Cornerstone UAE is located in the vibrant and progressive city of Dubai.
Our experienced resourcing and leadership consulting team is active in Executive Search and Executive Coaching across the Middle East & North Africa. As Office manager I have over 40 years of experience working in the UK, Europe, USA, Africa and S.E. Asia, including the last 9 years in the Middle East
We assist organisations in addressing their talent management opportunities and challenges, providing a comprehensive range of services from recruitment through executive coaching and leadership retention and development.
Most of my clients are middle to senior level executives, high potential leaders or C-suite executives. Many are faced with managing change not only within their own organization but often within their own sectors and the business world they operate in. Consequently, I support many of my clients in transitioning from their role to one in a very different ‘place’.
Retaining their unique leadership ‘DNA’ that has helped them secure the success they have already achieved, I draw immense satisfaction in supporting them in developing their talents and behaviours to achieve even greater personal and professional fulfillment.
I have been privileged to coach young and bright potential leaders through to experienced & successful businessmen and entrepreneurs who, in some cases have (initially) challenged the tangible benefits an Executive Coach can bring to them and their organization.
Irrespective of the ‘type’ of business and the sector it operates in, I find many potential and existing senior leaders face similar challenges to how they can stay, not only ‘ahead of’ but ‘in touch with’ the increasingly complex and sophisticated ‘game’. Two factors remain constant: leadership and relationship management. I am fortunate enough to support executives in achieving high standards in both.
I have a Bachelors Degree in Technology & Management from the University of Bradford.
I hold a Diploma in Advanced Executive Coaching awarded by the Academy of Executive Coaching and I am a Professionally Certified Coach (PCC) with over 1500 coaching hours with the International Coaching Federation.
My other credentials include:
- Master Trainer in Life Orientations Psychometric behavioural profiling.
- Accredited Hogan Assessor
- Accredited MiND Neuroscience Practitioner
- Accredited Leadership Multi-Assessor 360 Practitioner
- Member of the Association for Coaching
- Licensed Professional Selling Skills Trainer.
- Regular contributor to the ‘Entrepreneur’ magazine on the subject of coaching and leadership development.
My coaching methodology is people-centred and has been heavily influenced by my 30+ years of business experience, where I worked in senior HR, Business Development and General Management roles, across a broad range of sectors. I work with individuals and organisations that are seeking to utilise my coaching in support of clearly identified and aligned development goals for both parties.
My coaching style also reflects my background and knowledge from my global organisational experience.
My coaching is highly adaptive to the individual and organisational goals, utilising a challenging but supportive strategy and ultimately practical approach to achieve measurable and sustainable change!
