Coaching and Training

Alan has worked in Executive Coaching and Leadership Development since 1999. Prior to this, he held a number of senior managerial positions and has had a life-long interest in ‘people at work’ and how they succeed and achieve.

He describes his approach as ‘Coaching in Context’, enabling clients to overcome barriers and enhance potential in a systemic way i.e. at individual, team and organisational levels. Alan holds a Gold Award from the Management Consultancies Association for his coaching work.

Alan uses a range of approaches developed from learning theory, psychology, psychotherapy and personality theory. This is merged with expertise developed from his hard-won front line experience.
