Hired to bring about change by coaching, training and mentoring that makes a tangible difference to both organisational performance and individuals’ lives.
This homepage is designed to give you most of what you’d want, all in one place, to decide if we feel right for you or your organisation. And if you’d like extra detail, then the wider site has more…
Are we right for you?
We’re a boutique; and though some projects are far-reaching with large populations, we don’t target these. Our reputation has been built on being a catalyst for Return on Investment & Expectation (ROI/ROE) through transforming mindsets, KPIs and KBIs.
Therefore we choose who we work with very carefully on the basis that the timing and approach need to be right for everyone involved.
Our mantra from the outset has driven business growth and that is to “deliver to such a degree that every client will hire us again and recommend us.” It has been said that Marketing is for the unremarkable – so we’ve avoided it and let our clients speak for themselves, it’s you we’re serving after all.
- Spring team members have facilitated £25m of ROI during the last 12 months
- “Our Hong Kong Sales Team delivered a return that paid for the entire coaching programme in less than 6 weeks & they are personally benefitting far beyond the scope of what we contracted.”
- “The SLA black holes have disappeared in 4 months with a 40% increase in Customer Satisfaction”
- “My coaching with Luke was one of THE best mornings I’ve had in this business for 29 years”
- £18k contract agreed and £5k cost saving after a 40 min meeting and a 5 min phone call
- “The capacity you’ve freed up in my mind to overcome anxiety is working literally every day – it’s so fast & practical”
Holistic without the hippy
We don’t hang our hat on just one or two methodologies. We use a deliberately eclectic mix. All that we do is tailored to suit the needs of the business, team and individuals we are working with. We draw on the arts, science, NLP, sport, neuroscience, accelerated learning, the big screen, comedy, mindfulness and beyond.
This way we tackle both the whole system and individuals, to bring about intentioned, accelerated changes in behaviours and mindsets – that then land the commercial results
It’s not just edgy facts and figures though. Many of our biggest breakthrough results have come from increasing individuals’ personal resilience, well being and emotional agility – learn more in our blog

Reasons we are hired…
Has a recent restructuring or the pace of change put a strain on your team or slowed performance?
Do you need your people to quickly land strategic changes being made to your operations, processes or culture?
Have you created a new team who need to start hitting their KPIs or Balanced Scorecard quickly?
Would some clarity of thinking mixed with fresh creativity benefit your Senior Team?
Are you wanting to outsource Talent Pool development?
Are you looking for Exec Coaching that delivers greater measurable results?
This is the most exciting part of how we work.
It’s created when we really get to know the individuals we are working with and can utilise our full toolbox of skills and techniques to help them see things differently to truly understand their actions and consequences.
Once they have the ‘light bulb’ moment, we work with them through the layered learning approach to ensure the new mindsets and behaviours take hold. Once these become ‘the new norm’, our work is done – we build self-sufficiency.
Some of our clients
“Spring’s training approach is light on its feet, interactive, invigorating, informal, not pressurised.”
“This is a game-changer. We saw their behaviours & then the KPIs change before our eyes.”
Regional Sales Manager
“My 121 coaching with Luke was one of THE best mornings in 29 years with this business!”
“Andrew & Luke quickly earn people’s respect. Without exception they focus on achieving a measurable difference to the organisation. It’s all about adding value.”
HR Business Partner
“The techniques you’ve taught me & the capacity you’ve freed up in my mind to overcome my anxiety are working literally everyday – it’s so fast, easy & practical.”
Head of PR
“The SLA black holes have disappeared in 4 months with a 40% increase in Customer Satisfaction”
Head of Customer Service
“Alison I’m on a high – you’ve helped me achieve things with my team that I didn’t think possible.”
“Their great ability is in not just delivering a theoretical training concept, but seeing it through to delivery; then producing a real change in behaviours and performance metrics. They do all this whilst gaining buy-in from the team and ensuring compliance to company standards.”
“Email traffic has fallen away, we’re seeing people pick up the phone & even better, lots more face to face engagement.”
“So much of my previous training has been sitting around a table and people using flipcharts or powerpoint – this was exciting – well done!”
“You’ve smashed the mindsets that were holding us back.”
“Sian & Vicki took time to thoroughly understand my requirements as an excellent mentor and coach. I was delighted with the progress I have made. They were accessible, understanding & challenging. Our sessions were planned & focused with flexibility. The added value was evident within improved key HR activities such as organisational restructuring. Everything was achieved effectively & within a tight timeframe.”
Head of HR
