Our qualified coaches work on a one-to-one basis with senior executives to help them achieve their potential in all areas of their working lives. Underpinned by 360° psychometrics, the coaching process is challenging, searching, stimulating and supportive. Above all, it builds confidence, empowering the individual to achieve greater influence and more successful outcomes.
We can use personal profiling to highlight preferred styles of working and to show how this shapes team dynamics.
We teach people to appraise their own strengths and development needs, and show them how to identify unhelpful behaviours and to adapt them to better connect with others, all to enable them to become the best they can be.
In addition, to sustain the benefits of executive coaching throughout the organisation we can design accredited programmes to help train individuals in your team as professional coaches.
Executive coaching client testimonials
Ernst & Young
"Nevin is a very impressive Coach and expert in OD – she has a fantastic understanding of a number of industries and is extremely down to earth. She has a straight talking style that is refreshing in this line of work”.
“I have had coaching sessions from Nevin, which have helped in consciously working towards areas, which needed further developing and honing. With simple straightforward techniques, her sessions are not overbearing and have helped me to identify and prioritise key development areas of my personal and professional life. Her direction and recommendations have helped me with my ongoing development. I certainly would recommend Nevin without hesitation.”
“With Nevin's help and guidance I identified areas of improvement in both my work life and personal life. Simple and easy to understand techniques yielded what I found to be substantial improvements and results in both spheres of my life. I would fully recommend the coaching that Nevin offers”
“I was fortunate enough to first meet with Nevin in the Autumn of 2008
Nevin has a level of passion and skill that is unusual in both its breadth and depth. She combines management and leadership development, with organisational change and business coaching in a focused and pragmatic way. I would describe her as a business person with a full commercial understanding, who has a passion for people and their development, rather than the other way round. As such, she is rare. So rare, that if I was asked to put together a team to develop individuals, teams, or to drive organisational change, Nevin would be at the top of my list. I would recommend her to anyone considering individual, team or organisational development and change”

Hampshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
“I have found our coaching relationship to be the single most valuable thing I have experienced in my 17 year NHS career for developing myself, my insight and my effectiveness in the workplace.
“I found it really easy to establish a productive working relationship with you from our first meeting and I felt a you had tremendous insight into the challenges facing me, and we worked together to address these.
The whole process has been transformational in terms of my self confidence, self awareness, and performance. I’ve been able to tackle issues that have been holding me back for several years.
“I’ve come away from coaching with some really helpful tools and ideas which I’ve been implementing but more critically a much better understanding of myself, individuals and how to influence and negotiate with them”
“Nevin as a coach is a great listener and I found her approach very motivating I learnt new stuff and was able to bring back learning’s from years ago that been filed away in my mind. By setting simple objectives getting me to focus in the right areas and by delegating more to my area team I freed up more time for me and my team to get more creative in what we wanted to achieve. I think the results the area team achieved bear testament to what the sessions with Nevin allowed me to deliver. Every other objective we set as an area team we exceeded. I myself felt revitalized and this culminated in an award from my peers at the December regional meeting acknowledging my contribution to the region. I had it in me, Nevin’s coaching bought it to the fore and for this I would like to thank her so much”.

De Lage Landen Leasing Ltd
“In 2010 David ran a team building event for De Lage Landen. It was a newly formed team from a variety of disciplines and David understood exactly what we needed without actually needing much input from us. The day ran without a hitch! David made the team feel comfortable immediately with the result that everybody participated actively in the tasks. As one of the team commented afterwards: "I never thought I'd say this about a team building event - I loved it". 3 months on and people are still talking about it.
David has also commenced a coaching programme and the results have been immediately observable. We look forward to developing our relationship with David further in 2011.”
