“ John adds significant value to our business. His approach is deeply grounded in the financial aspects of business management, and is supported by broad knowledge of the business context. He is supportive and challenging in a mix that gets the best out of me, causing me to question and evaluate my decisions, formulate new thinking and maintain motivation and momentum.
I particularly value that his focus is on understanding me as a person running the business as well as the financial bottom line, and that he recognises that both are critical to business success. I recommend him to anyone looking to add value to their business by improving the quality of their decision making
Chris Gage C.E.O. Ladder to the Moon
“My initial apprehension about undertaking coaching were blown away by John’s kind, thoughtful and insightful approach.
John’s coaching has helped me to define my goals in a clear headed way and in a step by step manner that has given me confidence in my ability to achieve them.”
Caroline Forbes: Lettings and Property Management
“The coaching was very useful as it enabled me to identify the various choices that I had at a very difficult period in my life. We translated these goals into a set of objectives and actions that I am currently working through. John’s tenacity with establishing my underlying motivations and drivers has really helped me to be more proactive and assertive in achieving these goals.”
Sales Executive – Citrix Systems
“John has always been able to ask me the right questions. Several times this has resulted in re-thinking my assumptions and changing my approach. This is not always the most comfortable of experiences but John is always able to be supportive and handle this in a positive way. John’s coaching has already had an impact on my performance at work.”
Head of Product Data Management – Avon Cosmetics.
“Kathryn was asked to provide an outsourced recruitment short-listing service, with very tight deadlines. She was very professional in her approach, understood the brief clearly and quickly and was able to provide us with a written proposal within 24-hours of our initial meeting. She was a truly integrated member of the team, completed on time without any chasing from Shoosmiths, despite the approaching deadline and the influx of last minute applications that put extra pressure onto the timescales. “Without Kathryn’s consistently hard work, the process would not have run so smoothly and she was able to respond with great flexibility – I can’t thank her enough!”
Professional Recruitment Manager, Shoosmiths
“I presented a challenging case in that I had a vague idea of goals and objectives. Nevertheless John worked through a systematic process towards the identification of discrete goals. I have subsequently appreciated the value of the coaching process and its potential to deliver continual improvement.”
Projects Director – Transport Planning and Regeneration
“Kathryn has encouraged me to face my fears, set goals and be creative about my problem solving… as a direct resuIt of her encouragement I successfully acquired a new role. I will miss the opportunity to reflect and discuss with her”
Inspector, North Wales Police Force.
“I have been able to talk openly about what has been on my mind and John has been an excellent listener. He has taxed my brain to its maximum not just in the sessions but out of them as well which I have found very helpful in helping me to independently resolve some of the issues that I had been struggling with.”
Teaching Assistant and Small Business Owner.
“With Kathryn’s help and guidance I was able to structure my preparations by actively seeking the evidence required, documenting the evidence, reading the necessary documents and rehearsing interview questions/ answers. My sessions with Kathryn ensured that I was motivated and always heading in the right direction to achieve my goal. I wouldn’t have done it without her help!”
Sergeant, City of London Police (successfully prepared and passed promotion board)
“John has a wonderful manner when coaching over the phone, he is always interested and encouraging, he knows when to listen and when to keep me on track. He fills the coaching sessions with fun, laughter, enthusiasm and thoughtful questions.”
