finding solutions, improving results, raising performance & enhancing leadership effectiveness

Welcome to Trumble and Partners


We are an Executive Coaching and Leadership Consultancy based in the UK (London and Devon) but also operate globally both in person and virtually. We provide a fully bespoke ‘solutions based’ service, helping people unleash full potential, raise performance and have more influence within and outside their organisations; headed by Toby Trumble.


What is executive coaching? Our definition


Trumble & Partners definition - “Executive Coaching is a dialogue between a ‘coach’ and a ’leader’ with the intention of finding creative ways to address challenging problems, improve team and unit performance, accelerate progress on key initiatives, and advance the ‘leaders’ career and leadership effectiveness”


What makes people choose our services?


There are a multitude of reasons why people choose our services.

Some individuals believe that they are not moving themselves and their business forward as quickly as they’d like and therefore find it extremely advantageous in having an impartial confidant or ‘sounding board’ with which to discuss strategic issues and help make critical decisions with clarity and confidence. Thus getting them from ‘point A’ to ‘point B’ more rapidly and effectively.

Leadership is influence
— John Maxwell

Frequently, leaders are looking to improve their ability to have more 'power and influence' over others and their organisation, whether it being 'up, down or across' the company structure.

(We are specialists in the field of authentic ‘influence' and believe that it is one of the most important leadership attributes to master).

It could be a matter of wanting to develop their overall leadership skills and to 'shift' certain behaviours and perceptions in order to advance themselves and the organisation further.

Others find it as the ‘best’ and most successful way of setting highly ambitious and courageous goals and being held to account in 'actually' achieving them. 

Awareness is a key ingredient in success. If you have it, teach it, if you lack it, seek it.
— Michael Kitson

Leaders and high potentials may not be fully aware of how they are perceived 'up, down and across' the structure of their organisation and are keen to know the answer, therefore enabling them to improve in key focused areas and adjust any potential blind-spots. Resulting in improved leadership effectiveness and performance.

In some cases an individual may advance expeditiously and suddenly within the hierarchy of an organisation - brilliant in their specific field of expertise, but now realise that they require additional leadership and people skills in order to progress successfully and further in their new role.

There are many other reasons, but whatever they may be, the evidence is clear that our approach works at finding solutions, improving performance, accelerating leadership effectiveness and ultimately achieving positive and sustained results.


Who do we work with?


We work with successful people who are committed to becoming more successful including Leaders, Top Executives, Senior Managers, High Potentials (up-and-coming talent) and Business Owners.


Our approacH


Our forward moving 'no fluff' approach helps you find the solutions to whichever complex and diverse scenarios that may face you at any one time.

We act as a catalyst during the process enabling your goals, choices and actions to be made more quickly, clearly and more thoroughly thought through.

You set the goals, we help you score them.
— Toby Trumble

Our aim is to help you 'shift' any limiting perceptions, assumptions, behaviours or beliefs that you feel might be holding you back, therefore maximising your potential and performance.

In addition to our recognised executive coaching practices and with your permission, we can also advise and consult with our more direct ‘hybrid’ approach.

As a matter of principle, we adhere to a strict discipline of confidentiality and discretion throughout and beyond our engagement regardless of who the sponsor is - this is of paramount importance.


Ultimately, our focus is on solutions and results, both for you and your organisation and to provide an outstanding 'lasting return on investment'. 

To assist you further in achieving more positive and sustained results, we also have our practical and proven methodologies; that when combined appropriately, help to successfully deliver your desired outcomes.

A little of what we do

full Leadership 'Tune up'

Cover a coaching program based on any of the following topics, as warranted by our assessment and desired by you; engage and mobilise employees, resolve conflict, develop leaders succession planning, communicate with impact, influence effectively, set strategic direction, personal branding, develop stronger relationships throughout the organisation, create a high performance culture, juggle multiple priorities/manage time more effectively, and shift limiting perceptions that might be holding you back. We can cover other topics depending on the challenges you face.

Execute and move things forward more effectively

We know that the value of consistent, effective execution can be significant. Execution involves a number of factors, and our in-depth approach and methodology isolates the factors that can help you improve performance. As a result of working with us, you will gain new awareness about your strengths and potential areas for professional development helping you go from ideas to results more effectively and efficiently. Our aim is that you will 'shift' the way you influence other people, budget resources, set priorities, communicate, hold your team accountable, and set the tone. That way, results on the most important and strategic metrics for your organisation start to improve. More on execution and individual perceptions

Enhance your skills to successfully influence others and your organisation

We specialise in helping leaders, executives, managers, up-and-coming talent and business owners to be more influential and have more impact. The most successful leaders influence others to embrace and implement their ideas. Unfortunately, even at the top levels of an organisation, many leaders struggle with how to really influence others. There is an art and a science to influence, to knowing the right conversations to have with others in order to get results, while still keeping the relationship strong. We bring you an approach that helps you go from goal to result, and position yourself in the most powerful and effective way. Once you have completed our process, you will be pleasantly surprised at how easy it becomes to get things done, get everyone on the same page, set high expectations, and reduce the hassles you may face everyday.

Success in a new role / Transition

Success in a new role can be hard to achieve, particularly within the first 90-100 days. We help you gain clarity about performance expectations, beyond the formal job description, understand the culture, to avoid political landmines and adapt quickly to how things get done effectively. We help you in building relationships ‘up, down and across’ the organisation and in getting results at the right pace, while strengthening relationships and building trust and credibility. More on success in a new role

create a high performance culture

Once you get to the root cause preventing optimal performance, everything changes in the way your people and teams communicate, get things done and achieve results. We help organisations get to the root cause of high performance. That means going deep into the habits, routines, and behaviours that permeate how things get done. We help you define the way you want your culture to be in the organisation, and create discipline ‘up, down, and across’ the organisation that assures the highest levels of performance. If you are open to support in creating constantly improving levels of performance and results then we have a practical and proven methodology to help you succeed. More on high performance culture


As a result of working together, business owners have more time to spend with family and friends, feel less stressed, and get back in touch with the passion they had when they first started the business. We have a methodology that gets you in control of your time, set your business apart from the competition, turn growth into a science, and create a high performance culture that develops leaders who work together to grow your business. At the same time, we know that business owners sometimes feel isolated. They appreciate having an objective sounding board to brainstorm, share concerns, and resolve issues in a confidential, highly effective format.
