We provide one-to-one coaching services to support individuals in upper middle management and senior leadership roles fulfil their potential – whether in business, the public sector, universities or charities.
One-to-one coaching may be provided as part of one our Leadership Development Programmes or it may be provided as a standalone service for individuals.
Flexible scheduling: Our coaching can be provided as a one-off session, regular sessions for a period of time or through a call-off contract so that sessions are booked “as needed”. Usually, sessions are held face-to-face but we also provide coaching via video or telephone.
Could you benefit from the services of an executive coach?
A coach acts as a sounding board; challenges thinking; stimulates creativity; provides tools and techniques for dealing with situations; gives encouragement; and builds confidence. A coach has unconditional positive regard for their client, has no agenda other than their client’s and is always on the client’s side. Together with good personal chemistry this builds a working partnership based on trust.
What types of issues do we help you with?
The range of issues we can help with is diverse. These are the general themes we come across most often:
- Career development and dilemmas
- Relationships (e.g. conflict, being more influential)
- Work-life priorities (including energy management and resilience)
- Self-awareness (e.g. limiting self-beliefs) and self-confidence
- Personal decisions, dilemmas and “stuckness”
Meet our lead coach: Mike Price, MAC
I am a professionally certified and experienced coach and a Member of the Association for Coaching.
I start with a non-directive approach, believing in your potential and ability to make the right choices for yourself, regardless of my own values, beliefs and ideas. To be of use to you in your journey, I draw on a variety of schools of thinking about coaching and use whichever approaches match your preferences and the issues you are working on.
In developing you as a person I’m particularly influenced by approaches drawn from ‘Gestalt coaching’ and ‘systemic facilitation’. These help to bring clarity and direction where there is otherwise ambiguity and uncertainty. If you feel you are ‘stuck’ and/or overthinking an issue, these approaches can help you reach a breakthrough very quickly.
To improve your performance in meeting an objective I draw on complementary approaches such as cognitive behavioural coaching (sometimes referred to ‘CBT’), solution focused approaches, and goal orientated coaching (e.g. the ‘GROW’ model).
To raise your self awareness I make use of pyschometrics, such as MBTI, theories of motivation, attachment theory and other frameworks.
Feedback from your employer, colleagues, family and friends can often form an important input into your coaching sessions. Where appropriate I draw on my own experience to offer you observations and insights.

What can you expect?
“From the start of my sessions with Mike I have always felt comfortable. He is non-judgemental, listens carefully and engages closely with the subject matter. He does not offer a personal opinion but guides you sensitively towards potential solutions. I feel he has a lot of empathy but always retains a professional approach. He has the ability to listen intensely and this is proven by the questions he asks in order to probe more deeply into the various issues. Clear goals have been set on how to cope with my trigger points. These have worked particularly successfully and are on-going.”
