Mission Briefing:

Leadership At a Higher Level

When an aircraft has been in maintenance for an extended period, before it can be returned to the front line, there’ll be a test flight. The objectives for this flight are worked out meticulously before it takes place; what to test, what results to expect, what to do if anything goes wrong. It’s a short event, focused on a successful outcome – getting the aircraft back in the skies for operations.

Welcome to the Test Flight Programme.
It’s a short, targeted, high-impact executive coaching experience crafted specifically for leaders like you. In the fast-paced landscape of corporate leadership, staying ahead requires not just hard skills but strategic insight and clarity. This is your chance to boost your leadership capabilities and climb to new professional heights.


Identify, Focus, Execute

Just like a real test flight, we’ll identify the objectives and outcomes we want:

Your journey begins with a deep dive into the core issue impeding your professional trajectory. Pinpointing this is crucial for a targeted approach.

Gain Laser Focus:

Distractions in the executive realm are akin to taking your eye off the ball in a real test flight. We’ll help you navigate through the month, sharpening your focus on what truly matters for your leadership journey.

Take Action:

With clarity and focus, action becomes your ally. Implementing swift, decisive moves ensures you’re not just circling, but on a deliberate vector towards tangible results.

Highly recommend Garry for his exceptional coaching. Garry’s strategic insights have been instrumental in shaping my approach in executing my new role, leading to tangible improvements in my thinking, decision-making and leadership.

Director, Client Innovation Centre, IBM South Africa

Garry has been really helpful to me as a coach . He is listens carefully, creates confidence and gives ad-hoc advice and feedback which he likes to reinforce in the following sessions.
It is quite impressive how quickly he has been able to identify points that could help me to improve considering different views and angles together.
He understands very well how large companies move from the organizational point of view and no doubt even more at C-Suite level.
Very organized and with a clear structured topic in every session, he has also made recommendations on readings related to topics worked. Very useful as well.
Frankly speaking, I am looking forward to work with him more and have those high level conversations as soon as possible. Thank you Garry. Really appreciated.

I’ve been working with Garry for around 3 months, primarily focusing on strategic thinking and executive performance. Garry is great to work with and tailors the sessions to the individual, for me allowing the conversation to flow so we can get to the heart of an issue.

I’ve found his expertise and insight invaluable, providing me with tools and a structure to elevate my thinking and overall performance.

I would highly recommend making contact to see if you can work together.

Paul Rixham
Head of Legal and General, JLL Property and Asset Management

I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for the incredible support and guidance Garry provided me with as my coach. Working with him to develop my strategy thinking and personal growth has been an immensely rewarding journey, and I’m truly appreciative of his dedication and expertise.

His coaching style is truly transformative. He have a remarkable ability to challenge my thinking, push me outside of my comfort zone, and inspire me to reach new heights. Through thought-provoking discussions and targeted exercises, he helped me uncover insights about myself and my approach to problem-solving that I wouldn’t have discovered on my own.

A good coach is characterized by being a good, active listener and asking the right questions. Garry has exactly these qualities, which makes coaching so valuable to me. The time with him was very pleasant from day one and absolutely trustworthy. His feedback, combined with professional knowledge and literature recommendations, have had a lasting influence on my daily performance in business. I definitely leave the coaching stronger and what I have learned is applied sustainably. Thank you, Garry, for your time, your valuable input and the food for thought that you regularly gave me.
