Helping talented professionals and executives become better leaders
I am a business and leadership focused executive coach based in London. I provide executive coaching to individuals and teams, both in-person and virtually. I help successful professionals, entrepreneurs, aspiring leaders, and high-level executives through my coaching to develop their leadership skills and capabilities.
I spent 22 years in finance before becoming a coach. During that time, I worked at Morgan Stanley in New York and London as a Managing Director and held the role of Chief Operating Officer.
I am at my best when helping clients to develop their leadership skills and capabilities. Specifically, the objective analysis and evaluation of issues, and strategic options for their careers and businesses – to help them think and make better decisions, enabling them to thrive and differentiate during volatility, unpredictability, and the pressure to continuously “do”. This includes developing and enhancing their skills, a transition to a new role and taking on more responsibility and more significant roles. While at Morgan Stanley, I was a sought-after coach and mentor and recognised for my commitment to improving diversity, especially aspiring female leaders.
I have built and led highly effective teams. Delivering improvements in financial performance and overseeing significant business change, and was a member of the successful, global leadership team that returned the Morgan Stanley Fixed Income Division to healthy growth. I enjoyed working in complex, fast-paced commercial businesses and have first-hand experience of the complexities and issues professionals face today.
My collaborative and pragmatic coaching style utilises stories and insights from this successful, eventful, and yet a humbling 22-year corporate career.
I provide several crucial roles through my coaching, including being an independent sounding board, someone that will challenge and hold you accountable. Someone that will give an outside perspective to raise your self-awareness and help you identify solutions for your problems.
My focus is on actionable insights and the outcome-driven applications and most productive ways to get results for my clients that lead to positive, lasting change. Clients describe me as a “trusted sounding board”, and one Chief Technology Officer says, “I’d recommend Rob to anybody who is determined to make a change and to engage constructively.”
