Coaching with Nurturing Confidence you will become a more effective communicator and leader. You will develop new skills, become more confident and feel more calmly in control of your work and life.
Who is it for?
We work with mid-level leaders in large organisations and senior leaders in small to medium sized organisations – with professionals who recognise that they need to think and behave more strategically, to have greater impact in complex workplaces. (typically AO6 – Director level)
When you finish coaching with Nurturing Confidence you will have:
Increased confidence to tackle challenging people, problems and opportunities
Stronger relationships with team, peers and leaders above you
Individualised, practical, leadership toolkit that you use regularly & consistently
Enhanced self-awareness with increased capacity to articulate strengths, development areas and the value you bring to your organisation
Feel more in control of your time and workload, less stressed and enjoying your life beyond work.
Beginning with a 1.5-hour exploratory session and self-assessment to understand your current situation and development stage, seeking feedback from peers, team members and leaders above you (if desired), we will co-create a development program that helps you more confidently tackle the challenges you are currently facing, whilst also preparing you to step up into more next step opportunities.
