Leadership Coach - Bristol & London


Whether you are looking to harness the power of agile teams, focus yourself on more strategic goals or position yourself for a more senior position, I can help you understand and master yourself.

It's likely that you have got to where you have because of your expertise and problem-solving ability. However, what got you here is unlikely to get you there.

Nowadays you will need to flex your leadership style on a daily, perhaps even hourly, basis. You will need to show vulnerability, trust, delegate and make tough, sometimes unpopular decisions.

Based on the ORGANIC agility® framework, I help you understand and work through the thought patterns and assumptions that make some of those things challenging, while developing greater confidence to adopt more contextually appropriate leadership styles.

As the author of five best-selling and award-winning books on leadership and coaching, a TEDx and global keynote speaker, I have a 20-year track record of helping people from all sorts of industries and domains develop greater personal and organisational agility and resilience.

I work with leaders like you to develop your agile leadership ability and to grow leadership as a capability throughout your organisation. If you need to evolve your leadership to harness the power of self-organising, agile teams and develop greater resilience to the rapid and complex changes you are facing today then you've come to the right place.

Geoff transformed the way I thought about agile leadership. He took time to understand my preferred styles and we worked together on coaching outcomes which retained my authenticity whilst amplifying impact. Geoff’s expertise in all things agile, combined with his intuitive and relaxed coaching style, meant that I entered into my first big agile leadership role with confidence.

When I found myself at a crossroad in my career, Geoff threw me a lifeline. His 1-2-1 coaching and his continuous support has been instrumental to what I've achieved professionally in the last couple of years. He's able to challenge your thinking and reasoning and help you explore paths you didn't think were open to you before. He has a rare ability to listen with curiosity, to draw from his extensive experience and to trigger a deep self-reflection with just one question. I was also very fortunate to attend Geoff's CSP-SM course and he is not only an accomplished coach but also a very engaging trainer and excellent facilitator, able to give everyone enough space to contribute, and adapt the pace of the course to the dynamics of the group. I have not been on a course before where I've felt I learnt as much from the content delivered as from the trainer and how they delivered it. I would highly recommend Geoff's courses and coaching sessions to anyone but especially those who want to take their career to the next level. Alessia Mariani - Agile Coach

I had the pleasure of being coached by Geoff when I first became a scrum master a number of years ago and he has supported me through my agile career ever since. Geoff's personable, relaxed and confident energy creates a trusted and reassuring environment which meant I felt comfortable opening up and effectively tackling a range of deep rooted topics. He expertly balances creating a space for you to explore your challenges/ opportunities through effective coaching and giving insight by drawing on his extensive experience and knowledge of human behaviour, business agility and flow. When it comes to group sessions Geoff has a considered, informed and considerate approach to planning and facilitation resulting in effective navigation of 'the groan zone' and arriving at desired outcomes. Geoff has been pivotal in my agile journey and I can honestly say that I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for his help, support and guidance. L.S.

Geoff is a brilliant leadership coach. I have attended a few courses and several 1:1 sessions with him. I especially enjoyed Geoff‘s rich knowledge and experience on agile leadership and culture so that I walked away from each session with more clarity and confidence. Geoff knows how to dance the line between being friendly, warm, and empathic and being strict, challenging, and thought-provoking extremely well; and that makes him a very effective coach. Although I already went through several corporate leadership development programs, Geoff really brought me to a new level. Hence, I think it‘s fair to say that any decent leader should experience Geoff at least once in his/her career! David K. Global Diagnostics Partnering Leader.
