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.
My confidence has vastly improved as a result of my coaching and I can see tangible improvements on the way I work and interact with colleagues. I can now confidently approach situations and be sure that my input is valued, which now has a positive effect on my business.
Kevin Roberts - UK Sales Director, Meda Pharmaceuticals
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.
Peter Jackson - CEO, Fosters EMEA
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 enabled us to sharpen and clarify our thinking considerably. As a leader it gave me a reassurance that I had a clear future direction that my team had built together by consensus and were fully signed up to. I am confident that we a stronger and more cohesive team as a result.
Alison Ward - CEO, Torfaen County Council
Stuart was instrumental in developing a home grown skill base for coaching within the business. His thought leadership and sheer passion for the subject converted many into followers and provided the business with a common ground from which to develop individuals’ own brand of leadership and coaching style.
What’s unique about Stuart is that he is able to combine both his business and personal experience to help individuals arrive at the very best solutions. He has been fundamental in implementing the coaching culture and a more empowered leadership style across the business
Global Marketing Director
One of the first things that you notice about Stuart is that he has a high degree of emotional intelligence, strong integrity and is a sound judge of character. His open engaging approach establishes trust early on in the coach/coachee relationship.
This is my twentieth year in education and only once have I received this kind of CPD that was tailored to me and could not be found in a good book. Coaching in this way provides something very new and unique. Partly holding up a mirror, partly a sounding board, partly an agony uncle, partly a teacher and partly a friend.
Barry Doherty - Headmaster, Colmers School
Stuart has an innate strength for coaching / mentoring and I liked his style. Far from being prescriptive, Stuart has this ability to listen patiently and throw a couple of leading probing questions that sets you on the path of discovering your own solutions. He operates as an effective sounding board bringing his years of experience to bear on the conversation.
