Coaching Style and Approach

Anne’s success as a coach is based on a personal style that has integrity at its heart and a methodology that uses robust, evidenced based techniques which are proven to be successful including positive psychology, neuroscience, emotional intelligence, the Thinking Environment® and the Resilient Leaders Elements (RLE™) tool.

Her philosophy is based on the belief that everyone has the capacity to change and is equally capable of coming up with the solution that is right for them and the organisation given the time and space to do so. She believes that to ensure quality outcomes leaders need time to think in a ‘safe’ space so that clients can do their best thinking and arrive at solutions that work for them. This can be face-to-face or virtual. 

Specifically, when leading through challenging times she will ensure that clients are able to identify the desired outcome; what might be preventing them from taking the next step and finally work with them to create a plan to achieve their goals.  An integral part of Anne’s approach is to clearly agree with the client from the outset what they most need and then review frequently to check whether those needs are being met.
