HARPER360 Founder & Managing Director David Harper tells us why he gave up a senior role in Corporate world to follow his passion for Coaching & Mentoring:

“Waiting for the 6am train to London one Monday morning, I realised I was only doing it because I’d done it the week before and the week before that. It was habitual, but no longer inspired me. Having mentored a number of colleagues internally and received some amazing feedback, I realised I was spending the least time each week doing the thing that gave me most enjoyment and job satisfaction. ‘There’s an easy way to change that’ …… and that’s what I did! So, here I am, a Business Coach with 30 years experience to share with you. To help you and your teams be the Best You Can Be.”

Case Study

Lisa is a middle manager for a supermarket distribution company. Having been offered an Acting Director role in another part of the Business, she doubted whether she could learn quickly enough and feared being found out by her seniors, peers and own team. Lisa reached out to David as part of a Company Sponsored Mentoring Programme.

Here’s what Lisa said 3 sessions into the Programme

David’s approach put me immediately at ease and within a very short space of time I found myself having a very open and frank discussion about my concerns with the role I was being offered

Our sessions became an invaluable opportunity for me to safely discuss thoughts, ideas and concerns over my new role and my future within the organisation

To date I have received very positive feedback on my performance within my new role and I would honestly credit David with having a significant impact on that success

Having developed Leaders globally now for over 20 years, it’s fair to say I’ve learnt so much about them and me. There is no bigger buzz than seeing existing leaders become more self-aware and recognise the imprint their leadership has on others, and seeing future leaders grow in confidence, capability and commitment. I’ve facilitated Senior Leaders events in Asia, coached team events across Europe and worked with leaders on a 121 basis to help them grow. With Care and Edge in the way I work, I support and challenge them, creating insight and fresh thinking, always with a desire to help them grow and fuel their business performance.

I bring a range of profiling and psychometric approaches and I’m a qualified coach with the International Coaching Federation ( ICF )
