Developing competencies and confidence - together
With 19+ years' experience in leadership and tenure as an Operations Director, I'm afforded a solid understanding of the corporate context that Executives and Senior Leaders operate within.
My ILM 7 accreditation and EMCC membership assure my coaching competencies and commitment to the Global Code of Ethics. I use industry-standard models such as iGROW, with my methodologies firmly based in Humanistic psychology. I firmly believe that personal growth and fulfilment are fundamental human motives, and it is only our conditioned beliefs that limit our potential. I work with the client as a whole person, which is not limited to their development needs and behaviours solely in the work context.
I'm not a formulaic or traditional career coach. This is a specific choice; I wish to support my clients to achieve permanent positive change to support their long-term goal attainment.
I have had a varied career in the Defence and Aviation sector. I started my career as an aircraft engineer, moving into logistics before finding my home in project and programme management. I've led large systems development programmes, business consolidations and implemented enterprise systems before finally working as part of a senior leadership team as an Operations Director. I embarked on my own development journey around the age of 28 when given 360-degree feedback as a driven project manager; 'that sometimes my expectations and standards could be too high and at times I focused on the outcome more than the people'. From this paradigm shift, I developed a passion for human psychology and performance and the potential benefits it offers both individuals and organisations.
I have a strong sense of 'business doesn't have to be this way'. Cultures can be empowering and not disabling; we can all find fulfilment in our lives and work if we are supported to develop personally and professionally.
