About me

Coach Supervisor Henley-on-Thames


With office locations in HENLEY, CHARLBURY, MANCHESTER, I am an experienced and fully accredited APECS Executive Coach and Coach Supervisor.

"Engaging", "Authentic" and "Empathic" was good to hear when asking people to describe me. "Observant” and "Scarily insightful" made me smile! For these and others, I am both humbled and emboldened by their trust support, and feedback over the years.

Developing leaders


I am passionate about supporting and developing leaders and their teams beyond their current capacity, beyond what they currently believe to be possible. I challenge leaders to think on a grander and more long-term scale, seeing organisational and cultural development as a deliberate strategic intervention to deliver results. I am constantly looking at new and innovative ways to improve individual, team and organisational performance.

Specialisations


- Coaching Supervision
- Team/Organisational Development
- Leadership skills
- Strategic thinking
- Transforming managers into leaders
- Personal and group motivation
- Transformation of relationships and influencing skills, Delegation and conflict
- Improving confidence and self-esteem. Impact, gravitas, and personal presence

The opportunity lies in pursuing and unleashing untapped individual leadership potential. Whatever the resistance, this is where the greatest learning lies. Enabling leaders, teams and organisations to break free from these constraints, is what gets me up in the morning!

Teal management


This is so relevant right now, as we help people understand the opportunities of "Teal" management, exploring the impact that self-management principles can have on building ownership, personal accountability, and the ability of an organisation to rapidly adapt in today’s fast changing VUCA business environment.

I really enjoy our preferred, experiential way of exploration, through the use of creative and innovative coaching tools; Notably our The Experiential Metaphor™ with a track record of producing long term, memorable and motivational results.

As someone recently described it, "The use of physical metaphors by Chris, really gets to the heart of the matter and enables extraordinary transformation."

Coaching signatures


As your Supervisor, I can apply some of this thinking in helping you develop yourself and your practice, particularly if the field of “Teams” or "Teal" thinking is important. By applying the innovative "Coaching Signatures" instrument in the supervision programme, to calibrate your individual coaching style, we can set a foundation for your further coaching development.

So, even if you are just starting out on your coaching journey and want to see what kind of coach you are – come and chat and explore your possibilities!

I look forward to speaking to you.

Following what I saw as a career setback Chris coached me through the experience and helped me reflect and turn it into a positive experience – in which I grew and discovered reserves of energy and determination I didn’t realise I had. He helped me tackle the root cause of a confidence issue and ultimately I ended up in a situation where I learned a lot about myself … which led to me becoming more self-aware and winning promotion and a new role. He's perceptive and great to work with.

I received coaching from Chris soon after I became an MD for the first time and have to say that I could not have survived the promotion without his input. He enabled me to focus on the leadership behaviours and supporting my team to deliver results far better than would have been possible otherwise. Consequently the company trebled in size, (in sales, profits and staff numbers) and it was a hugely rewarding experience. The entire management team received coaching and we all benefited from the input. The problem with personal development is that you don't know what you don't know about what may be holding you back - so an experienced coach that can view the situation dispassionately is invaluable, and an investment that will more than pay for itself very rapidly.

I am a coach myself, and Chris is my supervisor and mentor. we have known each other and worked for more than 12 months, now. I appreciate his presence and care (he is one of the best listeners!), his rich experience and capability to help me look at things from a different perspectives; he makes me think and reflect and identify new insights and choices; he builds deep trust in no time, and so creates a context in which is feels safe to explore concerns, hopes, difficult moments. He also reminds me of my talents, of being at my best. He has helped me become a more aware, better coach. it is good to interact with a wise and caring colleague. If you are looking for a deeply experienced, caring sparring partner and coach: it is him.
