Obi James

London, UK

I coach mid- and senior-level professionals in the corporate sector (predominantly financial services), helping them to position their personal brand, successfully navigate their networks and expand career possibilities.

My coaching approach draws from:

a) Latest findings in the field of neuroscience to create an understanding of how coaching impacts neuroplasticity and helps build the psychological skills needed to support lasting change.

b) Systemic Thinking to help senior professionals, executives and business leaders to look beyond individual development to find solutions which also benefit the wider systems they're part of.

c) My strong corporate experience in senior leadership and organisational development roles within large multinational organisations. This means my coaching approach is tailored to factor in pressures and constraints that come with leadership responsibility in these organisations.

Leigh Jackson

London/Greater London (face to face coaching); rest of UK and world-wide (via Skype/Facetime).

My particular interest is in providing career and leadership coaching to introverts and "quiet" people who often find it difficult to be seen and heard in corporate environments. I have a corporate communications background, so I really enjoy supporting my clients to find their authentic voice, to develop their personal brand and to communicate with impact and confidence. I often work with people in the high-tech industries - that's also part of my background.

My clients tell me my coaching style is exhilarating, motivating and supportive! They get fired up and inspired as a consequence. When appropriate, I like to bring energy to a session and to support my clients in moving forward and taking action in their careers and in their communication styles. As a CTI co-active coach, however, I also like to be "in the moment" with my clients when required.

Maria Smart

London, Surrey, Sussex

I work with people who find themselves at transition points in their careers. This includes exploring career direction and supporting managers and leaders to develop their management, leadership and business skills so they can progress in their chosen career.  While the backgrounds and career paths may vary the golden thread is they all want to be fulfilled in their work and are committed to making a change.
I work with:
• People seeking to explore a change in career direction
• First time managers
• People who have stepped from management into a leadership position
• People wanting to develop key skills
I am passionate about helping others realise their potential, develop and succeed in their chosen career, afterall we spend too much time at work not to be happy.

Britta Siggelkow

London

As a career and personal development coach I help mid-career professionals to create the working life they really want.

Both my personal and working life experience – including 20 years professional experience as architect (employed & self employed) in 3 different countries and transition to professional coaching at mid-career – provide me with a great understanding of the challenges that mid-career professionals face and allow me to bring empathy, perspective and practical insights to my coaching when supporting my clients on their own journeys of exploring career options and possible transitions.

My coaching style is warm, facilitative, reflective and goal orientated.

My clients say:

“Britta's coaching style is gentle yet firm and she has exceptional reflective listening skills which made me feel safe and supported.”

“Britta is very calm and an excellent listener. Her reflections helped me to move my project along and leave me feeling like progress was being lead by me.”

Marie-Louise Pereira

France

I help individuals between thirty - fifty free themselves from a stressful work environment and find a meaningful and passion driven job that leads them to more serenity.
My clients gain more confidence and self-esteem in their capabilities, strengths, competencies, personal values...

I use the Co-Active model (co-creation with the DOING and the BEING) and use mindset strategies that help clients to move forward faster. I also work with the body as a tool (feelings, emotions...) to uncover their truth.

 

Anne De Smet

Leuven (Brussels area), Belgium

I have all types of clients from all kinds of professions and this makes it very rich and interesting for me.
In my previous life I have been an entrepreneur with a company specialised in the organisation of international scientific conferences and meetings. This means I have experience with this sector. Having been a business owner for 20 years now, I'm also well placed to coach people who envisage to start their own business or work for themselves.

Clients tell me I have soft power, I'm a warm, honest and open, combined with an edge of seriousness when needed and absolute determination and focus. I'm often complimented for my energy and commitment. See the section 'praise' on my website for testimonials http://momentum-coaching.eu/en/praise/

I have a blog/newsletter which appears every 2 weeks on Thursday. It can be found on my website under 'Inspiration'

Angie Fresch

Chicago

I work with professionals in their 30s, 40s and 50s to reinvent their careers into something they love.

When clients come to me, they say things like "I'm successful at what I do, but it's never really felt like 'me', or "I've always felt like a bit of an 'imposter' at work, and I'm worn out." I also work with women with young families who say "I'm ready for something for me again." They are ready for a change, after having taken a career break to focus on family. However, the career they had before having a family is no longer a good fit for their lives.

Gareth Banner

Based in Surrey, UK. I work with London based as well as UK and worldwide clients via Skype.

I coach across the management spectrum and enjoy engaging with those in line for promotion or who have just been promoted. I have coached senior leaders in schools.

With many year's experience of Government service and having navigated my way through career transition, I have a deep interest in helping and supporting all individuals leaving the Armed Forces, Police, Civil Service and other uniformed services.

I am interested in personal and professional career development and change. My style is authentic, engaging, non-judgemental and totally supportive. With a focus entirely on the individual, I will encourage but also challenge appropriately when it is needed. My interest is my clients' interest.
