Coaching: it’s all Greek to me

Was Ancient Greek philosopher, Socrates, the first coach? His famous quotation, I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think,” could have been written for any modern coaching…

Duncan has helped me enormously to unlock my potential as a school leader. His ability to listen actively and create challenging conversations in a safe environment has enabled me to develop and grow into the role. As an exemplary leader of learning himself he is able to offer a unique fusion of role model, mentor and coach.

Oliver Proctor, Headteacher St George’s College North, Buenos Aires, Argentina

School leadership has unique challenges and is frequently a lonely experience. Having somebody not only with experience and knowledge but also an outside perspective as a mentor/coach is extremely valuable and my sessions with Duncan have been very positive and useful.

I first met Duncan when he was the headteacher of a school I worked at. His supportive nature, active listening and open question style provided support and room for my growth. This is why I reached out to Duncan for a coaching conversation when I was starting my first headship as I knew he would support me in being self-directed in the next steps of my career.

Gareth Turnbull-Jones, Headteacher, Landmark International School, Cambridge, England

Duncan is a highly skilled coach who makes people feel at ease. Duncan asked helpful and insightful questions which allowed me to explore and reflect. I have really valued the sessions and feel much clearer around actions and next steps.

Duncan is an insightful and empathetic coach, his coaching is dynamic and powerful.

Mandy Hawkes, Community Food Manager, The Active Wellbeing Society

Working with Duncan was genuinely transformational – his ability to really listen was exceptional, followed by some very incisive questions. His perception of the many varied issues we explored extended far further than the educational arena we began with, and my thinking around my new venture has matured and focussed far more quickly than I imagined it would. I would wholeheartedly recommend that you set up a coaching session to see where his questions take your thinking.
