Unlock Potential & Remove The Obstacles To The Best Work Of Your Life.Future Proof Labs/Coaching is a high performance coaching practice for ambitious individuals and teams striving for better.
It’s Not The Mountain That We Conquer, But Ourselves.
Future Proof Labs/Coaching exists to unlock potential and remove the obstacles to consistently high performances and achieving more exceptional outcomes.
The future is unpredictable. Change has changed. Success does not happen in a straight line. The gap between what can be imagined and what can be accomplished has never been smaller. Future Proof Labs/Coaching exists to equip you with the skills and mindset to achieve consistently better performances in the moments that matter most. We help ambitious individuals and teams navigate three key areas:
Who are you at your best?
Growth is not just about learning and acquisition, but also unlearning and reshaping the mindsets, behaviours and personal stories that no longer serve us well.
Building a progressive and resilient mindset to shift beyond the safety of our comfort zones to more purpose led, value driven performances.
Performance = Potential - Interference.
Imposter Syndrome, Perfectionism, Managing the Inner Critic, Destructive Narratives can all take up valuable resource blocking you from peak performances.
Coaching helps increase awareness in the moment, create better understanding and deliver more effective decisions and action.
Great performances come from moments that give us fulfilment, where we feel joy, time flies and the work is effortless.
Coaching helps re-align purpose, mastery and identity, and move us from what we do giving meaning to who we are, to who we are giving meaning to what we do.
We believe peak performance (and the best work of your life) sits at the intersection of purpose, mastery and identity.
Excellence comes from small behaviours and habits repeated consistently. Real growth and transformation comes from escaping the inertia of change.
Understanding the hallmarks of peak performance in myself and others has been a passion since I can remember.

An experienced and highly rated performance coach, I work with
growth-minded people and teams to unlock potential and remove the obstacles to high performance across creative and innovation led industries and competitive sport.
I draw on 25+ years international experience working with creative and innovation led businesses across Europe, the Americas, the Middle East and Asia Pacific, to help drive competitive
advantage and growth for some of the world's most iconic brands including Apple, Burberry, Nike, Vice Media, Google, Unilever and EY amongst others.
My greatest achievement is being a loving husband, proud father and fiercely competitive weekend athlete.
‘Christian took one of my best creative directors who was struggling and instilled a belief that unlocked the potential that I knew was in there.
Having an external, experienced voice outside my company was the key difference.
It gave us the ability to show the creative that we really cared about their future development.
Christian has a unique ability to bring out the best and we are now reaping the rewards.
Could not recommend him enough.
Christian's warm personality and engaging style - combined with a deep expertise - is unlike any other coach I have ever worked with. I knew from the moment I met him that I wanted to work with him - and it was an honour to have done so.
I learnt more applicable tools and techniques working with Christian than I ever could just reading books. Christian's insight, approach and advice blew my MBA right out of the water. Case closed.
Do yourself, your career and the wider world a favour and work with Christian. If you're even remotely on the fence about working with a coach, I highly suggest you stop procrastinating and get in touch with Christian now.!
I’ve been a proponent of executive coaching for a number of years and having experienced a number of different methods and approaches, I feel qualified to say that Christian is an exceptional practitioner.
Working with him over recent years has constituted the best investment I could have made during the pandemic, as his skills and expertise have been invaluable in guiding me through what I and many of my peers regard as undoubtedly the most challenging period of our professional lives.
As well as helping me navigate existing issues ranging from managing the inner critic through to imposter syndrome, he was able to set me on a growth path through developing a resilient mindset at such a critical point in my development. That ability to pose the right questions, frame my focus and ultimately develop a progressive perspective has been absolutely invaluable.
Future proofing our 100+ year old global energy regulator had exceeded all targets and expectations. However, our concerns that the team was no longer fit for purpose had exposed it to internal and external conflict, culture and leadership issues. Christian quickly helped us identify key obstacles and interference getting in the way of the next phase of our evolution, and helped us define key objectives and align the team around critical strategies for delivering growth. He importantly helped remove barriers to transparent communication and trust between key stakeholders.
As an internationally awarded creative director, my career began to struggle with the weight of expectation and additional responsibility for the performance of others. Christian’s coaching helped me address my feelings of Imposter Syndrome, self-doubt and criticism and micro managing of my team (insecurity leading my team). I was able to increase awareness and understanding of faulty reactions to negative situations and feedback, and take responsibility for more useful responses. I began to focus on the things in my control and reconnect with the joy of creativity and solving problems.
Unlearning faulty habits and mindsets created better work-life balance, framed failure as learning and established greater empathy for and connection with my team. It was life changing!
Christian and I met at a critical juncture in my career as an elite football coach, after being made redundant from my club of 10+ years.
He created a safe and supportive space and asked powerful questions, helping me get to the heart of my purpose and values, and how this connected to the success and exceptional performances I had created previously in myself and others. The evidence based approach restored my resilience and focus, and confidence to stretch beyond my comfort zone to secure a leadership role at Australia's most famous sporting club. Our coaching sessions continue and have helped enormously with the transition, shaping my thinking around the strengths and values I bring to a new program and group of players.
When I was at a crossroads in my career, Christian’s coaching helped me to successfully navigate different career paths and challenges I was facing. For example, I was considering changing industry, moving to a new country, or pivoting to a different career altogether. Christian’s expertise and understanding of what it takes to perform in highly demanding senior executive roles, informed highly insightful questions and observations he challenged me with were game changing. Christian helped redefine my value proposition, aligning it more closely with my core values. This was game changing as I became more focused and precise in my job search and how I presented myself to future employers. Christian’s warm personality meant that each coaching session was both fun and rewarding. If you want to take your career to the next level get in touch with Christian now!
