Business Coaching in North East

With Chris Jeffs

During the past 35 years I have had five very different careers.

In a variety of senior and board level roles I have managed multi-million $ Global projects and conducted business across Europe, Asia and the USA; working for companies such as GSK and Hewlett Packard.

As a principal lecturer in Strategic Management, I managed the executive MBA programme and was Director of Business Programmes. I maintain a post as Affiliate Professor in Strategic Management, at the prestigious Grenoble Ecole de Management. This foothold in leading edge strategic research ensures that my clients benefit from the very best contemporary theoretical and applied practice.

During my management career I have formally (through internal coaching networks) and informally (through line management) practiced coaching and mentoring at senior management and board level. Whilst it is generally recognised that effective Executive Coaching and Mentoring come first and foremost from experience. I also have theoretical underpinning as a result of completing an MBA, a Doctorate in Innovation Management and a post graduate Certificate in Executive Coaching and Mentoring (Institute of Leadership and Management). In addition to my CPD, these qualifications provide accreditation (Association for Coaching), assured professional standards and confidence that the latest coaching methodologies are being practiced.

My coaching style is non-directive, friendly and relaxed. I have a reputation for rapidly getting to the core of complex issues and simplifying strategic and relational issues. In a confidential and supportive environment I can be challenging, providing the role of both a sounding board and devil's advocate. After a few meetings my clients can demonstrate an increased self-awareness and emotional intelligence, becoming more effective in managing relationships and confident in their roles

I have coached and mentored across both public and private sectors, from city councils to financial institutions, healthcare and manufacturing. Executives that I work with have usually established themselves in a successful management career and are adapting to a new leadership role. The following are often identified as development areas:

Emotional and Tactical Intelligence

Self-Marketing and Visibility

Internal and External Networking

Senior team Relationship Management

Building Trust

Creating Vision and Strategy

Motivational Leadership

Time Management

Collaboration and Team Development

Conflict Resolution

Change Management
