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

Deborah, Interim CIO, London

Isn’t it about time your stand-out leadership translated into engagement, recognition, fulfilment and success?

Because you’re excellent at what you do. You work hard. You get results. You’re known for doing a great job.

But that hasn’t yet led to the recognition you know you deserve. And that’s left you feeling frustrated, undervalued and overlooked.

Thankfully, you’ve always been someone who takes the initiative and rises to a challenge. It’s a big part of your successes to date.

And that’s great – because we both know no good will come of you shrinking from this moment.

So, it’s time to get to intentional about this next phase of your journey. But in your position, it’s demanding enough to do a great job without having to worry about yet more leadership development.

Where to start? How to fit it all in? How to stay motivated? Where to go for trusted support?

What you need now is the counterbalance that will help you embrace this moment and fulfil your highest potential.

Leadership Pivot Programme Overview

  • STAND-OUT PERSONAL PERFORMANCE We’ll distinguish your personal performance and inspire the best from those around you with brain-based strategies necessary to get focused, find inspiration, stay motivated, make powerful decisions and ensure you truly show-up in the showcase moments.
  • ENERGISING COUNTERBALANCE You can’t give what you don’t have. So part of our work will be establishing a well-balanced, well-paced tempo to your working life. And leave you in a sustainable rhythm that guards against burnout and maintains your motivation, energy, creativity and hunger for the job.

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

Marcella, Programme Manager, London

So are you willing to play, all-out?

Because I can’t wait to get to work shaping your move to the next level.

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.

When I decided to have 1-2-1 coaching with Dan, I knew I had made the right decision.

Liz, Programme Management Consultant, 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 “leadership”. You’ll benefit from deeply transformational coaching – not just “leadership 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 leadership that’ll totally shift your thinking. As a result of our work: You’ll get crystal-clear on your most inspiring and authentically-aligned leadership agenda – and get to work creating it. In tandem, you’ll come to dominate your sphere of influence, exercising adaptable leadership intelligence and routinely delivering stand-out personal performance. And we’ll make sure we 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!
