Some of the areas I coach executives in are:
Clarify, prioritse and develop a realistic and actionable plan for pursuing your goals.
Overcome old hurdles by identifying what is holding you back.
Constructively implement feedback from annual performance reviews.
Align your professional goals with your personal values and purpose.
Identify development needs to fulfil mandate of new role.
Ensure you have what it takes in order to move to the next level.
Understand the dynamics and culture of your new organisation/team and how to make the transition as smooth as possible.
Make a meaningful career plan that is aligned with your personal values.
Come up with realistic strategies for stepping into a new career path.
Improve communication skills and prepare for interviews.
Keep motivation and confidence levels high while you are implementing your new plan.

I coach senior executives in various functional and commercial roles in a range of sectors and industries:
Private equity / Venture capital
During this session you would tell me about your current situation and coaching objectives. I would also tell you a bit more about myself and my coaching style. Finally, we would go over any questions you might have and the process going forward.
We would form a bespoke coaching programme based on your agenda and coaching needs. However, you need to undestand that in order to effect meaningful change you would have to invest time and put in the effort. Based on experience, for a programme to be most effective it typically takes five to six sessions, lasting 90-120 minutes, over a period of about six months.
During the coaching programme we would form a true partnership that would be based on mutual trust and respect as well as honesty. I would also expect you to commit to doing the necessary work required, which we would agree on at the end of each session. That is crucial for the effectiveness of the coaching programme.
During our coaching programme and in between sessions, I would be available to support you via phone or email. Your feedback would be welcome at the end of every session; there would also be a more formal evaluation halfway through and at the end of the programme to ensure that you are getting the most out of your coaching sessions.
My coaching style has been described as highly empathetic with the ability to quickly build trusting relationships with my clients.
During coaching sessions, I form strong partnerships with my clients and create a safe space for them to raise their self-awareness levels as well as think freely and creatively in order to clarify their goals and work out how to achieve these.
While remaining empathetic, I ensure that my clients maintain focus by having accountability for their actions so as to reach their full potential.
