Lou.300x300My belief is that in developing others we need to make sure that we are prepared to go the extra mile in ensuring our own credentials and sense of self are bang up to date! Otherwise, what gives us the right to coach, mentor and inspire change in others?

As a mother, wife, coach and business director, I promote honesty, authenticity and clarity in the way I operate. I do this because everyone deserves to meet the real me, be told the truth and know exactly where they stand. Maybe this is my old fashioned up bringing shining through, but it seems to have worked for me in my life and my work so far. My vision is that those organisations, teams and individuals who choose to work with us, feel deeply inspired by the simple things that we do well.

I have been working in the field of performance, behaviour, and leadership development for many years and my style is kind, resourcesful and dedicated. When meeting people I am often energised by the challenge of helping them to step forward, and find a new direction or alternative solution. I believe that a learning and coaching opportunity is a privellege and a gift, and that in todays economic climate where resources are often scarce, it is important that we grab the opportunity for some personal development whenever the moment presents itself.

Having a deep toolbox of skills and techniques is important to me and this is something I will always be building on, yet nothing beats real on the job experience, where you are working confidently and being fully present which are essential to success in the performance coaching world. This role gives me continual and true exposure to all aspects of peoples lives, which is a pretty damn amazing thing.
