My philosophy

I believe in working hard to ACHIEVE GREAT THINGS AND IN HAVING FUN while doing IT. My aim is for our coaching together to not only achieve - and exceed - your desired GOALs but to also be rewarding and enjoyable.

 

MY BACKGROUND

Before becoming an Executive Coach, I held senior leadership and management positions at BBC Worldwide, Warner Bros and Shine Group, where I was most recently Managing Director of Shine Network.  I enjoyed over 16 years working in complex commercial and creative environments, delivering to stretching targets and building excellent relationships with senior clients, colleagues and stakeholders. This first-hand experience helps me to help you with the complexities and issues you face and manage.

After studying Authentic Leadership at Harvard Business School, I decided to change career. Now I focus fully on my passion for people and their professional development. I have since graduated from the highly-regarded Meyler Campbell Business Coach Programme and am a Certified Business Coach with the World Association of Business Coaches.

I previously graduated from Cambridge University with a Modern Languages degree and enjoy working with international companies and cultures.

 

MY APPROACH

Clear, bespoke, results-focused.

My approach is tailored to you and your business goals. I don’t have a fixed process or one set of tools. My flexibility allows me to draw on a variety of techniques and approaches to provide what is right for each individual leader.

Getting to clarity is an important part of my approach. Whether you know where you're going or you don't, I'll help you articulate and hone clear goals and together we'll get there. If you're very creative, a touch complex or even chaotic, I can help.

  • At the beginning, we'll look at what you want to achieve and clarify goals

  • We'll review the coaching impact midway so we can adjust to best meet your goals

  • We'll clearly evaluate the impacts and results together at the end of our engagement 

I focus on us delivering together the results you want and need. You will find the motivation to make the changes that will work for you and stick.

 

My style

My warm and empathetic style quickly enables us to develop a strong, trusting relationship. I provide a confidential space for you to step back and switch off from your busy, connected life to truly switch on your best thinking.

I listen and ask incisive questions to support, stretch and challenge you. While my style is mainly non-directive, I also provide honest feedback, observations and insights. This helps improve the quality of thinking which in turn improves the quality of performance and outcomes.
