Adrian Kingsford

Biography

Adrian understands the power of taking action first hand.

Whether it's executive coaching, team coaching, business strategy, leadership coherence, boardroom dynamics, organisational structure, getting something from A to B (or Z) in a structured way, being a sounding board, giving someone a good listening to, or simply being a shoulder to lean (or cry) on, Adrian's transparent approach and straight-forward advice has proved invaluable to his colleagues, business partners and clients; his 'professional friends', as he proudly and respectfully calls them.

Adrian prides himself on being a no-nonsense, straight-talking, down to earth people person, respectfully saying it how he sees it, putting the needs of others first, with the right blend of empathy, humility, questions, tools, techniques, experience and passion to move things forward. He loves helping people progress and succeed; especially seeing the lightbulbs go on and those breakthrough moments when everything clicks into place.

With a progressive 25 year career in technology, services, management and leadership, Adrian has worked as a Leader Coach with business owners, entrepreneurs, executives, boards, leadership teams and key individuals, to unleash their potential and make profound breakthroughs that have been hugely impactful to them, their organisations, their culture and their performance.

Adrian can help you identify where you're stuck and help you take the necessary action to move everything and everyone forward. Working together, we'll clarify where you are now, where you want to get to, and define who needs to do what by when, aligning people, process and technology, and enabling better outcomes.
