Do you have untapped leadership potential?
Do you feel ‘executive stress’ - more of the challenges and less of the benefits of leading?
Are you looking to be more strategic, and less focused on the day-to-day detail?
Is your team yet to achieve a reputation for high performance?
If any of these apply to you, I can help. I coach leaders to be successful.
The work of leadership is now more challenging than ever before. Leaders are under great pressure to produce results at a faster pace, with fewer resources and less certainty. Many are overworked, and feel overburdened.
My mission is to change that! My goal is to help leaders to be exceptional. To be leaders everyone wants to work with, who bring out the best in others, and who get great results.
As an Executive Coach, I find it inspiring to coach individually. Group and team coaching can be even more powerful than individual coaching. Leaders who develop their capability and their own coaching style collaboratively with others, magnify the impact of development, double engagement and get twice as much done.
The thing that really lights me up is helping leaders to realise their full potential. I see myself as being like Michelangelo: he saw the angel within the marble and he carved until he set it free. I work with the potential hidden in each leader. I help shape you into the very best version of yourself.
I have extensive experience working with leaders, supporting and guiding their development. Get in touch to find out how you can achieve greater leadership success.
Lead like a coach is a well written and considered book that brings to life practical insights and examples of how even an experienced leader can better connect, engage and bring teams on the journey to unlock their true potential.Michael Schneider
