Denyse Busby-Earle MBA, BSc(Hons) - Positively You Personal & Business Coaching
With a passion for working with people, I will inspire, support and challenge YOU in understanding and making the shifts that you aim for, helping you to:
- Make decisions with insight and personal confidence.
- Maximise business performance through enhancing trust and commitment.
- Start your path to personal confidence and inspiration today.
Prior to establishing Positively You in 2008, I held directorships with Royal Mail Group, the world’s largest food and drinks manufacturer (Nestlé UK Ltd.) and started my career with one of the top 3 global petrochemical companies (BP).
I also held Non-Executive Directorships with Young Enterprise UK, The New Deal and Fair Cities, helping disadvantaged groups to find and sustain employment.
My clients range from CEOs, Board level Directors and senior employees to newly qualified graduates, with an approach tailored individually to encourage boosting self-awareness.
What I do
I offer executive and personal coaching using a range of client-centred strategies by stimulating discussion, encouraging reflection and supporting actions that help my clients to adapt in ways that they choose to.
Through a better understanding of how patterns of thought and action have developed over time, I can help you to learn how to respond through conscious choice rather than by falling into old patterns that perhaps no longer serve you well.
Clients gradually make the shifts that for them are sustainable and allow them to continue to be resilient, grow and develop beyond the period of their coaching programme.
- Do you need help with choosing or changing your career path?
- Are you at a crossroads in your life and unsure of which opportunity to take?
- Are you faced with a change that you don’t feel prepared for or feel too tired to cope with?
To cope effectively we need to be in peak condition. When we experience emotions such as fear, anger, disgust, shame and sadness there is a propensity to escape or avoid the person, issue or situation that challenges us. This can affect confidence, self-esteem, memory, creativity and strategic focus. Conversely love, trust, excitement and joy promote these.
I can help you to be more self-aware, to learn to reverse habits and practices that you believe no longer serve you well and ensure you have the resources to manage your personal changes confidently and successfully.

Corporate Coaching & Consulting
Executives typically seek coaching when they feel that a change in behaviour, style and practices for themselves or their team members could make a significant difference not only in their personal performance, but the performance and health of the organisation
Executive coaching is particularly effective in times of change. Typical engagement purposes include:
- High potential development
- Implementing organisational change
- Leadership skill development
- Performance management
- Role transition including retirement
In Corporate Coaching at organisational level we are engaged to work with teams on programmes such as
- Maximising team effectiveness
- Transforming organisational performance and health

Small Business Coaching
As a small business owner, you probably wear many hats from strategy and visioning through to delivery of your product or service. The more effective you are at selling and sustaining great relationships with your customers and consumers, the more successful your business will be.
With many small businesses being family run or managed with a small team, there is the risk of business being stifled or suffocated by well-meaning friends and family whose thoughts aren’t aligned or have very different perspectives of the same issues. Recognising what is right for your business success starts with YOU, and drives the ability to work with others who will challenge you, nurture your creativity and help to grow and sustain a business in the way that you dream of it being.

What to Expect - How Coaching Works
I work with you from the outset to build a strong coaching partnership, kicking off with an exploratory first session to help you to reflect and discuss what’s most important to you and others who might be affected, what, if anything, you would like to get done, and by when.
We contract from the start of our relationship, at the opening of each session and during sessions of one to one coaching. This helps in moving towards your desired goal and enables me to be responsive to changes along the way e.g. you may uncover a pattern in your behaviour that you had not acknowledged before, and once recognised may choose to work on changing your general approach to certain situations.
Some people experience dramatic transformation in 2 or 3 sessions, whilst others may opt for a more step by step approach. You might even decide to choose a longer programme if embarking on a significant change affecting many facets of your life or supporting large scale change within your organisation.

"I chose Denyse because she takes a holistic approach to lifestyle goals and future plans, taking into account feelings and what brings fulfilment as well as the bare facts of career history and qualifications etc. She was a great coach! It's not easy knuckling down to identifying goals, drafting CVs, practising interview questions and so on, but Denyse had just the right mix of encouragement and firmness to make the process as painless as possible. Her suggestions were always constructive and helpful. We achieved much in a relatively short timeframe and I found the sessions valuable but also enjoyable."
Equity Partner, Global Law Firm
"After an initial meeting with Denyse, there was no doubt in my mind that I would greatly benefit from her expertise in further sessions.Denyse has the ability to provide different perspectives on one’s situation. She asks pertinent questions, making one think about perceptions of the self and of others. One is able to stand back and view a situation as objectively as possible, from different angles. The life-coaching sessions were invaluable. Denyse is an excellent facilitator, guiding a person to realise their own strengths, their interests and preferred working environments. I would truly recommend anyone, who is at some crossroads in their lives, be it professionally or personally, to seek the counsel of Denyse. Furthermore, for women – she is a fantastic role-model."
Working mum (teacher)-returning expatriate
“I have always been impressed by Denyse’s professionalism, sensitivity and intuition, all qualities that she brings to her work as Consulting Director of Positively You. Added to this is a lightness of touch and sense of humour which I would value also in a coaching relationship. I would have no hesitation in recommending Denyse as a coach.”
