Here's my take on coaching:
I think my own style is best illustrated by this email from a client earlier this year (2022):
"Jim is a fantastic coach. He’s incredibly knowledgeable about what motivates you, and takes the time to really listen and understand your concerns.
While he probably knows what is probably bothering you or clogging you from achieving a high level of performance, he walks you through the steps that makes it a process of self-discovery. This is ultimately the most effective way, rather than being told what he thinks is the answer.
I find working with Jim a real pleasure and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone."
I qualified as an NLP Master Practitioner & Coach with one of the leading UK schools in 2004 and have been a member of the International Coaching Federation since then. I also hold an MBA from the Cranfield School of Management, one of the UK's leading business schools.
I also bring 20 years in technical & management roles in aerospace and telecoms technology companies, and since 2001, I have been running an independent coaching and consultancy practice working with Big Six accounting firms, Magic Circle law firms, global market research consultancies and independent niche consultancies.
