It’s hard to think of a more critical time in history when global leaders, need to be impactful. Huge challenges confront them: technological change, empowering others, greater global complexity, economic uncertainties, increased public scrutiny and much more. And to be effective, leaders need to take time to think.
Change always begins with an emotion. Maybe the change has been imposed on you, you are dissatisfied with the current situation at work, or have ambition for the future.
That emotion causes you to reflect and ask questions such as:
Listen without judgement for the deeper, underlying issues

My approach is based on positive psychology and leveraging strengths. With a style that is described by clients as intuitive, empathetic, engaging, results-focused, positive, challenging, enjoyable and fun. I build rapport quickly with clients and help them to gain focus and clarity about what’s really holding them back. Whether it’s beliefs, behaviours or mindset, I enable clients to feel comfortable to explore these issues and create a sustainable strategy for change.
Its powerful and impactful.
I facilitate your thinking by role modelling an enquiry-led approach. You will see me being curious, asking questions, listening deeply to what’s being said, and not said, paying close attention to body language, noticing words used, picking up on the intonation in tone or the energy behind particular words, and reflecting on the underlying beliefs that may be driving your behaviour.
Maintaining confidentiality and demonstrating integrity are implicit in how I work. I also bring energy, enthusiasm and an innate belief in your potential and ability to solve your own issues. Sometimes, leaders want to hear about how others have tackled similar challenges, so occasionally I may share insights or learning to provide that broader perspective.
This in turn helps you to find the courage, sometimes in the face of fear or anxiety, to explore new ways forward, and identify practical steps to take, ultimately building confidence, and a stronger belief in what’s possible.
