What our clients say
One-to-one sessions with my thinking partner have been stimulating, inspiring and hugely productive. He helps bring out real insights and offers tools that you can use immediately. His focus on helping you identify your ‘purpose’ and what really energises you, is incredibly powerful and has the ability to transform your effectiveness as a leader
Antonio, Marketing & Communications Director
My thinking partners have facilitated a programme on organisational empathy which has comprised team workshops and individual coaching. The coaching has been there both to embed the workshop learning and to support team members with their specific developmental needs. Our thinking partners have offered expert and professional support, able to understand the needs of the business and individuals alike, and as a result, have enabled the team to grow and develop individually and collectively.
Chris, Executive Vice President, Global Media Company
My thinking partner is warm, insightful and engaged. Through working with her I have developed new insights into the direction I am taking with my work in a very short period of time. I thoroughly recommend her as a coach. Her multicultural background is a real strength
Lesley, Executive Coach
My thinking partner has helped me to work through problem scenarios and formulate plans to address them, and influence business decisions beneficial to us. His practical experience of having ’been there and done it’ has been immensely useful. He has given me greater self-awareness and understanding of the impact of my behaviours on others, helped me improve my thinking and above all my leadership.
Ian, General Manager of Business Operations, Fintech Company
My conversations with my thinking partner have changed my whole point of view. At the end of the programme, I had a clear, confident and exciting view of the future. My thinking partner’s style is patient, wise and considerate, just what you need to get to the root of a problem and develop your own solution.
