Phill slater

A senior level Executive Coach, business owner, organisational development practitioner and Learning & Development Consultant with more than two decades of experience working with business leaders across multiple industries in more than 20 countries. During coaching, Phill creates a safe space to challenge and help you remove barriers, build confidence, increase self-awareness and facilitate lasting change. 

Phill has operated as an Executive Coach for business leaders in the Engineering, Financial Services and Telecommunications industries. His international experience includes coaching relationships formed in Europe, USA, Central America, and The Middle East.  

As a business owner Phill knows what is required to set goals and how to devise a clear plan for achieving them. He understands the importance of self- reflection and how we all sometimes need a little help to achieve sustainable success. 

Coaching approach

Phill believes that coaching should enable you to achieve your professional and personal aspirations. It is a relationship that needs investment, expertise, authenticity, and resilience on both sides, and can be enormously rewarding as the rapport builds and achievements are realised. 

Through time spent asking questions and most importantly listening, Phill will be able to help you clearly understand your goals, agree a path towards achieving them and give the relationship strong foundations for success. It also provides and concrete expectations around what can be achieved for both parties. 

What to expect

Phill recognises the importance in his role of helping someone achieve their personal and professional goals. He never takes this privilege for granted so you can always expect him to be engaged, open and committed. From time to time, he will be challenging, ask the difficult questions and will not shy away from providing open and honest feedback. Everything he does will have one primary goal though: helping you to be successful. 

Phill uses a range of skills, techniques and behaviours including: 

  • Asking the right questions and challenging where appropriate 
  • Always being curious. Not some of the time, all the time 
  • Through the encouragement of self-reflection and the shared identification of unconscious behaviour
  • Sharing his story as a development opportunity and encouraging the coachee to share theirs.
