Senior leadership development

Starr Performance offers executive coaching and leadership development which will make a real difference to the way senior managers and leaders perform as individuals, Directors or senior management team.

There is a saying that “the bottleneck is at the neck of the bottle”, which in an organisational setting could potentially apply to many senior leaders, their senior management teams and their Boards. The success of any organisation significantly depends on the calibre of the people at the top; the people making decisions about the direction, priorities and culture of the organisation. The ability of those senior individuals to work collaboratively and perform under pressure even during challenging times can be greatly enhanced through individual and team coaching and by on-going leadership development, undertaken by people who’ve been there and who understand the challenges faced.  The ability of senior leaders to work together can also be a bottleneck and pairs coaching focusing on building a powerful working relationship between two people can be extremely effective.  At Starr Performance, we know that we can make a real difference to your business.

‘I found that Baz challenged and stimulated my understanding of myself, the way I made decisions and what my role as a leader actually is. Things I took for granted about the way our Board worked, were suddenly not set in stone any more and as the dynamics shifted within the Board, we performed better too’



Pairs coaching focuses on the relationship between two leaders and is usually carried out with two coaches observing and providing live feedback on the interaction between the two leaders. Pairs coaching is a highly skilled process which provides a safe environment for senior managers to explore and strengthen their working relationship.

 Leadership is a ‘way of being’ and it is one’s ‘way of being’ that evolves through a transformational coaching approach. Senior leadership development has more to do with developing a new mind-set than new skills. Find out more...
