“Tim is an incredibly effective coach. Before meeting Tim, I genuinely struggled with impatience”.

“Regarding Tim, there is a real, tangible benefit in being able to talk freely to someone, who treats you with acceptance and positive regard, about the concerns and difficulties you are experiencing in your workplace”.

“With Tim, I have had opportunity to unpack and explore challenges with a supportive level of questioning and exploring alternative interpretations/ways to approach issues and exceptional modelling on how to coach my own staff members. I have received extremely useful questions regarding my thoughts about exploring new opportunities and how to turn challenges into learning opportunities”.

“Following a coaching session with Tim, I always walk away feeling like I have 10 new questions to explore, ideas to investigate, new approaches to try and new ways of getting more information”.

“Tim has helped me with

* Recognition that I am capable enough to succeed in the role

* Confidence to talk to the Board and other Executives as peers rather than as stakeholders

* Ability to reflect on actions required and implement the necessary change”.
