What makes us who we are



Over the last decade, we have worked with a wide range of different businesses across the UK; they all have continuous improvement and competitive advantage at the heart of their philosophy.




Our Values based Coaching ethos extends to all our sevices. We place our Clients at the centre of our bespoke coaching, facilitating and assessment solutions.


We work on the belief that one size does not fit all - and every project we work on is totally unique. Our solutions are not off the shelf which means that your business gets the right support and help. Whether you are an individual, team or organisation we deliver competitive advantage.













    John Tattersall - Executive Coach & Facilitator  >>>


    We are always facing one challenge or another, perhaps experiencing huge change, or uncertainty? Our sense of self may be under attack leaving us feeling severely tested. Sometimes Leadership feels like a lonely place. In the fast pace of modern life, time spent with someone attentively listening to you is massively undervalued and rarely experienced. Talking out loud about what’s on your mind in the moment is powerful and restorative.


    There is something wonderful about verbalising your thinking, it uncovers blind spots, creates sparks, and provides insights.


    For the past seven years John’s ‘values and key principles’ based coaching and facilitation practice has been helping individuals and teams improve their working relationships, decision-making and ability to navigate change. John has over 30 years business culture experience, beginning his career in Commercial Financial Services where he built many relationships with business leaders across a wide spectrum of industries. “I count myself very fortunate to undertake work that I love. Coaching and Facilitating is a wonderful way to learn from people in positions of great responsibility. I’m proud to have been around when people have overcome difficult challenges, rationalised their thinking, moved themselves further towards their goals with improved outcomes.”


    “My intention is always to put you at the centre of your coaching. I work hard at building trust and place confidentiality at the top of my list of priorities.”


    “When facilitating teams increasing trust and improving process are the cornerstone of improving working relationships.”


    When John is not coaching or facilitating you can probably find him researching, and when he’s not doing that he will be enjoying life outdoors.
