    Packages

    Chemistry Session (free) - Leadership Coaching, Career Coaching

    1 session, 0h 30

    I find it important to initially meet (Skype), to establish a mutual level of trust and credibility, thus I start with a free introductory/chemistry meeting. At this stage we will:

    - Discuss your current opportunities and challenges
    - Define the scope of the relationship
    - Identify priorities for action
    - Establish specific desired goals; and
    - Establish the type of coaching that is right for you

    Personal Coaching - Leadership Coaching, Career Coaching

    6 sessions, 1h 30 each

    This package is for those that wish to undertake a personal coaching journey (not through your company).

    Coaching is conducted on a 1:1 basis, where we work together on agreed targets to develop your individual performance capabilities. I may recommend activities or resources between the scheduled sessions, to help you achieve your goals. These may include relevant articles, questionnaires, or activities that support your thinking or actions.

    A coaching journey runs for six sessions (a 1.5hr session every 3-4 weeks). The first session can be doubled to deep dive into our topic. We can adjust this to a time scale that suits your workload and goals. Time between sessions allows you to think, reflect, practice new behaviours and carry out intended actions.

    All coaching operates under a confidentiality agreement and within each coaching session, at coaching midpoints and at completion, there is opportunity to give and receive feedback on the coaching journey.

    Executive Coaching - Employee Engagement - Leadership Coaching

    6 sessions, 1h 30 each

    According to Gallup (2013), only 13% of employees worldwide are engaged! The cost of this is staggering in terms of lost productivity and the cost of replacing employees. On the other hand, engaged and mobilised employees are more motivated, productive, happier and more satisfied. This leads to improved retention, less absenteeism and increased company growth.

    Together we work through my methodology of simple but powerful leadership practices that have maximum impact on your ability to engage and produce immediate improvements in your employees’ performance.

    This package is aimed at for those who:

    • Believe that you are not getting enough productivity or engagement from your employees or team.
    • Are getting negative feedback from your employees or team.
    • Have a firm technical background but little previous experience or development in authentically engaging and mobilising employees.
    • Have employees or a team who show signs of low productivity, low morale, and/or higher-than average turnover.
    • Have issues recruiting, retaining, and developing top talent.
    • Wish to improve their leadership, communication and engagement skills.

    Executive Coaching - Overwhelm and Time Management - Leadership Coaching

    6 sessions, 1h 30 each

    Professionals in organisations of all sizes share with me that one of their top challenges, as a leader, is that they feel overwhelmed. There are multiple demands on their time, competing priorities and personal high standards, all making it difficult to feel in control.

    I have a proven methodology that assesses at exactly how you spend your time now, and then sets specific goals for the most valuable uses of your time as a leader in your organisation. Together we redesign your time, set boundaries, and put key behaviours in place so that you get back in control of your time as appropriate for your role as a leader.

    This package is aimed at for those who:
    • Are feeling overwhelmed
    • Are spending too much time at work
    • Feel you have too many meetings, fires, interruptions, etc.
    • Want to be more productive

    Executive Coaching - Leadership Coaching, Career Coaching

    6 sessions, 1h 30 each

    This package is for those that wish to undertake a coaching journey via their employer. Outcomes can possibly include organisational goals or behaviours wanted by your employer.

    Coaching is conducted on a 1:1 basis, where we work together on agreed targets to develop your individual and business performance capabilities. I may recommend activities or resources between the scheduled sessions, to help you achieve your goals. These may include relevant articles, questionnaires, or activities that support your thinking or actions.

    A coaching journey typically runs for six sessions (a 1.5hr session every 3-4 weeks). The first session can be doubled to deep dive into our topic. We can adjust this to a time scale that suits your workload and goals. Time between sessions allows you to think, reflect, practice new behaviours and carry out intended actions.

    Coaching speciality details

    Clients come to me for reasons such as: I'm not being heard, my team aren't doing what I need them to do, I'm not having the influence or presence I need, I'm overwhelmed and struggling with my time, I'd like more confidence in my leadership abilities, I need to transition smoothly, I need to step up and be more strategic, I'd like to be more resilient and handle stress better, I need to change direction but I'm not sure which path to choose. For these reasons, I work primarily with senior leadership, in areas such as the leaders dashboard (vision, mission, values), engaging employees, overwhelm and time management, conversational flexibility and influence, powerbase (networks and relationships), behavioural change, outplacement and career transition. Of course, there is a whole grey area in between and your challenge will be as unique as you are. I primarily work in the Architectural, Design and Construction sectors, as I have over 20 years working in this area. However, a lot of people identify as "visual" and "creative" as well as appreciating a straight forward A-B action-oriented approach. As a women who has worked in a male-dominated industry I also appreciate what it takes to rise in a career, especially with family or carer responsibilities.

    About me

    About me

    My peers describe me as friendly, professional and down to earth. I am New Zealand born and moved to the UK in '97, now living in North London with my partner and kids. After 20+ years in the construction industry I decided to transition my career, engineering a move from consulting to mentoring and, after extensive training, coaching. I love my career and you'll find working with me to be a safe, confidential environment that is action-oriented, whilst remaining open and supportive.

    Coaching method / approach

    Clients describe me as friendly, down to earth and professional. Like many of my clients I value both creativity and structure. I understand the challenge of balancing technical work with leadership and management responsibilities. I collaborate with clients to create innovative tools and solutions that are bespoke to their needs. My coaching is action-oriented, whilst remaining open and supportive. We will co-create our sessions so that you get what you need and I adjust my approach and my toolkit to suit your needs. There is plenty of opportunity to review at every session and at end.
