Our Mission

We have always done things differently because we believe a business can grow and thrive but still operate with empathy, fairness, and responsibility. Our mission is to support our clients as they progress toward being equitable workplaces. We partner with them to help them create a fairer and more sustainable environment for all, and we do this using coaching as an enabler for change. And we love what we do, because we take pride in the growth and development of each individual we support.

Our Story

We started in the 90s as a small, innovative, female-founded leadership coaching consultancy. We have become one of the largest independent coaching and leadership firms globally. Our coaches are often cited by our clients as best to work with in the industry. And we have been coaching leaders and executives for over two decades. Ten years ago, we realised that coaching was also part of the solution to gender inequality. Now our coaching-based programmes in women’s development, supporting parental transition and inclusive leadership help shift the needle.

“The six sessions I had with my ECC Coach changed my perspective of coaching. I was initially uncertain (and possibly sceptical) about the benefits of coaching but my coach read me very well and knew when to coax a response out from me by being encouraging and when to firmly push me to see the benefits of reframing some of my previously held positions.”

Head of Legal, International Property Group

“Both from my personal experience of ECC’s approach, and from seeing the impact on our company I can particularly recommend their pragmatic approach and their insight into our collective and individual needs.”

Senior Leader, Commercial Property Management and Investment Company

“The team is a pleasure to work with, consistently bringing expert advice and guidance, energy and professionalism to the partnership.”

Diversity and Inclusion Executive, Multinational Investment Bank

“The coaches at ECC are commercial, pragmatic and highly focused. The coaching they provide on an individual basis has given valuable insight and helped our senior executives to gain greater perspective in terms of managing relationships, prioritising, strategic thinking, influencing and confidence.”

Senior Leader, Multinational Retailing Company

“I found my ECC coaching sessions incredibly valuable – for the unique and necessary space I was seeking as a sole proprietor to feel heard, understood and connected to a peer in business. My coaching experience provided a safe space where I could be the real me, and provided a relationship I could truly trust. Thank you ECC.”
