I’m an Executive Coach and leadership facilitator working with individuals & teams to help enable high performance. After nearly 20 years working in senior leadership roles in retail I realised that developing people and creating great teams who really deliver was the part of every role that I loved. So, I decided to focus on that.
I believe everyone has the ability to be a great leader and inspire teams to deliver outstanding results; but they do need to develop some skill and knowledge along the way to enable them to be the best they can be, especially as the future of work is changing. That’s where I come in.
As an Executive Coach: I work with individuals from emerging leaders to Board Directors to enable them to develop their authentic leadership style, overcome challenges and adapt their behaviour to be more effective in their roles. I explore clients’ behaviours, motivations and strengths, enabling them to understand how they can use these to enhance their performance.
As a Team Coach: I work with teams across all levels, enabling them to develop a high performance culture. I use Strengthscope™, DiSC® and Lencioni’s 5 Behaviours™ to create insight and allow teams to develop and deliver more effectively for themselves and their stakeholders.
As a Coach Supervisor: I work with individual coaches and teams of coaches to co create an environment where they feel safe to explore their work and stretch their thinking and skills, enabling them to develop their reflective practice and learning.
I have a flexible and robust coaching style and work with clients as a facilitator, raising self-awareness using conversation, supportive challenge and encouraging self reflection. I enable clients to work through any limiting beliefs and obstacles by drawing on a variety of coaching techniques, which I tailor to the client and situation.
I am pragmatic and results orientated and help clients understand their strengths, impact on others, and how they can use this information to achieve successful outcomes.
How I Work With You
Once you have made contact I will:
- Explain what coaching is, how it could work for you and the potential benefits to you and your organisation
- Outline my style of coaching and my values
- Agree the mix of coaching sessions (face to face, skype, telephone), and the time line for your coaching – typically 6-8 sessions.
Once we have agreed the basic “contract”, together we plan our first session and clarify your coaching needs. At this we will get to know each other to ensure we are compatible to work together; I will explain my role and confidentiality within coaching, and we will begin coaching and map out future sessions and support. I will regularly seek feedback from you, and make adjustments as guided by you. Towards the end of the programme we will review overall progress, successes and any outstanding steps still to be taken.
