Career & Leadership Coach - London

A London-based versatile, experienced coach, with excellent supporting skills in strategic thinking, non-executive board governance, professional relationship building, mindfulness, organisational development, project and programme management skills, serving a range of public and private sector clients.

What do you want?
Are you a leader or leadership aspirant desire sustained success whilst remaining authentic, developing new perspectives and solutions, beginning with yourself?
Do you want to experience insights that will help you embed Diversity & Inclusion in your leadership?
Are you working long-hours from passion or external pressure and want improved well-being?
Do you want to make better decisions and would value an objective clear thinking, honest sounding board?
Have you felt out of place when 'networking' and want to build solid professional relationships, naturally?
Do you battle distraction and want to improve your focus and attention on what is important?
Is your presence and impact on people, holding your career back, so you desire to be more comfortable in your own skin?
Could there be 'secret' limiting beliefs holding you back from having a go at the things you really want?

My approach
Working through my company Ruuvand, I receive clients from a belief in infinite possibility, the client's and mine. I employ curiosity and listening as core tools to shift mindsets, unlock insights, solutions and challenges. This is because "Who you are being" is often the key to success.

I form a true partnership where the client has the larger stake and my full commitment is to their success. I build rapport quickly and remain light but challenging in conversations.

Strategic thinking with clear purpose, comes naturally to me and has been especially useful in being a sounding-board for clients and in my voluntary non-executive director roles in the past 17 years. Perhaps you are a leader who wants to improve how you use strategic thinking in your decision-making or to excel in leading yourself so you can lead others more effectively.

How would we meet?
I meet over the phone, Skype or face-to-face 3 times a month or as agreed, to maintain a client's momentum towards the future they really want. In-between meetings, I am available for short email check-ins and consultations.

Some client recommendations
"... Without any hesitation I would recommend Joseph to all who may need some clarity in aligning their business strategies and, who are looking for that person who will think not just 'outside of the box', but doing away with the box altogether."

"... By having a personal coach, I was able to address the parts of my role which I had avoided addressing. ... I would not hesitate to work with Joseph in the future."

Write a review

Joseph will bring the best out of you any day. He propped me, mentally, psychologically and spiritually at a moment in my life when I was at my lowest ebb. He asks questions that will bring out the best in you that you never knew existed. I am glad I made that decision to contact him at the time I did. I. S. Enang


Joe's breath of knowledge and experience coupled with his calm and deep dive analytical skills, makes sessions with him so valuable. I've had deep dive sessions with Joe which has been hugely beneficial in the delivery of my projects.


Excellent and extremely dedicated coach


Joe has been excellent coach for me since I hired him 2.5 years ago when I had some serious personal issues. He helped me through the difficult period and now I meet him every 4-6 weeks for a few hours walk & talk. I always look forward to the sessions with Joe, the dialogues are very good, I value his insightful questions and wonderful observations and reflections. I wholeheartedly recommend Joe as a leadership and/or executive coach
