The Analytic-Network Coaching System™ is the powerhouse that drives our coaching practice.  Developed over the past two decades, it draws on Phd research, two academically acclaimed books, and a wealth of coaching and leadership experience.


The A-N Coaching System™ is the most advanced in the market as it is based on the worlds first Meta-theory of coaching (Western 2013).


The beauty of this Coaching System is that the depth of theory and experience it draws on, are translated into a user friendly, clean coaching system that any experienced coach or leader can use.


Analytic-Network Coaching System™

The A-N Coaching System™ is not a prescriptive coaching formula, but a process to helps coaches work systematically through five “frames” to guide their clients on a profound leadership journey.



































The Five Frames

  1. Depth Analysis: Coaching the inner-self
  2. Coaching for personal insight, authenticity, joy, meaning, spirituality, clarifying values, purpose and desire.
  3. Relational Analysis: Coaching the relational-self
  4. Exploring how we relate to others, and how others relate to us, finding patterns, addressing challenges and managing emotions attached to relationships, to improve teamwork, leadership and living well.
  5. Leadership Analysis: Coaching the leader-within
  6. Coaching the client to fulfill their unique leadership potential.  Developing new understandings of 21st century leadership and how to distribute leadership throughout organizations.
  7. Network Analysis: Coaching the networked-self
  8. Locating the client in their networks to ground them, and develop a ‘networked mindset’.  Coaching to influence nodal change-points, harnessing the power of the network to grasp emergent opportunities.
  9. Strategic Analysis: Coaching the strategic mindset
  10. We coach clients to develop strategic agility, and deliver strategic personal, team and organizational plans after reviewing the other four frames.  Developing strategic thinking, to work with emergence and  innovation is a core task of today’s leaders.

Greater than the sum of the parts

Each frame in the A-N Coaching System™ is vitally important in its own right. However, the five-frames together create a very powerful, holistic coaching system that has a profound impact on clients. Having used the coaching system to address current challenges, clients  internalize the framework, which they draw on as a map to guide future decision-making  and actions.   This Coaching System is designed to achieve short-term goals whilst also delivering long-term benefits through changing the way leaders think and work.
