John specialises in working with people in roles where the pressure and the stakes are high. His focus includes coaching executives and in developing high performance teams and groups in a variety of settings.

His pragmatic approach, affable style and a determination for his clients to make genuine progress serve to quickly build credibility and trust.
John helps people to improve their performance through: regaining/maintaining a sense of perspective, by helping them to understand themselves better, to identify their own barriers to performance and working out strategies for overcoming them, being clear about their purpose; understanding their role and place in the organisation, linking their objectives to organisational strategy.
