Business case: To support this very successful lady as she transitioned in her career, ensuring that she ended one phase and started another, based on what was right for her at this time.
“I utilised Leisha services at a cross roads in my work life. I had just recently left a high profile Global retail position. I had very much been defined by my work roles until I started a family, at which point I found it difficult to juggle my work life commitments. I took the leap of faith to start my own consultancy services and enlisted the help and guidance of Leisha to be my Coach through this reinvention. I couldn’t recommend Leisha more as an executive and life Coach. She really helped me stay focused and on track. She helped me focus on my strengths rather then dwell on my weaknesses. I worked with Leisha for 3 months and saw her either weekly or bimonthly. I always looked forward to our time together, she was always a tremendous support, extremely positive. Leisha has a unique ability to recognise ‘where you are’ and assist you with understanding ‘where you need to be’ whilst offering up the tools on ‘how to get there’. During our time together a number of opportunities came my way, I felt from our sessions I was able to make the right decision quickly and easily. I would (and have) recommended her to friends and work colleagues.
To help this newly appointed professional take over the management of a team he was once a part of.
“The coaching was invaluable in terms of allowing me to position myself within the new leadership role I assumed within the team; I strongly believe that the action items we agreed and which I implemented helped establish my credibility. The knock-on effect for the organisation is to have a highly engaged and effective team in place. Leisha continuously resists the temptation to advise in any given situation. This I believe creates a space in which viable solutions emerge through dialogue and self-reflection. This approach can be challenging! However, I do believe that it allowed me to become more confident in my own instincts and to reach conclusions which I felt were both actionable and achievable.”
Following some internal changes within the business this client needed some support in figuring out what he wanted from his career and how to overcome some of the internal challenges that he faced.
“I found it very useful to talk confidentially and openly about the challenges I experience in work outside the workplace and then to work on a one to one basis to build the skillset to overcome those challenges.“
Support in the roll out of a company-wide Career model.
“Although, Leisha joined the project a significant way down the road towards rollout, her expert input on the design of the model and rollout approach gave us a more robust output in both the model itself and how we rolled it out. We found her to be easy to work with and collaborative. She challenged our thinking, ensuring our approach was robust, and added leading practice thinking to the mix.”
Following a takeover and recent promotion to FD level, this client needed support to maximise the impact she could make in a positive and commercial sense.
“I am more equipped for my role and can add more value in that capacity because of that. Additionally I am able to manage my team more effectively and so get more from them in terms of output and value. I am more focussed on the strategic aspect of my role and how carving out specific time for that will benefit me more than working on items I should be delegating.”
To support a CEO who had recently been promoted from an internal position within the company.
“When my position changed from a technical role to a management role, we engaged
Leisha as a professional coach. Leisha’s approach was a combination of targeted
reading as well as probing questions which led to a number of light-bulb moments.
The early tangible benefits included a more accurate appraisal of my own strengths
and weaknesses, and action plans to maintain that which was good, and improve upon that which was not. The longer term results include a greater sense of purpose and confidence, as well as developing a practical toolkit to help achieve both long- and short-term goals. While the sessions are usually challenging – and sometimes uncomfortably so – the net result is the self-realisation which has been beneficial in both professional and personal life”
Business Case: Designing and delivering a tailored coaching programme for a new graduate recruit”
Working with Leisha on my personal development has enabled me to successfully align my own personal objectives with that of the organisation. Through her continued support and guidance I have been given the confidence to tackle the various tasks that the role demands on both a functional and behavioural level.
Business Case: Designing and piloting a bespoke mentoring programme for a Government Department operating in multiple locations
Leisha’s role in designing and rolling-out the pilot was critical in the successful delivery of this programme. Leisha listened carefully to our objectives and suggestions and brought forward a solution which met our organisation’s needs. I have no hesitation in recommending Leisha for the design and implementation of a mentoring programme.
Business Case: Designing a tailored psychometric process to act as an accurate filtering tool for ongoing high volume recruitment.
I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Leisha to anyone who is interested in introducing psychometrics into their business. Leisha’s practical view of recruitment and willingness to listen to us allowed her to tailor the tool to our very specific needs and culture. Leisha doesn’t make assumptions but informed decisions. She is a pleasure to work with
