I’m on a mission....to change the dynamic in leadership by throwing open the windows to bring greater diversity of ideas, creativity, & a new style of leadership.

With more inclusive leadership, & in particular, by putting relationships at the centre, organisations can equip themselves for the changing face of their workforce, & their customers.

Ultimately, I’m passionate about shifting the quality of leadership from an Industrial Age 'command & rule' model that has outstayed its welcome, to an agile, fast-paced, relationships-first leadership which is more important than ever in an AI world.

 

I work with executives & their teams, ideally in the first 90 days of their first executive or senior executive role, to set the tone for their leadership. I create bespoke ‘Womanly Art of Leadership®’ packages according to organisational & personal needs that result in sustainable behavioural change, improved performance & greater well-being for the executive & their teams. Working with executives & their teams to be more effective has the ripple effect of influencing the dynamic of the organisation at large for greater productivity. My leadership coaching philosophy is grounded in neuroscience, & human-centred leadership principles, & positive psychology.


Partnering with internal stakeholders e.g. the business, HR, Inclusion & Diversity, I work with them to identify organisational needs to elevate performance, embed a coaching culture, bring out creativity, & create solutions-focused teams. I design & facilitate workshops that support leaders in delivering on strategic initiatives.

Examples of work include:

  • Design & facilitation of strategic planning workshops to break out of a rut with new ideas and fresh ways of engaging to keep the organisation market-leading.

  • Team coaching sessions to create cohesive, inclusive teams with a common purpose, honest communication, brain training for flexibility, so they can thrive on change with resilience.

  • Leading leaders to address gender balance and unconscious bias, with 1:1 coaching.

  • Personal leadership workshops specifically targeting female talent pipeline to boost confidence & job effectiveness.

    I incorporate memory re-consolidation into my workshops, a system founded in neuroscience. The system addresses stress & emotional fatigue in teams, making way for clearer decision-making & greater productivity.

 

I seem to have found this confidence in myself that I haven’t had for some time, I’m enjoying the interaction with people & seeking out people rather than staying in my normal group. I am focused, interested & on top of my game. [It] allows me to be more “me”. I think that is showing through in my overall persona & I am being rewarded in the way people are treating me in return.
