A Relationship approach to coaching

A relationship approach is well suited to developing the leadership practices which our complex, fast and growing world needs more of today and in the future.


The key principle is that learning always happens through your relationships with others or to the situation. We are interdependent and not isolated. The capabilites that the world needs cannot be learnt in a text book or online, they involve the experience of looking inwards to ourselves and looking outwards to others and the situation.


Change is all around us and within us. Sometimes it's subtle and on other occasions there is no escaping it. Understanding who we are in relation to others, to the situation, to the environment creates a rich learning experience that supports us through the uncertainty of change and transition.

Leadership Coaching


Together we create a coaching relationship to grow your authentic leadership capability and improve your capacity to live with uncertainty and develop receptivity and connectedness with others.


Coaching is 1~2~1 and typically held over 6-9 months.

Group Dynamics


The relationships in Groups can be highly complex. Whatever the size or nature of the group, there is always the opportunity to learn about yourself and develop individual and collective leadership practices through your relationships with others. 


If there is a specific change or development plan for the group, then running an Action Learning Group might suit you; or if you're a group/team forming or getting a new leader or team players, turn to Group Dynamics to support your individual and collective performance, growth and well-being.

Relationship Coaching


Change happens at the learning edge of different opinions and perspectives, but too often we prefer the safety and speed that commonality brings. Experience the change and learning that happens when difference is allowed to flourish, and not be diminished.


Ideal for small business partnerships just forming or about to go through significant change; and for manager/ sub-ordinate relationships needing more alignment.
