Coaching and Mentoring

We truly believe that for people to transform, you have to provide the right environment and support for them. That’s why we offer a unique type of insight led support for leaders.

Many people don’t have someone they can just talk to in confidence. To share their concerns, check their thinking with and help to look at things from a different perspective. Whether you are looking for someone who you can trust outside your team, or for someone to help you with your team, our pool of JumpShift coaches aim to help leaders adapt to the exciting but challenging opportunities emerging in the workplace.

We build learning agility and leadership capability by connecting people and ideas through high impact coaching that transforms capability, confidence and effectiveness and creates sustainable behaviour change, inspiring smart action in real work and life.

We offer both 1:1 and team coaching. 

      1:1 Coaching

      Tailored to your purposes we partner with these leaders for 1:1 coaching:

      • Executives
      • Senior Leaders/ People Leaders
      • Emerging Leaders
      • Influence Leaders (technical specialists who have taken on leadership roles)


      Team Coaching

      We enable teams to develop their own superpowers that maximise their capability and performance as a team. We do this by coaching teams to:

      • Create an environment that enables you to thrive
      • Optimise your mindset and behaviours as part of a broader system in your organisation and your external context
      • Grow your capability and confidence to ultimately become a ‘self-coaching team’ – learning to develop yourselves as a team in a sustainable way.


        How it Works

        Our JumpShift coaches will help you to gain self-awareness, clarify goals, achieve your development objectives and unlock your potential. We can provide options so you can select a ‘best fit’ coach for you or your organisation.

        Based on what you’re after, a typical JumpShift Coaching programme will involve a (free) first meet to discuss what you want to achieve/ the challenges you’re facing and if we’re the right fit for you. Following this, your coach will work with you to develop a coaching programme that is aligned with your needs and works with your lifestyle. Remember, we’re the ones here to support you!

        To embed your developmental journey, a customised coaching experience on Adeption will also be created for you, enabling 24/7 access to a ‘coach in your pocket’. The Adeption platform is used to reflect on insights and actions on this journey and is also a chance to pull from a set of relevant coaching tools to support your growth. 

        A suite of 15-minute ‘coaching conversations’ will also be made available to you via Adeption. These can include: Changing Roles – Creating your ‘Leadership Backbone’ – Leading Change/ Dealing with Change – Life Planning – Holding Crucial Conversations.

        Coachee Experience

        Meet Roxanne Salton, Chief Digital Officer at Southern Cross Health Society

        The structure that was bought to the coaching eased me into my journey quite quickly. I was feeling valued, feeling reassured and feeling energised, starting to crystallise my thinking about what I wanted to get out of coaching. Mark captured everything I said, listened and guided me magically through the process. What really impressed me is that Mark always had a plan but wasn’t wedded to it. If I needed to talk about something different on the day. We worked through that. 

        Paul Birch

        Amplify My Potential

        I thought I knew where I wanted to be but I wasn’t asking the right questions. Meeting with Don really cemented the challenges I needed to face and really understand what is of value to myself moving forward. This conversation completely opened me up to how I see myself, what my next five years would look like and who I really wanted to be. For that I’m so grateful. I now find myself exactly where I want to be, know exactly where I want to go and what steps I need to take to get me there. 

        Roxanne Salton

        Chief Digital Officer, Southern Cross

        Mark adapts to the needs of the individuals in front of him and that’s a sign of a truly great coach. Looking back, I was taken on an approach that was bespoke to me – a challenging and gentle approach. It was a continous improvement cycle, you’re never not doing the work and that’s something I really enjoyed. Some months I met with my coach more frequently and if there was something particularly meaty that I needed to work on we’d meet two or three times a month.
