Introduction

Through executive, leadership and team coaching, workshops and consulting, I partner with senior business leaders, managers and high potential emerging leaders, professionals and teams with the aim to foster and facilitate business, professional and personal growth, positive change and progress, and transformed performance.

As co-adventurer and explorer, I accompany clients on their development journey, inspiring and empowering them to achieve their aspirations and desired outcomes. I help them navigate their contexts and dilemmas, to see their systems from different perspectives and discover opportunities, to deal well with complexity and uncertainty, to adapt and re-create themselves, and to innovate and try out new ways of thinking and working.

Bringing a global and systemic outlook to my work, together with psychological depth and insight and over 30 years’ direct international experience working in my field, I enable clients to expand their horizons and develop greater awareness, as well as appreciate and leverage resources and difference, while building courage, cultural agility and collaborative leadership capacity.

My mission

I support the evolution and success of businesses and organisations, their teams and people by developing visionary and self-aware leaders who deliver desired results through strong relationships and engagement, vitality and team spirit. I help them tap into their best human capacities such as their curiosity, intuition, wisdom, imagination and resilience. With a practical focus, I aim to enable leaders to translate new learning into purposeful action and sustainable change, creating value for various stakeholders by working systemically.

How I work

I work in thinking partnership with my clients, co-creating programmes and workshops around real challenges and broader strategic objectives, co-developing the solutions and skills they need. My Structure & Flow approach is adaptive and personalised, combining contracting, processes, frameworks and parameters with flexibility, spontaneity, creativity, joy and the emergent. It is also relational and often deeply personal. I work across disciplines and draw on various models and techniques, including feedback and experimentation. High professional standards and good ethical practice are important to me.

What I do

By providing safe and confidential spaces for dialogue and reflection, I enable clients to address their issues from new angles, helping them see patterns and blind spots, and shift the status quo. I help them find clarity on who they are, what matters to them, and what they want for their future, including their personal and collective purpose and contribution. In a joint inquiry, I support clients to think about their careers, to better understand conflict and ethical challenges, and to make informed decisions. Driving and managing change and identifying priorities, as much as (re-)gaining presence, balance and fulfilment, are also frequent topics I help with, among others.

Who I am

A British-German national based in Munich, I originally come from the north of England, though having lived and worked for many years in Germany and Spain, and also in China and former Czechoslovakia, I’m now rather a cultural hybrid. In Barcelona, I co-founded and ran a coaching and training company for 15 years. My previous careers were in publishing and teaching. Committed to my own personal and professional development, I appreciate supportive relationships, encouragement and feedback, as well as space and time for sense-making, calm and renewal. I’m especially interested in ethics, and also individual and collective trauma and its impact on behaviour and organisations.

My services

My services primarily focus on building leadership capacity and ability in individuals, teams and groups with the aim to enable and empower them to make a bigger contribution to their organizations, communities and society at large. My programmes and workshops can be delivered in person, online or as a combination of both, depending on location. For some services, I team up with an associate in my international network.

Executive & Leadership Coaching

With so much disruption, change, complexity and pressure, coaching provides executives, leaders and managers with the thinking space for sense-making, renewal and robust dialogue within a trustful, safe and supportive relationship. Scientific research has proven that coaching can be a powerful and transformative methodology to promote and accelerate leadership capacity, personal and collective growth and enhanced performance.

Systemic Team & Group Coaching

A certified and experienced team and group coach and facilitator, I help build collaborative leadership capability through team and group coaching programmes, enabling both teams and individuals to achieve their goals and deliver results. On their development journeys, I partner with international, senior management, project and start-up teams, as well as small groups of professionals from across an organization. Read more

Development Workshops & Facilitation

To support the development of key leadership capacities and mindsets, I deliver and facilitate stimulating and energizing workshops and masterclasses on targeted areas for small groups of leaders, emerging leaders and teams in organizations. Working in collaboration with senior leaders and HR, I co-design practical thinking spaces based on real needs and challenges and aligned with broader strategy. Read more

Consulting Partnership to Create Coaching Cultures

I provide thinking partnership to businesses and organizations – their senior executives, HR and organizational development professionals and change management specialists – where there is a strong drive and commitment to create a thriving culture of coaching, learning and development. In line with wider change plans, I help integrate developmental practices and a strategic role for coaching at all levels of the organization. Read more
