Coaching Style

Coaching usually involves working with people who have achieved a good deal of success in their careers but whose future development requires them to shift perspective to augment their technical competence with perhaps a more strategic vision, or to develop a leadership style that has greater emotional awareness. Valerie’s style focuses on strengths and key areas of development often using psychometrics to create greater self-awareness, aimed at helping clients reach their full potential. Valerie combines a style that is both supportive and challenging whilst providing a space that allows clients to take accountability for developing their own goals and actions. She has a toolkit based on research and experience that she is happy to share at the right moment.
