The COach House
While coaching is not therapy, many clients report that it has a therapeutic effect and this never surprises us. The luxury of spending 90 minutes with an experienced coach focussing their entire attention on the client’s issues could hardly have any other outcome.
Our approach to executive coaching helps leaders master the skills and insights that built strong, healthy, thriving organisations. We love working with leaders to explore personality and values, identify and recognise their strengths, and fuel them with strategies for growth and development.
Our coaching clients come to us to strengthen team communication approaches, steer change, plan strategically, grow business opportunities, manage their time and head-space better, succession plan, professionally develop their staff, improve their results ...
Unsurprisingly, empowering leaders to build strong communication cultures sets apart our coaching approach.
We coach leaders to foster internal and interpersonal communication capability.
We give them tools and strategies to strengthen their teams and grow a positive communication and performance culture.
We share engagement and influencing strategies that empower them to respond to change pressures.
Coach also draws upon a range of metrics and inventories, including our LEAP 360 suite, the Myers Briggs Type Assessment (MBTI), DiSC profiling and the Genos International Emotional Intelligence Leadership Surveys.
Managing a difficult team member. Raising the performance of a sluggish team. Implementing a strategic plan. Juggling a gruelling workload. Shaping a new vision. Providing difficult feedback. Contending with insufficient budgets. Navigating stubborn decision-makers …
Every single business challenge you’ll ever faced can be owned with great communication strategies and skills.
Coach’s unique and well-tested communication coaching model helps thousands of clients find release from their greatest business pressures.
Our communication coaching is accessible to everyone: From seasoned leaders to aspiring professionals. Grounded in a fundamental understanding of the neuroscience of communication, our positively charged, practical coaching approaches focus on producing change that lasts … Whether your focus is on improving your public speaking confidence or dealing with disagreements for effectively.
Some clients choose to focus on a single issue over a number of sessions while others may start this way but explore a range of issues as the sessions unfold. We’re on the change journey with you.

"Russell is able to get to the heart of the matter rapidly. Being able to talk through issues with him has been extremely helpful: his insight has been very welcome and his ability to link back to a session that took place a year earlier is amazing. I engaged with Russell early 2016 and continue to get great value from his services. Based in the UK we use Skype or FaceTime for most of our sessions but there have been a couple of excellent face to face ones too."
Russell Scott brings extensive skills, qualifications in the education and vocational sectors to his coaching and mentoring roles. In my coaching sessions with him, I could see he is an astute observer and an active listener. He also possesses the rare capacity to apply highly effective judgement and provide guidance, while maintaining appropriate empathy - all at the same time!
