Busy senior staff and managers face a multitude of issues and demands. Executive coaching and consultation is now being widely used to increase the executives’ capacity to manage their role within the organisation. Importantly, it also offers a safe, confidential, reflective space to work on current areas of concern, manage dilemmas, and to improve performance.
My coaching style is flexible and tailored to the needs of each individual. At the start of each ‘contract’ I work with my client to establish their key development objectives for the sessions and the objectives for their role.
My client sets the agenda for the sessions. My role is to question and stimulate thinking on the issues, to provide signposts to other resources and give information where required. The issues covered can include managing relationships with management teams and boards, and with partner organisations, thinking through specific business and performance issues, work/ life balance and career development.
Many of my clients are longstanding ones. Others I work with for a defined period whilst they are seeking a career change, or to work through a particularly challenging period in their work and life.
I have been coaching and mentoring since 1993. I initially developed my coaching techniques as a senior manager and through Leadership Development activities. I was awarded a post-graduate diploma in “Working with Groups” from the Tavistock Centre (University of East London). (2005) I undertake professional supervision for my coaching work.
Clients past and present include:
Learning and Skills Councils;
Several Metropolitan, Unitary and District Councils;
