Case Studies

Coaching

Woman Returner

A Senior Manager within the Public Sector took time out to raise her family. Caroline helped her to rebuild confidence, re-evaluate her skill set, re-write her CV, increase performance in Selection Processes and secure a role that matched her level of experience and fitted in with home life.

Increasing Leadership Skills
Senior Manager was given feedback he was being too aggressive with his team, which was having a negative impact on their performance. Caroline helped him to understand what was causing this, and showed him how to develop different skills and behaviours to increase his impact and enhance his team’s performance. Feedback from his team, after 3 months, showed he had stopped being aggressive, was listening and including his team more, which resulted in them being more motivated and productive.

 

Promotion
A first line Manager in the Financial Services Sector was struggling to get to the next level. Caroline helped him to look at what was blocking him and to develop the skills needed to move to the next level. He has now progressed to a Senior Manager role.
