Company Description

Family dynamics and inter-relational problems can have an enormous impact on the smooth running of a company as well as on work performance and general wellbeing. Coming from a family business background myself, I’m well aware of the emotional challenges working with relatives can bring. 

Because of this hands-on experience I made it my mission to help individuals as well as teams to reach their full potential. When the line between ‘home’ and ‘work’ blurs uncomfortably, my job is to create an initial ‘safe-space’ and facilitate the development of a culture that is sustainable for many generations to come. 

How do I do this? Through 1-1 coaching, group mentoring and/or bespoke training & workshops

-We coach to build self-awareness, improve leadership, performance, wellbeing and/or resilience.

-We design bespoke courses based on empirical evidence and psychologically sound models.

-We help with profiling to minimise your recruitment costs by efficiently assessing new talent, existing staff, or high potential leaders.
