Founded on values of integrity, authenticity, commitment, compassion, and courage, and based in Central London, Rosie is currently coaching successful leaders around the world. Her coaching frees leaders from internal conflict and empowers them to take simple steps to change habitual behaviours, thus creating new and lasting impact on those individuals as well as their organisations as they become more effective at what they do, and how they do it.
In her coaching, Rosie draws on her experience as a remarkably successful and highly skilled Mediator, facilitating the resolution of conflict in seemingly intractable disputes with individuals in organisations, supporting them to find their own solutions, bringing lasting resolution. She also draws on her professional background in transformative performance in senior leadership in London state schools, over two decades. Rosie specialises in working with people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). This usually means that more time is allocated to any coaching process in order to make ‘reasonable adjustments.’
Agile Coaching, one of the approaches Rosie employs, is a pragmatic business approach to coaching individuals or teams, which is underpinned by an in-depth psychological approach, depending on the person and the context. Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, and relational coaching methodology form the basis of this, which involves raising awareness to stimulate change. The power of coaching has enabled them to develop their skills and change attitudes and behaviours, and as the gap has closed between their potential and their current state, internal conflict has been untangled, creating a field of possibilities going forward.
