My Vision and Values
I started my coaching business in March 2012. The main reasons I moved from the corporate world to running my own coaching business were that I wanted to be in control of my own destiny and ensure that I didn’t miss any more of my kid’s childhood. Commuting 4 hours a day to/from London was taking it’s toll.
I found an increasing amount of pressure to choose between being a mum and having a career; I believe you can have both and am now hopefully a role model for other mother’s to show that it is possible. I am passionate about enabling people and businesses to be the best they can be and for me Business Coaching helps me to do that.
I invested in the ActionCOACH franchise as I genuinely believe it is the best coaching organisation in the world. The coaching framework has been proven with 100’s of thousands of companies; some prospective clients are put off by the structure, for me the needs of the company are always paramount; it is a framework not a checklist.
My vision is to enable all business owners to have the success they deserve; supported by engaged high performing teams with everyone enjoying the journey.
My values are:
Positivity Integrity Authenticity Commitment Pro-activity
By living the values, building a relationship with my clients, meeting regularly ; coaching the person not just the task my clients get great results
