How we’ll work together to achieve your goal.
The pace of change facing organisations and leaders is unprecedented. As is the complexity of stakeholders you need to manage. In the increasingly dynamic and uncertain world you operate in, where we too rarely stop to reflect on what is and isn’t driving our performance I will provide a confidential and non-judgemental space in which we will work together – in person, by phone or video. Leadership is often rewarding and exhilarating. But it can also be lonely and, at times, you may feel stretched beyond your natural levels of resilience.
I passionately believe that coaching can and should provide you with new insights, greater clarity and self-confidence and improved self-awareness. I will challenge your assumptions and any inconsistencies in your thinking and help you uncover any unstated motivations. To reach your goal and improve your effectiveness.
Often, an appreciation of the context is essential to effective coaching. When appropriate, your coaching goals will be explored with an understanding of the system you work within. And consideration given to how the change can endure once you're back in your workplace.
Trained in a wide variety of tools, my approach will be highly personalised, tailored to you and your circumstances. As will your plan of action, which will play to your strengths to achieve sustained change. Change that will continue long after our coaching relationship has ended. Change that can benefit both you and the organisation you work in.
You and your organisation’s time is precious and we will agree and review goals which are measurable, meaningful and, where appropriate, linked to your organisation‘s priorities. Clear, ethical contracting at the start of the relationship, with you and any key stakeholders, will ensure that we are all clear on ways of working and what success looks like. We will define milestones to this success and yes, I will hold you to account (with compassion!) to meet them. Progress isn’t always linear; I will support and encourage you on your journey.
And, if needed, I can draw upon a group of coaching peers who, like me, qualified in Executive Coaching at Henley Business School and all have significant leadership experience.
