“Nothing succeeds like success”

That’s an old saying but nothing excites our I.J. Martin & Co coaches more than our clients’ successes. Here are extracts of what some of our satisfied clients since 1998 have told us: 

I.J. Martin and Co Ltd has coached more than 20 of our senior executives. In every case the outcomes have been positive both for the individual and for the group.

The essence and value of this coaching lies in the breadth and depth of ‘real world’ experience of the IJM coaches, the directness and thoroughness of their coaching approach and the strong bond of trust that is built up between the coach and the individual.

The coaching experience was very positive in different aspects, great attention and genuine interest, penetrating questions about what was going well and what should be improved.

Effective 360° analysis from many stakeholders providing a useful diagnostic, focus on developing strengths as well as improving weakness and finding blinding spots, clear and practical guidance for the business and for private life.

I had the pleasure of getting IJM’s facilitation help in improving the way my executive team was functioning.

The coach teased out a set of agenda points that got the right issues on the table and facilitated the meeting with a soft and sensitive hand. He knows what kinds of outcomes are possible, and how to get to them in subtle ways.

He helped us establish a significantly changed team dynamic and a harmonious and highly productive group.

Iain Martin, Founder

“My thirty years of corporate life around the world were just preparation for my coaching today. Now I help global business leaders to become the best that they can be. My own corporate years, at times exciting, often demanding, usually challenging and always educational, now underpin my firm’s goal to grow the client’s Bottom Line through excellent leadership.”

Marlene Uetz, Founder

“My holistic view and deep insights into people, cultures and business were shaped by living, studying and working in Europe, Asia and the Americas and by working for European, US and Asian multinationals. I rounded off my experience by becoming an entrepreneur at a young age. Governance, Strategy and People lie at the heart of my work with global business leaders.”
