As a previously highly successful project manager in the construction industry, my client’s change of industry sector to a Not For Profit had not gone well. When setting up the coaching program, his manager described how he was perceived as abrupt and lacking in interest in his colleagues and was being deliberately excluded from discussions and decisions where his expertise and previous experience would have been useful. During the coaching program he explored how he kept himself as a person out of his work as a professional and how that meant he was unable to relate to and therefore influence and effectively work with his colleagues. By the end of the coaching program he had awareness and courage to change. His working performance metrics and working relationships were both vastly improved.
Testimonial from a recent client
My experience of accessing Ann for executive coaching has been a huge learning journey and an incredible adventure which I know will hold me in good stead for my professional future.
I am employed in a team leader role as a mental health nurse managing the mental health services for a global telehealth company. It has been my goal to continue to develop professionally and be able to progress to a more senior management role in the business.
Since working with Ann, I have developed insight into the areas which I am professionally strong and the areas which I can learn and further develop, to achieve my professional goals. She has guided and educated me on different types of management styles, which is best suited to me, and how to communicate with influence at an executive level, hence ensuring that I am heard.
