Corporate & Executive Coaching

I feel I am much more confident now!

You are to changing them according to our specific needs or areas for development. I feel I am much more confident now! I’ve been really happy with all of our sessions and I can’t think of anything that would have made them better.

‘Very helpful and very informative. It has given me a chance to learn more and reflect on the way I deal with conversations and the ways I will approach the role of being a mentor’.

‘The session was very informative and I learnt many, many new skills. Thank you so much!! Looking forward to the next session’.

Heidi was invigorating, insightful and fun

Having recently been appointed to an Executive position, I found the sessions provided me with a confidential, dedicated space to reflect upon my performance.
Working with Heidi was invigorating, insightful and fun. She unquestionably held me to account for my actions, checked-in on my wellbeing and helped me to make the transformations that I identified. She was and is amazing!

Heidi was extremely easy to talk to and very encouraging – everything you want in a coach. She gave me practical support to adopt in my day to day practice to help overcome my concerns.

Focused and invaluable

The coaching sessions over the year have been focused and invaluable, allowing me to focus on my career development whilst giving me the opportunity to develop my vision, values, teamwork and overall effectiveness.

‘Thankyou! I’ve taken away strategies of building resilience to support our most vulnerable. Also reflected on my own resilience’ Secondary school teacher 

‘Thank you. Lots of awareness and strategies to promote resilience in our students’.

‘Really enjoyed learning about DISC and how to coach the different styles’

‘Coaches aren’t there to provide the solutions, they are there to help the coachee solve their own solutions through great questioning skills’

She was very engaging and had a really good insight into the challenges I am facing.  I felt like she listened and really understood, which was helpful and helped put me at ease.  She was very intuitive and helped me think about the challenges in different ways.  I found the session extremely useful.

Inspirational Coaching Skills

Challenging and confidence-building

Heidi’s sessions were fantastic; they were both challenging and confidence-building, giving me the tools and skills to have greater insight into myself and help to tackle the situations I found myself facing in starting a new job as a manager. She foregrounded the importance of accountability and of breaking down the daunting into achievable steps; her teaching background was invaluable in helping us to work towards solving problems, but with Heidi instrumental in helping me to come to solutions and strategies myself.

Her fundamental focus on the importance of communication, in looking forward to manage potential issues before they become issues and in ‘taking employees with me’ have been mantras which have subsequently guided my work, and her sessions have helped me in my personal life too; her calm thoughtfulness and positivity are infectious, with her helping me to see the things that I am capable of. She has also helped me with delegation skills and empowering staff.

I would thoroughly recommend Heidi as a coach: she has a depth of experience in the professional world and this gives her the reflective insight to help her clients to gain their own. My own journey in leadership has been immeasurably accelerated by our sessions, and I know I will be using the tools she has helped me to gain for the rest of my professional life.

Fun, but purposeful and DIFFERENT

You have worked miracles!  Staff have been very tired this week and you managed to engage them all in the session!

The impact of the session was evident in the active discussions in groups about how we can implement the theory in practice.  In my group, staff really got into it!

The feedback showed that staff had a lot of action points that they can take back to their departments and into their classrooms.

I loved your booklets – they were fun, but purposeful and DIFFERENT.

As I know from my experience of leading and managing people, the complexity of organisations and the people within is not to be underestimated. A company’s culture reflecting their values, beliefs, staff behaviours and expectations can have a significant empowering or disempowering impact on not only a company’s performance but increasingly important, the wellbeing of staff. Unhappy, ill-equipped and insufficiently professionally staff are unlikely to be contributing to a well-rounded flourishing business!

More on the coaching experience

Coaching employees to improve performance enhances individual skills and helps them better understand their role in the organisation. When employees know what to do and why they’re doing it, will perform better and be happier.

 

Corporate and Executive Coaching can be a 1-1, team or organisational focused goal reflecting aspects of leadership and/or management. Broadly, the focus is related to people or task. As both are inextricably linked, successful leaders and managers need to be skilled at enabling both dimensions to flourish.

 

Strategic and operational understanding is key so that leaders, managers and their staff teams have clarity on their roles and responsibilities. Overarching, is the ability for leaders and managers to be authentic, empathic and humble.

 

Corporate and Executive Coaching has many facets. These are some of the more common areas of Coaching for my clients:

  • Strategic Leadership Development
  • Team Development
  • Career Development
  • Culture Shifts
  • Identification and Implementation of strategic goals
  • Futures Thinking and Futures Planning
  • Setting the Vision
  • Developing Leaders
  • Effective Workload Management
  • Effective Stress Management
  • Managing Difficult People
  • Happiness in the Workplace
