Richard has a huge amount of experience and knowledge that he draws on and provided a great insight into my development. He prompted me to embark on true self-reflection, making me look at my career priorities, my personal development and my motivational drivers. After working with him I now have a clear plan for my next steps, my personal development and an achievable career pathway for the next 5 years, which I wouldn’t have had without his insight, coaching and guidance.Find out more
My coaching sessions have significantly changed the way I approach my career. Richard helped me to set a focus for each meeting, yet provided the flexibility and safe space to explore professional issues more deeply than I had anticipated.
I was particularly impressed with how he was able to apply his experience to a professional discipline with which he was unfamiliar. At the end of each meeting he tied together the issues discussed and where appropriate followed up with some written reflections and an action plan, which was very useful. Thanks Richard!Find out more
I have really appreciated his ability and capacity to listen, not just to my words but to what I might not be saying. His helpful reflecting back and the space I was given to access by best thinking have brought insights which have enabled me to move my organisation forward with greater clarity and confidence.
Richard’s approach and style is warm, encouraging, affirming yet incisively and appropriately challenging; I have grown in my leadership through each conversation.
I would recommend any senior leader/manager/Director/Chief Executive who is driven to improve their work and their organisation, by developing themselves, to contact Richard.Find out more
