Graham Norris

Team Development Coach

Graham Norris is based in Somerset and works as a Life Coach and Performance Coach for Action in Change; he is a licensed Practitioner of Motivational Mapping ™. His experience of working in teams includes leading or working as part of a management team in the following areas: Communication Systems, Training Management, Recruitment, Education, Design and Product Development, and Sport Development.

Graham has worked within corporate bodies and has experienced how management structures and work culture impact on performance outcomes. When coaching Small to Medium sized enterprises, he recognises the practical needs of small teams, often in flat structures, and uses interventions that help them learn how to perform effectively in order to achieve key targets.

He has considerable experience of designing effective learning and development processes, gained from working  in a diverse range of business sectors. He believes that a focus on learning, not training, leads sustainable changes on how people behave within the workplace.

Graham is a graduate of the Bristol Common Purpose programme, which developed his awareness of how communities are connected, and which factors most influence key strategic decisions in Commerce, Health, Education, Local Government, and the Voluntary Sector etc. It also provided him with the knowledge and capability to guide and shape the future of organisations.

As a qualified Mediator, Graham brings creative problem resolution skills to his development work with individuals and teams. His life long passion for athletics saw him work for 3 years with UK Athletics where he managed the re-writing and production of a teaching resource that was delivered to every school in the UK.
