Executive Coach - UK
In the last 15 years, Baz has coached hundreds of senior leaders. Having been a board director himself, he gives these individuals the hard skills to understand the context in which they lead and the soft skills to increase their impact and effectiveness, particularly in complex and volatile times.
Baz held three board level directional positions within private sector businesses, including a FTSE 500 organisation. Having worked for British and US businesses, he has directly managed operations across Europe, Asia and America in both manufacturing and service industries.
Style / Approach
Baz works mostly with senior leaders, aspiring senior leaders and newly appointed leaders dealing with complexity and ambiguity. He supports them in developing their leadership capacity, adding to their repertoire of responses in the situations they face and building their personal presence, resilience and impact. He helps them shift from ego-centric ‘heroes’ to eco-centric ‘hosts’.
Baz has been coaching for over 15 years and has over 5000 hours of coaching practice to date. In the public sector he coaches senior NHS leaders and their Boards and senior civil servants, coaching up to the level of the Permanent Private Secretary. In the private sector his clients include BP, BT and Virgin Media and his third sector experience includes the RNLI, MacMillan Cancer Care and ActionAid.

“Baz’s coaching has undoubtedly helped me to navigate the challenging transition into my senior role more effectively. His insight, support and challenge has helped me to acclimatise to the greater levels of uncertainty and complexity that have accompanied the VP role. This has enabled me to be less focused on my operational role and enthused me to more fully enact my corporate role, with greater emphasis in working strategically alongside my peers.” – Alex White, VP, P&O Cruises
