Case Study - Drake & Morgan

Notion has worked with Jillian MacLean MBE and her company, Drake & Morgan, since 2011. Notion initially supported Jillian with Executive Coaching, on her journey to grow the business. Notion's support has evolved over the years to include coaching and development programmes for other Board members and the management team.

Jillian MacLean is founder and CEO of Drake & Morgan, which consists of 23 bars and restaurants in landmark locations across London, Edinburgh and Manchester. She spent the majority of her early career in a variety of different roles at Mitchells & Butlers, most notably as Operations Director. Jillian has received several industry accolades for her work with Drake & Morgan, which she launched in 2008. In 2013, she was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List 2013, for services to the hospitality industry.

Watch this video of Jillian talking about why she chose to work with Notion, and her experiences with us 

"I starting working with Notion in the early growth period of the business. I found the sessions we had together, in planning for the future of the business and my own personal performance, to be instrumental in preparing me to lead the buyout for the business.  My coach has enabled me to focus on creating shareholder value, while at the same time challenging me to consider the existing multiples and leverage.

The qualities I appreciate about my coach are that she is objective, clear, concise, and exceptionally challenging of myself and of the business.  The quality I value most about her is her great sense of humour. My coach was definitely our secret weapon in terms of helping me to think through the detail of the management buyout process.  I thoroughly recommend Notion to anyone who requires this level of support.

"I really enjoyed working with my Coach – she gave me the space to think and reach my own conclusions, but also asked great questions along the way to help with my thinking and to really challenge me. At times she shared others’ experiences and what worked for them which helped me figure out what might work for me. Over the 8 months I was working with Notion I really developed in my role. Thanks!”

Group Head, Sainsbury's

“It has been great to have someone external to my organisation to coach me, both by offering a safe environment in which to test ideas and also by being away from day-to-day distractions. My coach has been instrumental in helping me to "hold up a mirror" to myself in order to see myself as others do. The sessions have been both challenging and very rewarding; the benefits of our work together have been rapidly visible.”

Matthew Arends, Principal & Actuary, Aon Hewitt

"My coach was very flexible and helpful in every way. The insights, tips and tools I got were “spot on” every single time, and I am greatly thankful for that.  Enlightening, provoking, inspiring and reflective, my coach had a great sense of humour and some of the phrases they used to help my understanding will stay with me forever."

"The coaching has been outstanding and as a direct result just one of the benefits is over £3m in additional cost savings! I would give the experience a 10 out of 10!"

Andy Melling, Head of Fleet Maintenance, Royal Mail

"My coach provided a rare combination of executive business coaching with in-depth psychological knowledge. Depending on the topic at hand, they offered practical, to-the-point suggestions, while at the same time triggering broader introspection.  I quickly came back for more. Touching base on a regular basis with my coach was an excellent way to critically examine oneself and come back to the company with a fresh perspective." 

Commercial Director, Air France/KLM

"The personal and business benefits gained from coaching with my coach were invaluable. The techniques she introduced me to helped me reach sound conclusions on issues I was dealing with. There was no real requirement to understand the type of business I run, more the way I run it or want to run it, therefore our time was maximised in dealing with the key objectives I wanted to improve on or problems I encountered where I needed a voice of reason to help see the way forward. This was a true partnership in every sense of the word."

Results You Can Expect From Notion

Our overriding objective is to design and deliver a programme that delivers exceptional results to each executive receiving the coaching and delivers commercially to the parent organisation. On our large scale coaching programmes this normally results in a change wave of performance across the organisation and highly measurable returns on investments. 

8 Most Common Reasons why Senior Leaders consider Executive Coaching:

  1. Because you are already good and recognise that it’s going to take that bit extra to become Outstanding! - In the same way that top sportsmen and women will always seek out the top coaches in their field, you too should have an Executive Coach that will encourage you to reach your potential. Your Executive Coach will hold you accountable for the actions that you agree to complete, will make demands of you that will continually stretch your performance and will push, challenge, cajole and motivate you to achieve them. They will also be there to be the first to congratulate you on a job well done!
  2. You are moving into a new, more Senior role, and would like support during this crucial period - You need to 'hit the ground running' and are particularly vulnerable in the first few months as you will lack an in-depth knowledge of the challenges you'll face and what it will take to succeed within the new role.  Call us to learn more about our specific programmes to support new roles and promotions.
  3. You are involved in delivering or running a strategic change programme and failure isn't an option - Any strategic change programme demands rigour and having a safe space to brainstorm and plan the way ahead for your team can be critical to the overall projects success. Coaching can help ensure all aspects of the programme run on time and delivers the results. Often taking a coaching approach brings projects in ahead of time and budget.
  4. You have a lot of business experience but have neglected your own personal development - You may work hard to ensure that people in your team receive all of the appropriate training, but your own development needs have moved beyond generic training. As a result, you have neglected your own development. Choosing to work with an Executive Coach from Notion is not a personal indulgence but a significant investment in your rapid development. Your coaching relationship will focus like a laser on the key aspects that will make a difference to you and your performance, now. Together, you will establish key measures of improvement and work diligently at removing any obstacles that might prevent you from achieving the desired results i.e. ensuring that there is a return on that investment.
  5. You feel that you have reached a plateau in your current role and need to reignite your passion to strive for the next level - Working with your Executive Coach can help you build a strong impression of the value you have to contribute to your organisation and together help you discover career avenues that will allow you once again to contribute at your highest capability level.

  6. You believe that you simply aren’t getting the best out of your people and that your team as a whole isn’t as effective as it could and should be - ‘Leadership’ is the new watchword for career success, but defining the elements of leadership that you need to build upon in order to motivate your team’s performance is an area that can be explored more fully through working with your Executive Coach. For example, striking the balance between professional aloofness and intimacy with your team has a significant impact on the respect you are accorded as a leader.
  7. You are swamped by the volume of work you are expected to deliver – like any modern Executive, we are bombarded by high volumes of work in a fast moving and changing landscape. Your Executive Coach can act as a sounding board and offer an alternative perspective that it can sometimes be difficult to gain for yourself. Together you will work to identify the fundamental issues that need to be addressed and select activities with confidence that you know will make the difference.
  8. The results that you achieve don’t seem to justify your efforts - If you want to continue doing what you have always done it should come as no surprise that you will get the same results. Notion's Executive Coaches will challenge your status quo and get you focused on taking action now that will enable you to make the improvements that matter. We call this ‘focusing on the fundamentals’ and it will involve change, so you need to be open to this for it to be successful – the results can often be dramatic!

"My coach has been my mentor for the past year and I couldn’t speak highly enough of how they have helped me over this time. Their style was professional, relaxed, informal and challenging to ensure you take the right steps in maximising your personal development and business opportunities.

My coach had that rare gift of asking the most insightful questions to encourage you to dig deep in exploring previous experiences and personal values to create your own solutions. I am convinced there will be long lasting benefits too as they equipped me with the skills to be more self aware and courageous in any situation.”

Sales & Marketing Director, Flogas UK

“As a result of working with my Notion Executive Coach I have developed a better understanding of my impact in the organisation. I now have a wider perspective about what’s affecting the organisation and what might affect the motivations of people in other areas of the business - not just inside the finance world. This has helped me to engage with my peers more effectively and build more effective relationships. It was great to bounce ideas off my Executive Coach - taking the time to consider issues from new angles has helped me to change the way I respond in different situations. I can’t fault my Notion executive coaching experience - it has helped me to get off the treadmill, reflect, and make positive changes.”  

Dave Lindsay, FD, West Midland Trains

“Working with my Notion Executive Coach has had a massive impact on my work and personal life - the change has been really significant. I focus on the now rather than the ‘what if?’ and as a result, I have become far less reactive and much more calm, measured and considered, without sacrificing the need for pace and urgency.  This has dramatically improved my personal productivity and my influence and relationships with people in the business. The knock on effect to my team has also been clear both in terms of engagement and personal stretch for them.   I don’t often give 10 out of 10, but I can honestly say that on this occasion I am more than happy to do so and would recommend this to anyone who wants to get clear about their goals and achieve their outcomes.”

Something to think about

“Business coaching is attracting America’s top CEOs because, put simply, business coaching works. In fact, when asked for a conservative estimate of monetary payoff from the coaching they got… managers described an average return of more than $100,000, or about six times what the coaching had cost their companies.”
FORTUNE Magazine

“Executives should seek coaching] when they feel that a change in behaviour-either for themselves or their team members-can make a significant difference in the long-term success of the organisation.”
Marshall Goldsmith, Fast Company Columnist
