What they say…
How The Pipeline Coaching has developed
The ripple effects of the Pipeline and its Coaching now reaches far and wide across the Globe and throughout the UK. Today The Pipeline and their Coaches are working with Global businesses and their leaders, men and women as we help them build and lead high performing diverse teams and we’re doing this across time zones, cultures and languages because there’s shared desire and purpose.
We are working in the board room with Global businesses and Executives who want to be more diverse, agile, inclusive, innovative and successful. Graduates of our programmes continue to engage our Coaches as they navigate their promotions to C suite, CEO or latest major transition. We are working with business leaders as they navigate the immensity of mergers and acquisitions, the uncertainty and need to care for their people on the shop floor.
We are working with senior leaders at the heart of Government and the civil service as they face and work through some of the greatest challenges our country has faced in several generations.
Introducing The Pipeline Coaches
All of our Coaches are professionally trained, qualified, supervised and insured. All of us have had successful careers in the private, public or third sectors. We’re experienced in applying robust approaches in our Coaching and have a host of tools including psychometrics in our kit bags.
More importantly our Coaches are curious, we love learning and are committed to ongoing professional development. Perhaps most importantly we are committed to the Purpose of the Pipeline, originally the small group of women and men who believe they can change the world for the better.
