Coaching for Leeds businesses improves performance.

I am a business owner with over 20 employees, therefore I am well aware of the difficulties in identifying the next step-change or breaking through a growth plateau. However, the way may not appear to be plain or may be tough. That’s why you might notice yourself repeating patterns. Despite the fact that I am not a trainer, my business experience can benefit you immediately.

A clear vision

According to research, the clarity of your vision has an impact on how quickly and easy you attain it. When you connect yourself to a vision, you’re more likely to achieve it because our minds’ Reticular Activating System prefers to focus on opportunities related to what we set our sights on.

Improved business plans

A dream is defined as achieving a goal without a clear path to follow. Once you have a vision, it is more productive to move backwards from there to address the issues and difficulties you may experience along the road. However, because no plan is ever perfect, it’s best to set detailed goals that last longer than three months. A business coach can assist you in evaluating your present plans and developing new ones.

Peer into challenges with an open mind

Senior executives in Leeds experience stress-inducing issues in the workplace, such as being overwhelmed by various goals, suffering with personality flaws that make teamwork difficult, and feeling pressurised by company ambitions. This can be aggravating and perplexing. Coaching can assist them in taking a step back and evaluating choices from a different perspective in order to identify solutions.

Personal growth and development

We all have behavioural patterns that we follow on a regular basis. You utilise these tactics to meet your requirements, but some of them aren’t working for you anymore, and they’re the reason you’re not getting what you want. By scrutinising your thinking and assessing new possibilities that serve you, coaching can assist you in uncovering these tendencies.

Business coaching puts you in the driver's seat while I serve as a passenger, allowing you to make the final decisions. I may occasionally suggest a method that would be helpful, but ultimately the decision is yours.

When circumstances are tough, a business coach can offer encouragement and support.

With the correct coaching support, Leeds company leaders may expand their horizons and achieve success in ways they never imagined possible. They can find new and more successful directions with the guidance of a professional.

“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.”

Meet Phil Drinkwater

With an analytical mind from programming, training in psychology, business experience to owner level, marketing and creative roles and a keen eye for what people are truly experiencing, I use all of my skills to help you and your business grow.


With a decade working from junior staff to senior manager, I understand the challenges and pressures of working at all levels within an organisation.


After seeing an opportunity to use managerial, technical, graphical and marketing skills, in partnership I grew an online business to 20 staff.


My wealth of business experience, analytical mind, prior training in psychology and love of helping others to grow drew me to business coaching.

Rather than feeling bad about not finishing tasks, accountability to a business coach is about understanding and learning from them and finding new successful ways to go forward.

Business coaching with a huge impact

Focus on you

Business coaching focuses on identifying and overcoming your unique business difficulties in Leeds. I’m here to assist you in achieving greater success, whatever that means to you, regardless of whether it’s just in your business, or in your personal life too. A business or executive coach’s goal is always to assist you in achieving your vision. Coaching is defined by straightforward communication and honesty on both sides.

Your current situation and your long-term objectives

You may want more time as a business owner or manager to focus on strategic priorities. You might also desire to enhance your profits. Perhaps you’d like to gain a deeper understanding of marketing strategies or sales goals. Perhaps you want to improve your leadership skills. Coaching may help a company save money, raise morale, and increase productivity by recognising and fixing problems.

Take action and evaluate the outcomes

We will experience hurdles when we take significant strides into unknown territory. You would have gotten “there” by now if it had been simple. We regularly leave our comfort zones by taking a new step, and a coach’s talent is spotting these challenging steps and offering the necessary support for personal progress or pacing.

Between weekly and monthly video calls

Video conferencing allows business coaching to take place anywhere in the world. Sessions last an hour and are scheduled once to four times a month, depending on your needs. Because coaching is a long-term intervention, it’s best to avoid meeting too often.
