Hi, I'm Rebecca, I believe in everyone's potential and their ability to grow, develop and move forward - I help unlock people's potential through coaching.
My passion is helping brilliant managers, get brilliant results and feel brilliant!
Are you a manager, leader, director, business owner, founder or HRBP who would like help overcoming challenges and to grow in confidence? Do you want to further engage your workforce? Are you spending your time worrying about & dealing with people issues with little progress? Do your people have potential but you can’t seem to unlock it?
Would you like to free up your time to balance your focus on business strategy and personal life? Take some time out to focus on you - to reflect, learn and grow? Be able to speak openly to a trusted, supportive 'critical friend'? See your team focussed on the business priorities, work better together, be happy and thrive at work? Increase productivity, get better outcomes and exceed customer expectations? Feel less stressed, more confident and enjoy work more?
I help managers, leaders & teams to be even more successful!
I do this by helping them explore, challenge & develop themselves. I support, challenge, act as a sounding board, offer honest feedback and provide focus, motivation & momentum aligned with clients' professional & business goals.
Having been in management positions, with little training or development when I was first promoted, I struggled with engaging my team, managing time and managing stakeholders - until I received coaching. This was my turnaround moment where I grew in confidence, managed difficult situations more effectively, motivated people and grew as a leader. Mine and my team's well-being and productivity increased and we celebrated greater successes...
This is what sparked my interest in coaching.
As a highly experienced and accredited coach with proven results, clients say they value my: personable, empathetic & pragmatic approach; humorous nature; encouragement & appropriate style of challenge.
By working with me, clients take steps towards their goals from the outset, reflecting and learning as they proceed, knowing they have someone they can speak openly to who is on their side and does not judge. They also feedback that I am ambitious for them, enabling them to take new actions, try new things out and work outside their comfort zone whilst knowing that I have always 'got their back'.
Clients value my quick ability to build rapport; my encouragement and appropriate style of challenge; and my dedication to them. I help clients to take steps towards their goals from the outset, reflecting and learning as they proceed, knowing they have someone they can speak openly to who is on their side and does not judge.
Accomplished in: management, leadership and executive one-to-one coaching; team development coaching and leadership & management training & development. I am able to do this face to face or virtually.

I'm a member of The Institute of Leadership & Management and the European Mentoring & Coaching Council, she subscribes to EMCC’s Code of Ethics. As part of my professional practice, I undertake regular coaching supervision and continuous professional development to ensure rigour in my approach.
I am also a qualified and experienced External Quality Assurer, auditing for ILM in coaching, leadership and management. I bring the current thoughts, approaches and knowledge from my ILM auditing role into my approach.
I have a wealth of experience in coaching, facilitation and training in leadership and team development - over 20 years. I work with organisations to help managers and teams unlock their potential and flourish at work, thereby achieving more. I have worked with both private and public sector organisations, nationally and internationally, so understand the challenges of the ‘real world’ and the pressures and complexity of work situations.
Clients are typically managers of teams who recognise the need to evolve to stay competitive. These leaders have approached me for help with overcoming work challenges, becoming ‘unstuck’ and engaging employees and stakeholders – in order to drive the team and the business. I bring my cross-cultural experience and expertise to understand and determine clients’ specific goals, culture and constraints to enable clients to work around these.
I am professionally accredited in executive leadership and management coaching; psychometric testing and profiling; and team development (qualifications are listed above). I use psychometric tools in both one to one and team coaching when appropriate. These help individuals and teams to understand their natural strengths and preferred ways of working. They can increase self-awareness, improve team effectiveness, strengthen internal and external relationships and improve communication. This in turn creates more respectful, productive and positive working relationships to enable people to connect better, collaborate more effectively, overcome challenges and conflict.

A Few of my Client Testimonials...
"I have really benefitted from the sessions. For me this was the first professional development I’d undertaken and whilst initially somewhat apprehensive about this, I soon got to look forward to our sessions. I have benefitted enormously."
James Croucher Transport & Commercial Manager, Print 4 Ltd
"I have learnt to take a much more confident step when applying myself to my new role. I realised I have made some very simple errors, and was given the positive space to process and try new things. I look at my role now from a different perspective. Now challenges are opportunities to learn and develop and not problems in my way."
Sales Office Manager, Newson Gale
"When I met Rebecca, I had not worked at a senior level in a university for several years. Her coaching helped me to navigate decision making processes in the university environment. It also helped me to reflect on my management and leadership style. We talked through constructively the areas which I was finding most tricky and worked through immediate next steps, without getting overwhelmed by the scale of the task I was facing in a new role. The coaching was invaluable in getting to grips with that role, managing challenging situations and increasing my confidence to make decisions. I was also practicing as a coach at the time and have continued to do so. I continue to draw upon the work I did with Rebecca to improve my own coaching practice."
Director, Higher Education Institute
"My coaching sessions with Rebecca Peat came at a critical time for me both professionally and personally and really helped me self-assess and review where I was and where I wanted to go with my career. It was also invaluable in helping me to reflect on achievements to date and take stock of what I enjoy doing as I stepped into the world of HR Consultancy. I was able to talk openly and confidentially which greatly helped to empower me to take actions and responsibility for my own future and importantly gave me the confidence to do this. Pleased to say that I have as result successfully transitioned into a new assignment which I am thoroughly enjoying. A leap that may well have been more daunting without the coaching support. I have received excellent support and counsel throughout."
Rashmi Patel, HR Consultant / Deputy Director of HR
"Coaching has helped me to gain confidence in my leadership and management skills and to help me trust my own judgement of situations and the best courses of action to take. I am slowly feeling more confident to lead my team with more self-assurance in the direction I am taking. I feel happier that I am doing the right thing and that I do know what needs to happen to move forward. Coaching has helped me to regain some of the confidence I had lost through various situations and has helped me to come through the other side of a very difficult year."
Kayleigh Glasper, Head of Philanthropy
"Rebecca facilitated a series of team coaching development sessions at Nottinghamshire Hospice to help the team work more effectively together. Her professional, supportive yet challenging approach enabled the teams to work through issues and challenges together and make significant progress towards the team goals. Sessions were enjoyable and open, resulting in enhanced team morale and sustained behaviour change, including taking ownership and creating a feedback environment. This really helped the Hospice to implement changes."
Mo Beeres, Deputy Chief Executive, Nottinghamshire Hospice
"Rebecca has been an amazing coach. I wasn’t sure coaching would be for me, but she has helped me so much. The goals were clear from the start, and her style and use of multiple techniques to coach me was the right amount of challenge, but she was also supportive. I have made significant progress with my goals since I’ve been seeing Rebecca, and this is evident in my professional achievements during this period. My confidence in my abilities has increased, and she has given me the tools to continue to develop. I would recommend Rebecca to any senior leaders who were interested in being coached."
Amy Smith, Associate Director, Admission and Applicant Experience, Nottingham Trent University
