Coaching is a series of one-to-one sessions that form a partnership between you and your coach. The role of coaching is to work with you to achieve better results in your chosen area, results that you may not achieve without the support, accountability and expertise of a qualified coach. It is not therapy, mentoring or consulting.

Individuals who engage in a coaching relationship can expect to experience fresh perspectives on personal challenges and opportunities, new ideas and tools, enhanced thinking and decision-making skills, enhanced interpersonal effectiveness, and increased confidence in carrying out their chosen work and life roles.

Coaching outcomes can include:
  • Increasing presence, impact, visibility and profile
  • Leadership decision making and strategic thinking
  • Promotion, advancement and career boosts
  • Leading and empowering teams
  • Resilience and overcoming challenges with difficult people
  • Career and life visioning and planning
  • Work/life balance, well-being and stress reduction.
  • Diversity and inclusion and the advancement of women in the workplace
  • Social and community projects to advance women and girls

"The 1-2-1 coaching sessions were invaluable and inspirational. Not only did it really challenge my thinking and push me to question the ways I do things but my coach has really helped my thinking in my role as Talent Strategy Director and how to better influence people. I am confident this coaching has helped lead me to a recent appointment on the Leadership Team."

“The coaching I received from Dr Sam Collins helped me to fully embrace my leadership style and truly arrive in ‘CEO-land’. Now, just 6 months later, I cannot believe how much confidence I have gained, how I can communicate more effectively and how I am able to focus on my strengths and use them to lead in my role. It’s not just about my personal growth, as a result I have been able to grow the staff I manage and the impact on the organisation overall has been phenomenal. Thank you.”
