Leadership is tough. You are constantly in the spotlight; every decision, action and statement made is scrutinised by those around you. Add to this the pressure to perform individually, and through your team, and deliver results for the business – the pressure can be relentless.
As you climb from middle management to board level, these pressures increase and change. Increasingly your main role is to manage relationships of all kinds – colleagues, customers, suppliers, investors – to deliver results.
Your own self-awareness and emotional discipline play an increasingly bigger role in influencing these relationships for good or bad. To get the most out of the people around you, flexing your leadership style to the situation is a key skill.
The more senior you become, the greater your influence on the career progression of other and the harder it is to get useful feedback to enable you to learn and improve. The less feedback you get, the harder it is to know what is going well and what is not, and the harder it is to learn and improve.

I’m now six months into the role which has, as expected, presented me with significant challenges and my coach has been there to support me every step of the way with encouragement when I needed it, offering challenge when appropriate and simply providing affirmation whenever I’ve been hesitant or unconfident. I would recommend my coach to anyone taking on their first FD role
Tim, Senior Banker
‘I met Jess a critical juncture in my professional career; I was in the process of exiting from a banking job after 15 years in the sector and considering pivoting to a more entrepreneurial role working with smaller growth companies.
Jess coached and provided me with a systematic approach to considering my interests and strengths. This has proved invaluable in guiding my thought process and also when considering potential roles and business to work with. I have recently started working with a biotech company and feel well positioned to build a portfolio of roles with relevant companies.’
