Aspire - Leadership for the future

Executive, career and life coaching for women managers and leaders

For more information on format and costs, contact us here.  We are happy to explore possibilities with you in a no obligation, confidential conversation to learn more about your objectives and needs and answer your questions in more detail.

Our one-to-one phone coaching approach has its background in business and not for profits and is designed to help develop one’s confidence, leadership, management (including self-management), presentation and communication skills. We also have a depth of experience working with CEOs, business owners and senior management executives. We are committed to the advancement and empowerment of women and to help them to navigate and negotiate with the C-suite and potentially male dominated environments.

The inspirational Aspire coaching team have worked with thousands of individuals, small businesses and global companies over the past 17 years and will personalise a coaching programme for you depending on your unique business and personal goals, challenges and the results you need. Example coaching areas include:

Leadership development:

  • Stepping up your leadership and developing your skills and capability as a purpose and results driven leader in your organisation.
  • Increasing your resilience, practical 'how to' management strategies, overcoming challenges and staying on track to achieve outstanding results.
  • Empowering and developing the skills of key people in your team and organisation.

"The 121 coaching sessions were invaluable and inspirational. Not only did it really challenge my thinking and push me to question the ways I do things but she has really helped my thinking in my role as Talent Strategy Director and how to better influence people to make things happen… I am confident this coaching has helped lead me to a recent appointment on the Leadership Team. Thank you for your help and support last year in our coaching sessions." - Aimee Welsh, Talent Strategy Director, Join the Dots

Career and life planning:

  • Definition and clarity on your career and life goals.
  • Creating a plan and getting support and accountability to achieve your aspirations.
  • Encouragement, inspiration and resources to overcome challenges and make your dreams happen.

“Thank you. I woke up this morning buzzing, feeling positive and ready for the day ahead. I have a sense of clarity about the truth of my life and a picture of how I want it to be. Please, for all the women out there who doubt themselves, who are hung up about not fitting the cookie-cutter leader shape, keep doing this.” - Kirsten Tedder, Regional Finance Director – Christie's International

Business start up and growth:

  • Visioning and then creating the business you know you have in you.
  • Overcoming fears to make your business happen and achieve outstanding results.
  • Taking your business to the next level in terms of profits, people focus and contribution to community.

"Inspired me to vision and think big, to have confidence in my own personal skills and attributes, and to reach out to others to make things happen. A hands-on, honest and down to earth approach." – Rachel Flower, Director, Serenwood Ltd

Building Blocks for the Girls

We have to believe inside that we deserve to be where we are, and to achieve what we have achieved. But we also have to understand that we cannot hold a belief that society owes us anything and instead make our own destinies, and likewise complain that nothing will ever change without understanding that we can control our own reality.
