One-to-One Coaching

We are members of The Association for Coaching® and value the importance of best practice in coaching ethics.

We believe you have everything you need to be successful. Our role as your coach is to facilitate your learning through a personalised programme of one-to-one sessions building your skills, techniques and awareness for you to identify and achieve what you really want.

Video coaching sessions are an excellent way of developing leadership skills, overcoming fears and barriers and improving personal performance.

A typical programme will run for 5 sessions over a period of about 6 months. Each session will be approximately 90 minutes. In between sessions you will be able to contact us for support and updates on your progress.

What can we help with...?

Positivity in challenging times

We know it can be hard to keep that smile going when the world is changing rapidly around you. We also know that there are proven strategies you can use to maintain your positivity and we are ready to share them with you in simple, user-friendly terms that really work for you.

Communicating with impact

In your unique and privileged position you see, hear and experience what’s happening in your organisation. You are therefore the best person to put forward ideas, suggestions and proposals to positively impact your team and organisation. We will share with you how to communicate your proposals so they are delivered with real impact.

Maintaining energy & focus

As the “go to” person in your organisation and with so many of your team depending on you, first and foremost it’s important to look after yourself. Maintaining your energy and focus is key to you being the most effective and efficient. We will share instantly-useable strategies with you that will have an immediate positive impact.

Prioritising your workload

When you get to the end of your day and feel like you’ve been constantly “fire fighting” it’s time to take control of your workload. We will help you to differentiate between urgent and important tasks and to use your time more effectively so you are focusing on the things that add the most value to your team and organisation.

Managing remote teams

When your teams are working remotely you may struggle to monitor and control what you cannot see. Together we’ll identify the tools and techniques for leading and managing your staff across multiple locations.

Making tough decisions

One of the hardest aspects of being a leader is making the tough decisions and communicating them to those who are impacted. We can help you with your decision making and prepare you for those challenging conversations.

Lindsay Taylor

Lindsay believes that PAs are some of the most unsung heroes in any organisation. She should know, having spent 10 years as a PA/EA to high profile CEOs in transatlantic organisations like Transamerica Corporation. She has organised major international conferences and events and led large teams of administrative and secretarial staff, so fully understands what a great PA looks like. That’s why she is passionate about raising the profile of PAs and EAs so that they receive the kudos and recognition they deserve.

Lindsay wanted to develop her skills to give something back, so retrained as a Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) Coach. NLP is the practice of understanding how people think, feel, react to situations and use language to deliver excellent performance. Her training gave her one of those ‘light bulb moments’. The more a PA understands how they tick as an individual and how their Executives and colleagues operate, the more effective and confident they will be. And that’s why she has designed interactive and jargon-free courses that provide everything a PA needs to become an exceptional performer.

Lindsay is the proud author of ‘A-Z Pearls of Wisdom for Executive PAs’, an invaluable resource to help PAs perform at their best and writes regular articles and features for admin magazines and websites including the highly regarded Executive Secretary Magazine

I was fortunate enough to spend some time with Malcolm as I was transitioning into a larger role, Malcolm provided a safe environment to discuss any new experiences and issues that arose through thought provoking discussions. He has a natural ability to get you to a way forward through supporting you in developing your own solutions, using selected tools as appropriate. Without a doubt, these sessions gave me a solid foundation to build on allowing me to transition successfully and make the role my own. As a coach I would personally recommend Malcolm to any of my colleagues.
