Helping you achieve sustainable breakthrough performances and tangible results – GUARANTEED
I'm Mark Russell and I played Rugby Union for England A, Harlequins and Blackheath between 1991 and 1998.
Sports, business, life - it's a game played largely in the mind! My experiences playing sport at the top level combined with my knowledge of emotional intelligence and strengths has taught me a MASSIVE amount about life and business success. These invaluable lessons can help executives like you, be more successful in a complex and fast-moving world.
It's about learning experiences that are both relevant and effective. The focus is always on practical learning to develop your emotional intelligence so that you are aware of what's going on around you, what your objectives are and how to leverage on your own individual style, strengths and developmental needs.
Sport can teach us many profound lessons about life and business success.
If You Are:
- Depressed at how tough and lonely being a top executive can be?
- Burnt-out, frustrated or bored with what you're doing at work?
- Disappointed that you're not achieving outstanding results you choose - greater productivity, faster promotions, bigger income - and doing that quickly?
- Feeling guilty that you haven't got a better work/life harmony and you and your family are growing apart unfulfilled?
- Frustrated at not fully understanding your strengths and the self-confidence to use them to get more of the hard results your efforts deserve?
- Worried about the cold truths that others won't tell you, the things that are obstacles in your way, slowing you down or stopping you moving forward?
- Not going any where with your career? Ambitions a long way off? Confidence taking a pummeling?

"I found the 360° element of the emotional intelligence assessment incredibly useful in a coaching context. Gathering feedback from my colleagues helped me explore the implications of my emotional intelligence and provided robust, objective data to aid my coaching conversations."

"The Action Learning Mastermind Group enabled me to focus on creating and implementing a plan to exit gracefully from my business when I reached retirement age. I used the Mastermind meetings to help me explore building and documenting an exit plan via a structured management buy-out. Implementation of the plan facilitated my exit whilst leaving a management and leadership team in place capable of securing the future of the business and taking it to the next level. Other unexpected (and welcome!) benefits of the Mastermind programme were the strength of the bond formed with the other participants and the flexible approach to the delivery.
This programme has probably saved my company from potential oblivion on my retirement."
Chris Munton – Former Managing Director, Turnpower Services Limited in Sutton, Surrey
"I have been in business was over 25 years running my own business for much of that time. I’ve never really had any kind of performance appraisal so I saw the Strengthscope© assessment as a way of getting off the treadmill for a bit to focus on me! The assessment confirmed some things I already knew about myself but was also incredibly revealing, especially the 360 element. It has allowed me to identify the sources of my greatest energy at work, as well as my potential performance derailers. Through coaching, I now know how to use this knowledge to develop my leadership skills, influence stakeholders more effectively and build a personal brand based on my unique profile."
Simon Osborne of Oasis Graphics in Cookham, West Berkshire
