Coaching: Psychology in action

We have a great deal of coaching experience in the business world, having coached senior executives and managers in many different companies. Our roots in sports psychology may seem, on the surface, to be far removed from what is commonly understood by 'executive coaching', however, the underlying psychological factors required to achieve optimum performance in both areas are often surprisingly similar. Moreover, they share a commonality in that it can require a high degree of mental mastery to maintain or improve performance when the pressure is really on.
