Coach: Tony Barton
Imagine the best team you've been on - imagine if that was your current team.
I’m a tough love coach, which means I have a huge amount of compassion for what it means to be human and I know that it takes courage, commitment and purpose to make important changes in life – because I’ve done it myself. And I know you have too – and sometimes we need some support and focus and encouragement to do it again.
My specialty is team coaching because great teams make a world of difference, way beyond the individuals on the team. I’m in my early sixties and have plenty left in the tank – in fact it feels like I’ve only just begun! I have 25 years of corporate experience to board level, transitioned into a coaching and leadership training career in 2003.
I consider that I am good at what I do. I am known for having a good sense of humour, being grounded and for having a real passion for what I do. I am happily married with 3 grown up children and live in Birmingham and London.
Recent clients include: Siemens, Sony, ING Bank, KPMG, Freshfields, BDO Stoy Hayward, Mediacom, Sainsburys, Vodafone, Pfizer, Ericsson, WSP and Compass.

“Fresh ideas, fresh approach, like a fresh breeze Tony Barton brings spirit, heart and business smarts to his work with teams and organizations. I’ve had the great pleasure to work with Tony. I appreciate his insight and his creativity. In fact I can count on it.”
“With the coaching of Tony, I realized who I am, what is important in my life for me, and where I want to go. His powerful and challenging coaching, combined with ease, humor and warmth, allowed me to step beyond what I thought was possible, beyond the borders that I had build up for myself. My work, my private life and relationships – my whole life – improved, and I was able to break pattern in my behavior and thinking.”
“If you want fantastic support in reaching your true potential, Tony’s approach will give you it in spades. If you want to give up on yourself he won’t let you—ever!”
