leadership training and developement At the heart of whatever you do

Space, opportunity and time are three key ingredients that, when we have them for ourselves, a spark is ignited and we bring together a knowing mind and a wise heart.

What greater playing field to becoming who we may be? If not now, when?

Space, where you can do some of your best thinking. Opportunity, to connect to a greater resourcefulness within yourself. Time, for stepping away from the bustle of the everyday and sharpen your focus on what is really important.

I am passionate about the gift that coaching can bring to individuals and organisations to help them flourish. So many times I come away from a piece of work excited at seeing someone travel from an 'is this possible' mindset to an 'I've done it' result. Sustaining meaningful change aligned with insight and imagination is at the heart of my coaching practice.

I can honestly say it has been the best personalised leadership programme that I have been involved with. Karyn was able to quickly grasp the context of my position, was challenging and indeed challenged assumptions! She made me think, reflect and look at issues in a different way whilst ensuring I owned the problem or situation. I felt that whilst my College was succeeding and moving with real pace, it was also entering a new phase of its life cycle and leadership behaviour has to be agile as a result. Karyn's sessions really brought this to the fore; she works in a highly professional and confidential manner and her obvious expertise has allowed me to experience real personal and professional growth
