I have used coaching and self development to enable me to be living the life I have dreamt of; working for myself, with people that I want to work with, in a way that I wish to work.
Lifelong Learning – mindset that values growth, being coachable, investing in self-education
Maintaining Balance – to keep in perspective the need to have balance between work, other interests and/or relationships
Diversity/Tolerance – accepting a variety of cultures/lifestyles
To provide a comfortable, safe space for individuals to explore different ways to be their truest/most authentic self. To bring to light self-awareness; so hopes and dreams can become a reality.
I have had a long and interesting career in both the hospitality and education sectors. For the past 5 years I have been in Learning & Development Manager roles where I began to see coaching as the most useful tool when managing teams.
Skills can be taught but behaviour is inherent, therefore self-awareness, which coaching encourages, means that you have a sound understanding of who you are as a person and how you relate to the world in which you live.
When you are self-aware, you know your strengths and weaknesses and how to manage them. Isn’t it better to manage yourself than to be managed by others?
Coaching comes naturally to me, and I have been doing it for over 5 years, but to ensure that I am qualified to lead others in this field I trained with Practical Coach Training to complete an ILM Level 7 Certificate in Executive Coaching and Mentoring. This course meant that experienced coaches demonstrated and then assessed my coaching skills to a high level, so that I am qualified to work and call myself a coach.
I search to make a difference to the quality of work and life.
