The coaching services we offer fall into three broad categories: leadership and management coaching, group coaching and workplace coaching.

Leadership and management coaching

Individual coaching with a focus on personal performance, development, career aspirations and goals, people leadership and management.

Often used to help individuals meet the expectations of their current role, to enhance the impact of their role or to prepare them for their next promotion.

Group coaching

Taking the best parts from action learning (collaboratively working on real issues while retaining a practical focus) we add in a structured approach which helps to develop the mindsets and skills of the group.

Either as a stand-alone activity or as part of a development programme, the group coaching sessions enable people to fast track the transfer of learning. We do this by working with the group to apply concepts and ideas to their presenting issues which delivers results and builds their adaptive capacity for the future.

This is particularly effective with management teams as the insights and skills that they gain can be used in other interactions such as joint problem solving, strategy development or even conflict resolution.

Workplace coaching

People often leave training sessions with the best of intentions and a well-crafted ‘to do list’.

However, for some topics such as Safety Coaching and Lean Improvements, there is nothing more impactful than coaching support in the workplace to practice skills and apply tools and techniques.

Client feedback
“As a business we’ve built a strong relationship with 2macs over the years. They have provided us with HR advice and support, leadership facilitation and coaching. As we have a small team, I work regularly with Steve and Audrey who feel part of our extended team. They are both easy to work with, offering excellent support and challenging when required to get to the best outcomes. They are readily available whether it be for a quick query or developing solutions to more complex situations – there is never a stupid question!”
Andrea Taylor
Head of People and Experience at Fentimans
Audrey has been coaching me for over 6 years and has been a fundamental part of my leadership and development journey. Without Audrey’s support and guidance I would not be in the role I am currently in, and I continue to be impressed by her compassion, constructive challenge and ability to guide me to be the best I can be.
Amanda Venner
Interim Executive Director of People & OD at Gateshead NHS Foundation Trust
In simple terms, Audrey saved my life! When I was first introduced to Audrey I had recently stepped into an interim Senior Role within an NHS Trust, during the height of the Covid pandemic. I was new to the NHS and although I could bring professional knowledge, skills and experience from my earlier career, they hadn’t quite prepared me for the challenges I was about to face. I often felt overwhelmed, was struggling in the weeds and really didn’t know how to best move forward and that’s where Audrey stepped in! She helped me to reframe my position, encouraged me to take a minute to step back and consider the best way forward, access the skills that I had within my team and leave the ‘perfectionist’ at the door. With Audrey’s support I was able to navigate through that period, with my sanity intact, and ultimately move into a permanent position within our People & OD senior management team, that perfectly aligns with the work I love to do – thank you so much, Audrey!

Head of Leadership, OD & Staff Experience at Gateshead NHS Foundation Trust
For years I have struggled with imposter syndrome, something which I feel has held me back in applying for promotion opportunities at work. With the support of coaching from Audrey, I was able to work through this challenge and succeeded at interview for my dream job as an NHS Director! Huge thank you to Audrey.
