Charlie Wilson

Executive Coach
Bosideon Consulting Limited

Became a member of the Opendoorz team January '18

Play hard…

Charlie combines the lessons he learnt in the military with a couple of Master’s Degrees to help improve teamworking and leadership throughout organisations. He shows how everyone can develop their natural abilities through self-awareness and intentional change. Individual coaching and executive development and are proven ways to achieve rapid results.

Work hard…

Business people come to Charlie when they want to improve their natural leadership style so that they can perform to their potential both day-to-day and when the pressure comes on.

It has taken Charlie a while to learn how to do this. His first career was in the Royal Navy in which he was a successful leader in a wide range of situations and an integral member of a variety of high-performing teams. Since then he has learnt that, although some of the challenges facing military officers are unique to their situation, many of them are similar to the leadership and management issues facing executives in all walks of life.

As a coach, Charlie creates a safe space in which someone can examine their goals, really understand what they imply and create momentum towards them. He supports and challenges them, gently insisting that they align what they feel with what they think, say and do. He does not stick rigidly to one coaching model or technique but uses what he thinks appropriate and what the coachee finds useful. His clients value his reassurance, validation, practical focus and flexibility, and that he has provoked them to think more clearly.

Charlie is endlessly fascinated by both the practical and the theoretical dimensions of getting people to work well together. He spends a lot of time researching and pondering these matters. At other times he is a keen hill-walker, a slow triathlete and can often be found in the garden, mentoring his compost heaps.
