There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial and error and experimentation. The ‘failed’ experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiment that ultimately ‘works’.”


Psychological and competency assessment are used in the coaching process

Leadership Coaching & Development

Psychological and competency assessment are used in the coaching process where this is necessary and appropriate.   All assessments are custom designed to suit your specific context and circumstances. Where appropriate your organisational strategy is incorporated into the assessment process.

Feedback on assessment will be provided in regard to your own personal strengths and areas for development, which should suggest the direction of your future development.

The assessment and coaching involves various coaching exercises, designed to provide relevant information and insights.

During the process, you will receive:

  • Advice and guidance on achieving your potential, suitable career pathways, and options to pursue.
  • Advice on leadership development options, formal studies, informal studies, and other options which will support leadership development.
  • Guidance on dealing with problematic situations in business.

360 degree assessment is available, given the co-operation of your organisation.
