About Us

Are you struggling to grow your business, make it more profitable, or take it to the next stage of its evolution?

You may have considered it’s worth talking to people who specialise in doing just that.

At Spring Leadership, we really understand how to help businesses like yours. In the past we kept seeing ambitious but frustrated leaders employ a coach, a consultant or a leadership trainer. They'd become evangelical about a new initiative - and then see the much needed change stall beyond the senior team. Their vision was not quite implemented and old habits re-established themselves.

We started Spring Leadership back in 2013 because we wanted to make a difference and have an impact with businesses who wanted to do things differently, and better.

Our Partnership

Following our years of working together we’ve cultivated a special creative tension in how we engage with clients – like grit in an oyster. We help you uncover potential issues or challenges, and work with you to resolve them in a way that helps your team and business grow. We adapt and change too. We notice things. It means we’re never quite satisfied with the status quo or obvious answer – we wrestle continuously to find the pearls. And luckily we love what we do.

That grit also means we keep developing how we work with you. Reaching out to people who can help us help you more effectively, or experts who might also be able to help your business grow.

We have supervision from leading experts in the coaching world, to make sure we get significant support and challenge for ourselves, and so we’re well placed to support and challenge you too.

My 30+ years in business from a shift manager in a textile mill to MD of a £15M business in the corporate world has given me a unique perspective on the challenges individuals face in business, and armed me with loads of experience on how to address them. “But it’s not the knowing that’s difficult, it’s the doing…”

I remember always being curious why business leaders and their businesses didn’t grow and develop as effectively as they could – and in line with their stated ambitions. It was a great puzzle – despite knowing exactly what to do, nine times out of ten they couldn’t make the changes needed or make the right decisions to truly achieve the step changes required. It led me to the mantra from the Chinese Proverb ‘it’s not the knowing that’s difficult, it’s the doing’ – because THAT is really what it’s all about after all…

And as a result I reshaped my career from business adviser and mentor to launch myself fully into the world of coaching. My 30+ years in business from a shift manager in a textile mill to MD of a £15M business in the corporate world allowed me a unique perspective on the challenges people were facing, and with loads of experience on how to address them.

I’ve worked with all types of leaders and managers, from underrated heads of finance and recently recruited high potentials, to directors that were heading for burn out. Watching them grow, develop better habits and improve their relationships, was incredible. But I was itching to have more impact on the wider business.

Back in 2010, when I was just starting my coaching journey, I began seeing how powerful the process was for individuals. I’ve worked with all types of leaders and managers, from underrated heads of finance and recently recruited high potentials, to directors that were heading for burn out.  Watching them grow, develop better habits and improve their relationships, was incredible. But I was itching to have more impact on the wider business.

Personal transformations are amazing – but I knew that high performing teams aren’t created because one person transforms themselves.

Over the years we’ve developed an approach that helps individuals and teams make huge leaps forward – transformations that set them up for future success, which make a significant difference to them personally and to the bottom line.

Our techniques change businesses for the better. And it’s an absolute privilege to be involved.

The engagement is fun whilst being challenging. I believe everyone you work with can truly benefit from this experience and grow not only as individuals but also within a team. I only wish I had access to you both a long way back. Very thankful we had the opportunity to work together. ” Dave Davies – CTO DVS
