Praesta Insights Publications
Praesta typically works at any one time with around 500 senior executives. These relationships give us exceptional insights into the issues facing leaders across many sectors, industries and organisational contexts. The breadth of our coaching work also means that we are able to identify emerging issues quickly and put them into perspective.
As well as informing our day-to-day coaching, we capture some of the most important themes in pamphlets, tools for our clients and published books.
