About

Ex-corporate career, now a leadership coach and business strategist.

Hello, I’m Chris. I’m a Leadership Coach and Business Strategist helping people just like you to get unstuck and feel clearer on exactly what you need to do, to create meaningful change in your career, business or life, so that you can achieve your definition of success.

With a knack for asking the right question, a genuine curiosity to listen and a straight-talking Yorkshire style I want to help you to get where you want to be faster!

Approach

We will partner together, 1:1, to help you get clarity on what you want, create a plan of how to get there and keep you accountable to stay on track. We will get it all out of your head and create a plan that works by thinking through each action every step of the way.

What that means is we will take it step by step based on what is the most important area to work on, and that other areas can flow from. We might start by trying to unpick what success really looks like for you and what is holding you back from getting what you want from your work and life. This might be identifying what change you want to make, exploring assumptions that get in the way, developing the skills you need to get there, having the space to say out aloud what they really want, creating plans and goals for the next few months/years or simply having a safe space to be heard.

Together we’ll work on:

  • Building clarity on your career direction
  • Setting realistic goals that you can achieve
  • Creating a plan to improve your skills
  • Exploring ways to avoid burnout and improve wellbeing
  • Overcoming Imposter Syndrome
  • How to delegate effectively and trust others
  • Catastrophising less
  • Have someone who keeps you accountable along the way!
