My name is Felicity...
I got interested in how our working relationships affected performance, growth and well-being when starting my coach training in 2009. Back then I was working as a senior leader for a FTSE100 company. I already knew that communication was key to the success of a project and team leadership but it was the experience of creating coaching relationships that highlighted I knew my coaching clients of 2 hours better than my team members of 2 years!
Since then I've focused my attention on building relationship expertise and coaching skills to complement my 20 years of small and corporate business experience.
