My coaching sessions with Stewart coincided with my taking on a new role, in an unfamiliar part of my organisation where I was managing a large team. My sessions with Stewart allowed me to identify what I wanted to achieve both in the short and medium term and, consequently, what success in my role would look like. As a result, with Stewart's support, I was able to construct a set of priorities and then to define an action-plan in order to deliver on those priorities. The fact that Stewart was formerly an MD in a large financial services firm means that he easily understood the context of my new role as well as the challenges and opportunities that such a role would provide, which made for an enormously constructive coaching relationship.
Working with Stewart has been fantastic. His approach has been very refreshing and a great source of very valuable insights. Working with Stewart has enabled me to consider both day to day challenges, as well as longer term personal career goals. As a relative newcomer to the legal sector the challenges for me were wide and varied. I felt confident in describing situations to Stewart as they arose and also in his way of getting me think of new approaches and methods of seeking solutions to things. I would consider working with Stewart again in future and I am very glad to have had the opportunity to work with him during what I consider to be a pivotal stage in my career and my own personal development. I would be happy to recommend Stewart as a top quality coach!
