Our story

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

Our senior associates include pioneers such as Tim Gallwey, creator of the Inner Game, and Gita Bellin, renowned for her work in Transformational Leadership.

Our flagship programme, Coaching for Performance evolved to give leaders and coaches the skills to create high performance, purpose-led cultures. It is the industry gold standard – with results demonstrated repeatedly through client work and academic study.

Today we are the global leaders in coaching. We help organisations achieve their potential by creating high performance cultures that deliver practical, measurable results.​

We work with clients across all industries in 40 countries and 23 languages. Our partnering ‘whole-system’ approach to client work has kept us at the forefront of adapting coaching to achieve the business goals of some of the world’s largest and most diverse organizations.

“Performance Consultants shine a light on what it takes to create high performance and unpick the myths around coaching. Leaders and employees the world over are truly fortunate to benefit from their enduring impact on our working lives.”

John McFarlane, Chairman, Barclays plc

Our values and vision

Sustainable transformational leadership is at the heart of Performance Consultants’ philosophy. Our vision is of a world in which all life matters: sustainability is at the core of what we do. Our intention is to be a force for good, creating transformational leaders and whole system transformation.

Organizations have previously existed primarily to create profit but now their remit is being widened by employees who want to find fulfilment and purpose in their work and a society which demands that companies act with integrity. Meeting these demands requires transformational leaders at the top who are able to help their teams develop and rise to new challenges rather than leaders who solely help their teams at the technical level.

Our global team

Performance Consultants’ reputation for excellence in coaching and transformation stems from our Global team of coaches, facilitators and project managers who are all passionate about making a positive difference through coaching and transformation. The team spans all continents, bringing experience of all industries and levels of seniority and has multilingual delivery capability.

The home of performance coaching

Performance coaching raises performance in individuals, teams and organizations. We offer individual executive coaching (1:1) and Coaching for Performance training for people in organizations to help them fulfil their potential. As individuals flourish, company performance improves. Performance coaching helps sustainable improvement and growth because it engages hearts as well as minds.

Workplace coaching, leadership development and transformation

We provide a unique blend of capabilities and integrated services for individual, team and organizational development:

  • Public coach training courses – open-access courses for individuals pursuing coach certification, and transformational leadership skills;
  • Leadership development – creating outstanding leaders through off-the-shelf or tailored in-house training and executive coaching.
  • Team development – raising team performance through team coaching;

Organizational and leadership development training

We believe leadership is based on individual and collective awareness and responsibility, at all levels of an organization. The organizations that are fit for the 21st century are those where leadership, strategy and culture are integrated.

Our coaching and transformation programmes can provide an holistic approach for organizations, or more focused interventions may be appropriate depending on business and individual requirements.

To experience our programme for yourself, join one of our upcoming open-enrolment programmes. Alternatively, you can find out more about tailor-made training for your organization in performance coaching training for managers or coaching leadership development.
