Coaching for charity leaders
Rob Legge works with individual senior managers (and their teams if appropriate) to identify and clarify challenging objectives, projects or personnel issues and help the individual find practical ways to succeed. Together we explore and identify the obstacles to success and how they will overcome them.
Rob is able to deliver coaching in both a cost and time effective way using a mixture of face to face, telephone and Skype. Current work includes providing confidential support to senior staff in Belfast and the Greater Birmingham region, all at times to suit their busy schedules. The impact is significant and leads to greater morale, confidence and most importantly action.

focus on coaching
"I have found my coaching sessions with Rob invaluable. He has supported me to navigate my way through tricky issues and to maintain my focus on achieving the organisation’s strategic goals. Rob’s approach with me is a combination of supportive and challenging; and always based on his exceptional ability to listen. One thing that sets Rob apart from other mentor or coaches is that he uses his wealth of experience and knowledge to motivate rather than intimidate. I always leave our sessions feel more confident and in control with a clear plan of action. I cannot recommend Rob highly enough".
"Coaching sessions with Rob have been transformational for me. During a difficult time he was able to help me find my own answers to challenges, focus on my organisation’s strategic priorities and develop in my leadership. His empathy and understanding are backed up with a wealth of knowledge and experience of voluntary sector leadership. The space to reflect with a coach is something I really value as a CEO and Rob’s support has been invaluable for me and for my organisation".
"I have been receiving coaching from Rob since March 19. During this time I have received 1-1 coaching sessions at locations that benefit me. Rob is always early, well prepared and tuned in. Our 90 minute sessions consists of discussions that enable me to move forward in my practice as a senior manager.
He is able to challenge my thinking and actions during the sessions, which in turn allows me to think through possible options and ways forward, during and away from sessions. He is intuitive, empathic, knowledgeable and I value the personal and professional senior management experience and skills he is able to bring to the room. I can pinpoint several pinnacle light bulb moments during the times we have worked together, that have had a direct impact on my attitude towards the problem and have been directly responsible for my actions as a manager.
Rob provides the space, quietness and time to think and reflect and has certainly provided an opportunity for me to grow as a manager. This can only benefit the organisation; all of the staff, our client groups and other stakeholders."

"Rob is everything a great coach needs to be - organised, process oriented, knowledgeable, experienced and most of all - wants you to succeed. There's no doubt I've improved personally and professionally from Rob's coaching and I
"Rob delivered coaching for myself and fellow trustees. His open and honest approach enabled us to positively reflect on our strengths and areas for improvement. He helped us to implement practical changes to our ways of working and as a direct result has meant we have become more focussed and strategic in our thinking as a trustee board.
I also benefited from one to one coaching with Rob and found this valuable in helping me to look at how I could adapt and personally develop as chairperson. I would highly recommend Rob for his coaching."
