Mission Briefing:

Embark on Your Structured Journey to Elite Leadership

In the RAF, everyone knew the ‘rules of the game’.

This included the jobs you had to have and the performance level you had to achieve before you could achieve promotion.

As well as the hard skills of flying, fixing or supporting aircraft, you knew what soft skills you had to develop and what additional responsibilities you had to accept. Those who knew the game and played it well, moved up. Those who knew the game and chose not to play it, stayed where they were.

Those who didn’t know the rules of the game?

They were in no-man’s land. Introducing the World-Class Executive Programme, a carefully crafted one-to-one coaching experience for those who aspire to reach the pinnacle of corporate leadership.

This programme is an elite mission to understand the rules of the game. It’s crafted to transform accomplished leaders into world-class executives. Prepare to engage with the four pillars essential for a leader of global calibre.

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. I’m always looking forward to our sessions. Grateful for the transformative experience! 🙂

Arno de Beer
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.

Borja Basa
Head of Portfolio Services, JLL EMEA

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.
