Support individuals through organisational change
I have spent over 20 years in a business environment managing and mentoring teams, as well as advising senior leaders, so I have a keen awareness of the requirements for high performing teams and individuals in a corporate setting. (See more on my background...)
I am also a licenced YB12 coach and can provide a Total Focus group workshop across two half days, as well as an ongoing 12-month structured modular coaching programme for your individual staff members. Contact me for a FREE keynote talk about how coaching can support your business.
How coaching works
No matter what you are looking to change or achieve, the keys to success are the same:
Get clear – as specifically as possible, decide what you want. The clearer you are on what you want to have in your life, the more likely you are to achieve it.
Get perspective – most people don’t tell anyone what they want or what they are struggling with and, because of that, they don’t get an outside perspective.
Get support – very few people (if any) achieve anything great alone. Successful sports stars have teams and coaches to support them.
In your coaching programme with me, you will:
Get a clear vision on what you want to achieve.
Set goals to help your reach your target.
Uncover hidden challenges that may be sabotaging your ability to make changes that last or that are slowing down your progress.
Leave the sessions feeling renewed, re-energised and inspired to finally achieve the change you seek.
Business coaching client testimonial
"I was looking for a coach who could provide individual coaching sessions for my small team and facilitate team planning days. It was important to me that I could find someone who had the same values as us and who could stretch, challenge and inspire us to achieve our goals. Jo has proved to be that person! She has been a delight to work with. Always thoroughly prepared, never flinching from the challenging questions and meticulous in her follow-up. Thank you, Jo!" - Viv Grant, Owner/Director of Integrity Coaching, (London, UK).
