About How I Work…

I am a behaviour change expert, leadership and career coach.  I offer coaching and leadership programmes – both on a 1:1 basis and in groups.

For 1:1 coaching I usually work with clients for a minimum of 6 months which gives them space and time to make sustainable behaviour changes.

I stand for being alongside my clients in their journey, being open hearted and honouring.

I am the coach for you if:

  • You want to transform, propel or step up your leadership.
  • You want to transform your self confidence, self belief and reduce self doubt.
  • You know there is much more to you that your current leadership capacity. You want ‘more’ – to reignite your purpose and passion for your career or role.
  • You are a professional partner or associate in a legal or accountancy firm. You want to be much more comfortable with your own authentic leadership style and how you engage/connect with your team.
  • You are frustrated with your team not stepping up, thinking for themselves and using their initiative.  You are consumed daily by questions and running around endeavouring to fit everything in

I love to work with leaders and managers who want to propel their leadership growth or who want to step-up to a new level in their leadership.  I use my warmth, incisiveness, empathy and openness to provide a ‘fertile ground’ in which my clients explore their capacity and are listened to with an open heart.

I work alongside clients in their growth, sharing my wisdom and empowering them to be free to be the leader they are truly capable of.

My coaching style is open, encouraging and purposeful…drawing on my depth of knowledge, creativity, enthusiasm and personal wisdom.

Inner Confidence Coaching

Inner Confidence Coaching

 

Does your inner voice like to give you a hard time?

 

 

 

Does any of this sound familiar…do you:

  • Regularly hear your negative voice saying you’ll be found out? You are not doing enough?
  • Hold back your comments or real excitement or enthusiasm?
  • Avoid difficult conversations or putting yourself forward?
  • Avoid networking or presenting?

I have many clients who have transformed their self confidence – and sometimes not always consciously!  As someone who has had challenges with this myself I know how limiting it can be to be confident on the outside and less so on the inside.  Enhancing self awareness and inner confidence can significantly transform:

  • Your Impact – reducing the frequency self doubt and increasing your willingness to step through fear and show your true, authentic self
  • Your Career – increase your ability and willingness to put your forward and self acknowledge your achievements
  • Your Partnerships/Relationships – increase your willingness to connect meaningfully with others and be an authentic leader
  • Your Leadership – increase your personal presence, ability to be authentic and capacity to lead from the front in challenging circumstances, with compassion

 

I work with clients for a minimum of 6 months, usually 2 weekly or monthly,  which gives them space and time to make sustainable behaviour changes.

To find out more about how to transform your self confidence please email me: nicci@awareleadership.co.uk or call me on 07817 246930.  OR you can pop a question or comment into my live online chat box!

Is your leadership behaviour serving you well? 

 

 

Does any of this sound familiar…do you:

  • Regularly wonder why your team aren’t proactive and taking initiative?
  • Like to put on your persona, but really you know you are capable of more? Or fed up with the strain of holing up a facade?
  • Have an ongoing frustration with how things are, including members of your team?
  • Avoid leading from the front or embracing the challenges of leading a team?

I have many clients who have changed their behaviour – and now know the difference that self awareness and emotional intelligence makes.  In my own leadership I have made significant and transformative behaviour changes that have meant me being part of and creating projects that I would have never thought possible.  Taking the courageous step to look at and/or being willing to change your behaviour is an empowering and transforming experience.

Behaviour change can significantly transform:

  • Your Impact – removing the behaviours or habits that are no longer serving you
  • Your Career – increasing your capacity and motivation to handle challenges head on
  • Your Partnerships/Relationships – increase your ability to connect meaningfully with purpose and hold clear boundaries
  • Your Leadership – increase your authenticity and self mastery to handle your reactions and emotional state

I work with clients for a minimum of 6-12 months, usually 2 weekly or monthly,  which gives them space and time to make sustainable behaviour changes.

So you have come to the right place if you’re a partner or director in a firm of accountants who wants to propel their inner game and develop their leadership.  Or you may be an associate who wants to move up in your firm.

These days being technically great is all good but the world is changing, clients want more from their accountancy service and staff want greater engagement and purpose.  Being a accountant requires significantly more than just crunching numbers and producing a set of accounts.  More of you is required!

You may…excel in your field, you have all the technical expertise and to date this has carried you through.  You’ve seemingly ‘made it’ technically, your clients appreciate you and yet you still are massively uncomfortable with engaging with your team and leading from the front.  Why can’t you just be head down and get on with the day to day technical stuff?

You’re not sure how to really connect with your team or clients other than to talk business.  You know this is important but it is way out of your comfort zone.  You struggle to connect meaningfully with your team and sometimes clients actually on a human level.  You don’t know where to start to answer or stop the inner critic that is swirling around in your head.  You’re feeling frustrated, under pressure, stressed, confused and certainly sometimes perplexed.

My powerful individual and group coaching programmes will help you give life to your leadership and team.  You will find the strength, motivation, release to be the leader and person you are – not fitting a mould or persona but learning how to connect and grow authentic relationships with your team and clients.

Not for Profit Leaders

So you have come to the right place if you’re a director, head of service or aspiring manager in a not for profit organisation.

You may want to develop your leadership skills, be better at building relationships and partnerships or just plain under pressure looking for a better work/life balance.

 

These days being politically astute and being able to get the job done is great but the world is changing, budgets are tighter and tighter and greater commercial acumen is needed to adapt to a more entrepreneurial marketplace.  Being a not for profit leader requires significantly more than just being able to keep all the plates spinning.  More of you is required!

You get the job done well in your public sector or charitable sphere, you have all the relevant expertise and to date this has carried you through.  You’ve made your way up, your team appreciate you and yet you know you can have much more impact if you reduce that self doubt or are able to engage staff and partners in a more powerful way.

In this arena of austerity, how can you bring teams and others on board into a sometimes ever changing agenda? You can do the usual, but this usually ends up with you working silly hours and still you don’t seem to be making the impact you know you are capable of.  You don’t know where to start to reduce working hours or stop the inner critic that is swirling around in your head.  You’re feeling de-motivated, frustrated, put upon, stressed, confused and certainly pressured.

My powerful individual and group coaching programmes will help you develop vital purpose and personal skills that will give life to your leadership and team.  You will find the passion, motivation, release to be the leader and person you are – not fitting a mould or political persona but developing how to build a powerful purpose and communication techniques that will transform your professional impact.

So you have come to the right place if you’re a partner in a firm of solicitors who wants to propel their inner game and develop their leadership.  Or you may be an associate who wants step up to the next level – or indeed make partner in your firm.

These days being technically great is all good but the world is changing, clients want more from their solicitor and staff want greater engagement and purpose.  Being a solicitor requires significantly more than just knowing your stuff in a specialised area of law.  More of you is required!

You excel in your field, you have all the technical expertise and to date this has carried you through.  You’ve seemingly ‘made it’ technically, your clients appreciate you and yet you still are massively uncomfortable with leading a team and engaging in social chit chat.  Why can’t you just be head down and get on with the day to day business of being a solicitor?

You’re not sure what to do with your team other than get them together once in a while and attempt some motivation.  You can do this, but its alien, uncomfortable and tedious.  You struggle to connect with your team and sometimes clients actually on a human level.  You don’t know where to start to answer or stop the inner critic that is swirling around in your head.  You’re feeling frustrated, put upon, stressed, confused and certainly pressured.

My powerful individual and group coaching programmes will help you develop vital engagement skills and give life to your leadership and team.  You will find the strength, motivation, release to be the leader and person you are – not fitting a mould or persona but learning how to connect and grow authentic relationships with your team and clients.
