The last decade, and possibly even more recently, for many organisations has been time of focussing on leadership through empowerment and involvement.
Senior managers in modern businesses
are under tremendous pressure to rapidly generate results, and
simultaneously (and sometimes conflictingly) care for and develop
loads are now hugely different to what they were previously.
The current business environment, especially after the global recession and financial meltdown, has taught us that this approach is simply not robust enough. What is required in today's working environment is developing a sharper business edge - the decade for pragmatic performance coaching. Our approach as coaches is not to have comfortable 'chats' and conversations with our clients as many, so called, coaches do. Although always constructive, we believe in giving people direct and often challenging feedback and advice that is not wrapped up in today's political correctness.
Rapid impact coaching and swift personal change and development is the result.
Recent studies show that work loads (and stress levels)
are increasing by between 7-15% each year! The old 40/40/40 rule (40 hour
week for 40 weeks per year for 40 years) has been replaced with 'produce
the same activity but do it in less than half the time'. Charles Handy
refers to the 'half by two by three principal' - pay half as many people
twice as much to do three times more work. These are only some of the
pressures upon senior managers today - and it will get harder!
Needs of Senior Leaders
In an increasingly complex and dynamic business
environment, senior managers need specialised coaching support. They need
assistance to achieve their maximum potential. They also need support that
is objective and not constrained by the corporate mindset and culture
within the organisation itself - paraphrasing what Einstein said 'the same
thinking which got you into the problem won't get you out'.

experienced, specialist executive coaches, able to directly support the
