  • Or you are looking for Executive Coaches for your Senior Leadership, C-Suite or Board

  • Or want to find out how to better measure the Coaching ROI you are delivering to your organisation

Our Coaching Programmes deliver measurable ROI

It is our belief that coaching should not be an indulgence, perhaps offered to the few and written off as personal development, but a sensible and commercially effective way of driving organisational performance and the bottom line results. Most importantly, every programme should be measurable against pre agreed performance objectives. We are proud that all our programmes deliver an ROI from 5 to over 100 times the original investment.

In just one striking example of being coached an employee came up with a solution to an issue that resulted in increased revenue of £250,000 for the company contributing to an early return on investment of 5 times the entire programme cost.

Jenifer Richmond, HRD, National Express

The ROI was fast and tangible - the inspection result was excellent...also reported measurable improvements such as increased productivity, better team working, managers taking a more proactive approach and handling problems better. I have no hesitation in recommending Notion.

Pragmatic vs. Academic Coaching Solutions

Our style is about delivering results. We deliver pragmatic solutions that work and have long term sustainable value for your organisation. We don't just focus on the academic angle of coaching - we're more about embedding coaching into the workplace. 

Don't get us wrong, we can hold our heads high against all the academic and university based coaching companies out there. We have University lecturers in our team and we deliver training to some of the top business schools in the world, we even work with and train in several top Russell Group Universities, plus most of our team are published authors on coaching related subjects, feel free to browse our Recommended Reading page to see their collective impressive list of books.

We can also provide formal accreditations with World Class Leadership and Coaching bodies 

Alongside our highly acclaimed 'on the job' coaching skills programmes we also offer a wide range of coaching programmes that lead through to formal accreditations up to post graduate level qualifications.

We are an approved centre of the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) through to ILM7 as well as members of Associate of Coaching.

As a result we can offer a wide range of accredited programmes to meet your specific objectives.

In addition to our 'no-fluff, psychobabble free approach', we have a fully manned back office so we ensure that any programmes we work on run seamlessly for you.

...and we're fun to work with!

We haven't lost our sense of humour yet, we love what we do and whilst we work hard we also work hard to ensure our Client's experience is fun as well as professional. Laughter is included in the learning journey for free!

Something to think about

“Using [coaching] instead of sending executives and managers to seminars two or three times a year can be more beneficial to ongoing career development, not to mention less expensive…"
PC Week

“A study featured in Public Personnel Management Journal reports that managers (31) that underwent a managerial training program showed an increased productivity of 22.4%. However, a second group was provided coaching following the training process and their productivity increased by 88%. Research does demonstrate that one-on-one executive coaching is of value.”
