Leadership coaching

Leadership coaching unlocks your potential, and the potential of everyone around you

Be an authentic leader

Great leaders are authentic and inspirational.

Although they need numerous practical skills, the characteristic that defines them is the natural confidence that comes from understanding themselves and those around them. Confidence makes them genuinely influential, charismatic and empowering. They become better leaders because they recognise the leadership that’s innate in their team, and they have the confidence to bring it out.

Typical outcomes of Leadership Coaching

I work with leaders and executives of all abilities up to C Level. They come to me expecting to learn about what makes great leaders:

Enabling collaboration

Igniting your team’s collective thinking power and wisdom

Executive presence

Discovering the confidence behind gravitas and presence

Communicating with impact

Delivering a message that’s clear, engaging, and persuasive

Sustained high performance

Maintaining resilience no matter how fast the rate of change

Change begins with 3 steps

1- Discovery

Book a 15-minute call to see if we’re a good fit

2- Goals

A first session to clarify your goals and priorities

3- Actions

An action plan to get to where you want to be

Once we have a plan, our first step is to identify your ‘critical move’. That’s the one key change that has a domino effect on other aspects of your career and leadership potential.

It’s the change that has the biggest effect for the least effort.

How does it work?

Face to face

We can meet face to face in Oxford. Alternatively, I can travel to a location of your choice.


Video-conferencing facilities allow me to reach clients anywhere in the world.


Alternatively, phone coaching an option that works better than you’d expect.

What others say

“Marien’s approach has been nuanced and subtle, gently opening up new ways of seeing and thinking, and therefore, new opportunities and choices. It has been invaluable to me because it has been very practical.

“I have particularly benefited from understanding better how to nurture my innate resilience and capacity for change; and how to better manage the many maelstroms of senior leadership. This is as powerful as it is liberating.

“I recommend you to work with Marien without hesitation. I like to study the art of leadership and management. But this coaching has been uniquely insightful in how to practice it.” Leigh Daynes – Executive Director, Doctors of the World UK
