I am an executive and team coach with broad experience supporting individuals, leaders and teams in developing, growing and delivering.

Who is Alan Taylor?

My coaching experience is built on top of a diverse career including military aircraft avionics engineer and flight line management, software development, project management (traditional and agile) and business analysis. My life experiences are also quite broad, having lived and worked in the UK, Germany, Switzerland, New Zealand and Australia.

Communities and Research
I am co-creator of an international research program with The Climate Coaches. We developed effective learning methods, enabling individual growth applicable to climate sustainability action and transferable mental skills. The results demonstrated a 7% improvement in cognitive uplift in the program participants. These benefits ultimately enable outcomes including productivity and employee engagement and retention.

I enjoy sharing knowledge and learnings, including speaking at the Melbourne LAST (Lean, Agile and Systems Thinking) Conference.

I contribute to the Australian hub of the Inner Development Goals, which provides a framework of the capabilities, qualities and skills we need in order to achieve the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We are exploring how we can assist growing awareness and effectiveness of this powerful framework for inner growth.

As a co-convener of the Climate Coaching Alliance for Australia and New Zealand, I enjoy helping an engaged community build awareness in the many psychological and practical areas that climate change is creating.

Why coach with Alan Taylor?

People come to me at times such as when they:

  • are seeking a change, and are not sure where to go or how to get there
  • see opportunities and are not sure how to realise them
  • seek to become better leaders
  • wish to increase collaboration
  • seek to grow confidence and communicate more effectively 
  • wish to relate and engage with people better

I support and help clients understand the situation from new perspectives (rather than directing), so they can determine their own best way forward.
