From Manager to Entrepreneur to Executive Mindset Coach…
Godwin is the Director of Ascent Leadership, with over 15 years of experience in the business world. Before setting up his coaching business, he founded two businesses, Ascent Business Chambers, and an award-winning social care company, KTG Social Care.
Starting his career working as a commission-only sales consultant for the cobra group, he then worked with large corporates, such as Chelsea Building Society, Santander, and lastly in the Recruitment sector. During these periods he has held positions as Manager, Trainer, Consultant, and Directorship, a position which he holds today.
To further educate himself, he then joined The Coaching Academy, the world’s leading coach training provider, to become a qualified Personal Performance Coach, and accredited DISC Corporate trainer. In addition, he is a SFEDi Certified, and a fellow member of the Recruitment & Employment Confederation.
These new tools and techniques that he acquired, not only enabled him to take his purpose of work to a different level but to help others to live life to the full.
“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”
His passion about people, behaviours, attitude, values, and their mindset, made him want to learn more, so he trained as a certified NLP Practitioner / Timeline Therapist and an NLP Coach.
He has delivered corporate training sessions for the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, Moore and Smalley, and North & Western Chambers of Commerce. Godwin also was a judge for the most prestigious business awards in Lancashire “BIBA’s.
He believes that learning is a lifelong journey, and there no end to it.
Godwin's Coaching Approach
Godwin brings 15 years in a combination of business and coaching expertise, along with his NLP techniques and Disc psychological assessments, to get an insight into the individual.
With a belief that the coach and client ‘fit’ is essential – he provides a free 30-minute virtual discovery session upfront, to assess if he is the right coach for you, the client.
He works with individuals, teams, and organisations to achieve greater levels of clarity, resilience, connection, and creativity.
“Leadership is based on inspiration, not domination; on cooperation, not intimidation.”
What our Clients Say
“I first met Godwin at a business event where I had been seeking help for our company. I knew instantly that he would be the one to mentor us and to help shape our business.
Since then, I have been proven right as Godwin has not only provided assistance in future planning and strategy, but also in how such a plan should be implemented, whilst at the same time not making this process an extra ‘chore’.
All of the above is carried out with infectious enthusiasm, great humour, and a wonderful smile. I would therefore thoroughly recommend Godwin Anthony to help take your business forward”.

Having had a one to one with Godwin I was particularly impressed how his personality profiling helps not just with recruitment but with assisting with choices and enabling smarter work processes.
I would highly recommend Godwin and not just those who have relationship conflicts within their company or looking to recruit. Godwin has a great balance with his approach, personal and professional.

I have recently completed a development programme with Godwin Anthony. This helped build my confidence and assertiveness and allowed me to be able to give the team constructive feedback without creating negativity.
I will be building on these ideas to continue my management journey!
