One to one coaching for leaders and managers

Coaching is a thought-provoking, confidential and non-judgemental process that leads to action.

It is a partnership that inspires an individual to maximise their professional and personal potential. Coaching is almost an entirely forward-looking process that helps the individual get from where they are now to where they want to be – and faster than they would do so working on their own.

One-to-one coaching is ideal for

  • Senior Managers
  • Executive Directors
  • Middle Managers
  • New/Early Career Managers

Denise has more than 12 years’ experience as a Professional Certified Coach and 20 years’ experience managing people and teams in large organisations.

While working for Royal Sun Alliance and Bank of America, she gained a reputation for turnaround underperforming teams. This experience together with over 2500 hours of coaching means she really understands the challenges that leaders and managers face every day and what is needed to help others effectively lead.

Her coaching encourages new ways of thinking and creativity and invites the individual to view their situation from a different perspective.

For organisations dealing with rapid change, reduced budgets and increased workloads coaching can increase retention, improve working relationships and contribute to business reputation making it a good return on investment.

  • Support managers transition into a new role and build confidence

Behind every athlete is a great coach

The athlete is the expert and has the skill and knowledge to achieve their goals but the extra guidance from a coach supports them to perform at their best – whatever their challenges. Denise plays the same role with leadership talent.

One to one coaching provides individuals with:

  • Clarity on personal values and professional values
  • Strategies to make confident decisions
  • Creative and innovative solutions to business challenges
  • Help to identify self-sabotaging thought patterns
  • Development of emotional intelligence
  • Improved work-life balance
  • Techniques to manage pressure, prevent burnout and building resilience
  • Increased confidence in their own leadership abilities
  • A confidential sounding board to determine appropriate goals, strategies and action plans

Coaching is available as a three or six month programme:

Every programme is designed to meet the needs of the individual and the business. After an initial enquiry, Denise will speak with an individual’s manager or HR partner, taking the time to thoroughly understand the assignment. Contact is then made with the individual to arrange a short chemistry call for both Denise and the individual to decide if they can work together. There is an option for Denise to then meet with the individual and their manager to discuss and agree on objectives set by the business.

The first session is a 75 minute Coaching Discovery session. It is used for designing the working partnership, clarifying roles and responsibilities, establishing objectives set by the business and initiating the coaching process. If the individual has some additional areas of focus these will remain confidential.

Thereafter, each coaching session of either 60 or 75 minutes takes place every 4-6 weeks. The final session is for reflecting on learning and progress and celebrating successes. On completion of the coaching, where there has been a contracting meeting, Denise will meet with the individual and their manager or HR partner to review progress, the impact of the coaching and discuss what further support may be needed going forward.
