Coaching Philosophy

Coaching is about building resilience, strengthening personal and professional competencies and improving consistency of outcomes, while managing unseen risks within your team.

A good coach has empathy, self-awareness and humility, along with a strong technical grasp of the field of endeavor.

Most importantly, a coach must have a primal drive to draw out the best in people.

David’s Core Purposes

To Improve Performance

Performance improvement optimises outcomes. A 5% improvement in decision making can have a meaningful impact on medium to long-term performance.

To Facilitate Change

Facilitating enduring behavioural change requires an alignment of beliefs with the desired outcome; this becomes the mandate upon which change can occur.

To Enhance Wellbeing

Improving self-awareness illuminates biases and attachments which inhibit objective decision making.
