WORKING WITH ME
Start your journey. Arrange an orientation call with me today.
I am a passionate Outdoor Leadership Coach and Mentor, and the creator of the COPA (TM) framework. I combine 25 years in marketing communication and a 15-year coaching experience with my love of nature and outdoors. As a coach, I originally trained with the Coaching Academy and then more recently at Ashridge. I maintain a continuous development programme to stay ahead of the game, see my own coach on a monthly basis and attend supervision every quarter.
I love the outdoors and after observing an increased level of creativity when working outside, I started extensive research to find out how my clients could benefit from it.
I have developed a unique approach of coaching to take you out of your daily routine to a relaxed and inspiring environment. Once the way forward is clear, I offer support inside your business with ongoing Milestone Coaching and Mentoring.
Who are my clients
People I support are typically entrepreneurs stuck in their day-to-day routines, with strained relationships between team members, stagnant growth in the business, and a loss of sight and vision for where they want to take the company.
They are directors, owners and professionals looking to lead with greater impact and influence, often with a lack of confidence and looking for clarity on the true direction they are heading in.
* COPATM Framework (creating Clarity, exploring Opportunities, setting Priorities, planning Actions)
Poor decision making and low morale are common symptoms of underconfident leadership. My clients are eager to find out where they could be and this is where I come in to help.
An Adventurer at Heart
I lead my everyday life with a deep curiosity for people, the ability to listen and a desire to keep things simple. I have a love of nature and its positive presence in our daily lives. I am an adventurer at heart; when not guiding clients through their challenges and opportunities, I am outside leading groups up the mountains, running, climbing, cycling or fly fishing.
Can I Just Do Sessions On A One - Off Basis?
All coaching sessions are designed as part of a burst of 6 sessions making up a programme series and has been designed for optimum results. It is also possible to just book a one off ‘Big Picture Planning’session which is usually 2-3 hours in duration.
How Long Is The Programme, And What Is The Frequency Of Sessions Per Programme?
Typically, Leadership Coaching Programme’s run over a 6-monthperiod. The duration can depend on the coaching approach we choseand how quickly you wish to obtain the results you want. Based on the Leadership Coaching Programme running over a 6-month period, you will have 1 session per month with a mid-month check-in call (if required).
What Is The Format Of Each Session?
A typical session last 90 minutes and would involve: 1) an initial walk and talk to get everything out into the open, working through limitationsand themes 2) stopping for a beverage and table top work, mapping the insights and deep diving into priority areas and 3) returning to the parkto walk through final insights, priorities and actions as we return to the start point to exit the park. The initial ‘Big Picture Planning’ is slightly longer (120 minutes)
What Happens If It’s Raining?
The weather very rarely stops play, and suitable clothing for the forecast is always recommended. Heavy showers can be avoided with pockets of cover provided by the park. Should it be actually pouring down, the session will be taken inside. I like to hold such outside-in sessions at Regents Park’s “Bar & Kitchen” where we will be sheltered from the rain yet surrounded by nature. As Ranulph Finnes once said – There is no bad weather, only inappropriate clothing.
Will I Have The Time?
I understand it can feel counter intuitive to stop and make the time to step outside when you’re busy but throw on your trainers and step outside with me to experience the fresh perspectives that can be generated, even in the cloudiest of situations.
