Looking for generic coaching to make you work harder, produce more, and mimic standard leadership techniques? Then this is probably not the approach for you.
The coaching framework I use takes into account every aspect of your life, integrating your career, your home, your mind and your body to create deep and lasting change. Our sessions will incorporate creativity, nature, mindfulness and somatic work as well as the experience I gained in senior international roles in law and banking.
If you’re in a high‐powered role that’s stretched and challenged you, perhaps at the expense of your sense of playfulness and creativity, I’ll support you to reconnect to those aspects. It’s this integration that will ultimately translate to long‐term excellence. (No more feeling as though you’re adopting a persona, or putting on a mask, when you go into the office.)
My clients tell me they’re finally seen as who they really are. You’ll be given a voice, and truly heard, in a way that is warm, understanding, but also challenging.
It’s a supportive and powerful process that leads to lasting results.
We’ll explore tools to enable you to deal with changes big and small – from promotion to a leadership role; starting (or growing) a family; leaving work or changing career; to challenges around time management; stress and anxiety; mastering difficult conversations and relationship‐building.
This kind of coaching isn’t just a cerebral exercise. After all, we’ve all had blinding moments of revelation ‐ if only I could do this, say this, be more like this. But revelations quickly disappear.
If you’ve learned an instrument or trained in a sport you’ll know that only when the skill reaches “muscle memory” will it stay with us.
The same is true of your thought patterns and behaviours. We’ll go beyond insight and awareness, to embed the procedural memory you need for lasting development.
“Susan helped me to understand what was holding me back, and worked with me to
introduce tools to help me to develop, both inside and outside work. I highly recommend
working with her.”
