Lloyd Wigglesworth

Lloyd specialises in working with CEOs and Chairmen who aspire to become exceptional leaders, perform at the peak of their abilities and deliver greater results for their organisation. He also prepares board directors for the top job in their organisation. He understands the complexity of the top role with the many differing responsibilities and pressures that come with high expectations.

“Lloyd has been an enormous help to me. I discuss matters and how I deal with them which I would not want to discuss with the rest of the board. I want them to see the finished article. Lloyd encourages reflection on matters to try and come up with a plan of attack. Sometimes I have gone to a coaching session wondering I have the space for it and every single time I leave thinking what a brilliant time invested it was.”

"My personal experience of what it is like to shoulder the responsibility for the performance of the organisation has helped me as an executive coach. I discovered the power of working alongside a strong coach when I was first promoted to a PLC board and found how coaching can unleash untapped personal potential and generate significant business growth. Coaching provides the confidence and structured thinking space for CEO’s to tackle the full role of leader, set aspiring goals for their organisation, team and themselves and then deliver on them."
