I have become a lot more self-aware

This course was amazing for me, I am only new to the role of managing people so this was great to gain some clarity on the best approach for coaching. 
I have become a lot more self-aware and have realised I need to make a few changes first. Annette you are a gun!

Meet your facilitator Annette Gray

After 30 years of facilitating adult learning and over 23 years of coaching and mentoring, I know what works to lead with a positive impact.

The value of great leadership really became apparent to me when I worked for someone who I realised was the best role model of how to lead. By asking for and respecting input, by collaborating rather than directing, and by supporting not controlling, my strengths were acknowledged, nurtured and enhanced. I felt stretched, positively challenged and fulfilled ‚Ästand I performed at my best.

Discovering the concept of ‚Äėsolution focus‚Äô 12 years ago has had a strong influence on how I view the world, how I coach people and how I train people to be coach-like.

The essence is that for people to change, it’s not about understanding the problem they present with, it’s about finding out when the problem happens less, what it is they want instead of the problem, and what previous success they can draw on to deal with the problem. Talking about solutions helps to create solutions.

My passion is to continue to create great leaders and mentors, who really know how to do their role well, which in turn will create thriving workplaces. I believe we‚Äôre in a time of real transition ‚Äď working from home is a gamechanger ‚Äď and we need a different style of leadership for the future.

Progressive companies are realising that, to retain employees, they need to upskill their leaders and mentors. Now is the time to take the opportunity to do ‚Äėwork‚Äô differently and to be open and respectful.

Just what we needed learning!

Annette, thank you for what was a brilliant day of energetic, engaging, high quality, just what we needed learning!
The staff were won over by you and what you were teaching us and were eager to try it out with their staff.
