Helen enables leaders to understand the contagion of their emotions and mood across their organisation. The impact they have on people and teams around them AND the strong predictive link to performance.
With over 30 years’ experience working at a senior level in both the UK private and public sectors, Helen has had the privilege to experience, work with and learn from some of the very best leaders in the UK.
Working as an Area Director for 12 years with Nationwide Building Society, while they regularly featured in the Times Top 20 UK employers. It was here that she experienced first-hand the power of genuine employee engagement and how a CEO could affect people at a deeply emotional level for the greater good.
She brings a genuine passion to her coaching and consultancy for organisations and its people to be the very best they can be. Enabling leaders to appreciate and understand themselves better and the true impact they have on those around them.
