In old-school boardrooms and businesses, coaching is still seen as remedial and only for people who are underperforming. In high-level sport, a highly skilled coach has always been critical to sustainable success, even when winning lots of trophies. Now, many enlightened leaders and managers see having a coach as a badge of honour, because they want to be stretched and nudged out of their comfort zones. They know this will help them to grow and progress because people perform even better when their mindsets, habits and behaviours are challenged.
“At the top tier of just about any sort of endeavour, you’ll find that the performers have coaches. Pianists, orators and athletes all have coaches. In fact, it would be weird if we heard of someone on stage or on the field who didn’t have one. And yet, in the world of business, they’re seen as the exception.”
The Talent4Performance formula for success:
Clarity x People = Performance
Our coaching approach will help you:
- achieve clarity – identifying outcomes you want to achieve
- raise personal self-awareness – identifying your current strengths and potential blind spots
- improve performance – achieving measurable improvement against agreed critical success factors.
We use a holistic person-centered approach so you can become the very best you can possibly be. We help you explore new ways of thinking about the issues you face. This means you can develop new mindsets, habits and behaviours, and achieve the success you want.
All our coaches are highly experienced in coaching leaders, managers and individuals in a variety of contexts. A number of them also specialise in team coaching and action learning set facilitation.
The purpose of any coaching programme is to improve performance and/or personal fulfilment. This requires robust evaluation, so our coaching programmes always establish an initial baseline of performance and/or clarity of outcomes which can be used to measure progress and achievement.
We tend to focus on the four key domains of work illustrated below. However, we know that as illustrated, there is considerable overlap of these domains. We will always accommodate this while keeping you on track to achieve the results you want.
Your Development Priorities
Depending on your needs, the coaching programme can be focused on one or more of the following:
- Clarifying direction
- Managing change and reorganisation
- Enhancing personal self-awareness
- Strategic thinking
- Impact and influence
- Improving team performance
- Engagement and personal effectiveness
- Improving personal productivity

“Alli’s approach is extremely professional and she made me feel very comfortable talking about how I could work on aspects of my style, but also what I was naturally good at. I liked the can-do approach. it was a great programme and I highly recommend Alli.”
David Hemming, IHSE UK Parliament
“You enabled each director to increase their self-awareness, and identify their strengths and potential blind-spots. Many of the directors said that these were the best sessions we have ever had as a Board, because we covered a lot of ground, aired important issues, and identified a common vision of what success looks like.”
