Having had “doubts” about coaching in the past, I am now convinced of its value. I have found the whole experience of working with Anneliese positive, self-affirming and extremely worthwhile.
When we first met my professional life was very unsettled. I had been involved in considerable organisational change in recent years, was unsure of my future career direction and had a poor relationship with a line manager.
The coaching sessions helped me to remain resilient during the last few weeks in my role and to plan the next steps in my career. I have regained my self-confidence, have a greater awareness of my leadership qualities and strengths, and developed a better understanding of how to manage potentially challenging professional relationships. Anneliese is a very good listener, non-judgemental and good at reflecting back. She challenged certain assumptions and beliefs in a positive way and has helped me to feel human again! I have now been successful in applying for a new post and will take the learning points forward into my next role. Thank you Anneliese. Objectives well and truly met – and exceeded!
