LEAD IN CONFIDENCE
- “I met this amazing woman at a time of great personal distress and turmoil for me. I found myself in a work environment that was intolerable to me and had concluded that my only option was to walk away and start anew. But I was thoroughly confused about what my next move should be. Paula coached me into an awareness that this may have become a pattern of my working life, and that I could and should address issues I was being faced with, instead of turning my back on them. She told me that my purpose was to “Lead for Change” which helped me to find the courage to speak up about the changes needed in the workplace. The result was sudden and surprising. I was promoted to a Directorship within a month of voicing my concerns. More importantly, though, things have slowly but surely started to change in our organisation. Although we still have a long way to go and it certainly is not easy to transform a business, knowing that I have a role and a purpose in all of it, helps to keep me committed and focussed. Paula’s words remain a guiding force in my work life, even though it has been more than two years since we met. She helped me to realise that the real job of a leader is not about being in charge, it is about taking care of those in your charge. I would not hesitate to recommend Paula to an Executive or anyone who’s finding themselves stuck or in a transition stage, whatever it may be.”
“Paula’s coaching has been instrumental in helping me see that I need to strengthen myself and work on personal development rather than wallowing in the misery of a failed relationship. Her patience, kindness, insight, and practical recommendations have assisted me to finally believe that there is a future after divorce.”
“When I found myself heading up an NGO with little previous experience, Paula helped me develop a belief in myself, necessary to run a successful organization. Not an easy task. I will forever be grateful for the self development that took place and changed my life.”
“I needed to discover that things in life are not as difficult as they seem if you take responsibility and action to change the way you look at things. Self Care and self compassion were not a words I was familiar with. That has changed, I now take time to appreciate my worth and acknowledge the positive things about myself and those around me. I have learnt to be present and to enjoy the good things I have going on in my life. She is an amazing coach. I can’t even explain how much she has helped me grow.”
“My coaching journey with Paula began where I was at a cross roads career wise, this had an effect on my personal, spiritual and mental capacity.
My objectives were to excel and reach the potential that my peers, friends and loved ones saw in me. Completing the process was the the greatest achievement. I gained the ability to grow and learn, even when I stumble…
You know life coaches are a necessity especially when they’re as good as Paula Brown.”
