Our Team

We are deeply proud of our team

We share a passion for making quality leadership development available to the many rather than the few. We hold to the highest quality standards and invest heavily in the ongoing professional learning for our coach community.

The breadth of our curriculum and the quality of our professional development means that we are an employer of choice for coaches globally.

We believe in the accreditation of coaching as a profession. Just as all schools require teachers to be qualified, we require all our coaches to hold professional coaching qualifications. Coaches are also expected to have a minimum of 5 years professional experience as leadership coaches before they join us.

We have over 250 coaches in our global coach community.

250 coaches, 37 countries, 27 languages

Meet our UK team

Our UK team has experience with universities, colleges, preschools and the full range of school contexts, including primary and secondary.  We work with multi-academy trusts to enable a change across multiple schools at the same time, third sector organisations, and professional bodies such as the NAHT.

Our team holds Masters degrees in Psychology, Human and Organisational Systems, Management and Education as well as Certificates in Training and Assessment. Coaches are accredited in a range of diagnostic assessment tools, including Myers Briggs MBTI®, LSI, Hogan, Firo-B®, Genos Ei, Leadership Circle and AITSL 360°. We have people trained in facilitation, executive coaching, ontological coaching, life coaching, performance coaching, career coaching, team coaching, coaching supervision and neuro linguistic programming.

We have 25 coaches and facilitators across the UK. Our coaches are typically members of the International Coach Federation, with Professional Coach or Associate Coach credentials. Meet some of our team below.
