About Russell

I’m Russell Harvey, and I am a Resilience Coach, Facilitator and Public Speaker.

My Purpose is to positively affect 100,000 people by the year 2025 (Right now I am at 14,003!). This could be by developing a client’s self-confidence, providing clarity and direction to their role, providing them with the tools and techniques to create the right conditions to apply “transformation” to their department or company, and much more. 

I have had a 20 year career in Learning, Leadership and Organisational Development and my overall style is influenced by positive psychology and a Strengths-Based approach.

When working with my clients, I aim to strike the right balance between:

·     Pragmatism

·     Creativity and Playfulness

·     Support, Challenge and Progress

In addition to the work I do with my clients I am the Chair of Governors of a local primary school and a volunteer with Leeds Young Authors. I also run public speaking and confidence workshops in schools.

Feel free to have a look at some of my [testimonials] to further understand my style and what it will be like working with me.

“It is obvious from the wealth of advice that Russell had to call upon that he has a strong background in coaching and the tool-sets to prove it. The coaching sessions gave me an opportunity to voice my concerns to an independent party but more importantly provide honest feedback and challenge some of my thoughts and feelings. He has also made my realise that rather than shut out such thoughts I need to change the values attached to them and be realistic about their potential impact. The coaching has also made me realise the importance of resilience to be able to handle difficult times and the skills needed to boost this.”

“Our sessions helped to give me clarity of thought at a time when I was struggling to carve out my career priorities.  I also struggle with self-belief and Russell helped me to look at my strengths and push my expectations of myself.  This extended beyond our sessions and provided me with tools that I still refer to when needed to reflect on my own performance and potential. My inner confidence is stronger and I am much clearer about my own strengths and recognise my own achievements.  Russell has played a key part in this.”
