During your executive coaching experience we:

  • Create a safe relaxed atmosphere of trust that helps facilitate confidential conversations.

  • Listen deeply with a sense of curiosity.

  • Are independent and pragmatic in everything we do.

  • Act as a sounding board and provide reality checks.

  • Will enable you to listen with your ‘third ear’ to what isn’t being said.

  • Expand your comfort zone so you feel comfortable feeling uncomfortable.

  • Share insights, tools and techniques.

We achieve transformational results that last by:

  • Uncovering with you 'your goals behind your goals'.

  • Helping you see the world differently, and see what you cannot see.

  • Saying what others don't dare to say; we speak the truth.

  • Holding a mirror up and challenging your thinking.

  • Helping you 'think big' in non-linear terms.

  • Removing any immunity to change.

  • Working with clients who are committed to making a step change in their performance to achieve their ambitions.

  • Focusing on being 'on-task' and '100 percent present' for you.

We understand your world and the pressures being leader bring, having previously worked in leadership roles in world leading firms. And importantly, we possess relevant psychological ‘know-how’ that means we create ‘aha’ moments that provide tipping points for permanent change.

Client comments:

“I have had the privilege of working with Roger both in IBM and here in Cisco as a supplier of executive coaching engagements to the business. His no nonsense, pragmatic approach is very different to that offered by many other organisations. I have seen him have fantastic results in the interventions with leaders that we have wanted to develop. His approach to assisting leaders is inspiring, original and different. I highly recommend him.”
— Charlie Johnston, Vice President - HR, EMEAR, Cisco
“I have engaged Roger on a number of occasions now over the past 8 years to coach very senior executives. The results of his work are excellent; the individuals benefit greatly and the organisation notices the positive changes in behaviour and increased inspirational qualities of these leaders. He is also a very insightful guy with lots of original ideas and techniques.”
— Ian Morrice, Group Chief Executive, The Warehouse Group (New Zealand)
I first had the opportunity to engage Roger to work with our senior executive team in Asia Pacific. Roger is a talented consultant whose deep subject matter expertise and coaching ability is evidenced by quality of the outcomes he achieves and the global span of his consulting practice. I can unreservedly recommend Roger to any organisation.”
— Alex Lombardi, Vice President – HR, Asia Pacific, Amadeus
“I’ve known Roger a number of years now as a professional coach for senior leaders. Roger’s style is unique. He is totally committed to the individual he takes on, and in every instance has had a really positive impact on the areas he has focussed on with them. Roger stretches himself to experience new things and new activities to enhance his life experience which he brings into his coaching and network interactions. A truly first class executive coach with plenty of edge in his technique and delivery to keep his clients engaged and “wanting” of their next session.”
— Ian Herrett, Trade Director, B & Q plc
