Leaders should be visible, accessible and approachable… and never stop learning.

Our Vision

At the Geek Coach, we live and breathe the IT industry! And we are passionate about successfully integrating IT people into the world of business.

Whilst being able to fulfil a technical role to a high standard, those in the IT industry frequently struggle with human skills such as communication, teamwork and leadership.

Our mission is to encourage, teach and nurture growth in the world of IT. We are committed to helping individuals within the industry embrace new skills that will aid self-development and help to drive their businesses to levels of increased performance.

Leadership in the IT industry

Our Strategy

Coaching is a form of development for business leaders and future leaders. It provides positive support, feedback, and advice on an individual or group basis to improve personal effectiveness in the business setting, focusing on behavioural changes through psychometrics or 360-degree feedback.

Most people are not born leaders. For the majority, becoming an outstanding leader requires learning and time. In addition to developing practical skills, leaders must also have great character. They need to develop an understanding of emotional intelligence and human behaviour. It’s this greater understanding that enables both established and emerging leaders to positively influence workplace culture, communication, facilitation, modelling and mentoring, to name a few. It’s these principles of development on which our unique strategy is based.

One fundamental thing that we’ve learned is that people are generally capable of achieving far more than they imagine possible. Here at The Geek Coach, we open the door to those possibilities and guide you to achieve and perform far beyond the expectations of yourself and others.

It’s time to reboot your super-geek!
