Style and Approach

Sheridan is a highly effective business performance coach, with 25 years’ experience of helping senior executives and their teams to improve their performance and to positively impact their personal and team results. He works with clients collaboratively and in an engaging, enjoyable and non-directive style to help them discover self-limiting beliefs and assumptions that prevent them performing to their best.

Sheridan then works with the client to create practical and effective ways of moving forward to achieve their specific business goals and deliver measurable results for the business.
