Hello, my name is Barbara and it my pleasure to welcome you to my Blog. I hope that you will find something of interest here.

My career has been long and varied. I have worked in many different types of organisations, in various sectors, but they have all had one thing in common… Change. Growth, transformation, reorganisation, upscaling, downsizing, restructuring, merger, closure…I have experienced all of these things; and learned much along the way.

I started in Law firms, and they continue to play a major part in my work, which these days includes Coaching, Training, Mentoring, Facilitation and Workplace Mediation.  I specialise in Coaching Senior Leaders, as organisations go through challenging change, including Coaching for Resilience.

Key Coaching Areas:

  • Change management, including personal transitions
  • Leadership of self and others
  • Orientation of senior recruits
  • Business development and building of client relationships
  • Improving personal effectiveness
  • Managing performance and motivation
  • Dealing with conflict and difficult relationships
  • Coping with stress and building resilience
  • Increasing individual motivation and commitment to action
  • Understanding self and others (often based on the MBTI)
