Coaching & Mentoring Service

coaching & mentoring for yourself or your team members

Every sports person / team has a coach. Do you? Should you?

Do you sometimes wish as a business owner, director, or sales or marketing manager that you had somebody to talk to about ideas, challenges and opportunities? Someone who isn’t as close to the day to day running of the business and team.  Someone who could inspire, motivate, challenge, excite, and give you the confidence to try different and new ideas to achieve more and improve your business results?

Maybe you have just moved into a new leadership role and would like some help in that transition, or need some help in getting a new position in a sales or marketing role.

We all need to keep fit in our minds and business life just as professional sportspeople do.

It has been found that women in leadership roles in particular benefit from a coach or mentor from a like-minded woman. However, both men and women benefit from coaching and mentoring.

Benefits of using a Coach according to the ICF (International Coach Federation):

“Professional coaching brings many wonderful benefits: fresh perspectives on personal challenges, enhanced decision-making skills, greater interpersonal effectiveness, and increased confidence.
And, the list does not end there. Those who undertake coaching also can expect appreciable improvement in productivity, satisfaction with life and work, and the attainment of relevant goals.”

Increased Productivity

Professional coaching maximizes potential and, therefore, unlocks latent sources of productivity.


Positive People

Building the self-confidence of employees to face challenges is critical in meeting organisational demands.


Return on Investment

Coaching generates learning and clarity for forward action with a commitment to measurable outcomes. The vast majority of companies say they at least made their investment back.

Virtually all companies and individuals who hire a coach are satisfied.



More information on the benefits of coaching can be found in the ICF Research Portal, including case studies and industry reports.

What our customers said

“Karen Froud-Murray has mentored me in my current role of Regional Sales Manager for over two years. As with any role involving people management and leadership, there have been various situations where it has been necessary to seek advice from a third party:  luckily for me that was Karen. Karen’s mentoring skills are excellent and she really makes you challenge yourself and the way that you think about situations, ensuring that the skills and attributes required to be a strong leader are continually developed. Karen is energetic and persistent in her approach, she encourages and fosters an environment of self-development and self-discovery and she has played a fundamental role in my development as a Regional Sales Manager and leader.”
