Representative Client Engagements:

Include

  • Coached a Director of HR to lead through a turbulent and difficult re-structuring process in the organization. This involved managing a number of difficult and challenging behaviours as a result of the re-organizational decisions made at the time. This paved the way for new perspectives and alternative ways of working and responding to the impact of the re-structuring. New departments regained focus and the CEO regained confidence in the HR Director’s capability and performance. The director was reflexive and better managed their health and well-being during this challenging and transition period.
  • Coached a director (new in post) of a major charity who was in danger of not meeting the criteria to complete the probation period. This was a complex assignment with a need for managing a number of psychological contracts at the contracting stage, a series of coaching interventions to repair a breakdown in the relationship between the director and the chief executive, change management, uncertainty and significant coaching with the intention of improving the working relationship and productivity of the senior leadership team.
