My mission is to help Successful Leaders and High Achievers to get even better by achieving positive, lasting change in behaviour for themselves and their teams.

This will not only improve their capability to face new challenges but it will also contribute to a higher feeling of inner peace, to better relationships with all stakeholders and to a deeper sense of fulfilment.

In an always changing world, you have to keep adapting your behaviour, if you wish long lasting success.

Most of my clients are Successful Leaders. They are very intelligent, dedicated and persistent. They are committed to the success of their companies. They have high personal integrity and they realise that the leadership behaviour that was associated with yesterday's results may not be the behaviour needed to achieve tomorrow's successes. While most of us can easily see how others need to change their behaviour, we often have great difficulty in changing ourselves. As we become more successful, it seems even harder to change. In that lies the paradox of Success. As Charles Handy pointed out: "The things and the ways which got you where you are, seldom are the things to keep you there". So, leaders need to change before they have to change.

However, when things are going well, it is hard to propel oneself to change.

To produce effective behavioural change, one has to:


Have the desire to keep improving oneself


Understand perceptions and behaviours that are limiting

Change Patterns

Break habits and replace behaviours

This formula, although simple, is difficult to implement.

Specially alone. This is often what we feel when we are in a leadership position, or when we face a situation that seems too new for us. We tend to exaggerate the hardness of circumstances. Or we mitigate the importance of dealing with the situation in a different way. So we fall into our habits, that proven to be so useful in the past. 

Let the world adapt to us instead.

Darwin taught us the world doesn't work that way

Imagine you decide to become a top-level athlete.

The first step you take is to get a coach, isn’t it? You know that it will be hard to achieve your best without someone by your side to unleash your full potential. The victories that you achieve will always be yours, the result of YOUR efforts and dedication. What the coach will do is to make these efforts and dedication as productive as possible, so that you maximize your growth in the right direction.

If it’s obvious to you that you should have a coach if you were a top level athlete, than it must also be obvious to you that you should get a coach, whatever your profession.

How will I help you to be even better?

99% of the reasons for having trouble dealing with a particular challenge comes from beliefs and the environment we operate in, that are triggering negative behaviours. In other words, the root of the challenge lies in how people behave with themselves and/or others. So, I combine coaching tools with behavioural science in order to help people achieve and sustain positive change that is recognised and acknowledged by others.

If being a Coach means among other things, to pass on knowledge and experiences, Miguel has the necessary skills to make that brilliantly happen. Calm, thoughtful and a sensible leader, Miguel was for a brief time my boss and that was enough for me to understand that he was someone with whom I could share my things, and trust his advises and opinions.
