For all the investment into leadership development, the pressures are increasing – enlightened leaders embrace the use of an executive coach.
With an emphasis on the psychology of the leader, Neil uses Emotional Intelligence as a foundation to the Executive Development Pathway – using a recognised assessment and feedback mechanism to identify areas of strength as well as opportunities for development.
Why use an Executive Coach?
The behaviours, interactions, and outcomes are all dependent upon the psychology of the person: your thoughts, beliefs, attitude and mindset all serve to inform these external activities.

The Executive Coach has a commitment to ensured that the integrated psychology of the leader is in place with a structured approach to success.
