I am now much more confident about my role and my experience as a Project Manager. I was struggling to find the right role because of my lack of confidence in interviews, and I needed more focus in my job search strategy. My coaching programme with Liz helped me to connect with the right people and to show my leadership ability at interview. Employers can now see clearly how I can add value to their organisation, and particularly in how I can handle challenging situations, so that I received two job offers from my next two interviews.
The coaching programme with Liz gave me the combination of confidence and a “toolkit” to handle communications with colleagues. I found the sessions very rewarding in terms of mindfulness, a chance to step away from the desk and think through certain situations. I’m now a bit better at handling interruptions, but still find myself caught in the trap sometimes!
“Liz did excellent work facilitating staff consultation workshops as part of the development of our strategic plan. Liz got a really positive response from the participants and produced excellent input for the planning process. We plan to involve Liz again with the next stage of our strategy implementation.”
“Liz Barron is an excellent coach. I have known and worked with Liz for a number of years and have always found her to be very focused and effective. As a coach Liz gets to the core of an issue quickly, while simultaneously challenging and supporting you. Her genuineness and openness is what I believe makes Liz a coach anyone can work with.”
We contacted Liz with a view to improving team dynamics, and general lines of communication and working together … Our first session was well received and has already borne fruit in improving the different ways different team members thrive and work best.
Liz is an excellent facilitator, guiding the session, but remaining outside the group, thus allowing the team to bond while working together. We look forward to part two.
“Taking Liz on as a personal coach was a leap into the unknown… I found was an extremely professional and direct approach which not only pushed me to really think outside the box, but gave me a clear plan on how to build ‘my bridge’ between where I am now and where I want to be… A wonderful experience and one I highly recommend, particulary for those who want a coach who has practical experience across a range of disciplines. Highly recommended.”
“Liz has been a pleasure to worth with and integral to my progress as a young start-up CEO. The pressures and pace of the start-up world are tough and having someone like Liz to work with on leadership and personal development has been key. Liz understands these pressures and gives practical guidance and support, helps the individual develop alternatives and solutions to download and recuperate with various different techniques.
Overall, it would have been incredibly difficult to get through my first 6 months working on my own company without Liz’s support and I really look forward to continuing to work with Liz into the future.”
