Coaching at Blue Granite is driven by our clients’ aspirations: the leadership outcomes and impact they seek for themselves. We customise each coaching engagement to a client’s unique background, strengths, environment and objectives.
Through the process, our clients shift their thinking to discern their best self as a leader and apply this expanded self-awareness to advance toward the leadership impact they seek.
We provide a range of customised Executive Leadership Development Services for leaders at C-suite, Partner and Senior Operational levels. Our services extend to Classroom and Group Facilitation, Group Coaching, and Advisory Services relating to Leadership Development and Succession Planning.
“The sessions were motivating, not draining,
even when tackling the tougher issues. His questions
often took me down a path I didn’t always anticipate,
but always led me to the right conclusion.”

The Blue Granite Approach
At Blue Granite Coaching we ground our engagements in a safe, supportive environment of mutual respect and trust. We apply a co-active coaching approach, which opens our clients to self-discovery and new thinking to put fresh perspectives and insights to work in service of stronger leadership impact.
We collaborate with clients and their sponsors to establish clear agreement on where coaching will focus and how the process and relationship will operate. As required, we employ a variety of methods to gather and apply validated data and observations across intellectual, emotional and physical dimensions to reveal diverse perspectives on leadership effectiveness and opportunities for greater strength.
Through the coaching process we support the client as they consider the implications of this awareness and apply it toward new leadership actions they can take in pursuit of their professional and personal goals.
