Host Craig West talks to Tim Ryan, Director at Ilume, about developmental coaching and Radical Candor – a communication and management model for the middle market that helps business owners develop their ability to Challenge Directly and Care Personally at the same time.

Tim Ryan is one of the most experienced and respected coaches in Australia. With a career spanning over 12 years in the industry and 30 years on business, Tim became widely recognised as “the vision and strategy guy”. With his open and honest style of coaching, Tim works effectively with all Leaders and Organisations – from small start-ups right through to ASX 100 clients – to help them navigate successful pathways to conquer mountains that were thought unachievable. His successful approach in Facilitation, Executive Coaching and Leadership Development has encouraged business leaders to help shift their mindsets and embrace new challenges. Tim launched ilume and Radical Candor in Australia in 2018.
