Education & Experience
Craig is a PhD in Psychology with a specialization in Business; a Certified Positive Psychology Coach; and has over 15 years of experience as an executive coach. Craig is also certified in a variety of specialized assessment tools, including the Hogan Assessment Systems, the Leadership Effectiveness Analysis (LEA) as well as the EQ-i.

Verity specializes in leadership development coaching, applying an approach that identifies and builds upon people’s strengths, rather than concentrating on “fixing weaknesses”. We focus on the key leadership competencies and performance necessary for success within the organizational context. It is our belief that executives are often best coached by those with relevant executive experience, in addition to professional training in executive coaching techniques.
Our coaching approach is based on personal and collective (organizational) aspirations, goals and performance measures, where the coachee is responsible for his/her own learning and the coach is a resource and advisor.
