Lisa Westbury PCC
You may be feeling unrewarded at work, at an important career cross roads, or have lost your "mojo". You have worked hard to make a difference, but you have an underlying sense that you could be more purposeful and focused, if only you knew how!
Whether you have chosen change or it has chosen you, the time is right to create something more worthwhile for yourself and for others. Perhaps it's time to really step into your leadership, a new enterprise, or to make a more creative impact out there in the world.
And you can – if you are prepared to take the next step.
You have choices and a unique blend of talents. You can choose the work which makes your heart sing, manage the challenges which come your way resourcefully, and have productive relationships which matter to you.
Together we will get to know what is really important to you now, understand how to manage your blockers, and you will take the actions which will propel you into a more satisfying and energising phase of your life.
Let’s see if we can partner up and really enjoy this voyage of discovery.
I help other people make a real difference at work. Part of my mission is to help women build the confidence, leadership and opportunities to step into their potential. The other part is about helping teams work more collaboratively and productively together.
These have been threads through my career choices in publishing and then the public sector. Following some fairly major life events, I decided to get off the fence and really do what I do best in enabling others to live their values at work and beyond.
Coaching is a wonderful, enriching and creative process which allows me to work alongside some remarkable people in achieving more for themselves and shifting their impact on others.
> Career development coaching
I work alongside women who want a deeply satisfying career, to build their confidence and emotional resilience in moving forward and make their contribution in balance with the rest of their complex lives. This might be maternity transition, management and leadership, managing stress, re-focusing or a complete career transition programme. I facilitate coaching workshops for women and returners to work.
My clients come from a range of backgrounds - from the media to public sector and the law. What they have in common is a desire to be more intentional about their career and personal lives, to be more present, creative and alive to the possibilities.
> Organisational and team coaching
I work alongside leaders and change makers to help create the purpose, culture and behaviours which enable people to contribute their best. This might be working creatively on vision and values, changing behaviours, clarifying roles, toxic communication, resilience through change, leadership, partnership working and improving collaboration.
I spent 20 years working in corporate communications and change, most recently at the heart of Government where I worked closely with board members and senior managers to communicate and engage staff in new organisational strategies and policies.
This is where my passion for improving people's experience and the outcomes from change began. I believe in growing the best in people, in stretching their vision of what is possible and encouraging them to step into it.
