Graham Alexander

Graham works with CEOs, Boards and senior executives of the world’s leading companies and organisations to enhance their individual and collective effectiveness and to lead change.

In 1979 he brought the coaching technology of the ‘Inner Game’ to Europe. This methodology was developed throughout the 1980s and played a large part in bringing management and executive coaching on to corporate agendas.

Over the course of the last 30 years, he has coached many senior executives of FTSE 100 and Fortune 500 companies and their equivalents and has worked extensively around the world in all market sectors.

Coaching Specialities

Graham formed the Alexander Corporation (now Alexander) to enable the world’s leading organisations to release and focus the human potential of their most valued asset, their people.

His work enables senior executives to understand and address a wide range of issues that relate to the high-performance execution of corporate strategy. He is particularly expert at straddling the domains of strategy, leadership, culture, team and individual effectiveness.

Graham’s ‘tool-kit’ and extensive experience and credibility, enable senior executives to execute personal and collective change. These areas are often beyond the organisation’s capability to address, but are critical to business success.

Commercial Experience

Graham began his career with IBM, focusing on line management and management development. Having been seconded to work on Operation Trident, a programme specifically designed to provide young people with the skills and experience to manage life after school, he began researching and practising a variety of approaches to human performance and learning.

“My quest is to maximise performance, development and fulfillment in people and organisations everywhere”

Personal Interests

Graham’s interests include music of all types, sport (particularly tennis), philosophy, psychology, reading, theatre / cinema, sunshine and ‘loafing’. He is also a talented photographer. Indeed, many of the photographs on this website have been taken by Graham.
