Co-Coaching for Teams
What could be within reach if your team was fully aligned to its purpose, and able to communicate and collaborate in ways that lead to systemic impact? We work with leadership teams looking to supercharge how they work together, positively impact the culture around them and curious to harness their collective capabilities. Our game-changing co-coaching sessions leave teams equipped with critical skills for exceptional performance. Read case studies.
How would you feel if you stood together amongst a group of trusted peers, each bringing their collective wisdom and knowledge to the knotty, complex challenges you face. We create and facilitate peer networks of leaders like you. These impactful sessions bring together groups of three to four peers each month where they share and address challenges, insights and approaches to accelerate their personal and organisational impact. Read case studies.
We design and delivers compelling courses and learning experiences that support individual, group and organisational development. From our packaged Working Smarter and Ready to Lead programmes being delivered across the UN and Thomson Reuters to our fully bespoke courses such as the Holding Courageous Conversations Programme designed for Luminate. Our courses are highly interactive, impactful and create long lasting and meaningful change. Read case studies.

Culture & Tools
I really enjoyed working with James. From the start, I knew I had found a coach who was completely committed to helping me grow, listening actively to my doubts and concerns and drawing out insights to reframe my approach to leadership.
Chief Executive, Mental Health Foundation
He became a critical thought partner who really helped me during a crucial transition in my career.
Chief Operating Officer, FreeWheel
16 Degrees and James has been integral to coaching the OpenCorporates Exec Team, guiding our values and culture. My direct work with James has strengthened my approach to leadership and had a direct impact on the success of our business overall.
I particularly value the way James steered me in finding my own clarity and confidence in alternative forms of leadership and pushing myself out of my comfort zone.
Director, Financial Transparency at Luminate
I began by wondering if coaching would be useful, and now wonder why I ever thought I could succeed without it.
Public Health Leadership. Intergovernmental Relations.
His style of coaching is unique and innovative, taking a design led approach which is exactly what I needed to help me uncover what drives me, what opportunities I can make the most of, and how to get out of my comfort zone.
Insights and Learning Lead, The Wellcome Trust
Having someone to bounce ideas off, listen to the struggles, help me recognise the positive things that have happened when it's a whirlwind has been invaluable.
The encouragement to test, to try out new ideas by trial and error, and to explore areas previously unexplored was terrific. 16° provides a great balance of support and challenge, so I always felt that it was helping me to grow while also keeping me safe.
