Board Level coaching

Recent clients include;

  • Managing Director and Sales Director from a multi -national, £multi - million engineering organisation
  • Director of Employment and HR Director at an organisation providing international educational services
  • Director and Partner from a Chancery Lane law firm
  • Chief Executive from a Charity
  • Public sector Board Chairman
  • Engineering Director for a high tech, high growth transatlantic organisation.


  • Following chemistry checks, these Executives chose Angela Sabin as their coach.
  • Typically, we meet monthly for 2 hour sessions.  Some sessions are virtual.
  • Some opted for questionnaires to enhance self - awareness and specific skills related to their goals, such as Emotional Intelligence, Handling Conflict.
  • Others opted for team coaching with their senior management teams.

So what’s different about coaching at this level?

Directors I have worked with encounter challenges not faced by junior colleagues:

  • Relentless pressure to deliver leading to increased stress levels.
  • No clear boundaries between work and home. Execs often put in hours that eat into private time.
  • So in demand in their present role, little time for personal/career development.
  • Thrive in action-orientated, pressurised environments; however, this leaves scant time for thinking, especially around strategic issues and risks.
  • Issues Directors grapple with are highly confidential; often can’t be discussed systematically with busy peers, which makes it hard to gain focus on a clear and compelling vision.
  • No sounding board or opposing opinion. The more senior you become, the less frequently others tend to challenge you.

Typical Goals

Here are a selection of goals recent Board Level clients have brought:

  • Thinking through strategic issues
  • Reflecting on own effectiveness
  • Freeing up time from operations to strategy
  • Managing risks and damage limitation
  • Handling challenging colleagues and stakeholders
  • Building networks
  • Managing stress levels
  • Work life balance
  • Impostor syndrome.

Sample Client Comments

“Angela’s coaching skills are effective: she listens without telling you what to do; lets you talk things through and reach your own conclusions; gently and wisely prompts when necessary, offering tools to help where appropriate.  The biggest difference the coaching has made to my organisation is having a more effective leader with a sensible workload, a managed diary and time built in for creativity and reflection.” Chief Executive.

“I recommend Angela as a coach to even the most seasoned leader, to gain a fresh and innovative perspective. The challenges Angela makes in each session have made me a stronger leader.” Operations Director.

“I did find the feedback hard but indicative of where I am at the moment so lots of food for thought. Thanks for your sensitivity in the handling of the feedback it was much appreciated.  I feel this has given me an impetus and is therefore a really helpful intervention.” Director.
