Welcome to Toby Ingham coaching for executives, individuals and groups
There are plenty of people and web sites offering coaching advice and it can be difficult to know where to look or who to pick.
I have put a lot of information and links on my site to help you think about what you want to do next. I welcome your questions and any feedback you might have for me about the site and I look forward to hearing from you.
A coaching relationship offers a confidential place to:
- focus upon the things you want and need to achieve and
- to understand how you might stop yourself from doing so
Coaching to achieve your goals
If we are serious about changing the effect we have both on ourselves and the people and teams we work with, then coaching offers a uniquely supportive relationship through which powerful transformational change is possible.
The coaching relationships I develop:
- are confidential, ethical and professional relationships, in which a full review of your goals, objectives and challenges is possible,
- allow for a careful understanding of how experience shapes our lives and working styles,
- provide an ability to carefully work to pursue objectives with confidence and direction.
My coaching background
Since 1999 I have coached individuals and worked extensively in FTSE100 businesses in sectors including:
- investment banking,
- retail and law firms
I help my coaching clients to achieve objectives that add significant value to their lives and businesses, and have built up a reputation for helping clients to develop their interpersonal skills and to better understand their impact on others.
The strength of my coaching offering is in my talent for helping people reconnect with what energises them. This has been built up through my corporate business background and my analytic training.
Before training as an executive coach, I ran business development and marketing departments latterly for Aegis plc and Hanover Executive.
Coaching Clients include:
AstraZeneca, Johnson and Johnson, ITV plc, Landesbank Baden-Württemberg, Morgan Stanley, Dresdner Kleinwort, BSkyB, BDO, Centrica, Kenneth Green Associates, Mediacom, Mindshare, L’Oreal, WCRS, Carat, CMS Cameron McKenna, Affiliated FM, FM Global, GSK, Lancome, Central Office of Information, the Learning Skills Council, Deutsche Bank, Commerzbank, Royal Bank of Scotland, The Carlyle Group, SABMiller plc, The Crown Estate, BNP Paribas, Office Depot, Wolseley, Garnier and Marks and Spencer.
I graduated in English (BA Hons) from Goldsmith’s College, London and have an MA from London University in Modern English Studies. I hold an MA from City University in analytical psychology. I am an APECS Accredited Executive Coach, I have completed a rigorous and lengthy professional analytic training and am registered with the UKCP and the AIP and the Guild of Psychotherapists.
Coaching to achieve your goals: for individuals and groups
To deliver a high quality performance you need
- clarity about objectives; what do you want to achieve?
- a thorough understanding of contexts; what challenges do you face?
- a meaningful and realistic grasp of the way you and your team may undermine your efforts.
You need a clear goal
If you are going to achieve a goal, whatever that might be, you need to be clear about what it is:
- what will it look like when you get there?
- how will you know you’ve got there?
Executive coaching and life coaching
Since 1999 I have been working with individuals and organisations to help them think through their leadership, life, work and business practices. Working to enable them to reconnect with what sparks their imagination, energy and enthusiasm.
I have a lot of experience to offer you.
The capacity to reach greater potential can be derailed by various factors, some which are easier to grasp than others.
I have pursued the questions of both what promotes and what inhibits our progress through a combination of
- in-depth psychological study
- training and
- business experience
In all cases I work to create a better connection with what sparks your energy and enthusiasm for life.
Gaining clarity about how we live, work and relate to others, allied to a focused understanding of what inspires us,and what we want to achieve, can enable us to provide a secure base for future success.
