About me

Executive Coaching Guildford & London

My mission is to help leaders and leadership teams be the best they can be so they, in turn, make the biggest positive difference for themselves, their people and society. I help leaders and their teams to reach new levels of performance and satisfaction.

Coaching challenges typically include:

- Helping non-optimal or dysfunctional leadership teams to perform. - Career transition, internally or externally - taking on new challenges and positions. - Executive presence. - Assisting leaders to lead change, develop compelling and authentic visions that move those they lead to action. - Presenting to larger audiences in an inspirational manner. - Helping leaders with ‘derailers’, those characteristics that hold them back from making further progress, in both career and results. Clients tell me that they value the practical and pragmatic approach I take. I see my role as helping others be free and able to make much better choices for themselves, in their work and careers so they can have happier, more successful, worthwhile lives.

Coaching programme

After an initial chemistry session, any coaching programme is co-designed with the client to meet their needs. I’m happy working both face to face and via telephone or video, though team coaching does need to be face to face.

Positive impact on productivity & performance

I’d be pleased to provide testimonials and references depending on your coaching need. In evaluations of 34 clients I average between Very Good and Outstanding (top) across 9 factors, including - Satisfaction with Progress - Value of the Coaching - Positive Impact on Relationships with Clients, Customers and Colleagues - Positive Impact on Productivity and Performance.

A very brief phone call with Gregor helped me become clear on how to approach what might have become a difficult meeting, and use it instead to get clarity on how my team can work more productively and more harmoniously together. Thanks Gregor! DO, MD Life Science company

Not only did I get what I wanted from the coaching, I got a lot more too. Gregor never gave the answer, I always came up with it myself and his coaching helped build my confidence.

I worked with Gregor over a period of several months on a range of professional challenges. I found him extremely engaging and enjoyable to work with. He draws upon a wide array of psychological perspectives, offering a great mix of theoretical insight with really practical tools and techniques. He is genuinely client-focused. He really helped me move forward and will, I'm confident, be someone I call on again in the future. JG, Head of Digital

I believe the team coaching we’ve received has been invaluable, both for me personally and also for the board I work with. For the board, the coaching sessions we have shared have made us more of a coherent team - fully conscious of the vital role we can play in taking our company forward, focused on developing a successful strategy, trusting in the roles each of us plays and willing to share with and help each other.

I was fortunate in recently experiencing Gregor's coaching skills and found him to be professional, empathic and insightful. He certainly challenged and supported me and in doing so he deepened my understanding of myself and my potential blind spots too. Whilst we only had a few hours of working together, I benefited from his refreshing and very 'present' style of coaching. Thank you Gregor.

Gregor is an excellent coach. We worked together to quickly understand my goals & development needs through stakeholder interviews and put in place a clear plan. During the execution of the plan he provided the right balance of support and challenge. I would highly recommend Gregor and would welcome the opportunity to work with him again. M. W.

Gregor provided superb insight, challenge, support and advice as a coach. He has a flexible approach which allowed us to explore a huge range of topics and develop genuinely meaningful and practical outcomes which I could easily apply in my day to day activities. I found the whole coaching programme with Gregor a hugely motivating, challenging and ultimately rewarding experience. J. E.
