ORGANIZATIONAL/LEADERSHIP COACHING

Professional and Personal Success

I came to coaching with the realisation that a great deal of my work as a psychologist with elite performers fell more into the realm of unlocking optimal potential than it did with psychotherapy.  Success on the world stage of sport goes well beyond physical prowess.   Truly elite athletes learn how to train consistently, effectively, and efficiently, cultivate a strong yet flexible mindset, and develop the ability to rise to the occasion when it counts, particularly at high pressure events such as the Olympics.  It was my job to partner with athletes and coaches to increase their chances for mental success in ways that served them, from the mundanity of daily training, through the painstaking preparation for benchmark events, and on to the final bell or whistle of the competition.  I have found that there is much that transfers from performance in elite sport to thriving in high stress professional and corporate environments and that the same strategies that work for high performing athletes can work for you.

 

As a coach, I craft in partnership with you an individualised process that seeks to discover and unlock your capability to achieve short- and long-term personal or professional goals.  While there are learnings from my expertise and experience that will guide my coaching, most of the actual work and behaviour change is done by working with you so you identify and structure robust goals, think outside of the box to discover new ways of thinking and looking at the issues at hand, learn new skills, and craft an action plan for change and growth that you execute.

 

Here are some common scenarios that I can assist with:

  • You have put in the work, get the outcomes, but remain invisible to decision makers in management.

  • You are a transition point in your career but are not sure how to ascend to the next level.

  • You underperform relative to what you are capable of in high pressure situations.

  • You find it hard to get along with some people but don't know why or how to overcome it.

  • Advancement requires an assessment and you don't know how to study effectively enough to pass.

  • You have difficulties performance managing your staff.

  • You seem to always be working but have trouble identifying or selling what you actually accomplished.
