Coaching Methods

I am married with three adult children, two grandchildren (12 and 6). I have been working with people in organisations all of my career. Encouraging people and teams to improve their skills and knowledge around communication and how this can be grown through professional development. I have been a volunteer leader for Guides New Zealand and St John’s Youth while my own children were growing up, and volunteered for Bellyful providing meals supporting families with newborns.

Chrysalis Education is my business and it came from my own passion of working with businesses to improve their communication and understanding of their teams. This work is creating workplaces that are harmonious and everyone understands what each brings to the team. Projects run better, managers understand the strengths in their teams so that work can be redirected to leverage the strengths that individuals have, collaboration becomes a core part of the team in the true sense of the word to “get stuff done”, communication improves, objectives met and managers become better communicators.

I am a Strengths Network Accredited Top 5, All 34/Advanced and Team coach with 8 years experience working with businesses around New Zealand. I can work with your teams face to face in New Zealand or through online portals. I have coached with companies who have people in Canada, Phillipines, India and Australia. I am also a certified Adult Educator/Trainer and Project Manager with a PMP Certification and I am very comfortable delivering workshops for groups and running large projects with many people in companies.

If changing the way you look at professional development is important or improving the outcomes of projects or team communication is a key focus for your business success, then I am available to meet to talk about your people, business and the success you want to achieve going forward. Please do not hesitate to contact me. I’m only a phone call away.
