Coaching Skills for Managers

Stress Management and Resilience

Developing Supervisory Management Skills

I offer 1-2-1 stress management and resilience coaching either locally to Aberdeen or online

I am passionate about supporting people in developing personal effectiveness via appropriate use of behaviours that promote good working relationships and workplace productivity and positive mental health.

As a management consultant, trainer, and coach most of my work involves facilitating teams and individuals to examine their personal effectiveness via interactive workshops and 1-2-1 feedback.

I trained as a stress management practitioner over 20 years ago and have been a member of ISMA since then. As the years progressed, I continued to incorporate my stress management training into my daily life as a manager.

I use tools appropriate to client needs but most of my areas of work are of a cognitive behavioural approach.

My passion for coaching has grown over the years as I have seen managers struggle to engage with their teams due to a lack of personal awareness or training. Compliance training is vital, but without core people skills managers often fail to get the most out of themselves and their teams.

My personal strengths include getting individuals to undertake activities that challenge them, to look at their preferred behaviours, and set concrete development plans to develop personal effectiveness, reduce stress and develop personal resilience.

I have spent much of my career working within the oil & gas industry. I began in a technical role as a research drilling engineer but subsequently developed skills in people management, progressing to working as a global training and competence manager for a drilling company. I currently work with clients from multiple industry sectors including oil and gas, the NHS, local authorities, food processing and the third sector.

Overall, I am committed to developing managers to deliver business results in a way that values all staff and promotes inclusion and reduction of workplace conflict and stress.

I offer business courses in Scotland and I am based in Aberdeen however I am willing to travel

My client base is primarily working with individuals or businesses looking to raise awareness and develop skill in how to reduce stress and develop personal resilience.

I offer short courses from half-day awareness sessions to 2-day courses to build managers skills in carrying out stress risk assessments and gaining understanding in producing workplace strategies to address their specific issues.

Having been made redundant 5 times in my career I am passionate about supporting people in achieving career goals and developing resilience.
