Executive Coaching

Whether you are focused on attaining an individual career goal, achieving success with a team project, or are going through a time of transition or return to work after a break, executive coaching can support you in achieving your ambitions via targeted and skilled conversations with an expert coach. Our coaches can help prepare you for career changes, to help manage conflict or crisis and to enhance your personal performance.

Diana Jervis Read

Diana is a London based business/life coach, group trainer and counsellor. Her background includes over 20 years of directing PR and marketing consultancies and she uses this experience to help individuals reach their goals much more quickly, enhancing job satisfaction and motivation. 

Her experience and huge satisfaction is in helping people with any of the following:

  • Clarifying their life purpose, values, motivation and job satisfaction
  • Maximise personal productivity to make more time available and reach their goals faster than they would without a coach
  • Work life balance, stress reduction, assertiveness and dealing with anxiety
  • Increase self awareness, sometimes using DISC psychometric profiling: explaining each individual’s coping techniques in 3 scenarios (in private, at work and under stress) including strengths, weaknesses, fears, drivers, management style, value to organisation, possible growth areas, implications.  This usually clarifies actions and obstacles that need to be mastered and fast tracks progress
  • Relationship building, both creating immediate impact and sustaining long term deeper relationships, again using profiling knowledge
  • Sustainable change management
  • Individual or group training in:
  • people management, leadership and teamwork skills
  • conflict prevention and resolution
  • time management

All of which make any candidate all the more confident and impressive!

Diana offers ‘mates rates’ for Stopgap candidates, and won’t charge if no progress is achieved.

Nick Thistleton

Nick’s coaching is the culmination of his eclectic career to date, as he brings together the service of his clients, his creativity, his own entrepreneurial leadership journey and his deep interest in both the human and commercial side of business.

Nick began his career as a professional pianist, working largely in musical theatre in London’s West End, as well as making various TV appearances with the likes of Lionel Richie and Gary Barlow. For much of this chapter, he moonlighted as a strategy consultant with Spectrum Strategy Consultants, working with large international clients to devise critical new media strategies as the importance of the internet emerged. Nick then spent 3 years with a small investment company, initially tasked with analysing early dotcom era business plans and later operating in a business development role for a diverse range of portfolio companies.

In 2003, he co-founded the karaoke company Lucky Voice with Martha Lane Fox, where he continues in a part-time executive role after 13 years as Managing Director. In growing Lucky Voice to become synonymous with high-quality karaoke experiences in the UK and increasingly overseas, Nick created a multi-faceted business which encompasses high-street leisure operations, international franchising, extensive proprietary technology and a B2C digital subscription offering.

Nick’s constant focus on self-development during this period, and his consequent evolution from self-confessed grumpy autocrat to enlightened motivational leader, inspired his move into coaching and continues to inform his approach. His particular passion is helping executives to both discover and implement their own authentic model of effective leadership.
