The pioneer and global leader of coaching in the workplace

Performance Consultants International

Your global partner in creating collaborative, ​high-performance cultures and transformational leaders

The relationship between organizations and the people in them is evolving. Collective success increasingly flows from being centred on the wants and needs of the individual to fulfil their potential and do something meaningful.

We partner with organizations to accelerate group achievement by facilitating new mindsets and behaviours at all levels. By unlocking potential, we deliver an engaging and fulfilling working environment that is fully aligned with business strategy.

Coaching provides a timeless and universal path to self-responsibility. Through our work, we can help any company forge new methods of management thinking and infuse employees with optimism and self-belief so they attain greater levels of performance.

Performance Consultants was co-founded by Sir John Whitmore, the pioneer of coaching in the workplace, author of bestselling Coaching for Performance and co-creator of the GROW Model.

We have 40 years’ experience of delivering in-person and virtual workshops, online learning and board-level executive coaching. We partner with clients around the world in more than 20 languages to deliver practical, measurable results that have cemented our reputation as the gold-standard in the coaching industry.

“Coaching is much bigger than coaching. It is a way of being that the whole world needs to get to – where the core theme is compassion for all people and caring for all of nature and for our only home.”

In “The Coach in Your Head” podcast, Michael Lewis investigates the power of performance coaching and puts it to the test with Performance Consultants MD Tiffany Gaskell and our colleague and creator of the Inner Game, Tim Gallwey. Tiffany says:

“The great Michael Lewis has brought his incisive and entertaining approach to exploring and explaining the true story of coaching. Starting with Tim Gallwey and the creation of the Inner Game, it’s a fun and fast-moving conversation in which Michael examines different perspectives, including getting me to coach him there and then.”
