About me

Hello and welcome to my page.

We all need to work to live and because many of us spend more time at work than anything else, it is important that we enjoy it or it can make us miserable and stressed.  Coaching can be beneficial for anyone, no matter what you do or what level you work in an organisation.

The types of things I have helped people with include:

  • Improving working relationships with bosses and peers
  • Completing gap analysis between current skills and an ideal job and working on the skills that are missing
  • Identifying the ideal job
  • Production of action plans to improve productivity of a team
  • Identifying reasons for poor performance and what needs to be done
  • Finding solutions to difficult situations at work
  • Working towards a promotion and ensuring skills match the job description, which included in-house opportunities to develop skills
  • Identifying barriers preventing success of a project and what can be done to break them down
  • Working with managers both new and more established to refine their management skills
  • Improving confidence in managing a team
  • Assistance in job applications, CV’s and interview techniques
  • Improving performance as a result of negative feedback from a performance review
  • Helping staff understand emotional intelligence and how it impacts in the work setting

All of the people that I am and have worked with have felt so much better and empowered when they have taken back control of their job and their career.  If you can relate to any of this, please do not hesitate to get in touch to see if I can help.

Many organisations are beginning to spend their training budgets on 1:1 coaching.  If your need for coaching could benefit the organisation you work for, then please contact me and we can discuss the opportunity for me to speak directly to your organisation.

Hope to hear from you soon.
