Coaching approach

Colin’s coaching style is to facilitate exploration of the main issues facing an Executive to help them clarify that they are making the necessary decisions and taking the required actions. He helps them identify blind spots and encourages them to engage with a range of possibilities, recognise their current limitations and continually develop their leadership style. He provides a space for reflection and is both a sounding board for ideas and a challenging presence.
