Leadership Development & Executive Coach, Consultant & Speaker

I coach leaders through their aspirations and challenges using proven coaching techniques that enable clarity, motivation, focus and results.

Coaching

Coaching is a powerful way for you, as a leader, to facilitate your professional development and progress while actively working in your role. Through leadership & executive coaching, you navigate the challenges and opportunities that leadership brings, in a way that instils self awareness and confidence.

Common topics covered in coaching are:

  • Team and employee engagement,
  • Communication & public speaking skills,
  • Dealing with imposter syndrome,
  • Tackling conflict at work,
  • Driving career progression,
  • Applying for promotion,
  • Improve personal branding,
  • Overcoming challenges with senior management,
  • Achieving results,
  • Overcoming stress and overwhelm,
  • Strategic planning,
  • Dealing with specific challenging periods e.g redundancy, change management.

Leadership

Confidence, Communication, Resilience, Accountability, and Change Management are crucial to success in your leadership role and are areas we cover in the leadership coaching programme.

Outstanding leadership doesn’t just happen. You need to make it happen.

As leaders, rather than getting results, we’re driving results. 

That means getting the best from people.

But when you’re fighting fires and immersed in the day-to-day, you can easily ignore the need to develop the specific skills required to be high performance leader.

Accountability is essential in leadership, and it starts with you:

How you show up as a leader.

How your teams perceives you.

Give yourself the tools you need to achieve the results you want.

Authentic leadership starts with a decision, an acknowledgment that you need to put the work into achieving results. 

The good news is that I can help you on this journey to success.

Are you ready to make it happen?

Confidence

Demonstrating your achievements, communicating your ambition, having that performance conversation, speaking up in an important meeting – all things that look easy on paper until you find yourself in a position where you need to do it.

Then the fear and doubts creep in:

  • What will I say? 
  • How might that come across? 
  • What if they get offended?
  • What if they reject me?

It’s a similar story when you need to do something new; take on a new project, work with a new team, learn a new process. 

The first thing to acknowledge when we talk about confidence is that confidence is not arrogance. 

Being confident does not mean that you think you’re better than others or know more than others. Confidence is about self-belief and knowing that you can do what it takes to succeed.

Communication

Communication is one of those skills that we see everywhere – job specs, staff surveys, marketing strategies!

When we communicate effectively, we positively impact the people & environment around us and get stuff done.

Understanding how best to communicate with certain personalities and get the best from those around us is essential.

Whether speaking one to one or in a group setting, your communication needs to be fuelled by confidence. It’s not just what we say but also how we say it that contributes to your message. The impact of your message will dictate the extent to which you can influence what happens around you. As leaders, this is what we need to do – impact and influence.

Resilience

Our “bounce-back ability” level becomes crucial in leadership as we find ourselves continually dealing with challenges that arise day-to-day. A commitment to ensuring we look after our health (physical, mental and emotional) provides a solid foundation for dealing with all that work can throw at us. 

Embracing a growth mindset where we learn from our mistakes rather than drown in self-disappointment means we can confidently move forward. 

We all have a wellspring of resilience available to us, but we need to believe that it exists in order to access it. 

We also need to demonstrate self-compassion and ensure we aren’t our own worst critic. 

We all have an inner mentor who can put us on the right track – they are wise, compassionate, kind, and know that you deserve more than a nasty voice telling you that you’re not good enough. Like charity, kindness begins at home, and once you employ self-compassion and practical thought processes that’ll drive you forward rather than drag you back, your resilience will blossom.

If you have a chance to work or even to get to know Sharon, I encourage you to do it, as her passion is contagious and you can learn so much from her.
