Independent Support For You, When You Need It.

Leadership can feel lonely. The thing is, leaders need support to perform at their best.

If you feel that you could benefit from an independent coach who can help you see things differently, change your mindset and act as a sounding board to overcome your challenges, I can help.

I don’t offer generic advice because every leader, workplace and team is different. I find out what’s challenging you, what your goals are and develop an understanding of your situation. That’s the best way to achieve lasting results.

I can help you achieve the following:

Improve your confidence at work, and in your leadership capabilities

Improve your productivity and leadership effectiveness

Help you to improve the performance of a low-performing team

Help you to overcome “Analysis Paralysis” – being unable to make a decision

Help you improve accountability and proactiveness in a team

Help you to tackle tough conversations and the big issues in your role.

What Happy Customers Are Saying

“I would definitely recommend this coaching program to new or existing leaders and managers. In particular, Ben’s feedback and coaching session summaries are very useful and helped me immensely to stay on track.”

Bernard N., Operations Manager, Canada

Even though I have been in leadership for a number of years, I was able to take away new strategies not only for myself, but for the leadership around me. I felt like I had constructive items to take away from each session. It was also nice to spend time on self-reflection, which is something that most people don’t regularly prioritize.

Alisha M., Director, Michigan USA

Being new to a manager role, I wasn’t sure whether I was communicating well or dealing with problems effectively. I decided to ask Ben for help with a specific issue I’d been struggling with for weeks.

Ben was recommended to me by a friend of mine. She has benefited several times from Ben coaching her through difficult times at work and I thought I should try it too!

One session with Ben helped me to define 3 easy to follow steps that I tried immediately with my team. The results exceeded my expectations. I continue coaching sessions with Ben as I want to keep improving and it helps to have an independent advisor to bounce my ideas off. Ben’s style is focused on practical solutions that I can put in place quickly and it works!

Karolina S., Manager, Chicago, USA

Ben is an experienced and knowledgeable coach who is professional and highly skilled in leadership coaching. His coaching approach is practical, strategic and effective.

I strongly recommend Ben to anyone who wants to develop their career, to overcome challenges and to achieve results in leadership. I also wanted to mention my achievement from his coaching program: it brought out the best in me, raised my level of confidence, helped me set effective goals and create my career vision in a strategic and practical way.

Karen L., Team Leader, Sydney, Australia

One of my challenges was regarding time management, and I was very pleasantly surprised to find out that this was one of Ben’s strengths. Everything was laid out at the end of each session with clear expectations and the accountability was also there during the following session.

Riley B., Manager, Michigan USA

How My Leadership Coaching Works

I’ll understand Your Situation

Before our first session, you’ll complete a simple form explaining your current situation, including some details of your role, organisation or industry you work in and your current challenges.

This way, I understand more about your situation immediately, rather than needing to spend too much time on the basics.

We’ll Make Sure It’s a Good Fit

Before we start any leadership coaching sessions, we’ll have a 15 – 30 minute introductory discussion, free of charge. There’s no obligation to continue if you or I don’t think it’s a good fit.

I’m not interested in wasting your time or money. I’m interested in helping you improve and achieve your goals.

We’ll Set Goals

It’s important to understand your goals for leadership coaching up front. What do you want to achieve? Without understanding your goals for coaching, it’s impossible to know whether we have succeeded!

Based on the goals you set, I can structure the leadership coaching sessions to best achieve the outcomes you are striving for.

We’ll Connect Wherever You Are

I run most of my leadership coaching sessions using online video-conferencing, so that we can connect from wherever you are. I’m based in Australia. However, I have successfully coached people from all over the world – time differences are not an issue.

This means you can get the support and guidance you need, no matter where your work or life schedule takes you.

It’s a simple approach, and it helps to get the best outcome for you:

How a Typical Leadership Coaching Session Works

Each leadership coaching session runs for up to one hour and is structured in the following way:

  • Last Session Review – if this isn’t your first session, we discuss what has happened since we last met. Did you execute the actions we spoke about? What challenges did you face? Did anything significant change in your situation that we need to address?
  • Goal or outcome for the session – we determine the goal or outcome that you want to achieve from this session. I work with you to set this outcome, but the goal ultimately is decided by you.
  • Explore options and barriers – based on the goal for the session, we discuss options to move you forward to achieving your goal and the difficulties you may encounter.
  • Identify actions and next steps – we work together to determine concrete and specific actions that you will undertake to achieve your goals. We make sure they are realistic and achievable.
  • Check outcomes – you review your key goal from the session and the key actions you are going to take before the next one. We discuss how you feel and what new insights you had as part of the session.
  • Close out and accountability – how are you going to make sure you complete your actions? We discuss how to partner up to make sure you carry out your assigned next steps.
