Ray has been very active over many years in bringing coaching to business leaders, (the ‘Coach Approach’ to Leadership), through 1to1 coaching and workshops.
He has worked in this context across sectors, private and public, including local government.
Ray is passionate about the links between exemplary leadership and coaching.
He’s developed and delivered programmes to enhance coaching skills of individuals and groups inside organisations, as well as provided advice and guidance around how to set up internal coaching practices.
Ray is interested in supporting leaders to have a coach approach in many different but specific contexts. e.g. change leadership, performance management and people development, and this links strongly to Rays passion about developing ‘new leadership’ behaviours based on vision, collaboration, connection, and community. He holds strong beliefs that tomorrow’s business success will be based on getting the best from people, and he actively encourages leaders to explore these perspectives.
Ray has many years experience as a leader himself in corporate life where he led a large customer service team, before focusing on management, leadership and executive development as a consultant, coach and trainer.
Ray has spent the last 17 years in this area of work, including an 18 month assignment to the USA working with global senior executives and their teams, focusing on business and personal transformation.
