About Coaching

As a corporate coach, I view my role as a change agent supporting individuals and their teams to create sustained behavioural change in a way that's aligned to organisational strategy.

Coaching models I use frequently include appreciative inquiry, reflective coaching and goal setting theory. Organisational diagnostic frameworks I find particularly helpful are the McKinsey 7 S model and Kotter’s 8-step change model.

Always, there is a focus on coaching adding value to the organisation and the coaching client.

Coaching at different career stages

Coaching has significant impact at different career stages.

As an individual contributor coaching is powerful for:

  • Skill development – Building up core skills e.g. creating a strong network, developing client relationships, handing difficult conversations
  • Performance Management – Improving effectiveness in current role (as part of career progression plan)
  • Career Transition – Ensuring successful and sustainable transition and integration into new role and clarifying a road map for future career progression

As a people manager and leader coaching supports:

  • Individual transformation - Changing mindset for success e.g. client and practice development, Motivating and engaging team members
  • Organisational transformation - Impacting and influencing organizational culture through e.g. intergrating a high-performance culture, creating effective and strong leadership
