More about my approach to coaching...

As well as ‘development from within’ being a personal journey for a coachee I also see it as being part of talent realisation within an organisation.  My coachees describe the impact of coaching in terms of it leading to higher standards in their customer service and greater process efficiency often arising from their greater self-awareness, clarity of thinking and confidence to innovate.

I am passionate about coaching and see myself as an enabler in the ‘development from within’ of my coachees, in both their personal or professional life .  My extensive experience in the public and private sector is enriched by a my coaching experience and qualifications: notably an internationally recognised coaching certification with the International Coaching Federation and a L7 Certificate in Executive Coaching and Mentoring from the Institute of Leadership and Management.  My own coaching style is continually evolving to meet my coachees' needs through a combination of experience and an insatiable desire for learning.  While prompted by these external stimuli my own coaching style is developing from within as well.

Coaching others towards fulfilling their goals aligns with my own core values of integrity, making a contribution, and the pleasure of learning.  With my coachees developing trust, being supportive, challenging thinking, and facilitating change are both my motivation and reward.

More about my approach to coaching and training...

Training has been a part of my being for so many years.  The development of long lasting understanding in others has been something that I enjoy and gain a great deal from myself.  Although my career has involved teaching in chemistry, my main motivation has been in developing people's thinking skills.  It is through opening eyes to different ways of thinking that understanding in what they are thinking about is achieved.   Although I did not recognise it myself my approach to education was based on a coaching model and it was a natural evolution for me to move towards coaching as a profession, adding it to my portfolio of training and facilitation experience.  Collectively I think of all of these services as helping individuals asnd groups to 'Think about your Thinking (TAYT)'.
