Even before Covid, the term VUCA had resurfaced as leaders coped with the accelerated pace of change on all fronts.
Executive coaching became mainstream as organisations and their top executives realised the performance benefits.
Now, leaders throughout organisations are expected to maintain their equilibrium and demonstrate leadership excellence, while facing multiple complex challenges as never before. Typically, still only a few are being offered executive transition coaching.

Working on a monthly arrangement, clients can book themselves in for one-to-one coaching sessions when it suits them. Either one-offs or as part of a series for development, clients welcome these in-the-moment sessions as a chance to gather their breath, and collect their thoughts.
