Welcome to Elmbank Coaching

Hello, my name is Doug Montgomery.   

am an Executive Coach and Coach Supervisor, and Coach Training Facilitator who believes that we all have the potential to be fabulous and are just not fully operating that way yet.

My passion is supporting the growth and development of others through coaching. I love working with people who are facing significant personal or professional transitions and those seeking sustainable change and personal growth to achieve success, fulfilment and balance.   As a coach I offer a safe space to think out loud and gain new personal awareness that allows you to find and make new choices about being and doing.

As a coach supervisor, I offer a transformational learning partnership, within which you can grow and develop personally and professionally. 

Simply put:   I will help you to realise your potential and be the best of you you can be.

 What is my approach to coaching?

My approach is to treat each client I coach as a unique, whole, resourceful and creative person, capable of finding their own solutions, achieving personal development and growth and sustainable change.   If you work with me, we will create a coaching partnership designed to get real clarity of your desired outcomes and tailored to support and challenge you to achieve your goals.

What is my professional background?

I have over 28 years of experience in various leadership roles in blue chip pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline, where I was Director of Coaching in the GSK Coaching Centre of Excellence until leaving in 2014 to establish Elmbank Coaching Ltd.  In 2008 I went on a coaching course for leaders and started to think about this different way of leading and in 2011 trained as an internal coach.  This was when I realised that what I really wanted to do was become a coach.  So in my 50s, I changed career from scientist and leader to coach, coach supervisor and coaching trainer. Looking back, this is the path I have been on for a while without being fully aware of it. 

I have coached leaders from the UK, US, Europe, India, Middle East, Africa, Australia and China and from a broad range of business backgrounds including: research and development, manufacturing and supply chain, sales and marketing, finance, HR, information technology and education and professional golf.  I am a trained facilitator and have trained coaches and delivered coaching workshops that enable individuals, supervisors and managers to introduce a coaching approach to their leadership style by building their coaching skills and self awareness.

Elmbank Coaching clients include leaders in multinational, national, medium sized and start up organisations, pharmaceuticals, research companies and institutes, property development companies, entrepreneurs, business leaders, teachers, professional sportsmen and private individuals.
