Coaching Approach

I am a calm and attentive listener.  I provide open and honest conversation, free from judgement, in a safe and confidential space, to allow you and your team to focus on exploring, defining and achieving your goals.  I provide a forum for reflection, perspective, and insight; the opportunity to step away from interference and focus on what really matters to you and your business. I provide challenge and support to you and your team in achieving clarity of purpose and realizing professional and personal growth objectives.

Typical Clients

My clients span the private, public, and social sectors. I work with leaders and founders to support them to articulate and achieve their vision for their organization.  I also support people within organizations to engage with and commit to the vision and culture of their organization. Through building this awareness and alignment, I support individuals and businesses to achieve sustainable growth together.

Results Achieved

I supported an experienced team leader to build a high-performing team in a high-pressured volatile and uncertain environment, improving team dynamics and interpersonal relationships and demonstrating cultural sensitivity.

I worked with the founder of a successful business to prepare for succession by developing and preparing the leadership team and embedding the vision and values of the organization.  This enabled the founder to focus on their vision for the future both within and outside of the business, and to put together an implementation strategy and timeline.

I enabled a large organization to retain a high potential woman by supporting her to reflect on opportunities to balance the demands of her personal and professional life in order to continue to progress within her organization in a different capacity.
