What is Executive Coaching?

Executive coaching is providing tailored, 1-2-1 support for any individual. This can be done face to face, or over the phone in 1 hour sessions. We will listen to you, and help you develop yourself and your skills.

The aim of the coaching is to help you focus on what is important to you.  To support you, stretch and challenge you, encourage and inspire you to focus on your goals and achieve more than you ever believed possible.

Client Feedback

“I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I’m very pleased I had this coaching.  Cathy was part coach and part therapist.  She helped me put my issues into perspective, take ownership for my actions (or inaction), and understand what was not in my control.  She really helped me and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to others.”

Emily McLaughlin

“The executive coaching sessions help me think about staff management issues ordinarily I would not take the time to consider.  It’s a time for me to stop and focus on aspects of colleagues’ and my own work that are more subtle.  This is particularly the case when it comes to motivating staff and bringing the best out in my team members.  The sessions help me grow and develop as a manager and constantly remind me that people work at their best when they feel good about themselves and their work.”

Stefanie Sahmel

“The executive coaching from Cathy is giving me the opportunity to develop an organisation that cares for its people. I feel she understands the influence people have on a business much better than most and as a result she is able to translate this into practical information. With her continuing help, I am sure that I can build a company which is superior in productivity and profitability.”

Cathy Busani

As an Executive Coach with over 12 years’ experience (I have coached people from Board Level downwards across all sectors), everything I do is about unlocking a person’s talent and potential, enabling them to gain more self-awareness, credibility and authenticity.  I do this through a combination of empathy, support and challenge.  With a strong focus on practical concrete actions, I adapt my style to the individual, thereby ensuring their ongoing success.
