You and your leaders want to step up and achieve high performance and success. We coach you with a strategic and financial edge to achieve your goals and ambitions.
At Aim Higher Leadership we start with you, your team, your organisation. We specialise in Leadership & Executive coaching because our coaches were all senior leaders in large corporate organisations before they qualified as coaches – so we bring both our executive experience and our financial and strategic acumen, as well as our coaching expertise, to help you with your business needs and challenges.
From my first coaching sessions with Stuart it was clear that he has a talent for putting people at ease and focussing on the needs of the individual rather than following a prescribed course. He has a real passion and commitment to coaching as a tool for helping individuals reach their potential.
Supply Chain Director
It gave me the opportunity to step out from the day-job and think more widely, laterally and question a whole host of things to do with my career and working relationships.
Nick Richards - CFO, Unite Student Accommodation/Housing
Stuart helped me see the bigger picture and understand the key stakeholders. He specifically coached me on how to present to a Senior Executive audience in an articulate way. He helped me to stay motivated during the high stress tense moments and maintain my resilience.
Global IT Manager
I liked the challenging style, mixed in with theory, visuals and softer aspects – Stuart was always able to get the right balance to ensure I kept challenging myself.
Simon Loh - Divisional Managing Director, Arriva Buses
It was via Stuart that I was first exposed to coaching and the value it can bring into the organisation. I have been utilising this tool ever since to help me and my team arrive at the most powerful solutions, even if they did not appear obvious at first.
Stuart embedded coaching as part of the Foster’s culture across the EMEA business. He personally coached a broad number of individuals at all levels and functions across Foster’s, as well as training an even wider group of staff to establish coaching as a way of working at Foster’s EMEA. He established a strong finance team and transformed the finance function into a team of commercially focussed business partners. Stuart developed a large number of staff, who have successfully moved into larger roles at Foster’s, both within and outside of finance.
Stuart embedded the concept of coaching across our business with great impact, energy and drive. Stuart taught the benefits of coaching to improve performance and drive my team forward to deliver challenging results. This also had a direct impact on improving cross functional workstreams across the business.
In his coaching Stuart challenges an individual to dig deeper and makes them think about what they really want and what their values are. He has a strong set of personal values himself, which allow him to be very understanding and supportive.
Head of Strategy
Stuart’s passion for coaching, and his belief in the benefits that it can bring to an individual and the wider organisation is impressive, and this was always backed up by his personal commitment to the people he coached. At a pivotal time in my career, Stuart’s commitment to helping me reach my potential was hugely appreciated. His personal support and coaching helped me to understand what it was that was important to me in my career, and he also gave me the confidence to improve performance through adopting coaching relationships with my team.
Richard Renwick - CFO, Fosters EMEA
The real value was in asking the difficult questions, making you confront the harsh reality of a problem and start developing solutions as opposed to burying your head in the sand. Stuart clearly demonstrated the value of coaching in our business and the benefits it would bring to our organisation. It created stronger leaders who could make decisions faster and lead the organisation to achieve greater outcomes.
