"I would like to recommend Nicholas McKie at Persyou. He was fantastic at helping me to gain confidence in myself through several coaching sessions. This resulted in me moving from a long-term Middle Leader into my first Deputy Principal position".

“As a coach, Nick has really challenged my thinking. Nick has asked questions that have encouraged me to reflect on my leadership journey and supported me in finding the answers. Nick's coaching has been truly inspiring”.

“I have truly enjoyed the coaching sessions with Nicholas McKie. The sessions were refreshing and rewarding. He is a phenomenal listener and helped me access what I already know. During the conversations he made me realize that I have the answers for the questions I have never asked myself. Nicholas has made a positive difference in my daily interactions with my team”.

Having been a Headteacher in three schools and a competitor in Crossfit and Badminton, life has always been very busy and well occupied and balanced. Starting a new job in my fifth London local authority, a new headship, with an injury highlighted just how important professional coaching is. Nick at Persyou has been key to facilitating this space for me, where challenges as leaders come thick and fast, composure, calm and acceptance of reality were key components of our sessions. Will absolutely recommend Nick and Persyou to leaders – to me it has become just as important as my health and fitness!
