STEVEN BRIGHT || CFO
Sheridan and Tontine
“I had the pleasure of working with Alan as my leadership coach over an 18 month period. In this period, I was transformed from a well intentioned manager to a positively impactful leader (still with good intentions!). Alan has a style of coaching that I can best describe as conversational and inductive. It’s up to the participant to grab on and make the change. His story also makes the coaching meaningful and relatable, rather than from a textbook.
Alan coached me from a predominantly green (passive defensive) Leadership Impact style into a predominantly blue (constructive) style. Adopting the process of prescriptive rather than restrictive leadership strategies, I was able to understand how subtle changes in language (my communicated intent) could make me far more impact. The result was a more effective and admired leader, and I enjoyed the role more than ever.”
