Executive Coaching.. for results

Coaching for results

Successfully selling, leading businesses, inspiring teams of people, building and communicating strategy, or simply finding your way in the commercial world are increasingly demanding. You don’t just need the right capabilities, you increasingly need the right mindset, focus, energy and people around you. At Chilli we provide exceptional, objective-driven support in the form of development coaching to help you exercise your skills, navigate the bumps in the road and, where needed, challenge your thinking.

Our executive coaching provides a structured, safe yet challenging environment in which to support to you as an individual. You decide on the objectives and your personally selected coach will partner with you in a thought-provoking and creative process that will inspire you to maximise your professional potential.

Why do the best athletes and performers in the world have coaches?
  • Confidential and independent sounding board
  • Reinforce a positive mindset with a focus on strengths and capabilities
  • Exercise broader capabilities and specific development areas
  • To focus attention on what is important and on what delivers results
  • To challenge strategy, goals and objectives and the roadmap to achieving them

If they can benefit from this type of support - everyone can! And we have a roster of high performing, experienced coaches to choose from, all with a range of different experience and backgrounds.

How do we deliver?
  • Chilli offers one to one, outcome-focused development coaching specifically to your objectives, timelines and deadlines. Delivered ad hoc or as a programme by psychologically trained and certified coaches.
  • You provide the objectives and following a “get to know you” session with one of our coaches, if the chemistry works then we agree the framework and deliver the results.
