Experience in one to one coaching
My coaching experience started in London working for an international management consultancy, specialised in the field of human motivation. During this time, I worked closely with the principle behavioural scientist and delivered leadership development programmes for senior executives & management teams.
I have coached individuals from various industries (including Real Estate, Fund Management, Energy & Petrochemicals, Executive Search, Recruitment, & PR) and in numerous locations (e.g. UK, Holland, France, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Singapore). Furthermore, I have been a CSL coach for the past 3 years, experienced working both in-person or virtually with coachees.
I am committed to learning and development, where I utilise coaching techniques to inspire individuals to reflect, raise self-awareness, develop action plans and ultimately unlock their potential. I focus on outcomes that enable people to move beyond their perceived limits, improving their interpersonal relationships and organisational performance. I place great importance on building rapport and establishing trust in coaching relationships, allowing individuals to feel uninhibited when discussing and gaining clarity around their beliefs, values, strengths and weaknesses. I take a pragmatic approach, offering challenge and support, to help coachees play to their unique strengths in achieving their goals.
Testimonials from previous CSL coachees:
“I believe that as a result of coaching I have changed some of my behaviours – particularly my work behaviours in a very positive way.”
“I feel stronger, more able to deal with the rough and tumble of the job.”
“The opportunity to reflect, plan, articulate and design a roadmap for the way ahead is invaluable and incredibly empowering.”
“As I result of my work with Louise, I value myself a lot more. This has helped me to gain confidence in many ways and I now am moving forward with a clearer vision of the improvements I wish to see.”
