Jonathan Wolf-Phillips

Personal Coach and Leadership Trainer


After working in various sales and marketing roles in the computer industry starting in the 1980s, I set up New Leadership Ltd in 1999 to enable me to focus on developing my specialist personal coaching and leadership training practice.

All my work is underpinned by current relevant research findings from neuroscience, and draws on my experience over the last 30 years working with a variety of individuals and groups, in the private, public and civil society sectors; in organisations of varying size, type and age; in the UK, Europe, the USA, and Rwanda.

Personal Coaching

My distinctive approach to personal coaching is based on carefully structured conversations that help people to clarify and/or keep in mind what is most important to them - over the short-term, the medium term, and the long-term.

Examples of client work:

  • Someone needs to make and/or implement one or more significant personal and/or work decisions.

  • Someone needs to develop the way they organise themselves, to help reduce their stress, and/or increase their emotional resilience, and/or spend more of their time on what matters to them most, and/or make better use of their time and talent.

Leadership Training

My highly customisable leadership training combines my personal coaching work (helping people to keep in mind what is most important to them over the short-term, medium-term, and long-term), with my definition of leadership (clarifying direction, aligning resources, organising implementation).

Examples of client work:

  • A business owner or organisation leader needs to develop a more ‘distributed’ approach to leadership (e.g. because they are preparing to step back or step up) and/or a more ‘associative’ approach to leadership (e.g. because they need to help highly autonomous individuals to work together more effectively).

  • A business owner or organisation leader needs to enhance their meeting design and meeting facilitation skills, including how to use advanced decision-making methods (in face-to-face meetings or remotely), where clear decisions need to be made in realistic timescales that may need to also include (and sometimes preserve) a range of different viewpoints and levels of support.
