Executive Coach and Diversity Consultant.
Claire coaches a diverse range of clients at different stages of their careers, but with the shared goal of using coaching to enhance learning and performance.
During the ongoing COVID 19 crisis, Claire is supporting clients as they face unprecedented challenges in their new working environments, such as leadership via video conferencing, planning in an uncertain future, live/work balance, team culture, mental well-being and redundancy.
The role of director can be both exhilarating and isolating presenting professional and personal challenges. Claire’s work as MD of a successful agency as well as working with high profile clients, gives her a unique insight into the pressures that come with leadership.
Are you a team or a group of individuals? Does the team leader lead through the team or sit across it? Do you succeed together and fail together? Claire coaches the team to achieve a common sense of purpose, by exploring team dynamics, leadership styles and values, and supports the team in building trust and accountability.
The leaders of tomorrow inhabit a very different world from the leaders of today: SMART Working, a better live/work balance, often digitally ‘on’ 24/7. Coaching plays a vital role in enhancing performance of Generation Y, gaining self awareness, a greater sense of control and prepares them for leadership.
Gender diversity at senior level is still a goal rather than a reality. The value of promoting women to senior positions and retaining them has a proven positive impact on organisations. Senior women benefit from specialist coaching from a practitioner that has experienced and understands the challenges they face.
Balancing the demands of career with a young family is both challenging and often exhausting, coaching plays a vital role in supporting new parents to navigate this challenge. Coaching supports clients prior to maternity leave and with their transition back to work.
