In this fast-paced, technology driven age we often lack time. We sometimes get in our own way and sometimes we need to stop and think in order to progress in the most effective way.
Our coaching and development solutions create the space on a one-to-one, or group basis to allow individuals to develop and grow their thinking, skills, knowledge and approach.
Whether working with individuals or teams, the first thing we do is to get a clear understanding about the ‘shift’ required – in other words the what, why and how. When we have fully understood these, we introduce the best models, research and tools, and then create the space for the individual (or group) to try, practise and apply the techniques so they can integrate them into their approach.
All of our coaches and trainers come with great track records, qualifications and extensive commercial and business experience. They quickly get to the core of the matter and provide challenge, reflections and insights in order to create the ‘shift’ and outcomes that are desired.

“I enjoyed the whole coaching journey. From the initial meeting where I was asked to articulate where I thought I was in terms of my current working environment and the challenges I was facing – with too many plates spinning, right through to my current role and work life balance. The opportunity to share my experiences in an open and safe environment without judgement was hugely beneficial.”Senior Leader – Finance Sector
“My CDS coach has helped me understand many issues that were affecting my work and personal life to the point now where I am much happier and delivering results I didn’t think were possible. She is practical and resourceful as well as caring and inspiring and I would, without hesitation, recommend her to help anyone who was looking for coach.”Senior Programme Manager – Energy Sector
“My CDS coach provided me with the opportunity to bounce ideas around, acting as an off-the-wall sparring partner to generate ideas which led to “eureka moments” post the session. I valued the confidential, independent, non-judgemental nature of the conversations.”Head of Technology – Finance Sector
