How our clients have found the experience

“The Growing Coaches platform is a really creative solution that delivers a true “win win” to coaches, clients and the coachee. The platform is simple to navigate and, most importantly, the insight from our leaders working with “growing coaches” is  that the quality of coaching is exceptional.  As a Chief People Officer access to high quality Exec coaching at a competitive rate, whilst also supporting coaches through their accredited training, is a great solution.”

“My experience with The Growing Coaches was excellent. The matching process worked really well and my coach was a good fit. We focused on building my self-confidence in the early sessions, then looked at how I can develop my leadership style and better identify my strengths. My coach was great at structuring the sessions, asking incisive questions, and really pushing me to challenge my own thinking. The learning I took from the sessions continues to shape my thinking and my approach at work. “

Andy Leverton

"I would definitely recommend The Growing Coaches platform, in fact I have recommended it to my team! I was matched with a brilliant coach who has really helped me to reach my goals and grow in confidence and focus in my work. It was really helpful being able to see how our interests and experiences aligned before meeting a coach, and it was useful to clarify exactly what I wanted to get out of it before we started. Thank you!"

Helen Undy

“I can not recommend The Growing Coaches enough. From the simple on line matching tool to find the perfect coach to each of the one to one sessions I found the experience well facilitated and from a personal perspective hugely enlightening and valuable. The standard of coaching was second to none and has helped me understand who and what I truly value. I look forward to my future life adventures with greater clarity to my purpose and the tools to deliver it.“

My coach was a fantastic non-judgemental listener who coached me through some changes at work whilst also supporting me to really think and act on personal challenges too. It had a long-lasting impact with my decision-making, and I still go back to my notes to remind myself of the learning – thank you!"

“The Growing Coaches platform was a marvel. Finding a coach who will ‘get your world’ is no easy thing. The platform linked me to a coach who helped me to understand some systems thinking and to achieve some personal and concrete plans. I’m really grateful as it came at a tough time during the pandemic and has helped me move forward with significant questions. Thank you, Growing Coaches!”

Josephine Knowles
Co Director, Beyond the Streets

"Working with The Growing Coaches has been the perfect solution – access to executive level coaches on a flexible basis, and more crucially for us a process that matches coachees to coaches based on a range of professional and personal factors. We have identified coaches for 3 of our more promising senior leaders, ensuring that we continue to support them and the results are already positive – not only do the individuals feel supported but we can see the benefit of ongoing development at executive level."

Emma Robertson

"The Growing Coaches platform allowed me to connect with a great coach. The matching process was smooth, the website has good features and is very easy to navigate through. It made a real difference that I could explore options and get to know the coaches background before having an initial conversation."

Astrid Lietz
VP People, DAZN

"As an early user of The Growing Coaches, I was fortunate to connect with a coach who helped me to reflect, refocus and move forward with my career. I would recommend the Growing Coaches to anyone seeking expert support in finding solutions to their personal and professional challenges."

Michael Campbell
Director, Acquisition Marketing, Guardian News & Media

"Having no prior coaching experience to this I had found the platform to be very accessible for a new coachee. The matching process was seamless and it appears that the selection of coaches were of high quality and from a variety of backgrounds. My coaching experience was impactful and I continue to rely on the insights I gained today."
