A WORD FROM CATHY
I work with people who are creating a positive impact in the world — no matter how large or small. There’s a certain type of person who sees that what they do isn’t about them, it’s about something beyond themselves; something bigger than us.
If you’re reading this, then I suspect you are one of those people.
My work is to inspire you and to coach you to be your very best. I have a deep understanding of human performance and what it means to be a leader — both personal leadership — being the very best we can be, and professional leadership — how you show up in the world and how you create change through others.
It’s simple; when you change, you have the capacity to change the world.
I WORK WITH PEOPLE IN DIFFERENT WAYS
Tailored Coaching Programmes
I create powerful conversations that shift your world.
When I work with you I’m looking for your potential to make a positive difference. That might be in a political or policy role, it might be in a senior leadership role in a business of non-profit, or it might be as an advocate for change. You are simply someone who looks beyond yourself when you judge the value of what you do. Welcome to the club.
Aside from my personal clients, most of the rest of my work is done in collaboration with someone else. That might be with a colleague, or with an organisation and their leadership team. I design and deliver powerful training, innovative seminars and workshops, and engaging talks.
When we pool our expertise and experience we create something that is greater than the sum of the parts. Plus, it’s way more fun to work together than to work alone!
Together We Create Magic
Change comes when we see something differently — I call it transformation because we are creating the kind of insights — a way of seeing something — that cannot be ‘unseen’.
MY CLIENTS HAVE QUESTIONS LIKE:
How can I be a more powerful leader?
How can I create dramatic change in my organisation and beyond my organisation?
How do I, and my team, perform at the highest level in an uncertain world?
How can I get clarity about the next phase of my life?
How can I scale the impact of what I do to create positive change in the world?
How can I balance the professional and the personal so that I achieve what I know I am capable of without it taking such a big cost on my family and personal life?
EACH PROGRAMME IS DESIGNED FOR YOU (AND YOUR TEAM)
Most of the programmes start with an immersion so that we can jumpstart your success and create dramatic results in a short space of time.
The work we do together — that life-changing, world-changing transformation — is done in and between conversations.
The space between our time is as important as the hour or hours we spend together — insights come when they come. We all know that a quiet mind — walking the dog, taking a shower — is when our best ideas strike, and it’s the same with the coaching process — something may strike you hours or days after a conversation.
What we create together goes well beyond superficial behavioural change.
I won’t be teaching you the latest tactic, or asking you to remember what to do in certain situations. We work ‘upstream’ of that behaviour, in a place that is the source of why you see the world the way you do, how you create your day-to-day experiences (and therefore how to change them), and how to achieve the impact that you want in your world.
I think this quote from Bruce Springsteen sums it up perfectly,
I feel like to do my job right, when I walk out onstage I’ve got to feel like it’s the most important thing in the world. I’ve also got to feel like, well, it’s only rock and roll. Somehow I’ve got to believe both of those things.
I help you achieve world-class performance and have enough perspective on what you do that things begin to flow more naturally and you fall in love with your life and work again. Which, by the way, raises your performance yet higher.
THIS IS POWERFUL, REMARKABLE WORK AND WHEN I AM WITH YOU,
YOU ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON IN THE ROOM
That applies to my personal life as well as the work that I do. I create dedicated hours of the week, and weeks of the year when I’m not accessible for client work because my family comes first.

I look forward to talking to you!
