Unleash your potential
Applying expertise in neuroscience and emotional intelligence to coaching for greater fulfilment and performance
Thriving and performing
I am a professional executive coach accredited by the Association for Coaching with more than ten years of proven results in coaching and facilitation.
I work as a leadership, culture change and career coach/facilitator to help clients thrive and deliver. Both are highly interconnected as finding fulfilment and performance at work start with being in the right job to unlock potential.
I combine traditional coaching techniques with my expertise in neuroscience and emotional intelligence as well as 20 years of senior-level operational business experience to deliver long-lasting change.
I have around 1400 hours of coaching with approx 250 people. Clients range from C Suites and BU teams to CEOs, directors and managers in FTSE 100 companies (LVMH, Shell, Tesco, The NHS…), SMEs and start-ups across a wide range of sectors in the UK and abroad.
leadership and culture change coaching/facilitation
As an employee, a manager or a leader, you have to continuously adapt to new situations, new strategic and operational expectations, conflicting priorities and people’s demands. It can feel relentless, ineffective, isolating and stressful. And the current pandemic has only made it worse.
To perform, you need clarity, focus and resilience.
You also need trusting relationships, as together people create ideas, purpose, strategy and culture. Leaders give direction and with their team co-design and nurture culture based on values and behaviours to align and engage employees and collectively thrive, grow and perform.
I offer coaching, group facilitation and talks to organisations, teams and individuals in culture change, mindsets and aligned behaviours to embed change and improve performance and wellbeing.
“I worked with Sophie on various challenges, from turning around a business and changing its culture, to creating collective alignment and collaboration for effective execution. Her experience, amazing listening skills and ability to read situations and people give her a rare emotional intelligence. She understands how to find collective intelligence to create cohesion while using her business acumen and leadership expertise to deliver on change. Never in my career, have I successfully managed critical change so ‘easily’. I wouldn’t have dared to deal with some of those topics without her help.” Supply Chain Director
As an individual looking for a new role, or even your first role after university, you might be following a very similar journey with stress, uncertainty and isolation.
Clarity on your purpose (who you are and what you want) is essential for defining a meaningful role. Strategic focus on your action plan is critical to get the job. Working with emotions and behaviours is a must for self-confidence and resilience. And of course, strong relationship skills help you connect through the recruitment process, get the job and successfully settle into your role.
I work with all clients from graduates to leaders.
