Coaching can give you time and space in your busy life. When you book a coaching session you are giving yourself time to think, time to plan, time to reflect.
Coaching is not an intervention for poor performers. People in the field of sport don't worry about having a coach, they see it as a necessity, essential for continuous improvement. But in business sometimes people worry that having a coach is a sign of weakness. Not at all!
Strong leaders are those that are continually learning, looking to expand their own skills - not just in technical areas and in gaining knowledge - but in soft skills, personal management, confidence and leadership.
For many years I struggled with my own health and I made use of a coach to help me to feel better and to get a better balance with home and work life. When I was made redundant after 12 years in a senior position, I felt bereft and my confidence plummeted and I wasn't sure what my new future would be. Again, I turned to a coach to help me make decisions about what to do next.
Having a coach who is outside of your own organisation, outside of your family, outside of your friendship circle, can give you an unbiased space to share issues, talk through worries and make plans for what to do next.
As a coach I believe that everyone has the resources and creativity to resolve issues themselves. I help people to think about their challenges in a creative way, using a variety of tools to help people to see things from different angles.
Everything we discuss is confidential - you can say whatever you like to me and it won't go anywhere else!
I run a variety of different programmes, and you can also book single sessions or a block of time depending on what you need.
Some of my most dramatic shifts in my business life were as a result of having a great mentor. Mentors are different to coaches - they can give you the benefit of their own experience, and provide you with insights in to areas of work or life that you may never have experienced yourself.
As a mentor I can help you in a number of areas where I have had personal experience and can provide insights, stories and food for thought.
Are you in a new role? Are you a new parent? Are you navigating how to work remotely and have no clue how to lead via a laptop?
Maybe I can help? Part coaching, part mentoring, maybe some of my experiences as a leader, manager, maternity returner, new promote might help to shed some new light on your troubles.
I am a business coach with a passion for making sure that people are living their best lives. Too often we choose jobs over health or careers over our families. I know - I did.
As an accredited executive coach with over 25 years of senior leadership experience, I use a variety of different tools and techniques to help all my clients work out their own path to planning their own new future.
No session is the same, I don't have a one size fits all system. When we get together the coaching session is all about you and what you want, I help to facilitate your thoughts and give you insights in to what you really want to be doing.
Oh, and I have 2 teenagers and a husband. I like cooking, yoga and travelling (when pandemics permit).
