I had the absolute pleasure of being coached by Barbara through a number of career progressions and personal challenges. Barbara’s genuine warmth and care for me holistically allowed us to rapidly build trust and explore sometime confronting aspects of my leadership style and personality. Her approach of focusing on development opportunities in the moment and on mission critical initiatives meant that what I discovered and learned about myself was instantly applicable and impactful. The targeted use of analytical tools complemented Barbara’s insights and anecdotes and her knack of holding me to account.
I have no doubt that my growth with Barbara has contributed to the leadership and personal success I have achieved to date and will stay with me well into the future.

Working with Barbara has enabled me to understand what I need to do to deal with uncertainty and complexity. For me it is all about focusing and being mentally engaged rather than constantly worrying about what might be.

Only our rich personal resources can fuel us to become, and then sustain ourselves, as effective leaders. These skills can only truly be revealed from deep awareness and a genuine rigor to ask the questions that will make the most difference. Then, one must apply these learnings and understandings day to day to create success in every aspect of our business (and life) which require them.
Barbara’s brilliant and insightful guidance will unlock the exact resources to take you on a bold, fulfilling and richly rewarding experience which will, without question, make an enormous and lasting difference in any area you have the courage to delve into. The beauty and wisdom of this approach is there is nothing to be ‘fixed’, only forged, and with that comes such instinctive repair and sustained alignment.
A journey not to be underestimated nor missed. After 31 years of running my own company, I feel renewed and resourced in a way which was long overdue and genuinely welcomed.
