At in2minds I take a tailored approach to supporting individuals in their desire to increase motivation and effectiveness. Whether you are trying to rediscover your passion for what you do, identify new ways to put your strengths to good use or make the right choice from options in front of you, I can help you.
I also deliver coaching for Leaders, to increase the impact of their leadership style and activities.
In general a one to one approach is taken to challenge your thinking and help you to make sense of your thoughts. My aim is to offer you the right combination of support and challenge, with a focus on outcomes and changes that will achieve the objectives we agree together at the start.
Although an individually tailored approach is my primary way of working, I also access tools such as the SDI (strengths deployment inventory) where they'd help us to achieve results more effectively.
Alan was instrumental in helping me to understand where my career priorities lay and to build the skills I needed to ultimately take the challenge of a new role. In particular, Alan showed me a route to building my confidence in expressing my thoughts and ideas to others, something which I felt had always held me back previously. I feel very fortunate to have benefitted from Alan's thoughtful yet challenging guidance and would strongly recommend Alan to anyone else who feels they need assistance in rebooting their career.B M - Client Relationship Manager
Alan was my coach for the duration of a SIMA (motivations coaching) programme. I undertook this programme at a period of time when I was considering a change of employer. Alan was very focused during our coaching sessions and constructively challenged my beliefs about myself, enabling me to think in a logical and positive way about my future options. Alan always allowed time for me to express myself and has an open and friendly manner, without appearing patronising. The experience of undertaking the SIMA programme, with Alan’s support, was extremely beneficial and I would strongly recommend Alan as a coach.SB, Senior Manager, NHS
Alan was refreshing to work with. He delivers his own brand of mentoring, which combines the rigour of human performance methodologies with the right amount of humour and personality necessary to deal with the topic without it seeming awkward. Alan challenged me to apply some of the intellectual and analytical rigour of my strategy consulting job to my own development and career.PW, Associate, private equity investment fund managers
Alan has helped me to take a different approach to my work and career. He has enabled me look at problems more creatively and also to step back and see the bigger strategic picture. He draws on extensive experience to help me identify a helpful course of action for the whole range of workplace issues, from building relationships with difficult colleagues to managing upwards and advancing my career.BS, Manager, Barclays Capital
