My approach

I work in a way that is appropriate for each client’s personality and business environment.

  • My large corporate clients typically expect a very formal, and business appropriate approach.
  • My SME’s clients, usually, prefer a less formal approach but nevertheless expect me to quickly become their trusted business advisor.
  • My individual clients want a professional, trustworthy and confidential coach. Someone who will stimulate them, challenge them and hold them accountable for their actions.

That said, I bring a blend of skills enhanced by my personality. I asked my clients how they would describe my approach and here’s what they said. Proactive, flexible, ahead of the curve, a bit zany, and that I had an out of the box thinking/approach. Of course, the best way to discover what I am actually like is to arrange a complimentary session with me.

My extensive training has provided me with a toolkit of techniques to unblock and unstick my clients thinking.
