Delivering step-change results - the combination of clear strategy and great execution, requires leadership teams able to move beyond politics and competing agendas. This requires new ways of thinking and acting. We call these the Six A-Grade Performance Factors:
It is simple. It is obvious. And yet so many organisations admit to falling short of the ambitions they set. Were the ambitions too lofty? Maybe. But evidence shows it is more likely to be competing priorities, misaligned resources and organisational inertia.
If you would like to understand how your organisation could benefit, take a look at how to engage with us.
As an executive coach, Mark works with senior leaders to increase their influence at an executive level and improve their performance as both a strategic leader and a functional head.
Mark practices an integrated model of executive coaching. This recognises that every coachee in the working context has considerations placed on them by themselves (for example, their ambitions, capabilities, beliefs and values), the role they hold, the organisation within which they perform that role and the wider stakeholder situation. These contexts can often seem to pull in different directions and so create challenges for the leader.
As an experienced leader himself, Mark recognises many of the pressures his coachees face and enables them to uncover new thinking and generate new solutions that create personal and organisational growth.
As a mentor, he provides support to high potential individuals focusing on developing skills, behaviours and resilience.
Mark is an NLP Master Practitioner, accredited by the International NLP Trainers Association, and holds a PostGraduate Certificate in Executive Coaching & Mentoring.
"Having undertaken a programme of coaching with Mark over a couple of months, I have no hesitation in recommending him as an Executive Coach. He quickly put me at ease and, whilst some of what we covered was personally challenging for me, I always felt in a safe space. He is an excellent non-judgemental listener, with a gift for nudging to ensure that the most appropriate ideas and concepts are considered. He brought clarity and insight which helped me to generate some really significant breakthrough moments. I am definitely better equipped to manage the demands of a high pressure and complex role as a result". Director of Operations (Higher Education Sector)
