Leadership & Strengths Coaching
Being in a leadership role can be a rewarding, challenging and sometimes lonely place. Our leadership & strengths coaching offers a safe and confidential space, with the support for personal and professional growth. Our Gallup strengths based focus brings confidence and proactive action towards goals.
ADHD coaching is tailored to the individual needs and goals of each client. We work with you every step of the way to ensure that you have the tools and support you need to manage your ADHD symptoms, focus on your strengths, achieve your goals and live a fulfilling life. Our coaches are all ADHD and bring lived experience.
Good Girl Deprogramming
We help clients overcome their "Good girl" conditioning, the societal expectations and norms that are imposed on girls and women. It refers to the idea that girls and women are expected to be compliant, and polite, and to prioritise the needs and wants of others over their own. We can help you deprogramme.
We support individuals with career coaching to help navigate the job market and achieve their career goals. We can help you identify your strengths and passions, create a job search strategy, and prepare for interviews. Our work together will create momentum, confidence, and the change you are looking for.
What Did Clients Say About
Working With Michelle
Of all the people I have ever met, Michelle has helped me the most with my career. She is very knowledgeable and has loads of contacts (she will definitely know who you need to talk to), but what I like the most is the fact that Michelle is very approachable and easy to talk to, my sessions with her were genuinely fun and I always looked forward to them.
I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone who wants to grow as a person or in their career.
Michelle has made an enormous difference to my self belief and helped me to gain personal clarity regarding what success looks like for me and my next career steps. She is a fantastic coach and mentor, who brings a contagious energy and genuine kindness to her sessions.
Michelle will always go above and beyond to ensure that she delivers and is providing you with the best support and advice possible - from the small things such as recommending a good motivational book or reflection technique, to using psychometrics to help you identify your strengths and blind spots, and connecting you with like minded individuals and opportunities.
I would highly recommend anyone to reach out to Michelle and to engage with one of her coaching programmes.
What Did Clients Say About
Working With James
If you're wondering if there is anyone, or anything, out there to help hone in on your strengths, and improve inspiration for the future, it's James and Gallup Strength Coaching.
Working with James coincided with a considerable life choice/event: going to Grad School. I actually think working with James preceded this as I gained insights into my strengths, I gained momentum to move towards my academic goals. As my academic goals complement my professional and personal goals, working to advocate for social justice causes, it was timely and valuable to work with James to build confidence and self-awareness during our time uncovering my strengths.
I've had the pleasure of seeing James find what he's born to do and that is to coach! When I found out he was qualifying as a Gallup Strengths Coach I jumped at the opportunity to work with him. Having worked with a Gallup Strengths Coach before you might ask yourself, why do it again?
I wanted to work with James specifically because of his invaluable array of previous experience in Sales. It was all well and good knowing what makes me tick but I wanted to know how I could tangibly apply this to my business and turn my Strengths into Sales! James did just that and more! I wouldn't hesitate to be coached by him again!
Supporting a Director to achieve a significant promotion
Our client was faced with an exciting (and daunting) opportunity to go after a big promotion within the public sector. We worked together over several months to bring greater self-awareness of their Gallup strengths, gaining confidence in their identity and what will bring success in the new role, plus support through the recruitment process. They made the shortlist and offered the role.
Helping a Head of Talent & OD to play bigger & raise their profile
Our client had faced many challenging life events, including an ADHD diagnosis. Despite this, there was also a desire to really step up to own her new role, and show the organisation what she was capable of. James & Michelle both coached this client using their differing professional expertise to process the diagnosis, create an action plan with timelines, gain a stronger identity and take the lead in a more confident and compelling way.
Helping a manager to overcome the fear of the unknown & go after more
Our client believed that they had some potential and could leave their current role to find something better. Their challenge was having the courage, the confidence, and the preparation to make this happen. Working with Michelle, they got over their fear of interviews, left the organisation, secured a new role, and since joining has asked for - and received - a further pay rise.
Coaching a founder to step into a more strategic role as CEO
Our client had successfully founded and grown a business to a point of needing to step back from the day-to-day operations, and transition to a less hands-on yet more strategic position. This was a big change that required work linked to identity, strengths, defining responsibilities, passions, and what gave them energy. This led to a less-stressed, more confident person who could embrace their new role and goals.
