Thanks for an amazing few days of coaching, I have taken so much away from this and I think has quashed a few of my fears.
I was recently promoted to a senior role within my organisation.  This was what felt like a big step up for me in my career.  I had worked for many years in the organisation and had always aspired to reach the senior leadership team but it felt very daunting stepping into the new role and joining an already well establish and respected team.   I have always believed talking to the right person makes you take a step back and evaluate your progression and potential fears etc.

I really enjoyed Nic approach, the Strength Circle analysis was extremely beneficial if only not confirming some of my well-identified strengths, it also made me look at other strengths I didn’t realise I utilised whilst within my role subconsciously and subsequently build on these strengths moving forward.

It’s really interesting to look at your strengths, with the approach to building on these along with the overall evaluation of your place within the management structure and where you would like to be going forward and how you use these strengths to benefit your career and reach your potential goal.
I have benefited greatly from gaining self-confidence within my new position in the senior leadership team and by building my personal brand within the organisation by recognising my strengths and building on them.

It also acted a little as a career psychotherapist and Nic helped evaluate my position and standing within my organisation.  This was just what I needed as at the beginning of the coaching I felt a little lost.

I have worked with Nic for 19 months and she’s supported me through a change of role.

Sometimes before the sessions I’d think I’ve got too much to do – have I got time for this? But I’d always open up in the sessions and we’d work through scenarios. Nic would question me to consider different perspectives, she would also challenge me to think through scenarios to consider consequences and challenge me to consider things differently. Challenges I was facing came up in the sessions and we’d talk through situations and it would help me to put some thoughts to bed. I’d come off of the call feeling like I had real resolution and the next steps to move forwards. It was great to have someone as a coach who wasn’t in the business to know there was no judgement in the sessions.

The main thing I gained from the sessions was confidence, an example is video calls or presenting at conferences at the beginning when we started working together I was really worried and nervous whereas now calls are fine for me and I’m so much more confident presenting to the business. I’ve gained so, so much in terms of confidence.
It’s also had an impact on the business, I now realise the importance of self-development and what a difference a coaching style has. In one to ones I understand the impact of understanding the team members and the value of each individual’s strengths. I love developing people, I really want to get the best out of someone. I ask more coaching questions with my team and see the benefits that come from that.

I’d recommend the sessions for anyone whose self-confidence isn’t quite there and anyone who is suffering from imposter syndrome.
There are many things I LOVED about my coaching sessions with Nic. At first, I found it uncomfortable to “lay my soul bare at her feet” – i.e. share my goals, thereby exposing myself to failure if I did not meet them, and revealing my unacknowledged fears in the process.

This actually proved to be a refreshing, uplifting and freeing experience. The coaching sessions with Nic left me empowered and motivated. By helping me break down my goals into action-oriented chunks, Nic allowed me to achieve more meaningful progress in three months than I had managed on my own in twelve.

And best of all, I now have Nic’s practical techniques for keeping procrastination at bay, day to day. I can still hear her voice encouraging me on my journey and reminding me of my strengths. I am confident that I will pick up the phone for more coaching in the near future, to guide me with my new set of self-imposed challenges.

I started working with Personal Strengths Coaching after positive feedback about the coaching from colleagues. The opportunity to talk through issues and blockers with someone outside the business is really helpful.

The guidance on using your strengths to overcome issues is also invaluable. It helps you recognise strengths you might not be aware of, and patterns of behaviour related to how you like to work. This helps you build on positives but also makes you aware of areas where you might not be quite so strong.

Personal Strengths Coaching helps you to deal with work situations and make you realise just how many strengths you have. The main benefits I’ve experienced are how to cope better with busy or stressful situations and how to seek help and guidance from colleagues in areas where I’m not so strong. Also, it’s a nice confidence booster to discover how many strengths and skills you possess!
I found my sessions with Nic not only a positive experience but also insightful. Nic gave me the tools to think things through in a logical and structured way, often the outcomes of our sessions would leave me excited to implement the techniques we had discussed.

Strengthscope is a fantastic tool for highlighting areas that you excel in to help drive projects forward by demonstrating the strengths within our team. Nic was very quick to understand our business and was able to adapt her questions and coaching to fit us all.

I would recommend Nic to any business or individual to help them increase productivity and morale within their teams, and actually those that don’t think they need it will most likely benefit the most.

The Strengths Coaching I have received from Nic has been second to none. She has been insightful and challenging. Nic is a patient listener and understands when to question and how to provoke your thinking in a way that is helpful and not intrusive. She has helped me to see that what may appear to be an initial symptom of an issue, is often not the root cause and she enabled me to search within myself to work through what the actual problem statement is.

It is clear that Nic is from a corporate background and that she gets large companies and how they operate. This makes her coaching relevant and shows she can be in touch with a client base that’s large or small scale.

I have no hesitation in recommending Nicola to any company that wishes to help its colleagues grow and therefore perform to an even higher standard.

The coaching sessions with Nic were really helpful and I came away from them feeling really positive and buoyed. Nic is a patient listener and understands where and when to question further to help work through issues. She quickly understood the business and was able to provided relevant, thought-provoking questions that enabled me to work though problems and identify solutions and next steps.

Her insight and questions were both helpful and encouraging, and they gave me the confidence to take actions away and progress. I would highly recommend Nic’s coaching to anyone that wants to progress, or who wants to better themselves or their team.

I have found the Strengths Coaching sessions invaluable for my fitness franchise. Time with Nicola has given me the opportunity to reflect on my achievements so far and to focus on the goals ahead.

Nicola was very engaging and showed a genuine interest in my small business; she was able to help me to identify the key to my successes and any potential barriers, challenging me to explore the ways to break down those barriers.

My business goals were what drove the sessions, which made the coaching feel relevant, and actions derived from the sessions were timely and achievable. Follow up support was also offered, and Nicola would contact me within the specified time frame, which helped with my accountability.

I would have no reservations in recommending Nicola’s services to anyone who wants to explore and optimise their personal strengths, whether that be a leader, manager or small business owner.
