coaching services

What do I offer organisations?

I work closely with your Talent and Leadership teams to create bespoke leadership development programmes and coaching that align with your company values and expected leadership behaviours.

Whether you’re looking to develop emerging talent, or senior leaders – I can help leaders transition from individual contributor to manager, or operational manager to strategic leader. This enables them to integrate into their new role quickly, delivering their full performance and potential.

Topics can include, but are not limited to:

working in partnership to create a high performing, engaged workplace culture

I’m a qualified Executive Coach, holding a Practitioner Diploma in Executive Coaching with AoEC. This programme has been accredited by the main internationally recognised coaching bodies – being one of the few triple accredited programmes worldwide – the International Coaching Federation (ICF), European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC) and the Association for Coaching (AC).

Having successfully led a Senior Management Team, 5 multi-functional departments and many large-scale business transformation projects I’m experienced in helping people set powerful goals, handle change and break through personal barriers to achieve the changes in behaviour that they want.

My aim is to help leaders deal with the emotions of overwhelm and self doubt that are often experienced during times of change, or career transition.

Prior to starting my coaching business I spent over 14 years as a senior business leader. I’m  Chair of Trustees for an Outplacement charity and have an ILM Level 7 Award in Strategic leadership. I’m passionate about delivering social value so I share Coach The Difference profits with Transitions UK, to provide mentors for young people facing disadvantage. This can support your Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy.

My style is described by clients as calm, intuitive, professional and transformational. I offer a wide range of coaching programs and services from individual coaching to workshops, mentoring and keynote speeches.

"Debbie has been working with me for about 6 months now, as I transitioned into a new and challenging role. She helps give me that time out once a month to really think about some of the areas I'm struggling with, but also to reflect on my achievements."

"Debbie was extremely professional, demonstrated good communication and matched her style to my needs. She effectively got me to recognise my situation, what I have achieved and learnt, and how to find a way forward. At the end of the session I had an action plan and clarity. I would highly recommend "Coach the Difference" if you are stuck and need someone to take the burden from you to give you a moment to stand back to reflect and review. With her help you, and your willingness, you will find a way forward. Good luck."
