themselves and their families.

An executive crystal ball

So let me ask you, If you had a crystal ball and could look into the future right now, what would life feel like if you…

  • Were brimming with self-confidence?
  • Had improved leadership and communication skills?
  • Were more assertive and decisive?
  • Had an injection of motivation and more fire in your belly?
  • Changed your career or accepted that new promotion?
  • Or took a ‘leap of faith’ and invested in that exciting idea?

I expect life would be drastically different if you could suddenly realise these ‘what if’s?’.

So let me ask you, what’s holding you back from turning these ‘what if’s?’, into ‘when’s?’

What’s holding you back?

  • Are you lonely at the top, ladened with responsibility and decisions?
  • At a crossroads, struggling to make important life or work decisions?
  • Are confidence issues holding you back from where you want to be?
  • You’re faced with, perhaps unwanted, changes such as redundancy, retirement, divorce or bereavement?
  • Do you want to understand yourself better; what makes you tick, your strengths and weaknesses and how you can use them to do more?
  • Finding you’re not as productive as you used to be?
  • Are you looking for your passion and true purpose in life?
  • Or perhaps you’re just stuck and need to find a way forward?

When we take the time to pause and reflect on our careers, we can all say we’ve experienced these feelings over the years - they’re the things that hold us all back.

However, the way we overcome these challenges will shape an executive career for years to come. So when you’re at a crossroads, it’s down to you to step in the right direction.

This is where my executive and leadership coaching comes into play.

How executive coaching and mentoring works

As an executive coach, my job is to help and support leaders like you to find your way forward, set goals and hold you accountable. Together we’ll get you to where you want to be and tackle the ever-changing work environment head-on.

With remote/virtual or face-to-face executive coaching sessions that cover:

  • Professional and personal development
  • Leadership coaching
  • Business coaching
  • And career coaching

Unlike some executive coaches with a pre-prepared coaching process - these sessions are tailor-made for you and designed to give you or your organisation a way forward, with the direction you need to thrive and build a positive future for yourself and those around you.

Asking the right questions

As an executive coach, my job centres around asking the right questions and carefully listening to what you say, tapping into the true sentiment behind your words and your thought process.

I learned how to REALLY listen to my clients in a non-judgemental way during my 5 years of counselling and psychotherapy training.

Executive coaching is all about listening properly without judging, I will uncover and support you with any false assumptions, fears and life-limiting beliefs. These are the things that may be holding you back, like insecurity, a lack of confidence, imposter syndrome etc.

Executive coaching like this can help you manage these thoughts and feelings, so they no longer impact your personal or professional life, while working alongside you to gain focus and make a significant impact.

Empowering you to think about the reasons ‘why you can’, rather than ‘why you can’t.’

Let’s decide what you want, make a plan and use coaching to make it happen!

Why should you trust this executive coach?

I’ve been self-employed my entire working life, so as you can imagine, I have gone through it all: the highs and the lows.

So, by combining my business qualifications (DMS & MBA), five years of counselling and psychotherapy training (Person Centred and Transactional Analysis) and getting on for four decades in the commercial world, I can work with you to align your career and personal goals to help you get where you want to be in your life.

Some nice words from my executive coaching clients

Daniel Brookbank. Chief Executive Officer.

"At the age of 50 and having reached a high level in my chosen field I knew that I needed to look at what I was doing and how it fitted with my work/life balance. I wanted the opportunity to work in a more flexible manner and to have time to explore and succeed in other projects. Jason helped me to analyse where I am now and where I want to be, but much more importantly, he helped me find the path to my future. From starting with a whole lot of unanswered questions I ended up with clear answers and achievable goals. Jason’s questioning was clear and challenging and his advice sound and logical. He spent time making me think and understand and he helped me to see clearly through a whole lot of different ideas. I was very pleased that by the time we came to the end of our sessions he had pointed and guided me in such a way that I know what I need to do and how to do it. I would recommend Jason to anyone who is looking to move their career forward or just needs some guidance to help them make changes."

Andrew Durling – Social Entrepreneur.

"I can thoroughly recommend Jason's executive coaching because he is indeed a mentor, and an excellent one at that. His listening skills are superb and he always responds with insight and practical advice. I gained invaluable assistance from my mentoring sessions with Jason and wouldn’t hesitate to use his services again if I’m in need of them. Jason clearly has deep knowledge and experience of the unique challenges involved in starting up, or running, a business, and knows what it takes to transform what seems a daunting challenge into an opportunity for both business and personal growth. Jason was able to create a safe, welcoming space in our mentoring sessions in order to explore my own personal and business experiences, identify any issues unresolved or needing to be addressed and to come up with creative solutions or at least discover the skills and resources I already have which could be used to find the solutions needed. His scrupulous attention to detail and the great care he took to put me at ease and to create the right conditions to make the mentoring sessions work, gave me great confidence in him, which paid off handsomely as the sessions progressed"

Break the cycle with executive coaching

In this 24/7 world, leaders, senior managers, owners and executives are so busy that they don’t have the time to devote to their own development or to the development of the people who work for them. In other words, they’re caught in a vicious cycle of always “being busy.”

In the same way, some struggle and worry about not being able to think clearly. You may have an idea, but you can’t seem to get a clear picture on what to do next, or perhaps you need to make decisions, but you don’t feel confident that the decision you make will be the right one.

This is precisely why you need executive coaching services. As an executive coach, I can help you break the cycle of always being busy while giving you the confidence to make decisions that positively impact your life.

Ready to work towards that positive future?

Unfortunately, though, none of us have a crystal ball. I can’t tell you what life will be like if you do, take that job, wake up filled with confidence, or grow your business tenfold - but what I can tell you is...

If you do nothing, nothing will change.

On the other hand, it’s amazing what we can achieve together when we use coaching to focus on what you really want.
