Would you expect your favourite athlete or sports team to consistently perform at their best without the support of a coach?

“John Muranka coached me outside work. But, at
work, colleagues noticed; ‘big breakthroughs'."

Sara Scott Operations Director, Propaganda

Could you be expected to perform at your peak without the support of one?

John Muranka's executive coaching programme is designed to facilitate change and continuous improvement.

The coaching programme helps senior executives to bring about effective actions, performance improvements and personal growth - all leading to better business results for your organisation.

It involves understanding and capitalising on an individual’s strengths, as well as recognising and overcoming their weaknesses.

The major goals and benefits of executive coaching as defined by Zeus & Skiffington.


Interpersonal competencies:

  • Gain knowledge and insight into themselves and the organisation, which allows executives to become more flexible and versatile
  • Acknowledge and understand feelings and apply them more effectively in the workplace to improve and develop working relationships
  • Work through blockages and resistance to change
  • Recognise where previous strengths (e.g. an independent, autonomous style) have become a liability (e.g. in team work)
  • Recognise and effectively manage stress
  • Deal with conflict, both personal and with colleagues
  • Modify interpersonal style (e.g. moving from a competitive to a collaborative stance)
  • Develop trusting relationships with clients and colleagues
  • Develop advanced communication skills:
    • Maximise verbal and non-verbal interactions
    • Listen
    • Give feedback (especially praise)
    • Understand, predict and alter patterns of communication

Organisational capabilities:

  • Direct and support organisational change - a Harvard Review survey found that ‘dealing better with change’ was becoming the number one skills focus for coaches
  • Improve ability to manage an organisation, for instance strategic planning, negotiation and problem solving
  • Lead re-engineering, restructuring or downsizing initiatives
  • Increase productivity
  • Strategically reposition the organisation in the market place
