I am an experienced coach facilitator and organisational development consultant with international experience spanning strategic and operational work.
I have a strong track record of executive coaching in the Private, Public and Not for Profit Sectors.
My specific expertise in executive and personal coaching is:
Building confidence and resilience
Enhancing personal influence and impact
Emotional intelligence for developing high quality relationships
Managing and motivating teams
Leading and supporting people through change.
I have held a number of business roles (business development, marketing, client and service management, sales and HR) within a global IT services company, before moving into leadership and organisational development. I have implemented development programmes across Europe working with an international client base and supported board level leaders in strategic Organisational Development planning, team development and change management.
My Coaching Style
I am a calm and creative coach who can listen and understand your needs and goals. I adapt my approach to meet those needs.
Aware that change can be a time of stress as well as opportunity, my coaching will enable you to gain greater clarity into what is important, be courageous in your choices and move forward with renewed energy and focus.
I ask insightful questions that will support you in developing your potential. By enhancing awareness of your strengths and possible blind spots my approach draws on a range of coaching models and tools personalised to your development and objectives. I utilise the latest neuroscience research to ensure you are equipped with the best ways to apply learning to changing behaviours and achieving your goals.
Underlying my approach is a strong motivation to help people have the time and space for quality thinking and decision making amongst the busyness of 21 st century living.
