Colin has fifteen years’ experience in coaching successful executives who feel trapped and frustrated by the day-to-day demands of running a business or division. They want to free up time and use their full potential so that they can focus on growth, make a bigger difference and achieve more balance and fulfillment in their lives.

What Clients Have To Say:
“In the four years that I have worked with Colin Stansell, I have found him to be an attentive listener and measured advisor. In getting me to question my assumptions and to maintain a life-work balance, Colin has added a lot of value to the decisions that I made. In a constantly challenging environment, Colin has been a valued sounding board for decision-making at the executive level.”

“To me this has been very valuable. What I’ve learned from our sessions is the importance of perspective; how you look at things and how you respond. Also the value of aligning my passions and strengths with my longer-term goals. I’m more focused and decisive. When your long-term goals are clear it’s easier to make short-term decisions.
I wouldn’t have got here without this process”
