Our Mission: Improving everyone's working day through better leadership.
- Angela Armstrong

Armstrong (Coaching & Consulting)

I started Armstrong (Coaching & Consulting) to deliver leadership development solutions that combine learning about how to ‘do’ leadership with how to ‘be’ a leader.

Mission

We are passionate about improving everyone’s working day through better leadership

Vision

To develop authentic, resilient and change-capable leaders who can sustain high performance and nurture future talent.

Purpose

Improving the quality of leadership not only improves overall productivity, customer satisfaction and employee retention it improves our health, well-being and relationships outside of work too – now that’s a ripple effect worth striving for.

The pace of change is ever increasing; technological advances create new ways of working, and expectations of transparency. Leadership practises must evolve to remain relevant today ...and into the future.

Who we are

My background includes both highly demanding operational roles and experience of working in a busy human resources team. I understand that a company can achieve outstanding results when, and only when,business strategy and talent strategy come together.

I work with associates that have complementary specialist offerings which we combine as required to meet your specific needs.

If you work with us, I will always be your main point of contact ...the buck stops here.

Who we work with

We support business owners, business managers and HR professionals in companies and organisations of all sizes – from small companies to large corporates ... in the private and public sectors.

  • Senior decision makers and ambitious individuals.
  • Business owners of companies targeting high growth.
  • Industries: IT, Engineering, Professional Services
  • Anywhere in the UK (coaching available internationally)

What we do

Enable people to achieve their full leadership potential.

We focus on equipping leaders at all levels with the ability to deliver operational results in ways that build trust, tirelessly and flexibly over the long term.

Our work falls into three main areas:

  1. Training: instructor led training for companies at their premises or preferred venue, either as a stand-alone course or as part of a comprehensive leadership programme.
  2. One-to-one coaching packages: impactful conversations for corporates developing their key talent, business owners, or high potential individuals paying for their own coaching.
  3. Consultancy: practical solutions that blend the right mix of consultancy, training, mentoring, coaching and facilitation to meet your business need. 

How we do it

Barack Obama addressed the world’s media and an audience of 15,000 people in Johannesburg, South Africa for the annual Nelson Mandela lecture, celebrating the centenary of Mandela’s birth.

Personal resilience - the struggle is real
Jun 06 2018

Many people I train or coach on the subject of resilience (wellbeing) are high performers seeking to differentiate from their peers by “going the extra mile” and often the path they take is one of long hours… working harder, but not always smarter.

This model, whilst deceptively simple to explain, contains artistry in the distillation and integration of many leadership models that came before it, building on their strengths, addressing their limitations and adding ‘presence’.
