What kind of coach are you? A chance to take stock.

At various points in our coaching practice - whether we are free lance, working in a business, or exploring how we use coaching in daily life - we start to ask the question “What do I actually do when I coach?” It’s a question I regularly explore with other coaches.

Contact me if you would like an hour to explore:

  • The kind of coach you are
  • What happens when you coach people and what else would you like to happen?
  • Who you work with, and who you are drawn to
  • What kind of coach are you becoming?

Team development. 


I’ve working in this area for about 25 years and use a range of tools, models and experience to support coachees.  If you’re coaching managers around specific issues I’d be pleased to share any knowledge that might add to your coaching practice for example around difficult conversations/feedback, managing conflict, dysfunctional teams, delegation, building trust, managing workplace stress, resilience.

In terms of team development I’ve got experience of using Lencioni, Tuckman and Belbin team development models in practice.  I’m accredited to deliver PRINT and DiSC profiling tools and I’m very happy to share my knowledge of them (although there is a cost for completing a profile if you want to).  I’ve also got experience in employee engagement processes, application and action planning.

Support around working with:

1) clients' mental health - knowing our limits as coaches and how we can work safely with clients regarding their mental health

2) embodiment and body intelligence - getting clients out of their heads, helping them to raise awareness of the huge amount of information they hold in their body; using their body to help them reach their goals; and even working with your body awareness to develop as a coach.
