Applied and hands-on leadership coaching
Experienced professional and personal development
Making Stuff Better is a leadership coaching company for international school leaders.
Working around the globe, we coach ambitious values-driven leaders who want to have a lasting impact in a world that requires agility, collaboration and perspective. We work with principled leaders who understand that only through their own transformation can they change those that they lead.
MSB very much views coaching as a co-active process. Two people coming together in the active pursuit of improvement for one of them. Coaching really can help people develop their personal capabilities, interpersonal skills and capacity to understand and empathise with others.
COACHING EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE
The core ways that our coaching system enhances and develops your staff and the general wellbeing of your college. The process gives ways of being and engaging within the school that benefits the whole experience for staff and students.
Empowerment can have many different meanings to different people depending on their experiences, circumstances, hopes, and dreams. However, it is generally, the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one's personal and professional life.
MSB coaching can really help empower leaders in education through our support and tailored guidance. The result is that our Coaching empowers education leaders to do exceptional work within their schools and colleges.
It is a fact that having greater insights into situations lead to making better decisions. Having an understanding of a situation can create a wealth of qualitative insights that coupled with strong analysis can help education establishments make better business decisions. From clear signals to very subtle hints, coaching may help spot and identify how businesses can maximise the effectiveness of their leaders.
Coaching can help keep leaders keep alignment with the wider organisational goals and targets.
This can be really important especially for department heads where their day-to-day responsibilities may be very focused and sometime quite detail orientated.
Taking a step back and looking at the broader goals and targets can ensure personal development targets as well as the wider team or organisational targets remain on the same page.
Coaching employees and staff who may be experiencing mental health problems at work can have incredible and very positive results.
Experience has taught us that it is often the case that our clients have not asked for help about stress as it would look weak and affect their career.
Employee wellbeing is just as much about the mental health as it is the physical health of your employees and coaching is one of the most effective ways of supporting your employees with their mental health, especially during and after periods of high stress and extreme change.
What Our Clients Say
"After the coaching I feel that the problems that I face, are still there, but have reached a manageable size."

"MSB and the MSB Network is a lot more than coaching, leadership and effectiveness, although it does those things extremely well, it also provides a community and connection for peer learning, sharing and growth. I love their philosophy and approach to education, well-being and humanity to create happier people, workplaces and the world!."
