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.
For anyone in a leadership position or aspiring to develop their career I would completely endorse Stuart as an outstanding executive coach. His coaching style is completely focused on the needs of the client, very empathetic, understanding when to encourage or challenge you to search within yourself for the answer and when to provide practical and finely tuned coaching advice.
Paul Heckles - CFO, Fresenius Medical
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 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.

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.

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.

It created stronger leaders who could make decisions faster and lead the organisation to achieve greater outcomes.
