Peak performance

Coaching for individual performance, career issues and skills development has always been a major part of my work. I tend to be interventionist – offering expertise and a range of options to individuals to help them develop at as fast a pace as practical. Results are seen in tangible actions such as career moves, promotions and increased skills.

My coaching philosophy is to focus on the individual and their unique approach to work and life. Coaching is about helping them achieve their own potential through their innate wisdom and knowledge, recognising that they can choose to do so or not.

I use psychometrics such as the MBTI, Elements and my own questionnaires to help them understand themselves in comparison with others. Essentially the process is to focus on their goals – what they want to happen – and then establish their strengths before we move on to development needs and specific action steps. Empathy

and understanding are critical and these are qualities I possess.

Besides one to one coaching I work with Business Challenge Groups (Action Learning) with 5- 7 people. In these groups people discuss their business challenges and learn from coaching each other and from specific learning targeted for their own development needs.

Focus is on  individuals

Ralph has an effortless warmth which draws people to him. This inspires great loyalty among his colleagues and also has a profound effect in his work with groups. He has a quiet conviction in what he does, and a generosity of spirit which makes him inspiring as a coach and as a colleague.
