Businesses on a global scale are currently experiencing an all-time low in terms of trust in leadership. There is a huge need to update the way we see leaders, and how those leaders operate. The old-style leadership of macho behaviour and competition is no longer relevant to the way in which we work today.
Effective leadership is all about creating a sustainable environment at work in which people can grow, develop and perform at their best. Effective leaders are happy and healthy people – the ability to be a good leader should have a focus on all areas of life, not just on the professional side.
Effective leadership in the 21st century is not about telling people what to do, but about being an example of how to do things and about inspiring, motivating, engaging and influencing them.
My clients become effective leaders by:
Building confidence and self-belief
Enhancing leadership presence and impact
Growing their ability to motivate and inspire people
Creating more enjoyment, satisfaction and fulfilment
Leaders are created from the inside. Your confidence and self-belief is of the utmost importance in effective leadership. Your thoughts and feelings govern how you come across to others. My coaching allows you to gradually dispel negative emotions about yourself, and build up the conviction that you are there to lead your people, to inspire and to influence.
I coach leaders on, amongst many other things, the importance of being trustworthy. This building of trust is crucial and enables you to inspire people with your vision. And as a result of this, they are happy and eager to follow and collaborate.
This effective leadership style pulls the team together and makes the journey so much more rewarding.
This is effective leadership – creating a happy and effective group of people and establishing a climate in which everyone can thrive whilst realising the vision and the desired outcomes.
My coaching enables you to learn how to engage people, how to fulfil people and how to get the best out of people.
Most of all, you learn that leadership effectiveness is about being a superhero. Being an effective leader is about allowing your team of people to realise their own worth and value in a sustainable way.
Ultimately, effective leadership is an enormous honour and privilege. It improves your own life, and your peoples’ lives. It comes with great responsibility – but the richness and the insights that it brings will be one of the most fulfilling things you can achieve in life.

It’s the end of the week. Taking a look at her action list, Operations Director Frazzled Freda notices it’s not got any shorter. In fact, it’s got longer – even though she’s finally managed to complete a number of priority tasks. What’s been happening? First, there was the conversation with her second in command, Ian.…
In the second of my blogs about finding your identity as a leader, I want to talk about confidence. Something recently-promoted Operations Director Frazzled Freda had in abundance in her former lead scientist role, but which seems to be eluding her in her new position. What’s gone wrong? Let’s take a look back at Freda’s…
