Transform your leadership capabilities among tightly curated groups of peers, focussing on individual and collective challenges.

Designed and delivered with coach and author Hilary Gallo — Coaching Groups provide a highly curated and transformative space for founders and other senior leaders to build self-awareness, while sharing and solving their most urgent challenges.

Participants join a cross-organisational group with up to ten members. Groups meets every six weeks for a four-hour session, facilitated by Hilary. In this high-quality and confidential learning space; leadership, business and broader challenges are tabled for discussion and collaborative exploration. At the close of each session actions are committed to, and accountability created. Each group is tightly curated to reflect career stage, and to avoid competition.

Who joins Coaching Groups?

Participants are drawn from the top of organisations, large and small — global businesses like The Guardian, Secret Escapes and Farfetch, fast-growth creative practices like Koto and SODA and cultural institutions like the V&A. All are open in their mindset and outlook, with current groups curated for founders, execs, department heads and newly promoted leaders.
