Executive Coaching and Leadership Development

As a manager, you want to see a healthy, vibrant culture in your team. You want to develop a workplace where people thrive, and teamwork flourishes. An environment that attracts and retains the most talented and motivated staff so that together you can achieve great results. You want to see your staff develop and grow – knowing that you are helping them along the way. If you’re already doing this, you’ll know how rewarding it can be, and you’ll understand why great managers love their work.

But all too often I hear from managers who are feeling stress and overwhelm in their work. A positive workplace culture doesn’t evolve by itself – it takes time, effort and skill. Finding and keeping the best employees is challenging. And there will be times when you need to have difficult conversations with staff around performance, attitude or interpersonal conflicts.

Often, there’s a lack of training or guidance for managers, in all sorts of companies and organizations – both large and small. It can be a case of sink or swim – with few options to turn to for support.

This is where I come in.

I’ve been in your shoes as a manager – both in the corporate and the non-profit world. And, as a coach and trainer I have worked with people from many backgrounds to help develop their people-management skills. My approach combines an in-depth assessment of your leadership and work style, with one-on-one coaching, focused on the development of skills that will greatly enhance your ability to manage your team to achieve success.

My programs are designed to bring out your innate strengths and to develop your skills in the areas that challenge you. Here are some of the results you can achieve through working with me:

  • Greater confidence in motivating your team into action
  • Skills and strategies for effective performance management
  • More collaboration among your team members
  • Higher levels of talent retention
  • A more positive workplace culture
