Organisations can be tough places to navigate. You hope that your talents will be seen and appreciated, you’ll have trusting relationships with your colleagues, a space to flourish and the opportunity to make a positive difference.
All too often the reality is different: feeling unappreciated, little influence yet overloaded by unrealistic targets and expectations, plus a lack of mutually respectful relationships.
Collaborating with others is hard! It takes energy and commitment to create a positive work culture. Coaching can help you become a better leader: courageous, empathetic, inclusive and self-aware.

How I work
Leaders and aspiring leaders often seek out coaching at these key transition points in their career:
- Going for promotion
- Newly promoted to a more senior role and wanting help to make a success of it
- Already senior and seeking to be reenergised
- Transitioning out of an organisational role into a portfolio career.
I see the client for 90 minute sessions each month for at least 6 months.
The line manager or Chair will be the sponsor of the programme – involved in setting coaching goals and evaluating progress.
Although the organisation sponsors the coaching, the content of our conversations stays confidential between coaching client and coach.
I work best with clients who are dynamic, action-oriented and values-led and who want structured reflection time so they can become more strategic in their actions.
You may be suffering from impostor syndrome. I’ll help you find solid ground – self awareness and self belief that will stand you in good stead for many years to come.
Liz helped me to adapt to leading a department of 2000 people with responsibility for raising 40% of UK tax revenues. She is supportive and responsive to individual needs, but also highly focussed so that we got excellent value out of each session.
Liz’s skilful facilitation of our sessions ensured that discussions flowed easily while staying focused. Her energy, insights and encouragement were invaluable.
Liz combines the analytical and strategic skills of a lawyer with originality and openness to new ideas. She understands the reality of being a 21st century lawyer or businesswoman without assuming that this entails selling one’s soul.
Liz’s coaching put a solid floor underneath me as a leader. This nurturing accountability relationship enabled me to leave a strong legacy: a senior leadership team who can lead the organisation when I move on.
Liz makes you want to overcome any doubts and ensure that you make your rightful contribution to the world.
I sought out Liz as a coach because I felt I had lost my mojo and didn’t know where I was going. She quickly understood of who I am and how I operate and flexed her style to create an approach that worked for me. I’m now moving confidently towards the future.
