WHAT WILL YOU GET OUT OF THE PROGRAMME?
Are you feeling anxious about a restructure? Are you getting overlooked for that promotion? Are you feeling stressed? Too busy to think through things properly? Are you feeling like an imposter? Are you worried that you aren’t leading your team effectively? Are you wondering if you are even in the right job or on the right career path?
We coach individuals to work through all of the above. Our tailored one-to-one programme will help you at any stage of your career. We will guide you to successfully navigate through new challenges. You will learn new tools and strategies to build your resilience, to ensure stress doesn’t cloud your decision-making, to create a new mindset which builds your confidence and raises your profile and influence.
Clients who have worked with us experience increased job and life satisfaction, better working relationships with colleagues and greater self-belief.
We will spend time getting to know you, your leadership style and your business priorities.
The coaching partnership usually consists of 4-8 sessions, each lasting 60 minutes, taking place every 3-6 weeks, at a time that suits you and your business demands. Sessions can be done face-to-face or virtually.
We always start with a free 30 minute discovery call , with absolutely no obligation to book further sessions. What is there to loose?

'Kate is a wonderful coach, I am so glad we went on this journey together. She is a great listener and adapted herself to everything I brought to the sessions'. (Manon)
'In the first session we explored what I wanted my journey with her to look like and how I wanted to feel at the end. In the consecutive sessions we discussed different aspects of my work and life and she helped me shine a different light on it. I could see from session to session how I was changing and developing'. (Christiane)
Right now we are all experiencing huge amounts of change, both personally and organisationally. The pandemic has made every organisation scrutinise its purpose, its products and its viability. Businesses are having to change the way they work and this requires strong leadership, high levels of resilience and an abundance of empathy.
We will create a brave and honest space for every workshop so you can share your views with each other on what you do well and what you want to do more of so you can bring your true leadership style to the team. All our workshops finish with intention setting so that the learning gained in the workshop is realised outside in the business.
We offer a series of change workshops which will equip you and your teams to implement your change plans with greater confidence so you have the best chance of success. We'll also help your staff to feel empowered to deliver tough messages. We offer four 90 minute workshops, delivered virtually over zoom.
'This is the best workshop I've attended in years! The variety of exercises both individually lead or in the break out groups throughout the session kept the pace and focus strong'.
It was really useful/positive to gather all in one (virtual) place and take a bit of time to acknowledge what we're all going through and what's coming up'.
'An open and supportive environment for sharing anxieties, and possible techniques for combating fears on a personal and professional level. All felt very safe and supported'.
'I loved getting to explore my values. It was something I'd never done fully before and it felt like a safe space in which to do so guided by Kate'.
