Be the change you want to see in the world

Mahatma Gandhi

These famous words from Mahatma Gandhi are the essence of growth and development at all levels in organisations. We adopt a strengths based approach, and this means that when you work with us we ask different kinds of questions……..

First we inquire about the vision of what might be?

Then comes the question…
What are the possibilities? this leads to focusing on what will be!

Our Leadership Development programmes are designed with the changing context of the business world in the foreground. Our flagship programme, Leadership Compass© has been called “SatNav for Leaders“.

‘Leadership is based on inspiration, not domination; on co-operation not intimidation’

William Arthur Wood


Coaching with a tangible Return on Investment is what SWAN coaches are about. With individuals and with teams each engagement is unique – because people are unique.

What are the possibilities? this leads to focusing on what will be!

‘Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure’

Individual Coaching

When a SWAN coach works with an individual, the orientation is developmental in nature and transformational in outcome. Supporting the individual to be the best they can be- today and tomorrow is the essence of sustainability.

Team Coaching

Have you ever wondered why groups of highly capable individuals fail to perform together effectively as a team? To be a high performing team requires a degree of intimacy and focus that is only achieved when the team can make meaning of its purpose together.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence is then, is not an act, but a habit.

– Aristotle

First 90 Days Transition Coaching for Leaders

Making the successful transition to a new role How long do you get to prove yourself in a new job? Taking on a new role is an opportunity, a chance to start afresh and to bring about change in an organisation.

What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning – T. S. Eliot
