One of the reasons that Chris became an executive coach was his own positive experience of working with one while a senior executive.
“Having a space to step out of the work environment, to regain perspective, and then to go back into the work environment with a fresh mind and clarity of purpose, resulted in my better performance and better outcomes, both professionally and personally.”
As a coachee, for Chris the real value was created with:
“The insight and realisation that the route to getting colleagues and team members to change their behaviour, resided in how effectively I could change my own behaviour. For me this was a personally liberating and professionally empowering insight.”
Chris believes he adds real value to clients who are looking to embark on a journey of behavioural change, having successfully made the journey himself as a senior business leader. In this rapidly changing business environment Chris believes that:
“Leaders need to develop their 'response-ability', their capacity to access their own better informed and deeper perspective, enabling sharper insights, access to their response-ability to choose better options and make better decisions.”
