Meet the coach interview
As an ICF MCC professional coach, I am passionate about partnering with leaders at all levels and in different areas of life to navigate change and opportunities in a complex and ambiguous world. I support my clients to lead in alignment with their purpose and highest authentic values (what matters most to them) which ignites their inspiration and energy to lead through even the most challenging of times.
The International Coaching Federation (ICF) – the largest global coaching credentialing body – says coaching is based on the premise that ‘people are naturally creative resourceful and whole.’ And I believe when we coach people/teams from this perspective: it opens up hearts, minds, incredible possibilities and the untapped power within!
Having lived in Australia, Middle East and UK and working with global, blue-chip organisations throughout my career in various roles, I appreciate the challenge of continuous change and embrace the never-ending learning opportunities which present themselves. And importantly, I also embrace diversity, inclusion and having a voice for what matters.
Who I work with:
· Are leaders right through to CEO level and specialists
· Seek transformation change in their personal or professional life
· Want to move from ambition to purposeful meaning in their lives
· Seek clarity about themselves – what they truly want – and want to make effective, empowering decisions, even when it’s difficult
· Want to connect with who they truly are
· Are coaches who want to master their skills and create awareness about their blind spots about who they are as a coach – to expand and embody ways of being that will support themselves and their clients
· Professional coaching (leadership, executive, life, purpose and values)
· Group and team coaching
· Coach training for new and experienced coaches (ICF approved)
· Coach Mentoring for credentialing purposes
· Coach Super-Vision
· Facilitation of bespoke workshops
· Extended DISC
· Daring WayTM workshops
My professional coaching experience, which began in 2007, includes leadership, life and executive coaching, as well as coach mentoring and supervision, coach training and facilitation. I passionately support organizations and individuals to achieve their goals and discover their hidden and powerful potential at a deep level paying attention to habits, emotions and the soma in connection with the mind and heart, combined with the neuroscience of coaching. This is intended to support clients to create expanded awareness and transformational behavioural change which is measurable and beyond expectations.
In 2012, my business partner and I co-founded Empower World in the Middle East – a professional coaching and coach training organization, which now offers its services (including coach mentoring and supervision, facilitation and design of bespoke workshops) globally online. Our coach training programmes, which are designed for new coaches and experienced coaches, are ICF-approved and offer CEUs for coaches wanting to retain or upgrade their credentials.
In 2015, I also began a partnership with Rachel Petero who trained as a coach with Empower World and together we launched The Rise 2025 professional coach training programme which has attracted indigenous women and men from New Zealand, the Pacific Islands, Canada and Australia.
