""The ECC invest much time in ensuring a good personal match for each individual – taking this time to get good chemistry creates effective coaching partnerships. It was an additional advantage that they had worked with senior and middle management within my previous organisations – their understanding of the different tiers within an organisation makes a big difference: enabling ECC coaches to quickly make an impact upon at all levels of management. Their coaching is highly commercial, whilst it incorporates varying personal styles, everything comes back to making an impact on business results. In particular I would commend my personal experience of being coached around maternity leave - it was invaluable, as most organisations really do not think about supporting this transition. Working with an experienced coach who is also a working mother provides an additional source of very useful advice.""
