A little bit about our founder:
Joseph Grech, PCC Coach

I’m Joseph, founder of Smarter Learning Ltd. and my expertise lies in supporting and challenging people to get unstuck, achieve their goals, and unlock potential.

Over the last 15 years I have worked in a range of organisations globally, supporting people make confident and positive changes in their lives. I supported individuals, providing them with a safe yet challenging space to clearly understand themselves, their values and what they want to achieve in life.

Throughout my career I have experienced what it means to step outside of my comfort zone and feel that anxiety as I advanced in a number of L&D roles; first in a SME, then a multinational firm and also a FTSE100 organisation, amongst others.

Now, as an external coach, what is fundamental to my practice is my core, humanistic belief in the power of people. I’m a firm believer of positive psychology and strengths-based approaches and have coached individuals across industries and grades in the UK and overseas, including the Middle East and the US. Due to my varied corporate experience I have worked with board level members and also with junior individuals, including entrepreneurs and graduates.

To support them I am experienced using a wide range of different coaching frameworks; including Solutions-Focus Approaches and Transformational Models. This is integral to me as I believe that a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach can be limiting in coaching relationships and can devalue the individual.

On top of my 1:1 coaching I facilitate a number of workshops that Smarter Learning deliver, particularly focusing on leadership and management. I also lecture on CIPD Qualifications in L&D and train on a range of coach development programmes.

    We support 1:1 clients:

    Identify and overcome limiting beliefs that get in the way of career progression. Improve leadership performance, decision-making and strategic presence

    Make the most of periods of transition including career change, redundancies or promotions

    Enhance self confidence when working with senior stakeholders and customers

    Obtain greater self-awareness and heightened focus at work and in their personal lives

    Achieve work-life balance whilst excelling both at work and in their personal life

    We support organisations:

    Design, deliver and evaluating Management and Leadership Development Programs
