Curriculum Vitae


“I never cease to be amazed at the power of the coaching process to draw out the skills or talent that was previously hidden within an individual, and which invariably finds a way to solve a problem previously thought unsolvable.”

– John Russell

“Everything in coaching hinges on listening because what we are listening for affects where we are speaking from and unfolds how we are being with and for each other.”

– Marilyn Atkinson and Rae Chois

“I absolutely believe that people, unless coached, never reach their maximum capabilities.”

– Bob Nardelli

Those who do well at work are usually the confident, the articulate, the loud ones.

The quiet ones, the introverts are often overlooked.

It can be hard to be heard and to progress.
We can ask the leaders in the business to accommodate the introverts, but in the hurly burly of decision and action, it becomes a lesser consideration.

The introvert needs to make their own mark. 

Create their own profile.
Work on their presence and their contribution.
I can work with you to support your efforts. To help you make an impact.

After 25 years in corporate life as well as in the education sector, I’m familiar with just about every scenario.

I don’t seek to change your personality, but rather work on strategies that help you be heard.
Or perhaps you’re trying to win that role. I can help with that too.
You know that most of the workers in your workplace are backroom people.
They prefer not be upfront, or even visible. That’s why they take a backroom role.
They’re the chefs, not the maitre de’s.
But being not visible doesn’t mean you’re not to be listened to.
Being quiet doesn’t mean you have little to offer.
You work hard, and you have ideas, suggestions, improvements.
You need to be found and given the space to make a contribution.
And your contributions need to be given weight.
We’ll work together for you to be at the head table and asked to make a contribution.

Get in touch if you feel I can help.
