London Business & Executive Coach

Book a complimentary online consultation to allow us to discuss your London business & executive coaching needs. I work with individuals and organisations who have an eye on wellness, growth, performance and determination. My approach is to focus on increasing emotional intelligence, designing communication for an outcome, personal growth, plus effective decision making to meet strategic needs.

Growth for business leaders, executives & entrepreneurs

Frustration, sadness, worry and other emotions hold us back from achieveing what we desire. Discovering our needs, and aligning with the needs of the organisation and customers, can create a more coordinated approach, solving ongoing difficulties, and a creating more productive environment.

“The difference from my first session to now is life changing for me. The growth is so wonderful”.

Increase individual & team productivity

Managers, executives & business owners will have tried options to improve effiency within themselves and their employees. Forcing change is rarely effective. Professional coaching can help discover what’s truly blocking progress, and lead to new and more successful paths.

Reduce organisational stress

Increased stress is known to increase sick days. Employees, managers and business owners can feel disempowered to deal with increasing stress, which leads to organisational inefficiency. Understanding the root cause of stress can lead to new solutions and deliver improved efficiency.

Increase emotional intelligence

Our emotions are our humanity. Some people are deep feelers who wear our hearts on our sleeves, whereas others internalise their emotions and will occasionally blow up. Creating an amicable environment will lead to a happier and more creative workforce.

New harmonious paths

Understanding everyone has positive intentions behind their entrenched positions can lead to discovering previously discounted options. A strategic harmony, where the entire organisation is aligned behind a path, can meet the needs of everyone involved.

Becoming unstuck requires taking a step back and finding a new path

If you’ve plateaued, or see other repeating patterns that aren’t serving you, I’d love to help you to discover new paths.
Apple followed this approach with their Mac computers. Unable to break Windows’ dominance, they created a music player, then a phone, became popular, and eventually Mac gained the success they wanted. They took a step back and found a new journey.

“I’m doing really well. Probably the best I’ve been. I have to thank you for the tools you’ve given me to deal with issues.”

32 tasks to hire me for, and 9 to choose someone else for

As a coach, I’m a fan of plain speaking. I find that convoluted conversation can get in the way of clarity and increase pressure within people. So let’s be real and simple and clear. If I was you, here’s what I would hire me to help you with, and what I wouldn’t.

– MARA, NEW MANAGER

Business coaching London

Your business will thrive or fail based on your personal performance; self-confidence, self-esteem, negative thoughts and negative self-talk can reduce your chances of success, with a generally negative mindset where you see yourself failing holding you back significantly. Wellbeing is key too, with overwhelm and workplace stress resulting in a massive reduction in productivity due to time off, headaches and eventually illness.

What’s your vision and goal?

A key element of business success is being clear about your goal. What are you really looking for? What would you like your days to be like in 10 years? Are you in an office with 30 employees, or are you sat on a beach with a cool drink while your virtual assistants run your outfit?

Once we know your vision, we can work out a path to that by looking back and working out how you got there.

I can help you develop this vision and path.

Who do you have to become?

In order to arrive at your goal, who were you? Were you a confident person with a confident team and a confident mindset? Did you suffer from a confident crisis, or did you have a confidence boost? Did you engage in any public speaking? What new things did you learn? What skills did you develop? How did you handle each stressful situation that came up?

Did you have a senior role or management role in your business, or did you hire someone for that? What were your tasks on a daily basis? Which ones did you enjoy? How did you handle your colleagues?

Did you banish your negative self-talk? How was your happiness level? Were you relaxed and smiley at work, or stoic and serious?

I can help you become this person, in order to achieve your goal.

What decisions do you have to make?

What did your workplace look like? Were you at home? When you were at work, what tools or systems did you have in place? Did you spend on sales, marketing and equipment? How much? Which tasks did you outsource?

I can help you make the clear decisions on what you need to move forward.

What options do you have today?

Once you have your vision, we can look at  building a plan which is at the right pace for you and ensure you’re energised and excited about the future you’re building.

I can help you develop and remain accountable to the plan.

What’s important right now?

If you’re comfortable being constructively challenged, there’s every reason to believe that you can and will overcome the mindset that’s holding you back and will build the success that you desire.

Executive coaching London

The business you work for will thrive if you are working effectively, with senior leaders being an important conduit between employees and the directors / CXO’s. Effective leadership is key, as are strong strategy skills. Successful coaching can help you build the emotional intelligence and communication skills needed, as well as develop a leadership style that will maintain productivity and connection within the company.

Improved strategic thinking

There are days when you’re not sure of the way forward. A professional coach can help a senior executive to evaluate the paths available, and work to identify the fallacies in thinking which might cause plans and goals to fail.

I can help you discover your strategy.

Develop a leadership style

Effective leaders understand that the tools they have to understand the persons they are managing will be key to the satisfaction of those individuals. In each coaching session I can help you to understand people and their drivers, in order to build rapport and become a senior leader within your organisation. 

I can help you to discover a leadership style that suits both you and the culture of your organisation.

Personal development

We all have challenges; it’s human to admit these. However, business problems are really personal problems, and understanding how you function as a human can help you to make decisions that will help you discover a new and more successful path to interacting with the world around you.

I can help you understand yourself and those around you.

Improved team productivity

Organisations are competing with an ever wider group, with the internet, social media, ads and online video calling having made it easier to access new customers from around the world. Productivity is key then, and lost hours are costly. A coaching programme can help to identify difficulties within the team and create solutions.

I can help you improve your teams productivity.  

Increase your confidence in work

Let’s get this out on the table. You’re here because you lack confidence in your ability to achieve some tasks. That’s fine. There’s no shame here, only growth and learning.

So let’s start to fix this for you!

INCREASE CONFIDENCE

I'm a business coach

Hi! I’m Phil. I’ve grown an online business from nothing to 22 employees. Believe me, there’ve been days when I thought “I can’t do this”. In those moments, I felt my lack of confidence. I’ve had periods where it was incredibly challenging to move forwards, but I did find a way. I’d like to help you find the same, whether you’re a fellow business owner or you work for someone else.

I’m now a business coach who has also trained as a psychotherapist. My approach is to look at your feelings, respect them, while giving you some clear strategies and tools to move forward at a pace which is sustainable.

3 facts about confidence

01

01

Confidence vs. self-confidence

Confidence is when you’re certain you’ll get a good outcome based on prior experience of a task, whereas Self-Confidence is an indentity, where you believe you’ll succeed even if you don’t know how to achieve it yet.

01

You can increase self-confidence

To move towards self-confidence and away from a negative indentity, refrain from saying to yourself and others “I lack confidence”. Instead it’s more accurate to say “I currently lack a strategy to achieve X with certainty”. You’re welcome 🙌

03

You only have to gain confidence once

Confidence can feel tricky to gain, but once you have it, it’s hard to dislodge. You’re still confident about crossing a road, right? Unless you experience a significant negative event, your confidence will remain in place.

“If you had more self-confidence, what would you choose to do with it?”
