business & leadership coaching
business & leadership
Most people are familiar with the term performance coaching, where the required outcomes are guided by the needs of the organisation, with the aim of supporting the client to excel in their role.
Transformational, or Developmental Coaching takes the process a step further, and is a highly individual process, exploring current and past influences from both personal and professional lives that shape your behaviour. I offer one to one coaching to support businesses with leadership development and supporting staff dealing with workplace bullying using this approach.
Transformational coaching within business has the greatest impact when working with leaders:
Owner-managers of businesses
Stepping up into a senior role
New to management
It enables you to define your own views of performance both for yourself, and for your organisation or team. It enables you to develop your perspective, gain greater clarity of thought, improve emotional responsiveness, and become more adaptable and versatile in dealing with more complex situations. You will develop your authenticity and creativity as a leader.
Transformational coaching is also used as an early intervention approach when bullying is identified in the workplace. We assist businesses in taking a different approach to facilitating a positive outcome following a complaint raised regarding allegations of bullying. In addition our approach may be applied to situations where bullying or poor interpersonal relationships are believed to be adversely impacting performance, team and interpersonal dynamics.
The role of the Transformational Coach is to create an environment and space that allows learning to take place, while developing a supportive but challenging relationship with you, the client. Although we will agree an agenda and outcomes at the outset, it is a fluid process to allow for the path to follow a different direction where appropriate, with regular reviews to manage this process.
Every business is different, therefore you may want to create a bespoke coaching programme to suit you, and your team, which may include one to one coaching and leadership programmes. Any of these options can also include equine facilitated coaching.

“Nicki’s approach was really successful in helping to raise awareness and move us forward, both individually and as a team. Being able to communicate with each other, without judgment, allowed us to look at the problems, and we were supported to set achievable goals that we could put into place quickly. It’s been a really effective programme to enable change to take place, and we would definitely work with Nicki again.”

"I made my first appointment with some trepidation. Not really knowing what to expect I found my first coaching session both settling and challenging at the same time as Nicki was very good at both listening and asking considered questions which helped me to explore new paradigms to ongoing challenges both in and outside of work. Through my coaching sessions I have clarified my values, my goals and what I’m committed to both at home and work. I’ve also learnt to appreciate the value of recognising and managing my emotions and energy rather than my time and over thinking things. If you are reading this and wondering whether to take the plunge and contact Nicki my advice would be to go for it. My only regret is I did not do it earlier. Nicki is a professional and charismatic coach with a considered approach to helping people like you and I tell our stories, explore your options, generate new possibilities and shape these into a bespoke plan for ourselves. Nicki is very adept at building rapport and creating with you a coaching environment that works for you. In terms of the future I plan to return to Nicki at least once a year to take stock, review, celebrate and refresh my coaching plan."
