Coaching and Advisory Services

Helping business leaders achieve even greater success



Executive Coaching

Our coaching services are geared for executives and business leaders who want to improve their capabilities, embed more effective behaviours and deliver even better results. At the start of the engagement, Stuart will work with you to develop specific, measurable objectives and then work you and selected colleagues and stakeholders to turn those objectives into reality.


You will meet regularly to discuss progress, review feedback from others and agree further next step actions. Stuart’s role will include acting as an accountability partner to you and keeping you focused on your goals and objectives, sharing ideas, concepts and frameworks for you to consider and helping you to work through issues to find the best way forward.


Typical coaching outcomes:

Improve your strategy management capabilities


Strengthen relationships with colleagues and key stakeholders

Shape, influence and make better decisions

Grow the commitment of people to your strategic vision

Improve your personal productivity and time management

Develop the skills and capabilities of your people

Accelerate execution and enhance accountability across your team

In addition to your regular progress meetings, you will have unlimited email and phone access to Stuart. In addition, he can attend meetings and shadow you to review your behaviours in action as well as seeking feedback and support from selected colleagues and stakeholders.


In other words, we will work in a genuine partnership to help you achieve your goals!

Advisory Services

It can be lonely at the top of an organisation. Even your closest colleagues can pull their punches and simply tell you what they think you want to hear – even on your most difficult situations.

Using more than 20 years of strategy management experience, Stuart Cross acts as a trusted advisor to business leaders of multinational corporations as well as medium-sized enterprises, giving them candid, confidential and independent feedback, support and advice.

Stuart will help you to develop alternative solutions, generate ideas, understand risks and make better and faster decisions. Having led more than 100 strategy, coaching and performance improvement engagements right across the world, Stuart will help you take a step back, look at the bigger picture and plot the best way forward.

Whether it’s a strategic discussion at one of your regular agenda-free meetings or an urgent call to resolve a specific issue, Stuart will ask the right questions to help you frame your biggest issues and share the best approach to work out the optimal solutions.


Stuart will be there to give you an undiluted exchange of ideas and opinions, providing his own views freely, but also helping you to shape your own thinking and conclusions. In short, he will help you develop the ideas and actions you need to both accelerate business growth and to help you build your own leadership confidence, capability and performance.

“I have worked with Stuart Cross for over a decade. Stuart has always helped me to think and act differently, and that is the key to innovation in any leadership role.”
