What our clients say

Jane Farrell has a deep knowledge and understanding of the issues and tensions facing complex organisations and a knack of getting to the heart of these quickly. Jane focuses on making positive change happen. She is one of the most inspirational women I’ve worked with.

Kristina Glenn MBE
Director at
Cripplegate Foundation and Islington Giving

Jane has been my mentor and safe space for the past 10 years (please amend if it’s been more/less!) she has guided me through being CEO of a growing, values led women and children’s charity. Jane was there when the going was tough, when I have felt I had no skills, was messing up all the relationships or just wanted to be told you can do this. Jane is forever strategic, looking at the long game and helping shape ideas into practical reality. A huge thank-you for all your support and for the support EW has given to many of our leaders, helping them grow through mentoring and leadership programmes. It is not by chance that 3 of our senior staff have gone onto head up other charities – inspired and developed in no little part by EW.

Executive Coaching FAQs

What is executive coaching?

Executive coaching is a tool designed for people in managerial roles with the purpose of developing and achieving certain goals. These are defined at the beginning of the process and are usually related to the improvement of behaviours for better professional performance and satisfaction. As a result, executives, and therefore, organisations, can become more effective.

What are the benefits of executive coaching?

There are many benefits to executive coaching, from personal ones for the individual undertaking the sessions and ones that relate to the company as a whole. For example, the practice can help identify strengths and weaknesses, reach managerial and organisational goals, and boost confidence and internal talent development. Executive coaching is extremely useful in times of structural changes and can foster better company culture.

What’s the difference between executive and leadership coaching?

While executive and leadership coaching complement each other, they are still two distinctly different tools. Firstly, the former will usually be used among C-suite people, whereas the latter can be employed for any manager. Leadership coaching also focuses more on gaining awareness of their management style, promoting strong communication skills and encouraging impactful leadership. Executive coaching, on the other hand, revolves around organisational goals.
