Coaching Tools


Having worked with Adrian for 12 months he transformed my leadership and outlook on myself through his coaching and approach. From the initial meeting, Adrian wanted to know about me, my journey in teaching, the barriers I was faced with and the things I had achieved in my career. He developed confidence in me as a person, not just me the teacher and the senior leader. Adrian believed in me and gave me the wings to fly!

Assistant Headteacher

Adrian has been a tremendous help at working with me to identify areas for growth in my personal and professional life. Using the information, he has given me I feel more aligned in the work I am doing to reach my goals because I have a better understanding of who I am and how to get the best out of me. The work we have done and continue to do is optimising my life and amplifying my growth in the areas that matter to me personally, professionally and in business so I highly recommend Adrian and his services for anyone that wants to move their life beyond where they are now and the comfort of the what they think they know.
