Untapped Talent



Executive Coaching


Coaching from the inside-out

Untapped Talent have developed what is an academically-rigorous process designed to sustain elevated performance in top talent pools, but one also based on years of successful coaching outcomes with our clients.

We research the neurobiology of performance to ensure individuals sustain and improve leading behaviours and the process is designed to assist them in understanding the real triggers and drivers of behaviour. We use the best biodata technology available as well as collecting professional, health and social data. This ensures coaching prevents, not just cures, burnout and stress and have your key people showing up better each and every day.  Put simply, our mandate is to protect and optimise.

It is important to recognise that sustainable performance requires a brain and body to be functionally fit. This does not mean one needs to win the Olympics, run a marathon or have the strength of Thor – far from it. But individuals need to get and stay brain-fit for work and professional responsibilities. Brain fitness is different (although somewhat linked) to physical fitness.

This coaching process, however, is rooted in the fact that there are certain triggers that ready a brain to perform. They reside in the subterranean world of the non-conscious and physiological. The body directs the brain as much as the other way around, so we start by helping individuals understand how their system actually works. Only then can we look at how their bodies produces emotional states that drive what we know as thoughts and feelings. It’s as if the dice are already loaded by the time we’re consciously aware of something. One of the most exciting parts of this coaching is the growing ability of individuals to discern how and when they are being influenced by their physiological and emotional states and learning to regulate and attune to them.

That way lies real wisdom.
