senior executive leadership development, emerging leaders/high potentials development, future-ready leaders, and leaders in transition. His coaching engagements span across varied sectors in pharmaceuticals, technology, financial services, FMCGs, hospitality, manufacturing, real estate and investments, infrastructure and engineering, not-for-profit and public service.
COACHING STYLE AND APPROACH
Danny adopts a collaborative adult learning approach to coaching. He works with counterparts on personal and people leadership styles, success factors, stakeholder perspectives, strengths-based principles and solutions focus. Counterparts appreciate his consultative style, in-depth diagnostics and pragmatic stakeholder and business-centred approach. He gains a counterpart’s confidence as a trusted advisor, taking time to understand their business, asking probing questions, drilling down to real issues, clarifying expectations, goals, and outcomes.
To coach, Danny draws from his professional career in strategic HR, organisational development, change leadership and development, across several diverse sectors (US & European), including investment banking and financial services, specialty chemicals, logistics, technology, and leadership consulting. Prior to coaching, he capitalised on business and leadership experience across the APAC region to become Director of Client Solutions and Executive Consultant at PDI Ninth House and Director of Client Solutions for Korn Ferry Leadership and Talent Consulting.
