I have worked with Richard a couple of times over the last few years and have found him to be a fantastic and very natural coach. He has assisted me greatly in my personal development as a leader. Dave Bird - National Sales Manager - Spirax Sarco
I worked with Richard over a 6month period in 2018. During this time he guided me in using my inner leadership skills & values and develop them into core managerial skills. Engaging with my own psychological flexibility & being considerate of a mindful approach I was able to break the boundaries between middle & upper management in my company. Following on from a very successful course with Richard, engaging with all the learnings I was promoted from a team manager to the CCO. I feel that my emotional intelligence has grown and grown and i can identify easily now my different core strengths and those I need to work on. I still feel that I am benefiting from working with Richard as I refer to the course workbooks over and over when I feel I need to re-engage with 'the programme'. I couldn't recommend Richard & his Management Development Programme enough. Thanks to all his direction I am a better leader & more qualified manager. Adele Curran - Chief Customer Officer
I worked with Richard as my coach across 2016/17 with my goal of being an “intrapreneur" who makes the business I’m taking care of sustainable. I want to innovate to surprise our audiences, foster people around a vision and multiply others’ talent. And in my business, there is a lot of passion and emotions, everything moves very fast and things change constantly. As I was gaining seniority, it was hard for me sometimes to keep a “cool head" when taking decisions. Thanks to Richard, I got way closer to achieving this goal! I became a better leader by clarifying my innate talent, managing my emotions better, understanding the complex system I’m working within and multiplying others to get their best. Richard provided me with tips and frameworks that help me navigate through this system better every day . There has been a before and after Richard for sure!
It's been an absolute pleasure to work with Richard as my first coaching experience. The work on values and managing emotions really helped me while I was taking on a new role. I highly recommend Richard, he is great at understanding individual challenges and coming up with frameworks that helped me finding the solutions by myself.
Richard worked with me to better deal with being a boss & deal with stress. He is relaxed in his manner but takes his work very seriously.
I worked with Richard over 6 month period to help me prepare to move from a Director level role to a COO role. During that time Richard helped me through a number or challenges, specifically with gaining confidence in moving away from tactical thinking, looking at real-time results and into a more strategic mindset where results typically take much longer. Additionally, Richard provided me with some great techniques to help me address my 'self-talk' and step outside my comfort-zone when working in larger groups. Being an introvert at heart, the time spent with Richard has helped me both professionally and personally. I highly recommend him as Executive Coach and look forward to working with him again in the future. ACC.
This was my first coaching experience, and well needed as I entered recently an executive role, involving interaction and influencing in an executive environment. I loved the practical approach that Richard is using, with simple applicable tips and tools, that you can use as triggers in the real life environment. I found it much more useful than theories that we can all agree and understand but may have difficulties to leverage in daily life. This coaching really made a difference for me, being much more comfortable in my role and interactions, with positive feedback regarding the way peers look at my leadership style and empowerment.
