Susan has worked with a wide range of public, third and private sector organisations:
EXECUTIVE COACHING – SCOTTISH PRISON SERVICE
“Executive coaching has been a new way of working for me and has challenged my own personal approaches and opinions on management and indeed of Emotional Management. Working with Susan was a challenge for me, given my own self disclosed self-reliance, but she understood this and had a great deal of patience with me. My personal management style has developed much through this process and the ease of which I could discuss issues and interact with Susan went much of the way in achieving the undoubted success this process has brought”.
CAREER/CONFIDENCE BUILDING COACHING – PUBLIC SECTOR, HR SERVICES
I worked with Susan as an Executive Coach as I had issues with self-confidence affecting me both at work and at home. We gradually worked through my concerns, breaking each down and exploring positive actions I could take. Susan was able to provide me with several coping strategies and working with the Insights Discovery Colour Energies throughout sessions helped me to identify my strengths and build on them, which was invaluable. When we started the coaching programme one of my stated objectives was to improve my self confidence. Over the 12 months Susan’s coaching skills helped me improve my performance in the job I was in at the time, but also gave me the confidence to apply for other roles, which previously I had found difficult. I was successful in attaining a new role and I highly recommend Susan!
LEADERSHIP COACHING – NHS PROCUREMENT
“I achieved skills and strategies to be able to confidently have successful difficult conversations, remaining confident to tackle the issue. I am able to delegate work more effectively. Coaching with Susan helped me to develop effective leadership and change management skills to enable me to manage the team through a period of change. Building a high-performing team and having awareness of my own and team behaviours and preferences has also been a benefit of the Insights Discovery model.
ROLE TRANSITION COACHING – PUBLIC SECTOR FINANCE
“ I appreciate the insight an experienced coach can provide which prompts me to think about situations differently. I appreciate that I can talk freely and in confidence around how I can develop myself to deal with challenging colleagues. The visualisation exercise was very useful and I will do this again when things start to get a bit intense. I immediately felt more relaxed and in control. I achieved my goals and more. We covered a lot but I was able to focus on what I can do to support my team more effectively during a period of change and increased workload”.
LEADERSHIP COACHING – THIRD SECTOR
“The openness of the sessions is very helpful…your experience and knowledge in similar (managerial) situations have helped me put things into context throughout the time we have met. I realise the importance of not putting things off and to be true to myself, to trust my gut instincts. I am on the way to meeting my goals and you have helped me realise what are the important ones to prioritise”.
CAREER COACHING – VSO
“I began working with Susan in early 2014 the results have been phenomenal. Over a six month period through our sessions we explored a range of career issues. Through Susan’s emphatic and supportive solution focused approach I became equipped with the tools and strategies to overcome these barriers. This has resulted in improved confidence at work, clearer direction and ultimately promotion”.
“The colours insights profiling was very worthwhile. It provided great personal and professional insights, which were invaluable as a new team. The course allowed us to recognise individual management styles, which is really useful in working closely with a wide variety of colleagues. I have benefitted hugely from the experience, and am eager to give the opportunity to other colleagues. Susan’s training style was first class and really brought the course to life”TEAM TRAINING & COACHING
