Style & Approach

At the heart of what I do is a simple idea: organisations don’t change, people do. I encourage clients to build their curiosity to generate new insights; I help them gain clarity by defining their purpose, values and story; I support them to find the courage to make change happen; I boost their confidence by building on their strengths and opening up new possibilities; and I challenge them to act with conviction to realise their full potential. I create a safe space to think in bold and fresh ways, balancing empathy and challenge to help clients imagine their ideal future. Underpinning this, I work on exposing limiting beliefs and assumptions, then co-create the clarity, confidence and conviction needed to be successful. Finally, I believe our work together should be fun - a positive experience! My approach is strongly informed by my core values of honesty, perspective, forgiveness and humour. I use a blend of coaching and consulting techniques, including narrative identity and positive psychology.
