Tim Fortescue

Hey There!

I’m Tim Fortescue

I believe in coaching the entire person–which is a core principle of the CoActive coaching method.  So when someone comes to me for communication coaching, I don’t simply share best practices that someone could find on a blog post.  I coach mindset, emotion, how a person views themself as a communicator and leader…and of course I cover tactics and structures that help people communicate more effectively.  The end result?  Lasting change.  Transformation into a stronger communicator.  And a stronger you.  


My job is to help you be consistently you.

"The thing I appreciate about Tim’s coaching is that he can walk the line between better technique and being authentic. Both are important, but the authenticity part is critical for leaders. I trust him as a partner in developing any leader because of his approach. And it is great fun to work with him."

"Tim helped me find my authentic voice as a communicator, which was a huge step in my growth as a leader. I also brought him in to train my sales teams. He built virtual, in person, and blended training sessions for us long before the pandemic made that a more common thing. He understood our team culture and felt like a part of our team, which made working with him fun and more effective than we’ve seen with other partners."

"As a result of Tim's coaching, I've come to understand myself better and what's really important to me, which has built my confidence as a leader, and how I manage my time as a leader and parent. Tim goes far beyond the standard executive coaching toolset, and gives me practical, effective exercises and techniques to manage my self-critic, be better to myself, and lead authentically. His coaching is life-changing."

"Not only is Tim a powerful coach, trainer and facilitator, he’s also a wonderful consultative partner. He listened to our needs, shared ideas for what the solution might look like, and was such a collaborative, experienced, fun experience designer along the way. I can’t wait to have the opportunity to work with Tim again. I highly recommend working with him to help your leaders and managers level up! "

"I attribute a lot of my career growth to my ability to gather feedback and work on my weaknesses and improve. Tim has been instrumental in not only helping me improve skills, but he's also helped me figure out how to diagnose my own weaknesses and get to my own solutions. His approach is open and thoughtful, allowing me to be vulnerable, and at the same time, it's direct when it needs to be, ensuring that the green-eyed monster on my shoulder doesn't get the best of me."

"We’ve experienced off-the-shelf training experiences from many vendors, but working with Tim is different. He seeks understanding before creating a solution. Tim was able to accurately identify the actual pain point our team needed to solve— and then build a customized experience. Working with him is like the difference between buying an off-the-rack suit and working with a fine tailor to build something bespoke, perfectly fit for you. My teams always walk away with new skills and they enjoy working with Tim."
