Executive Coach - Lorraine Bateman


As an Executive Coach I seek to provide high impact coaching for the leadership development of your most senior and significant executives through: speaking the truth; bringing an organisational and business perspective; using a range of tools and techniques to support behavioural change, and sharing opinions.


Lorraine has led functions in the field of management and organisational development for twenty years, in industries spanning food manufacturing (f.m.c.g.), pharmaceuticals, drinks (global), media, and publishing (global). Additionally she has consulted to and coached within the f.m.c.g., retail and financial sectors. She has been a dedicated executive coach for the last five years. Lorraine is as widely educated as she is experienced in her chosen field, having a BSc Hons in Sociology & Social Psychology (Bath) and a Masters degree in Organisational Behaviour & Adult Learning (MAML, Lancaster). Her coaching skills development incorporates emotional intelligence, bio-energetics, intuitive knowledge, positive psychology, transactional analysis and she uses the Myers Briggs Type Indicator, Firo B and Hogan psychometric tools.

Lorraine’s coaching clients have typically been at Executive Committee level and functional (global and local) and regional/ country and business unit lead roles. Lorraine’s style is to be business and results focussed and, with a good balance of challenge and support she will help her clients to develop and enhance their effectiveness. She is able to quickly get on board with her clients context and develop very easy, open and trusting relationships. Lorraine seeks to leverage strengths and is attentive to the behaviours and underlying patterns, which impact on the performance of a leader with their colleagues and teams. She is immediate with her feedback, is probing, and committed to partner clients on their development journey. She is open, observant, fun and resourceful.

“ I fundamentally believe that people are resourceful and can choose to create significant growth and change within themselves to better effect their situation. Drawing on both behavioural psychology and my understanding of organisations I work in partnership with clients as they explore new leadership possibilities. There are no textbook answers, but a journey of probing, exploring, reflecting, hypothesising, empathising, testing, re-framing, experimenting, informing and challenging, with support can result in breakthrough moments of self-understanding and awareness that lead to significant outcomes. I am a careful listener who offers insights and interpretations, opinions and ideas from the practical to the profound within a fun, stimulating and safe relationship.”

Outside her professional life Lorraine enjoys reading, swimming, films, travel and pursuing her interest in the First World War. She has an MA in Biography and is currently researching and writing a biographical novel. She pursues her own self-development with energy and enthusiasm.
