My mission is to help others to make the most of themselves and to understand what they want from life. I specialise in the creative industries, arts, culture and Museums sector although I have worked in Food & Beverage and Pharmaceuticals industries also. I have worked in the industries in which I specialise to CEO level and have over 25 years experience leading and managing these organisations as well as developing partnership internationally. I still consult within these industries so I understand them well. I am a women who has worked in a male dominated industry (Engineering) and understand the challenges of being in a minority and not well understood and understand that this is something people often have to manage as well as the job. I look at the whole person so although many clients come with work related challenges, I help my coachees see a bigger picture and their place in that landscape.
My practice is aimed at CEOs & senior executives, so it is usually connected to achieving organisational goals, developing relationships and/or bringing an organisation together in a shared purpose. Having worked at CEO level, managed change and led strategic plans & implementation I have empathy with the issues CEOs have and know what it is like to work with a Board. My approach is goal focussed whilst understanding the bigger picture. I assist with a present need but in doing so open a window to a greater source of energy that can support the Coachee into the future. I create a space for discovery and growth, where individuals are supported and challenged, to build awareness, experience new perspectives and create possibilities to change and overcome whatever stands in their way. I work on career transition, new appointments, cultural/organisational change, improving relationships & building teams.
