Once used to bolster troubled staffers, coaching now is part of the standard leadership development training for elite executives and talented up-and-comers at IBM, Motorola, J.P. Morgan, Chase, and Hewlett Packard. These companies are discreetly giving their best prospects what star athletes have long had: a trusted adviser to help reach their goals.

Executive coaching is now seen by organisations and MBA training programmes as a key aspect of developing talent and leadership ability. I work with clients varying from entrepreneurs, to managers, to C-suite level and direct senior leadership to help them to explore challenges and to develop core skills and self-awareness. Simply put, I accompany them to achieve their potential. Executives may work with me independently or as part of a coaching support offered by the company.
