Experience in one to one coaching (Max. 300 words)


I completed ‘The School Leader as Coach‘ programme with the Regional Training Unit (RTU) and went on to become an assessor for PQH candidates. As part of this I met with clients and coached them individually on a regular basis. I worked as coach in cluster groups with Principals and middle managers regionally and internally with my colleagues. I have mentored first time Principals as part of professional development and have been able to bring performance coaching and developmental coaching to all situations. My approach is one of helping the client to get the very best performance out of themselves, of releasing potential. In helping people through a process of questioning and self- discovery they come to a place where they have an increased capacity to work autonomously when facing new challenges.
