I am a qualified and highly experienced Leadership Coach and NLP Master Practitioner having worked with many different kinds of professional people since 2004, from business owners to sales managers and CEO’s.
I am also the author of 'Soft Skills for Strong Leaders; Ten Steps to Management Success', published in October 2013
I specialise in helping managers and leaders to prepare for, and confidently deal with, the responsibilities and demands of a senior position.
Over the years, I have noticed that people who are good at what they do are naturally selected for promotion. But just because they are technically good at what they do, it doesn’t mean that they will be a good man-manager, or the best leader.
There are many reasons why someone chooses to work with a coach. They…
- Are overwhelmed
- Have fluctuating confidence levels
- Feel stressed
- Want to prepare for promotion
- Have a poor work/life balance
- Need to make a career decision
- Want strategies to deal with difficult situations
- Need to improve their personal impact
- Lack the skills to empower and motivate their team
Coaching topics tend to include: Leadership styles, personal brand, authenticity, personality profiling, confidence, building and managing a new team, handling conflict, decision making, strategic thinking, managing stakeholders, persuasion and influence, time and stress management.
If you're not sure what you want to focus on, what the real issue is, or whether coaching is right for you, then just pick up the phone and we can have a chat - with no obligation.
Here are some recent testimonials
“I was transitioning into a Senior Commercial Leadership role. Taking the leap to lead a European organization, make critical business decisions, and build a dynamic and progressive culture was an extremely daunting task. Helen helped me make the transition by getting me to think more deeply about my inherent skills and capabilities. Compartmentalizing the key responsibilities, deliverables, and expectations and systematically analyzing where I would excel, where I would meet expectations, identifying the gaps and the necessary plans/strategies in place to overcome initial challenges. Helen's coaching was fundamental in my successful leadership planning for the business and guided me to a point where I was more able to project my thoughts and strategies to my leaders and my employees. The insightful, direct, honest and knowledge-based approach helped me to make substantive changes in how I effectively engaged with and influenced others. An asset to my personal development.” Everton Robinson, Director of EMEA Sales - Life Sciences and Diagnostics at NanoString Technologies, Inc.
“Hi Helen, remember I talked about hosting our national training event at our last session and my anxieties and stage fright concerns? Well thought you may want to hear how I got on… I was amazing! Surprisingly I had no nerves, was über calm and collected and actually really really enjoyed it. So thank you. I used some of the techniques we spoke about and for the first time overcame a real fear I've been carrying around for years!” Senior Leader at ATOS Healthcare
