Coaching approach

I am an enthusiastic and supportive coach and I use the coachees agenda to help them become stronger performers in their business, whatever that may be. I am very clear that responsibility for change sits with the client, and my role is to facilitate that change. My friendly and flexible style enables me to build rapport quickly and encourages coachees to trust me and to share their development needs, limiting beliefs and other issues which prevent them from performing at optimal levels. I will often encourage them to identify the stakeholders in situations and to put themselves in their shoes in order to consider issues from a wider range of perspectives, in order to develop new and different approaches to problems and relationships. I use a balance of reflection, psychometric instruments and tools and techniques to address my clients' issues and to help them become more effective.
