Experience

Noel has coached hundreds of leaders in a broad range of sectors.  He is highly experienced in coaching Principals, having coaching Principals to develop a broad range of tools, processes and techniques to assist them in their role.  Noel has worked with the CSL coaching service since its inception.  Feedback from his clients has consistently been in the excellent range. 

Noel is passionate about helping Principals realise their potential and deliver superior performance. His coaching style is client driven and has as its core aim, the identification of goals and the enablers that will see those goals realised.   Noel provides a stimulating and challenging environment where the focus is on maximising performance and job satisfaction.

Noel works with coaching models which are reliable, valid and proven to work. However, he also recognises that all the expertise in the world is of little value unless it is coupled with a strong element of respect for the uniqueness of each person and their issues. He is a facilitator of change who engages his clients in possibility thinking, holds them accountable to complete their plans and challenges them to be their very best - an approach which results in real growth, real movement and career success.

It has also helped me to be more aware of my personal and leadership preferences, assisting with future planning and problem solving situations.  I loved every minute of the process and built a great relationship him. Noel has been fantastic and I can't compliment him highly enough.

I really enjoyed working with Noel. His depth of knowledge and ease with delivery of the right content and coaching at the right time to meet my needs was superb. He quickly gets to the nub of an issue and understands where the focus should be.
