Business Coaching and Leadership Development for Organisations

Providing tools and solutions to support your greatest asset, your people

Organisations that have a compelling People Strategy, who incorporate coaching, wellbeing and inclusive leadership capability are seeing a profitable ROI.

I provide Corporate Services including; tailored Business Coaching, Executive Coaching and Therapeutic Programmes, Bespoke Leadership Development, Leadership Facilitation and Strategic HR.

The business coaching and therapeutic support I offer delivers results, so organisations can develop and people can thrive. Creating a more effective and inclusive work culture, whilst aligning with your overall mission, strategy and corporate objectives.

Executive Coaching helps individuals in many areas including improving personal life challenges, developing leadership skills and to drive individual performance, in turn improving organisational growth and stability.

Typically, within my business coaching services, I coach Executives and Leaders across five levels to overcome leadership challenges – personal, leadership, interpersonal skill level, team level and organisational level, supporting organisations to create an empowered workforce and overall effectiveness.

I also provide psychometric personality tests, including The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the 3 Hogan Tools; Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI), Hogan Development Survey (HDS), and (MVPI) the Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory.

Psychometric assessments can help executives, leaders and entrepreneurs identify their strengths, discover, explore and overcome their blind spots.

I am certified in administering these tools and assessments for English speaking professionals.
