"I started talking to Rob when I was going through a period of significant uncertainty in my career, transitioning from a COO role in a privately-owned maritime intelligence company to a new, non-exec / portfolio-based career. In my first experience of professional coaching, Rob provided invaluable support by leading me through the journey with professional, sensitive and practical support.

His organised and consistent approach helped me to set realistic goals against which I could measure my progress toward my stated objective of ‘finding clarity on my next steps and future direction.’ Rob’s knowledge of the employment landscape, alongside his excellent coaching skills rapidly built rapport between us and resulted in the foundations of trust that gave me the confidence to explore every facet of my character, needs and wants in an open and completely confidential manner.  

Whilst he wasn’t afraid to ask me some tough questions, Rob’s aim was always to enable my thinking and not do it for me, allowing me to find my own answers and my own path in my own time. Throughout the whole process he was positive and non-judgemental, keeping me honest with myself and on track towards my objectives.

I felt that Rob had a genuine interest in my personal development and success – a characteristic of the very clear passion he has for helping others. He became a consistent feature in my transition and a trusted friend, whose active listening and gentle questioning led me to a few ‘Eureka’ moments along the way.

In a relatively short time, I have achieved the business portfolio I wanted, alongside the time to pursue other things that matter most to me. This is in no small part due to Rob and the role he played in coaching me, for which I’m truly grateful. 

I would strongly recommend the coaching process and, if you’re wondering where to start, getting in touch with Rob McKay of Sherrington Associates would be a very smart first step.”
