Less overwhelm, increase focus & clarity, communicate better & get results

For businesses (micro & SME)

It’s a cliche, I know, but do you feel you spend your time working in the business not on it? What would happen if you weren’t in the business? Would it fall apart, or could it continue successfully?

How are your delegating skills, managing people and communicating? How profitable is your business? Would you benefit from working with an experienced business coach / mentor who can hold you accountable and share insights to make it all a lot less stressful? I am an experienced business director and have worked with many businesses, learning about what works and what doesn’t.

For leaders and managers

Are you a CEO who wants to think more strategically? Would it help to be more confident in your communication with the board and investors? Do you avoid the more challenging conversations? Do you suffer from imposter syndrome? Have you lost your mojo? Your initial enthusiasm might have waned and be affecting others.

You may have other executives who could do with some focus, some honing of managerial skills. Strengthening the team around you can make a huge difference.

It can be a lonely place when you’re in charge and making sense of your vision and how to deliver it can be a lot easier with a coach to support and challenge you with ideas and techniques. I have worked with government, in education, retail, tech, finance, legal, creative and learned so much about the challenges and how to overcome.

For individuals who feel stuck or frustrated

You may feel there’s more to life than what’s going on right now. Life is short and accelerating change and decision making as well as increasing self esteem and regaining a positive outlook can transform it all.

You may want to find ways of finding your current job and life more enjoyable or want to set up a freelance business and become self employed. I can help you with this.

She is hugely skilful and able to ask insightful questions to help bring clarity of thought to complex business issues and relationships. This clarity of thought has enabled focused actions on my part, which have in turn led to amazing business results.

Coaching is a catalyst

Einstein said ‘insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results‘ and we’ve all been there. Challenging yourself to dip your toe in, step out of your comfort zone, whatever you want to call it, can transform things. A coaching conversation is non judgmental and shines a light on beliefs, behaviours, vision and ways of finding that clarity and confidence that makes us thrive.

Have you got questions about working with a coach?

You might want to know who I’ve worked with (CEOs, Managers, Business Owners as well as individuals seeking career change), the experience I have (over ten years as a coach, and I have plenty of business experience as founding director of Papadeli and Jones and Modha amongst others) , where I trained as a coach and how it works. You can read a bit more about me here and here’s some information about what it’s like working with a coach. To find out more, email me so we can set up a call, or give me a ring 07785 996917.

I would highly recommend Catrin to all business leaders, being a CEO of a business can be a lonely role, sometimes we all need someone to talk to, share ideas, challenges, thoughts and concerns in a confidential environment. I attended regular sessions with Catrin over a period of 12 months and she had such a positive impact on me both as a leader and on my mental well-being. I have since appointed Catrin to work with other senior managers at Vista and she has delivered transformational results.

Training, facilitation and workshops for Managers & teams

As you can imagine, it’s fascinating gaining insight into people’s thoughts, what works, what doesn’t, their frustrations, how they see the world. Sharing tools and techniques on how to overcome challenges during coaching sessions also has helped me see what people find useful.

This unique insight has enabled me to create workshops that are based on real life scenarios, struggles, ideas, experiences. I have run workshops for many businesses and organisations, including Academi Wales (the Welsh government’s leadership development arm), the UK & Welsh governments, education, sustainability consultancies, banking & finance, tech, creative agencies and professional service companies.

Workshops for staff & managers

  • difficult conversations and conflict
  • managing people
  • coaching approaches and skills
  • delegation & boundaries
  • decision making
  • listening and communication
  • entrepreneurial thinking and growth

I can run workshops on Zoom or face to face. I work hard to make them interesting and relevant and above all enjoyable, as we’re so much more likely to want to learn if we’re enjoying it! Get in touch to find out more.
