Coaching for Leaders
Leading is a lonely job.
Once you take the decision to lead, you are deciding to pull away from the pack, to be different and therefore you must rely more on your inner resilience as you navigate through decisions few have had to make before.
You need self-belief to keep going without consistent external evidence that can be so reassuring.
Sometimes that self-belief seems short in supply.
A lot of the time it feels uncomfortable to be different, to hold one’s own when the decisions are not particularly popular or expected, to stay the course despite objections.
Having access to an objective ear who will listen without judgement, is one of the key ingredients needed to sustain momentum; and avoid any temptation to second-guess yourself or lose focus on your original purpose.
I provide that listening ear.
I hold you accountable, so you see the progress you are making, and stay true to your “north star” – the vision/purpose that made you a leader in the first place.
I’m by your side when unhelpful thoughts sneak up trying to tell you: your goals are too difficult; you are unable to cope; investing in self-care can wait; or, that you are undeserving of the trust placed in you to lead…
I help you turn your sub-conscious into your super-power. And I do this by helping you live as the real you.
My background prior to becoming a coach was consulting.
I’ve worked with some of the largest consulting firms in the world and I have also run my own consulting business.
I get the practical aspects of running and scaling a business.
However, I also understand what a PROFOUND impact leaders’ mindsets and attitudes can have on business culture and therefore overall performance.
Working with me, you get business strategy expertise, combined with a route to tackling the “intangible” aspects that make all the difference for organisations determined to remain purpose led.
I believe all business leaders should have a coach – someone with whom you have chemistry, someone who will help you hear yourself clearly and someone who will support your sustained progress as you and your business evolve.
You can find out whether our chemistry works by booking a call.
I look forward to speaking soon.

Free initial online session
I invest time to build a relationship with you. This way you and I can both determine whether / how we can best work together.
During the conversations it will take to build that relationship and come to a decision, I expect to add value to your thinking by challenging you and pushing you to start the change you want to see. These conversations are complimentary.
When we are both sure it makes sense to work together, we will tailor a package that makes sense from both perspectives.
If you are ready to start exploring, book a call and let’s see where things go.
When I work
I am a complete convert to the power of coaching, and I work with two coaches regularly to keep learning and improving. That said, I am still amazed at how much value I get out of each and every session.
I come from a consulting background, and I have worked with business owners ranging from early start-ups to medium sized companies turning over 10s of millions. In addition, I have run multimillion £ programmes for global corporations and worked with clients and suppliers across all the continents. I thoroughly enjoy the rational side of business – strategy models, finance projections, standard operating procedures, etc…
However, I find coaching to be even more rewarding than consulting.
Coaching provides me with the opportunity to touch more than “rational” or “technical” aspects of a business – I get to touch the very soul of the business as I work with the hopes & fears & feelings of its leaders.
I am privileged to have the opportunity to do this type of work.
What people say about working with me:
- I had not realised I was the one holding myself back. Ola and I talked about what I was scared of (losing money) and as we talked, I could see why my fears were not valid. She also gave me tools to understand my pricing better. I have now taken on a new distribution partner and two new members of staff. T. I. Kent
- Ola helped me understand how my perfectionism was stopping me from growing my team. Together we talked through how I would assess new tutors based upon values that I knew would ensure they gave my pupils the best support possible. I have since added 6 more tutors to my team and we now work as far as London. K. M. Essex
- I was getting frustrated as I felt the other partners in my firm were not pulling their weight. Talking with Ola allowed me to see options for redesigning the partnership. Ironically the partnership changes I instigated created attitude changes from my partners and now we are all winners. S.C. Harrow.
