Why do we exist?

To democratise coaching

Our story

We think managers should be coaches to their team. Why? Because of all the evidence that's been mounting. And because of the challenges posed by the pandemic.

We started Manageable to put coaching skills where they belong: in the leaders of teams. At the heart of organisations. If not today, tomorrow's leaders will be brilliant coaches first and foremost. If managers coach, everyone in organisations has access to one. 

This is equitable and will be good for everyone in your firm, and for the business metrics that matter.
