Executive & Business Coaching

If you are an executive, manager, business owner or director, there will be times when you need to talk to an expert about an issue or decision but no-one in your network seems appropriate. You want an objective view, expertise and confidentiality. That’s where I come in.

The right coaching conversations can create insights and skill development that lead to significant improvement in a person’s career and business. As we explore your working life, we discover and remove the factors that are sabotaging your success, and introduce skills that will boost your achievement and satisfaction. My coaching process helps you become more capable, more decisive, more courageous and passionate and better at spotting and creating opportunities.

Why see a Coaching Psychologist?

Coaching Psychology can help solve your current workplace and personal dilemmas and help you reach your longer term business, career and life goals. The coaching industry is unregulated, and as such corporate coaches may have a variety of academic qualifications and experience. Around five percent of coaches are psychologists. The advantages of psychologist as coach are:
1. Tertiary level training in theoretically-grounded approaches and comprehensive training in understanding human behaviour
2. Training in issues that require significant cognitive or emotional development
3. A solid grounding in recognising and referring clinical issues
4. We practice according to a strict ethical code and are required to regularly attend professional development sessions to update our knowledge.

Coaching Psychology is an applied positive psychology, which draws on established psychological approaches. It is the most effective and in-depth way an individual can learn new skills, knowledge and awareness, and change perspective through expert guidance and feedback.

Executive Coaching

Are you feeling overwhelmed by the demands of your job?
Do you have some bad habits at work that need changing?
Are you new to leadership and need some guidance?
Or cant decide on an important career move?
Do you feel like an imposter in your role?
Do you need help brainstorming a decision?
Or are you successful but just not satisfied?
Or maybe you are just not motivated and dont know how to get out of the rut?

There are a lot of people who are highly successful yet unhappy and unsatisfied. These are the perfectionists, the obsessive-compulsives, those who don’t feel good enough, those who sabotage their own happiness. These habits are learnt, and change and improvement is possible.

My executive coaching process targets 5 main areas of development: 1. Clarifying your direction 2. Changing behavioural habits 3. Improving your mindset. 4. Improving your emotional skills, and 5. Improving interpersonal skills. The coaching service is tailored to your needs, and may include diagnostic testing (or use of your own test reports), consults on site or via Skype, Weekly action-oriented exercises, and regular email and phone support.

Your coaching contract may include speech preparation, strategic planning, career advice,  problem solving staff conflict, time management, stakeholder management.

Business Coaching

If you are a business owner, or in a partnership or team of directors, your daily habits (the way you do things) significantly affects your business. Individual habits can negatively affect the team, and the way the team functions together can sabotage success. There are better ways of running a business and leading a team, and the time to change is now, before more damage is done. My system of coaching provides a unique way of improving your (and your team’s) psychology. Here is what I can do for you;

  • I can help you and your team resolve conflict and remove the blocks to success and happiness.
  • I help you manage the stress of fast growth and the need to adapt to change.
  • I help new teams develop good habits, helping old teams to get unstuck out of bad habits
  • Guide your decision making and strategy regarding staff,  allocation of resources, job design, remuneration, work distribution and customer service
  • Partner with you to create your preferred workplace culture

My Method

  • Expertise in conflict mediation not only resolves conflict but improves teamwork and productivity
  • Improving the psychological development of individuals improves performance. Developing people produces the best business results and satisfaction with work.
  • People and businesses function through habit. Unhealthy habits create negative outcomes, healthy ones create positive outcomes. The challenge is to know the difference between the two. I help you identify these and guide to you improvement.
  • Most business issues have underlying psychological causes that, if not treated, just perpetuate the problems. I can identify and treat rivalries, insecurities, irrational beliefs, and so on.
  • Its not failure when you learn from adversity and can use the experience to create something better. People usually need help processing bad experiences in order to learn from them and move on successfully.
  • People inside a business sometimes cannot see clearly the problems I can see from the outside. Defining the actual problem is half way to the solution.
  • I can hold people to account in a way that you could not from within, by giving developmentally useful feedback and a clear way to improve individual and team capability.
