I am an ICF-accredited executive and mindset coach specialised in high-performance leadership and change. I support clients from senior executives through to ambitious entrepreneurs and have coached clients in over 15 countries, focusing principally on the UK, US and Europe. I have particular experience with ultra-high net worth families and am a strong fit for coachees who have a fundamental drive to change and a desire to achieve extraordinary goals.
My coaching approach supports the coachee to discover and activate a powerful 'IDEA Mindset' to achieve their goals, established in my book 'The IDEA Mindset' published in 2022. I facilitate a reflective and strengths-centred exploration in which clients establish a freeing mindset based on the four pillars of Identity, Direction, Engagement and Authenticity. This helps them to maximise performance, identify new opportunities that play to their strengths and design their perfect working life.
I have been coaching and mentoring individuals and teams throughout my career, as a strategy consultant and more recently in senior leadership positions (executive board) for two major global retailers. I am an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) with the International Coaching Federation (ICF), a Gallup-certified Strengths Coach and a holder of a Professional Certificate in Executive Coaching from Henley Business School in the UK.
My background encompasses medicine, science and sport. I qualified as a medical doctor with a PhD and later coached and competed as a professional ballroom dancer at European and World Championships. I am also on the board of the Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance.
My own strengths profile is Maximiser | Strategic | Activator | Responsibility | Futuristic. What does this mean? Maximiser: I will help you make what is good into something great. Strategic: I will help you shape and prioritise the options ahead. Activator: I will help you get going to make change happen. Responsibility: you can trust me to do what I say I will do. Futuristic: I will help you look to the future and set out a path to achieve your ultimate goal. Using the power of Gallup CliftonStrengths I will help you and your team discover and activate your own strengths profiles just like this. It's no surprise that strengths coaching has been shown to unlock double-digit growth in productivity and performance.
