Dr Malcolm McGregor




Malcolm has worked in international leadership development for 22 years. He has worked with clients across public, private, retail, aviation, airport management, explosive services to mining, funeral, catering, and high-tech sectors across the UK, the Americas, Europe, Pacific Rim, and Australia (see below for more). Malcolm possesses core expertise in executive leadership development as a coach and facilitator. He describes himself as a ‘pracademic’ emphasising his dual focus on delivering high quality impactful interventions that connect knowledge and skills with industry-derived impactful research.

Malcolm has worked with Broadreach, an international boutique-consulting firm based in the UK, in the areas of senior leadership development; strategy development and execution; high performance team collaboration; complex problem solving and change management. He is driven by a passion to help individuals and teams fulfil their potential by finding their untapped strengths and capabilities, to reach and sustain peak performance. To do this, he uses a broad range of research-based diagnostics to inform his approach to one-to-one coaching: programme design; facilitation and high-performance team development. He works with high potential executives to provide a broad range of critical cognitive capabilities required to enter and thrive in today’s C-Suite.

Malcolm’s facilitative style enables teams to reach a shared consciousness and understanding on the complex problems they are tasked to solve. Using a range of thinking techniques that embrace internal diversity and collaboration that promotes productive disagreement, the team develop empowered implementation to the decisions they reach.

As an executive coach, Malcolm has experience over many years gained practically at CEO, Director, and senior executive levels as well as through extensive research that resulted in the attainment of a Doctorate. His focus is on heightening self-awareness to augment clear thinking on purpose so that business and personal goals are prioritised in balance to achieve critical objectives whilst enhancing well-being. To drive continuous growth and self-sustaining improvement, a strong reflective practice involving regular feedback gathering is encouraged.
