Glyn Evans, Total UK - “I have been stuck trying to find a clear path to a goal for a week and after a couple of hours with Mike Wilsher, Coach & Mentor for SME Leaders my head is now full of ideas. If anyone ever has a doubt on the value of a long term coach give him a try it will change your perspective.”

WHAT ANIMAL OR BIRD ILLUSTRATES EXECUTIVE FOUNDATION
An eagle:
Authoritative, not wishy washy, bold, wise, knowledgeable, focused, independent, resilient. Gliding effortlessly. Enables me to fly up high taking me out of day-to-day drudgery to think longer term with broader horizons and greater opportunities. A global view. Panoramic vision. Full visibility down below. Targeted. A killing machine, yet beautiful.
ROBBIE STANIFORTH, TONY LOCK, GWEN KINSEY, VIC MARLAND, COLIN MATTINSON

An owl:
Wise. Able to turn its head 360 degrees. Calm, very unruffled. Patient. When necessary swoops down to collect its prey.
DARREN LARVIN, DAN MORRIS

A rhino:
Full on approach.
