I earned my stripes (or gathered my scars!) working my way up through project and programme management routes, using PRINCE2 & MSP methodologies. Just when I was starting to flirt with the idea of programme directorship, I was presented with an opportunity to experiment with scrum – that’s when the agile bug bit me. Achieving the mindset shift from traditional waterfall ways of working made me fall passionately back in love with my career again. I threw myself into studying, moving up through the Scrum Master path into Enterprise Agile Coaching then expanding my knowledge & capabilities in psychological coaching. My dynamic combination of being an extensively qualified Agile Specialist & a Certified Professional Coach, coupled with a unique ability to incisively get to the heart of what’s going on, puts me in a great position to help leaders & teams in agile environments to thrive. I now specialise in coaching leaders to enhance their leadership agility when working with teams delivering organisational & transformational change, as well as coaching teams & individuals to help them embrace more collaborative & empowered ways of working.
