I specialise in working with you to develop more of your independent thinking with rigour, courage and imagination to accomplish what you set out to accomplish. Today more than ever it seems we are caught up in a world, short on time, tight on resources and a dependence on those more senior, more experienced or those who pay us.
Is to help you to develop your courageous and caring leadership where you acknowledge the profound responsibility of leadership for those who give their heads, hands and hearts to work with you.
Is 30 + years in people focused roles. I began my career as a PA within an Investment Bank. Later I returned to part-time education to acquire a post graduate diploma in Human Resource Management and began a new career within Human Resources, initially within an International Law Firm and later within Investment Banking once more. As part of my role as an HR Executive, I had the privilege of leading others. I was fortunate to work with very smart people who wanted to develop, to grow and take on new opportunities. That meant for every role I had, there was a successor when I left.
A later challenge came for me when I was to become a mother. My question was ‘how can I be the mother I want to be and serve my clients in the way I wanted to?’ At the time, I couldn’t see a way to do this, other than setting up my own practice. It was a natural step to re-qualify as an executive coach as I had been working with executives all my professional life.
My learning continues today in the fields of leadership, coaching and finding ways to juggle my family life, with now two teenage daughters, and my professional life.
Who I serve:
Emerging and Executive Leaders who are seeking to develop their people leadership skills. To inspire your team members. To develop a people-centric culture based upon people, purpose and performance and to create a sustainable business model. You are eager to learn more about yourself and are willing to make changes; to do more, different or better. You are willing to explore your current thinking and behaviours to develop new insights, skills and experiences for yourself in service of your leadership development.
Coaches who want to develop both your skills and practice. You are open to discovering for yourself, more about the coaching process and how to become accredited with the ICF. You are keen to develop your skills further and work with the clients that you chose to work with.
