Executive Coaching

“All organizations are perfectly designed to get the results they are now getting. If we want different results, we must change the way we do things.”
Tom Northup

The ability to get the best out of your team is often overlooked, as is creating the right culture but the facts are that businesses that get this right simply are more successful.

Kit and his team of carefully pre-selected coaches specialise in working with Founders, CEOs and entrepreneurs of SMEs at the many different stages of their careers.

We are expert at supporting you as you build your businesses and adept at challenging you to focus your attentions in the most productive way to ensure success for that stage of the business development.

As a business grows so priorities change and we are on hand to point these out.

Investing in leaders has a ripple affect that can be enormous.

We help you achieve this.

The Hero Process

What Is It?

A bespoke year long programme, that supports businesses in a pro-active way to create the right leadership and culture as their business grows. This enables founders and business leaders to create the business in their own vision whilst ensuring that they do not fall into the usual traps and, at the same time, reduce stress and maintain a sensible life work balance.


The HERO process is a framework that is designed to support a business for a whole year (and sometimes longer). We are therefore able to measure achievements over a sensible length of time and also to ensure that the coaching methodologies and practices are properly embedded in the organisation leading to sustainable and measurable growth rather than an unsustainable ‘quick fix’ solution.

The HERO process has been designed to ensure that each and every element of the process can be created in a bespoke way for the business rather than a one formula fits all approach. As a result, we can co- create the programme that adds most value to YOUR business.
