Maximising Your Ambition is a self-paced, fully digital course developmental coaching journey over 3-4, that will help you break through barriers in your life and reach your potential.

We have worked with some of the most ambitious people and in some of the most ambitious environments globally, including at McKinsey – the global management consulting firm – and with more than 30 Fortune 500 companies. What differentiates this course is the combination of deep introspection and personal development practices, coupled with rigour and intensity.

We know that achieving your ambitions is complex, and that the answer is not just to “work harder” or turn down our ambitions. Instead, we provide proprietary assessments and tools that you can put into place immediately. Maximising Your Ambition summarises more than 30 years’ of combined research and practice into a structured course with over 35 videos, workbook, exercise sheets, assessments, and templates.
