If leadership is service, and we believe it is, then we serve leaders.
We help individuals and teams to think about their culture; what it is; what they want it to be and how to get there.
"Culture is the behaviours we tolerate"
We believe that high performance culture is made up of:
Purpose: Our reason for being, the story we tell about ourselves.
Safety: Creating belonging and the freedom to speak and act without fear.
Vulnerability: Being able to ask for and get the help we need.
Across our associates we have years of experience working directly with people in the seemingly mundane and at times extreme circumstances of life. We believe we have a unique ability to compassionately ‘hold the space’ for individuals and teams to drive meaningful change and improve culture in a way that impacts directly on people's lives and on the performance of a company.

"From my first contact with Andrew I had a sense that his background and experience could add value to me and my work. That sense has been confirmed. As a coach he stands out from the crowd, he consistently asks questions that provide insights, growth and have lead to significant change."
Christina Brooks, Founder and CEO, Ruebik
'As a leader that champions inclusion I deliberately seek out difference and I couldn't have been more drawn in by Andrew's rich and diverse experiences prior to becoming a Coach. I met Andrew at the inception of my business and this proved to be a transformational experience. Andrew brings a kinesthetic lens to each session gleaning deeper insight into what is being felt instead of solely what is being said. With this approach we were able to tackle deep rooted perceptions and self beliefs I carried which no longer served me. This completely shifted my paradigm and I will always have Andrew to thank for this.'
Kelly Bradley, Head of Global Accounts, Sponge Ltd.
I found myself rapidly moving into a leadership role, with a new team and strategy to implement at pace. At the same time, questioning my ability and feeling disconnected to the corporate environment. Andrew was recommended as a coach, to support the transition.
During our coaching sessions we explored multiple topics and scenarios and through Andrews deep questioning and prompts I was able to reach conclusions and bring more awareness to interactions with my team which have directly influenced team culture. Andrew provided opportunity to reframe situations and thoughts and helped me to find the space to reconnect with my core values. These values now act as an anchor when faced with challenging decisions both personally and in my career.
I would strongly recommend Andrew as a coach to anyone facing a similar transition who is seeking space to reflect and importantly opportunity to make insights actionable in there career.
Joanna Macleod, Group COO IQ-EQ
“I have been working with Andrew over the past twelve months during a significant role change personally and large scale changes across the company. Coaching sessions with Andrew are considered, challenging and ensure items are addressed at a deeper level. I have found his coaching style unique and his insights hugely valuable. I would highly recommend Andrew. He is very professional and focussed on holistic outcomes and results.”
Brendan McCafferty, Chair, National Employment Savings Trust (NEST).
“Andrew brings a perceptive take on what’s going on with people. His ability to see through the city veneer and look at the realities is unusual and helpful. A quality of listening and words of both comfort and provocation mean he gets results. He can help people get to where they belong.”
James Poole, MD Agile Risk Solutions
“Andrew is a fantastic listener. He helps me to frame my consideration of the things that are within my control, and my responses for those that are not; and he has been a hugely useful sounding-board for me in my fundraising & start-up process over the recent months.”
Professor Sarah Cartmell, Head of Department of Materials, The University of Manchester
“I was very impressed at Andrews training when I first met him as my group facilitator in an emerging strategic leadership workshop. As a result I have since asked for him to deliver training to a group of 30 PhD students that I direct at The University of Manchester. Andrew quickly gained the trust and respect of my colleagues and students in the event. He skilfully led sessions on values and leadership skills in our away day, leaving our group wiser and more resilient as a result. He has a calm, confident and, when appropriate, a humour injected manner that engaged all of our delegates. I have no hesitation in recommending Andrew for leadership training and facilitation – we will certainly be looking forward to working with him again.”
Damian O’Reilly MBE, Police Inspector (Retired), Founder Mike November Clothing
“Andrew has an exceptional skill in being able to connect with people from every walk of life from hard core gang members to captains of industry. His calming influence and ability to negotiate in the most difficult of circumstances have been instrumental in bringing peaceful resolutions to hostile situations.”
