The subtle art of convincing your boss they need coaching

Suggesting executive coaching to a C-suite leader is undoubtedly a delicate process. When approached thoughtfully and professionally, this conversation can mark the beginning of a transformative journey, benefiting not just the leader but the entire organisation.

Compassion fatigue

The importance of compassion fatigue awareness for leaders 

Compassion fatigue can have a significant impact on a leader’s effectiveness and well-being, as it can hinder their ability to provide support and make sound decisions. While caring for employees is crucial, leaders should also establish and maintain healthy boundaries.


As a leader, how are your people getting ‘up the hill’? 

The art of leadership lies in knowing when to push, pull (hopefully not having to drag), or let your team members climb the hill themselves. Your role as a leader is not one-size-fits-all, and success often hinges on your ability to adapt and tailor your approach to the unique needs of your team.


Do you know how your team members are really feeling? 

One of the most important roles for any leader is to build trust and psychological safety, and to foster an environment where team members feel safe and confident to share their thoughts and feelings without fear of judgment or reprisal.
