Executive Coach working with entrepreneurs & emerging leaders / Formerly at Deloitte UK & HM Treasury
You are already a high performing individual. My job is to help you leverage your existing skills and build new ones as you navigate your transitional journey. There is no single approach to leadership and I do not come with out-of-the-box leadership solutions. I will work with you to define and develop your own leadership style.
I help clients prepare for Board meetings and manage relationships with their Board members. I also undertake facilitated 360 feedback between yourself and your management team / Board members, to provide you with an evidence-based framework against which to develop.
Building a business is incredibly tough. The odds are greatly stacked against you and the dynamics are complicated. It can indeed be lonely at the top. Personal experience has given me firsthand appreciation of the challenges faced on the journey. Consequently, my practical approach is never to the detriment of empathy and compassion. I recognise that the emotional journey is tough. I'm here to help you through it and build resilience along the way. Consider me an impartial companion on your journey.
High growth businesses are frenetic. Whilst there may be many things that you could do, there will only be a handful of things that you can actually do with the limited resources that you have to hand. I will help you to appropriately frame your challenges and focus on meaningful actions to help you overcome then. I have a personal interest in cognitive biases and decision making under conditions of uncertainty, which I leverage to help you arrive at well informed decisions. You will leave a session with a clear idea about what you need to do next, the confidence to communicate your ideas to your team (and investors), and reassurance that you can execute them in a risk-managed manner.
