What I Can Help You With





My Approach to Coaching

I’ve often been asked about my approach to coaching and how I do what I do. As I think about that now I realise it’s not that simple as my approach depends on who I am talking to. You see I’m highly adaptable and so each an every client gets their own version of me depending on their need. 
Over the years I have collected a mix of tools and techniques which on their own can’t do justice to the coaching session, but when mixed with my knowledge and experience while at the same time connecting with you, empathically as a human being, that is where the transformations happen.
I am open, resourceful and generate a positive inclusive environment where you are fully respected for the person you are and the challenges you bring. I listen carefully to the words you say and watch to see the changes, challenging your thinking and offering alternatives. Together we get to the root cause of your challenge and build the roadmap for your success.
I am just the tour guide…join me on the tour.

Clear Your Head to Get Ahead

Developing Resilience in the Workplace
Target Audience

This workshop is aimed at anyone who has to cope in a high-pressure environment or who wants to lead themselves and others through change and uncertainty.

What is Resilience?

Resilience is the ability to cope when times get tough and to recover from change and adversity. Each of us is born with a renewable capability for resilience – the built-in capacity to heal, regenerate and grow – how well we utilise this depends on many things; the number and types of demands on us, our attitudes and beliefs about the world and the skills we have learnt and mastered for dealing with our environment.

What is the workshop like?

Our one-day ‘Building a Resilient Workforce’ workshop is unlike any management or leadership course you have been on before. The course is both participative and reflective and uses innovative and creative techniques to enable participants to explore the topic of Stress and Resilience in both safe and challenging ways. The techniques learnt on the course can be immediately applied professionally and personally.

How does the training work?

The training takes place over one day. Each participant has the opportunity to explore their current issues and challenges through a pre-workshop questionnaire and workshop sessions, and to develop new techniques to overcome these. Attendees learn a huge amount from each other as well as from the trainer. Participants may be asked to complete the DASS 21 questionnaire and the personality type questionnaire before attending the workshop; they will be up for discussion and explanation as the workshop progresses. During the workshop participants will develop their stress management action plan, complete a thinking skills audit and a locus of control questionnaire.

Some areas will be explored through use of video supplied by HSE.Gov.UK

Follow-up coaching sessions are offered to encourage delegates to continue with the new techniques they have learnt on the course
