Managers drive the organisation; they maximise efficiency and effectiveness to reach organisational goals; they make things happen.
Whether addressing specific workplace issues, improving team communication and collaboration, implementing organisational change or further developing leadership and people management skills, coaching provides a supportive yet challenging environment in which to discuss and identify your best way forward and achieve personal growth.
Coaching provides managers with a chance to step off the hamster wheel, reflect on the challenges they face and take time out to formulate their plan of attack.
Our approach to executive coaching starts with an initial chemistry meeting, to explore your goals and ensure that we can work effectively together. All 1 to 1 programmes are then designed and tailored to address individual requirements.
Our tailored executive coaching programmes for managers provide a confidential sounding board for reviewing sensitive issues such as stakeholder communication challenges, people management, your own leadership style and teamwork issues.

A one day workshop to equip you with the mindset and skillset to handle conversations where either the topic may be sensitive or the individual personally challenging for you. This skills workshop focuses on assertive mindset and behaviours, taking a respectful approach to tough conversations, challenging individuals and awkward situations. It will help managers enter these interactions with a more confident, practical and mindful approach.
Throughout our working lives, we’ll all have workplace conversations that we know we will find challenging. There are some that we actually dread - whether that’s due to the subject we need to discuss with someone or that we find the individual themselves difficult to handle. But we also have to recognise that avoiding these conversations will only create greater issues to tackle further down the line…
This one day skills workshop will help managers review and refocus their communication approach, drawing on their strengths as communicators and developing a strategic communication plan for their team.
Skilful leaders make sure they’re getting the right message across, at the right time, to the right people, in the right place, in the right way.
“I cannot rate Marie’s DISC workshop highly enough. Marie made the session fun, interactive and interesting, all of the team thoroughly enjoyed the day and was a talking point within the team weeks after the session. Everyone was provided with an extremely detailed DISC profile and Marie provided a full explanation of each section of the report, interspersed with interactive activities to help with the understanding and how it translates in real life situations. The session helped the team understand themselves and each other better, which has resulted in improving communication and team morale. I will definitely be using Marie again for other team development sessions.”
“I thoroughly enjoyed the DiSC workshop. I think the biggest shock is getting your results. The more you look into the findings the more you realise how close to reality it is. You have to be fully truthful when answering the questions to start and also be in the ‘correct’ frame of mind to make sure you answer everything as you would day to day.Marie makes the results finding session fun and interactive.”
"Attending the “Everything DISC workshop” was very beneficial to me and my team. A fun yet informative workshop that gave great insight into the various characteristics that make up our diverse team. We have often referred to our individual profiles and traits in meetings and scenarios and it has benefited me personally when working with new peer groups."
"I recently attended a DISC workshop hosted by Marie as part of our management development training which I have been running in order to understand our leaders’ styles. The course was very interesting and revealed a range of styles; some of which were most surprising! I would highly recommend Marie who delivers the training in a fun, inclusive and humorous way. All of the managers on the course got something from the day."
"Marie delivered an Everything DiSC workshop to our UK Sales Team during the pandemic period. The workshop came at the perfect time during a challenging period and assisted us in strengthening our skills to face new challenges which could lie ahead. The material and delivery of the workshop was of high calibre and Marie put everyone at ease throughout. The workshop created a strong team unity as we developed an understanding of the different personality types, alongside a deep learning of our own behaviour. Individuals have built a level of self-awareness and accepted the positives of their DiSC type. These skills have enabled us to build positive relationships both internally and externally leading to higher performance. Everyone left the workshop enthused and have continued to use the new skills personally and professionally. Overall, we owe a lot to this workshop, and I would recommend it to all teams regardless of size."
