The Alliance delivers coaching that makes a tangible difference to the performance and resilience of individuals, teams and their organisations. We are a group of experienced, successful and inspiring business coaches united by a passion for coaching and by our shared values and approach. The fundamental belief that guides all our work is that aware and insightful people are able to achieve breakthrough performance with extraordinary and satisfying results. Our approach is coaching-led because we believe that the most effective and sustainable change comes from within, rather than by change determined or imposed from outside, and that coaching raises awareness and stimulates insights.
We facilitate the creation of an environment in which people think for themselves, accessing the best of their own and others’ knowledge, skills and experience. We are delighted to be able to work with the winner of the Precious 'Start-up Business of the Year' award to support them in their journey to future business success. www.alliancecoaching.co.uk
