Tailored Professional Development for Leaders and Senior Executives
Executive coaching or one-to-one coaching (1:1) is when a person works individually with an executive coach on their particular areas of strengths and weaknesses in order to fulfil their potential. It is a catalyst for the enhanced performance of the individual and the teams they lead.
“A fun, motivational and totally unique style of fast-track leadership development that has delivered far more than I thought possible. At the start of the executive coaching I had a goal to become a Director in 18 months to 2 years time. Through the coaching, I was offered a Directorship after 6 months. As a manager and individual I feel totally revived and have gained instant benefit allowing me to achieve and surpass my desired objectives. If I had known the impact it had, I would have paid for it myself and done it ages ago!”

The Best in the Business
Performance Consultants pioneered coaching in business over 30 years ago and continues to lead the field globally, providing executive coaching, leadership development, team development and coaching skills training for leaders and managers around the world. Through coaching interventions and our unique evaluation methods we help individuals focus on current and future achievements in a way that builds awareness of strengths, establishes personal responsibility and results in behaviour change that impacts the bottom-line.
Performance Consultants provides you with the opportunity to fulfil your potential by working one-to-one with a choice of some of the world’s best executive coaches.

Our Approach: Long-term Results
Our approach and success are characterized by collaboration and partnership with our clients and a concentrated, clear focus on achieving outstanding results where we are certain that we can truly bring quality and value.
Our executive coaching interventions offer a transformational approach to coaching rather than a transactional approach. This means our coaches work not only at the behaviour level but also at the mindset and beliefs level which is the element that makes the difference between short-term change and long-term transformation.
Our global reach ensures that for multinational companies we can provide executive coaching in any location, in multiple languages, tailored for each individual but with an across-the board transformational approach.
Who is Executive Coaching For?
Executive coaching is tailored to the needs of the individual. Some of the reasons for using executive coaching are:
- preparation for role/career changes;
- managing stress, change, conflict or crisis;
- enhancing personal impact and performance;
- supporting the appointment of a person into a different role;
- accelerating the personal development of individuals defined as high potential;
- acting as an objective and independent sounding board to a senior individual;
- offering tailored development as a means of rewarding and retaining key staff critical to the business.
Executive Coaching Process
We deliver executive coaching sessions either face to face, via telephone coaching or a mixture of both mediums. We work collaboratively with each client to ensure that their needs and objectives are understood before facilitating a match with a coach. Clients are provided with coach profiles and we aim to ensure each person is matched with a coach they are comfortable with and aligned with their values. Each client is taken through an evaluation process to set benchmarks prior to coaching and a final evaluation session to provide details on development and return on investment. Throughout the coaching process, regular update reports on coaching progress and status are provided including trends, progress and recommendations, and respecting the confidentiality of the coaching.
Evaluation and Return on Investment (ROI)
Performance Consultants specializes in evaluating the impact of coaching engagements and estimating the return on investment (ROI). We use our in-house coaching evaluation tool, Coaching for Performance ROI, to measure the baseline at the outset of the coaching relationship and the growth and development that has occurred during the coaching sessions. Depending on the position of the coachee within the organization, it is possible to trace the impact to the bottom line – see the easyJet Case Study for example. Please note that the confidentiality of the coaching is not compromised through this method.
Coaching Training Programmes
After personally experiencing the benefits of coaching, many of our executive coaching clients are excited to learn how to coach and develop their own coaching leadership style. We support them to do this through training programmes such as Coaching Training for Managers and Coaching Leadership Development. Clients can also choose to go on to the cutting-edge transformational leadership programmes which are championed by leaders and change agents the world over.
