What is Executive Coaching?
Coaching is a powerful process for supporting and enabling an individual to maximise their potential and address issues and challenges in the workplace. The role of the coach is as a facilitator, a catalyst providing a structure to support and to challenge the individual to achieve the best results.
We work with leaders and senior managers to build on their strengths as well as to realise their potential. This is not about a ‘quick fix’. The coaching relationship is a challenging one – but ultimately it can be very rewarding for both parties.
The impact of coaching is long-lasting as it is centred on what is important to you, the client, i.e., on those things that are going to make the biggest difference to you and to your performance in your role. Evidence shows that through coaching, clients tackle bigger challenges than before, with more confidence and skill; and achieve better results for themselves and their organisation as a result.

Our highly experienced coaches provide the structure and help to create an environment in which the individual can reflect on their own learning and development. We see the role of the coach as creating a space within which the person being coached can talk about what is on their mind, share insights, come up with alternatives and plan the next steps. The coach is a facilitator of change from within the individual.
“Laura Gordon has a rare combination of honesty and empathy that makes her unique among coaches. I attribute much of my recent success, personal and professional development to my connection to Laura.”
