About me

Executive Coach & Supervisor: Henley-on-Thames, Manchester and Charlbury


With office locations in Henley, Charlbury and 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!

Having spent 2 – 3 years in a leadership and management role, I had a series of coaching sessions with Chris with the aim of using my energy more efficiently and intentionally, both in my current role and with a view to potential future opportunities. I was noticing a lot of energy leakage and wasn’t finding this improve with experience; if anything, it was becoming worse. Chris and I met once every 4 – 6 weeks for 12 sessions, meeting in his office to explore both scenarios that I brought to him or program items he felt would be helpful. Program items started with a 360 review including colleagues and family members, and progressed to the Harthill Leadership Development Framework and follow-up analysis. Chris encouraged me to explore managing my energy alongside managing tasks, and to work on language, clarity and the level of detail when delegating to my team. In every case, I found there was something I could take away and apply directly or indirectly to situations at work. Clear tangible benefits were apparent as my working responsibilities increased in the second half of our time together. I found that I had both the vocabulary to articulate my intended approach to leadership and the skills to achieve against the additional demands in a way that I couldn’t have done without the benefit of our time together. I really enjoyed meeting with Chris, and throughout appreciated his insights and perceptive comments about the situations we discussed. BE, Customer Account Technical Manager

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.
