At Skilful Leaders, we understand that there's no template for leadership and that different contexts need different approaches.

Leading well in all situations requires a sense of
inner stability.


We help leaders everywhere do the essential inner work that makes this possible.

Never has it been more critical for leaders to guide themselves and their organisations skilfully into an uncertain future.

And yet many well-established leadership methodologies leave leaders ill-equipped to translate theory into action

at the messy interface between business and relationships - the place where things get done.

Our aim at Skilful Leaders is to leave you feeling resilient and resourceful.

You have a range of simple, immediately applicable ways of being centred, clear and creative,

so that you can lead change, inspire people and bring them with you in any circumstances.

The face and founder of Skilful Leaders, Sally-Anne Airey, is a highly skilled leadership coach with lots of hard-won practical wisdom and over 35 years' experience as a Royal Navy Commander, international business leader, and mindfulness teacher.


In response to the very real need all leaders have for more time and space to think, Sally-Anne has developed a methodology, Mindful Command®, to help leaders everywhere create the inner space to see more clearly and holistically in any situation.

We help leaders become the best version of themselves, so that they forge great working relationships, make the right decisions, act wisely, nourish wellbeing and thrive in the face of constant challenge - in a way that works now and for the future.



A professional coach for over 12 years, Sally-Anne has an Advanced Diploma in Coaching from The OCM in Oxford. She is a Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) in the UK, and a certified Mindfulness at Work Trainer and Retreat Leader. She also speaks and writes on leadership and Mindfulness.


Others describe her as calm, compassionate, naturally empathic, sensitive to the whole person, incisive, intuitive, gentle, subtle and focused. She can engage strongly with you, opens your mind to new possibilities, asks powerful questions and helps you to deepen your emotional and social intelligence.


Sally-Anne works in association with other experienced coaches who share her philosophy and values.
