Stakeholder Centered Coaching. Transformational leadership behavioural change

I have developed a 16-year track record coaching already successful executives to achieve positive, measurable change in their leadership styles and behaviours and accelerate their career development.  I have been accredited as one of only seven Master Coaches worldwide for Stakeholder Centered Coaching (Marshall Goldsmith) and completed over 2000 stakeholder interviews. I am a Master Practitioner in Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP).
