How do I know if I’m ready for a coach?
The fact that you are exploring our website shows you have recognised your desire to improve - or even change - whether it be your mindset, your work/life balance, your performance under pressure, or your leadership style.
All of the worlds greatest athletes have coaches, having a coach for them is not a weakness it is a performance multiplier.
If you are ready to be open about and examine your situation, your behaviour, and your outlook, prepared to receive thoughtful honest feedback, and willing to work hard to put into practice what we discuss - then, yes, you’re ready.
Coaching may not be right for you if you are looking for a quick fix or hack.
My company has their own mentorship programme. What can you bring to the table?
We may not have the same corporate background as you - but that’s exactly why our clients love working with us. Duratus coaches offer a fresh and objective perspective on the challenges you face. Our former careers have furnished us with insights, principles, and strategies for coping - and thriving - under intense pressure.
Investing in an independent coach or mentor also gives you complete freedom to be honest about your challenges and weaknesses without feeling vulnerable to what you say being exposed to your peers.
Who do you coach and mentor?
We work with c-suite executives in leadership roles in any industry, including CEOs, directors, partners, and business owners at the highest levels.
Although we are based in the UK, our online sessions mean we can serve international clients. We have helped clients from the USA, South Africa, and Australia; location isn’t an issue.
My schedule is tight. How flexible are your appointments?
Eager to make positive progress, our clients like to prioritise their coaching sessions. However, we understand that with so many demands on your resources, it can be hard to fit everything in. That’s why we offer a bespoke service with a timetable to suit your needs.
It seems like a big investment. How do I know if it’s worth it?
We all invest in what matters most to us. We love being able to help our clients improve their authentic leadership skills and develop resilience. These qualities are invaluable and bring immeasurable benefits to those who work hard to readjust their mindset. But don’t just take our word for it, read what our clients have to say.
How much will our conversation/sessions be influenced by your former military careers?
All personnel in the UKSF have signed the Official Secrets Act. We will never exploit that trust by sharing operation details. That is not our focus. Instead, we concentrate on what our experiences taught us about how we cope and think during the hardest and darkest of times. It’s the principles and strategies that we forged under those circumstances that we will share with you.
How and when do you accept payment?
We accept flexible payment methods to suit your needs.
The payment schedule varies according to your package. The Duratus Foundation Coaching Package requires upfront payment to secure your first session, while the Corporate Athlete and Mentorship Programmes work on a monthly subscription.
Our team workshops are normally delivered for an agreed price, with invoice and payment upon completion.
You don’t have any female coaches. Will that change?
We are always on the lookout for expanding our coaching staff. When the right - authentic - person comes along then we’d love to add them to the team.
