Waverley

“Helping people to flourish by expressing their natural talents is what I find most fulfilling.  Through coaching I develop  confidence and self-belief for my clients and support them as they work with their teams and their peers, and challenge and support their bosses.  Coaching particularly enhances  personal and organisational impact when both the individual and their bosses are ready to commit to making changes, and want to see those through, so increasingly I emphasise paying attention to establishing the right environment for coaching to be effective.”

“Early on in the coaching days, she did a lot of listening and me doing a lot of talking and I didn’t know what I was getting out of it apart from me talking a lot about myself. And then she would just say one thing and I would come away going ‘God, she’s good. How does she do that?’ .”
