James Macmillan

Coach / MBTI Specialist

I have over thirty years of business experience, the last ten of which have been spent working directly as a coach. I was a senior portfolio manager with the largest global asset management firm, leading teams and interacting daily with the top management teams of global listed businesses.
Having retrained I now work at executive level on a 1:1 basis and enjoy bringing challenge and new insights to a variety of clients. I have a particular fascination with language, as it can often reveal hidden meaning below the surface structure.
I am engaged at board level by two local charitable organisations; Grand Union Housing Group where I am Group Chair and the MK Parks Trust, where I chair the commercial subsidiary.
I also work as an associate for a emerging tech company that uses AI and Big Data to analyse and improve investors’ decision making processes.

My experience

I have 10 years coaching experience at executive and C-Suite level. The majority of my work has been 1:1 while I have done some group MBTI feedback sessions.
My approach is pragmatic, combining the experience I gained as a portfolio manager with tried and tested coaching strategies using a variety of models. These are designed to place the emphasis squarely on the individual being coached, focusing on the outcomes to be achieved. I typically start my engagements with an MBTI Step II assessment or a VoicePrint questionnaire which we will refer back to regularly during the course of the coaching.
Clients include a wide range of multinational and national corporations, charities and global consulting firms.
