I have greatly appreciated your perspective and guidance. Thank you very much.

Alice, Management Consultant, London

Isn’t it about time your talent, passion, commitment and drive translated into career recognition, fulfilment and satisfaction?

Because you’re excellent at what you do. You work hard. You do a great job. You’re committed. And you get results. To everyone else, your career looks just fine.

But you know something’s missing. You’re not happy like you should be. And from the outside-in, you’re not getting the recognition and reward you’ve earnt. And from the inside-out, you’re not getting the satisfaction and fulfilment you deserve.

And that’s leaving you feeling dissatisfied, demotivated and deeply frustrated.

Because this is just the moment you know you should be excelling in your career. Loving your work, revelling in the challenges and enjoying a deep sense of career satisfaction.

So it’s time to break-out of career autopilot and get intentional with your development. To take action on that feeling you just can’t shake:

“It should be so much better than this!”

You know you’re letting some of the best years of your career drift by and you’re afraid you’ll miss your window if you don’t take decisive action – and soon!

Life’s too short for a career that doesn’t love you back.

So it’s time for a bold decision and focused action. If you only knew where to start. And if you only had the time, motivation, confidence and commitment to make it happen.

What you need now is focus, strategy, decision and action.

And the trusted thinking partner to support you.

This is your PIVOTAL moment.

And in this moment, there’s no need to settle for a career that leaves you feeling so compromised, frustrated and demotivated.

I’ve coached scores of professional women through their PIVOTAL moments and into their new-look, new-feel career. I can do that for you, too.

High performance career coaching is for you if:

  • You’re an ambitious, high-achieving professional woman who knows she wants more from her career – but you’re not yet sure exactly what needs adding or exactly how you’ll achieve it.
  • You find yourself coasting in a career you only tolerate, feeling fatigued, frustrated, undervalued and overlooked. And at just the point in your career when you know your work should be leaving you feeling satisfied, successful and deeply fulfilled.
  • You know just how important it is to your career to embrace this moment – but are struggling to find the time, energy and focus to make meaningful inroads into your longer-term career goals.
  • You’re ready to welcome a thinking partner into your circle to provide the direction, support and accountability you know you need to maintain perfect focus – and the balance between near-term strategies and the long-term vision.
  • You agree with me when I say: your career should be your agenda; your career should excite and fulfil you; and your career should harmonise with your life (not compromise it!).
  • You’re ready to get to work on this, truly excited about the prospect of once again feeling completely energised by a career that inspires, motivates and challenges you; and that leaves you feeling satisfied and fulfilled.

That first session moved me on more
than the last 10 years of my career.

I can’t recommend Dan highly enough. The whole experience has been transformational.

Victoria, Sales VP, Paris

So are you willing to play, all-out?

Because I can’t wait to get to work shaping your next career step.

Here’s how we move forward …

STEP 1

To get started, let’s book time in the diary for a powerful first conversation. And not just a friendly chat or Q&A session. But a deep conversation that will get to the essence of the future you’re ready to create.

STEP 2

After booking your slot via my online calendar, you’ll shortly receive instructions on how to prepare for our call.

STEP 3

On the call, we’ll have a conversation to design the coaching alliance and help you make your final decision to proceed. You’re enrolled when we’re both happy and you make your payment. And that’s it – you’re on board!

Book your initial conversation now by clicking the button below. And let’s get to work!

And if, on that call, you decide not to work with me or we aren’t a perfect fit: no problem. I’ll be happy to share other resources to help get you moving on your leadership agenda.

I had no hesitation in coaching with Dan. It was an easy decision and a great investment.

Deborah, Interim CIO, London

Some final clarifying FAQs.

Q. How will this work in practise?
Ahead of your programme, we’ll work together to design the coaching alliance to perfectly suit both your leadership goals and your working style. As far as possible, we’ll set a regular schedule, minimising disruption to your diary with a mix of in-person and remote sessions. And we’ll only be setting as much between-sessions “homework” as you’re comfortable with and finding beneficial.

Q. How flexible can the schedule be?
I know you’re phenomenally busy. And I can help by offering schedule flexibility, including phone, skype, evening and weekend sessions. But not investing time in you and your development is perhaps one of the reasons we’re talking now. So you’ll need to make a special commitment to the coaching, upfront. And my experience says that’ll get easier as you come to love the time and space away from the day-to-day that coaching provides.

Q. What makes this truly different?
Great question. Because there is a lack of new thinking out there. So I’ve made it my mission to create something that’s different, goes a lot deeper and is far more relevant to today’s questions of “career”. You’ll benefit from deeply transformational coaching – not just “career development”. You’ll experience far more stretch with the thinking than other approaches invite. You’ll really connect with your most authentic leadership self. And you’ll have the neuroscience edge – because everything I coach is backed by contemporary science.

Q. What will I get out of this?
I’ll be sharing with you a whole new take on career that’ll totally shift your thinking. As a result of our work: You’ll get crystal-clear on your most inspiring and authentically-aligned career vision – and get to work creating it. In tandem, you’ll grow in confidence, decision-making and action-taking. You’ll routinely deliver stand-out personal performance. And you’ll achieve a counterbalance to work that leaves you energised to do all this.

Q. What do you need from me?
Another great question. 3 things: commitment to the process; willingness to think anew; and perseverance to push through the challenges. I will be with you, as coach and mentor, every step of the way. But ultimately, it’ll be your insights and agenda we work to; and you’ll be responsible for the results you create. So it’s time to roll-up our sleeves and get to work!

Q. How much does it cost?
Your investment is anything between £2,000 and £8,000 for a 3 – 12 month programme, depending on the exact make-up of that programme which we’ll tailor perfectly to you and your goals. You can read more about my fee structure here.

Q. How do I get started?
It’s really simple. You click the “Book Now” button below and choose a date and time that suits you for an initial consultation call. We’ll use that time to clarify your goals, design our alliance and consider if we’re a good fit. If we’re both happy: you pay your first instalment, we schedule your first session and that’s it, you’re onboard.

In this moment, it’s my coaching mission to inspire you. And my commitment is to work tirelessly to that end: for your success and your satisfaction.

Now, I can’t take responsibility for your results – only you can do that.

But if, for any reason, you’re not 100% satisfied after your first two sessions, I will offer you a full refund. Guaranteed!

I’m so glad I chose to coach with you. It’s
the best career decision I ever made.
