Through global executive, leadership and team coaching, workshops and consulting, my aim is to enable personal and professional development, effective international collaboration, and transformed performance. I partner with senior leaders, managers and emerging leaders, professionals and cross-cultural teams, empowering them to get better results through greater awareness, stronger relationships and courageous communication.

With a spirit of co-inquiry and exploration, I accompany clients on their development journey, challenging and supporting them to achieve their aspirations and desired outcomes. By providing a safe, open and confidential space for dialogue, reflection and sense-making, I help my clients see new perspectives, better handle complexity and uncertainty, adapt and innovate, and try out new ways of thinking, relating and working.

I bring a broad and systemic outlook to my work, together with psychological insight and over 30 years’ direct international experience working in my field. From this, I enable clients to expand their horizons and gain a deeper and broader understanding of their issues and context. I encourage and inspire them to become more purposeful, resourceful, agile and innovative, while delivering the practical solutions they need.

My mission

I support the evolution and success of businesses and organisations, their teams and people by developing visionary, capable 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 and systemic approach, I enable leaders to translate new learning into purposeful action and sustainable change, generating value for multiple stakeholders.

How I work

I work in thinking partnership with my clients, co-creating programmes and workshops around real challenges and broader strategic objectives. My Structure & Flow approach is adaptive and personalized, combining contracting, processes, frameworks and parameters with flexibility, spontaneity, creativity, playfulness and the emergent. It is also relational, often deeply personal, and trauma-informed. 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, reflection and action-planning, 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 want to become, what matters to them, and what they want for their future, including their personal and collective purpose. In a joint inquiry, I might support clients to understand interpersonal dynamics and conflict, to identify priorities, to make informed decisions or to drive change. While some reflect on their leadership role and style, others work on managing their emotions or leveraging cross-cultural differences.

Who I am

A UK-German citizen based in Munich, I originally come from the north of England. Now, I’m rather a cultural hybrid with an insider-outsider viewpoint, having lived and worked for many years in Germany and Spain, and also in China and former Czechoslovakia. In Barcelona, I co-founded and ran a coaching and training company for 15 years. My previous careers were in publishing and teaching. I am committed to my own personal and professional development and regular supervision. Openness to new people, approaches and perspectives is important to me, along with cultural awareness and diversity, and applied ethics at work.

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.
