Having regular discussions with my executive mentor gave me the time and clarity to work through challenges of change. Mandy brings such a calming yet contemplative way of forcing me to confront obstacles; to work on aspects within my control and to articulate and plan ways to implement what I need to do.
Top sporting athletes continue to have coaches that help sharpen technique, in the same way it pivotal for professionals whether in the private, public or NGO to engage in ongoing coaching to assist with understanding when / why a different approach might be necessary. Thanks Mandy
I have learnt so much about myself and I have been able to challenge myself in ways I have never done so before. I have grown and progressed in ways I did not think were possible. I have not only been surprised at how far I have come, but have also been amazed at the strength and confidence I now have, which continues to build and grow within me. Thank you Michelle for all you have taught me and for all the tools you have provided.
When I started with Mandy I was consumed with what I had not been doing in my role, and how much I needed to improve to be the best I could be. I was comparing myself to others and feeling low in my confidence as a leader. When I finished our sessions, I walked away feeling sure of myself in my leadership and in my contribution to my job, organisation and the community.
I worked with Michelle and our time together has helped me enormously. I am in a headspace now that I never could have imagined when our sessions began; I am so much more kind to and gentle with myself today. I have discovered a lot about the way I am wired, and Michelle’s emphasis on mindfulness has allowed me to develop new coping mechanisms when confronted with anxiety and self-doubt.
