Simon is an active listener with a calm demeanour and deep respect for his clients as individuals.
He invites his clients to reflect on their personal journey, their values, where they see themselves, in their role, relationships and organisation … as well as their challenges and fears for the future. Through the dialogue, Simon supports his clients to increase their self-awareness, to rediscover hidden strengths, to find their way with confidence through career transitions and to adapt to what is new or changing.
The ambition is to thrive, not just cope, and to create value within their organisations.
Simon’s coaching clients include leaders and executives within: wealth management, banking, healthcare, publishing, entertainment, early stage Venture Capital-backed businesses and founder/entrepreneurs.
"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
