Our Coaches

Only the best can deliver the best, and that’s why I have joined up with some of the top expert agency coaches around to support the growing specific needs each agency leader has. From Positioning, Purpose and People to Sales, Strategy and Systems… The best people to help you are ready to go!

Who are our expert Agency Coaches?

Each of the expert coaches I work with runs their own coaching practices with specific expertise and experience. My vision is that agencies can link their needs with each of these coaches so that they get the very best outcomes for their businesses.

You start with Purpose and Positioning and work through to Strategy, Sales, Systems and Management etc. Sometimes needing one coach and other times needing more than one, at the right time, using the same approach and language throughout.

It’s like having a real Jack or all trades who is an expert at each trade, only that Jack is actually many people, all working in the same ways.😊

Craig Stuart

Bio

Craig is a coach and people development specialist who works with individuals and teams to create positive and lasting change. His work is grounded in the understanding that we are what we repeatedly do, and his approach involves helping people to overcome challenges through attention, repetition, and encouragement. This creates sound patterns of self-leadership through enhanced self-awareness. Not only does this process help individuals to be fully present in their work and life, it also ultimately empowers them to take control of what guides and drives them.

Craig’s key strength lies in navigating relational complexity in the workplace. He does this by helping his clients gain perspective and a clear understanding of their environment, themselves, and their role in those spaces. His coaching niche lies in his ability to create healthy rhythms, routines, and habits for those already on their leadership journey or those just starting out, with the core belief that “It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.”

Specialisations:

Helping leaders:

  1. Focus on developing their ability to self-lead and also how they lead their teams.
  2. Engage in relational complexity, usually arising from a rapidly changing business landscape.
  3. Embark on discovering their own leadership style.
  4. Create intentional and practical leadership rhythms, routines, and habits to their lives.
  5. Who are stuck in a rut need new to change the way they solve problems, by changing the way they think.

Outcomes:

  1. Helping leaders gain a good sense of perspective when the work landscape around them constantly changes.
  2. Focusing on overcoming relational and team complexity because of that changing landscape, particularly when it comes to finding the balance between prioritising the important and the urgent.

Results:

Better headspace, growth and long-term opportunities as your career and business(es) expand.
