I help managers and business owners deal with the challenges we all face in managing people.
As a former manager and director myself, I know how challenging it can be to communicate well and get results. I've seen very talented individuals become managers, only to experience frustration and despair when working with their staff. The secret to managing well is communication. To be the managers and leaders we want to be, we must develop our communication skills above all else. Connecting and engaging with people is how we get things done—and done well.
If people report to you, you need to support them so that they fulfill their role, effect positive change, and learn to deal with difficult issues.
You need to delegate, set expectations, encourage innovation, and ensure teams deliver on projects. The list can seem endless...
Over my career, I've learned that the key to success at work is clear, honest, open communication, what I call real conversations, and I love sharing these principles and practices with others and helping them transform situations and experiences. Developing the skills and approaches for better communication can be a turning point in a career, a team or a business.
HOW I WORK
I love working with people to make improvements and bring positive change even in very challenging situations. I help identify the real problems and issues, see what's causing things to go wrong or stay stuck, and I work in partnership with my clients to make change happen. My goal is for people to understand themselves and others better, and I support them to take action and communicate well. I do this through one to one coaching, team sessions, training, and leadership team coaching. Find out more here.
I want to help create wonderful workplaces where people thrive, are valued and do great work.
