Individual and Executive Leadership Coaching


Over the last 15 years of working with business owners to transform their business results, the number one objection we get to working with a Leadership Coach is: 'If I had more time....' closely followed by 'Let me just finish this task / activity first' and 'I am just too busy'. These responses are great at putting off a decision, but not great at changing your team or business results - they keep you stuck in your current behaviours.

At Kameleons - Developing Leaders, we know what it is like to balance your own needs and priorities with that of your team and business. We have developed a unique approach to leadership and executive coaching that is designed to get you back on track, aligned to your goals, and delivering on your expectations with drive and confidence.



Most business leaders tell us that if they could manage themselves better, their team better, their time better, then the results would come. We work with leaders that have struggled to:

hold their team to account for results,
deliver on deadlines,
have difficult conversations with team members without anxiety,
set clear expectations in performance and behaviour, and / or
avoid their own procrastination and time management issues.

Take the responsibility back for your won performance and that of your team and give us a call. We will work with you to apply your strengths and deliver on results that you know you are capable of. Our Executive Leadership Coaching can make the difference.



Any individual, in any chosen field, looking for high-performance and improved results engages a coach to help their achieve their goals. Can you name a high performing sports star, athlete, singer, dancer or artist that didn’t have a coach? Why should a business executive, CEO, COO or small business owner be any different? Expand on each of the 7 statements below to see how an Executive Leadership Coach can improve your performance.

Listen - A Leadership Coach is a listener first and foremost.

Altitude - A Leadership Coach Will Identify What is Lifting You Up and Dragging You Down

Aware - A Leadership Coach will work with you to understand yourself and the individuals in your team

Align - A Leadership Coach will guide you back on track when you have drifted

Achieve - A Leadership Coach will encourage you in the right direction, push you when you need it, and cheer you through success 

Adapt - A Leadership Coach will assist you to pivot in new environments

A Leadership Coach will cheer you on following the little wins and challenge you to do more.


Someone who listens to the problem first
Identifies your strengths and what 'lifts' and 'drags' your performance
Someone in your corner who understands you
Someone to guide you back on track
Someone to encourage you, push you and cheer you on as you require it
Develop skills to adapt to changing environments
Someone to challenge you to do more

'I admit I started on the path of coaching with a healthy dose of scepticism, which I suspect is not unlike many others before me. However, I happily confess this was misplaced. Working with Michael over the last 4 months or so has been both a pleasurable and valuable experience. Michael was able to look through some of the symptoms and help me identify and start to address some of the causes of hurdles in my path to greater satisfaction in my work place. At the same time the improved clarity has helped me understand myself and a number of my outside-of-work relationships. I would have no hesitation in recommending Michael to others in search of a similar coaching experience and indeed I suggest most people I know would benefit from the experience of working with him.


Kristine Slater  Engineering & Technical Manager Lyondellbasell

'Michael has helped me immensely in dealing with difficult situations over the last 18 months. His coaching has given me confidence in myself to have the difficult conversations which have resulted in improved performance in myself and my team. One of Michaels strengths is his ability to adapt his coaching session to what is happening at the time rather than working to a script which has been appreciated. Michael is easy to talk to and keeps everything in confidence. I highly recommend Michael to anyone to wants to improve and work on their leadership and interpersonal skills.


Sean Corby Regional  Executive Manager/ Scania Trucks

'During the 12 months that I worked with Michael I found him to be a extremely effective Leadership Coach and would highly recommend him. Through safe and thought provoking sessions, Michael demonstrated a unique ability to accurately hone in on areas we needed to develop. Michael’s insightful coaching, together with an array of practical tools such as the ‘inoculation’ have enabled me to become a more balanced leader.


Francesca MacPherson General Manager CIC Higher Education

'Leadership coaching with Michael Peiniger has helped me more than I thought it would, I wasn't sure what to expect but his coaching brought out the leader who was always in me, but perhaps was a little afraid. Michael has taught me to be assertive, organised and efficient, he also guided me to be more open with my team which sometimes means being vulnerable (which is a strength I never recognised). Being a leader is difficult, but Michael will help you tidy it up, sort it out and lead your team to achieve your organisations goals.


Marianne Matin General Manager, Capability & Change/ PTV

'Few people have the opportunity to be guided and inspired by Michael but I have been one of those fortunate to experience the focus, generosity and compassion of his coaching support over the last 6 months. I am in awe of his ability to strike the right chord in his feedback from the leadership profile and leave me confidently and positively able to run with it afterwards. I just wish I had met him earlier in my career!


Tony Cooper General Manager Department of Justice & Regulation

'Michael worked with me as my Executive Coach for nearly 2 years. When starting the process Michael and I worked through what I was seeking from coaching, which we regularly reviewed to ensure that we remained on track. I felt through the 2 years I learnt more about myself and my capacity to work in my role and what aspects of the role really mattered to me. When I come up against new challenges, I return to my coaching lessons and utilies the tools that Michael provided. The lessons I learnt are life long lessons and I believe have made me a better Manager and person.
