coaching focus/expertise

  • Leadership, communication and career change for professionals with special interest in healthcare and academe


coaching philosophy/style

  • I have a solutions focused stance in coaching. I often find it helpful to use EQi assessments to provide healthcare leaders with insight into their leadership strengths and styles, particularly as in that industry, leaders often come into roles with little training or opportunity to reflect on strength ¬†and style before jumping in at the deep end. I also enjoy supporting senior professionals in finding a different and meaningful journey as their career journey extends.
