When I met Rebecca, I had not worked at a senior level in a university for several years. Her coaching helped me to navigate decision making processes in the university environment. It also helped me to reflect on my management and leadership style. We talked through constructively the areas which I was finding most tricky and worked through immediate next steps, without getting overwhelmed by the scale of the task I was facing in a new role. The coaching was invaluable in getting to grips with that role, managing challenging situations and increasing my confidence to make decisions. I was also practicing as a coach at the time and have continued to do so. I continue to draw upon the work I did with Rebecca to improve my own coaching practice.
