Many directors, heads of departments and senior managers report facing similar challenges at work. They may be the head of a large team that incorporates a number of divergent roles, they may feel isolated and want support or need an objective view from someone outside the organisation. I provide executive coaching to help senior staff and directors tackle any difficulties that they are having, develop their careers and grow in confidence, motivation and self-awareness.
Executive coaching is structured to make sure that we achieve results but flexible enough to fit in with a client's requirements and I've found that it's possible to make big changes in a relatively short space of time.
I support managers by helping them tackle business issues, understand their own management style and its impact on their team, as well as coaching them in a particular area, such as leadership and communications skills. By helping senior staff and teams develop their skills and become more effective leaders and managers the whole organisation benefits.
