The Opportunity

Citibank in partnership with Henley Business School invited Dr Sharon to form part of their executive coaching panel. Dr Sharon was chosen for her reputation as a leading business coach who achieves outstanding results. She was presented to potential coachees who were identified as key talent and high-performers as one of the coaches available to work with them. The aim was to lift the lid of their potential and tap into the depth of their strengths as well as seek out and improve key development areas.

The Solution

Dr Sharon was amongst the most sought-after coaches because of her niche coaching approach that blends executive coaching with Neuro-linguistic programme. Managers who were nominated for the programme, were given 12 coaching sessions with Sharon spanning 12 to 18 months. After the initial chemistry check session, line managers were invited to the second session to offer support and guidance regarding their perception of strengths and development areas. Towards the end of the programme, line managers were again invited to give feedback. Many were so impressed with the results achieved through the coaching that they extended the programme for a further year.

Helped me see that I can handle any situation with which I am challenged and to trust myself!

My experience with Sharon as my coach has been invaluable and positive. Sharon coached me over a 24-month period. I cannot say enough about how much she has helped me both professionally and personally. The best thing about working with Sharon has been her ability to help me see that I have the ability handle any situation with which I am challenged and to trust myself. I made it to Director quicker than I thought I would under her guidance. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to take that next step in their career and personal development!

A positive impact on my performance, as well as my confidence in myself!

​My coaching with Sharon has been extremely beneficial in helping me to challenge myself, particularly in relation to how I view myself from a professional perspective. She has been especially helpful in helping me to navigate a relatively stressful change in roles within my organisation, giving me tools to better identify and manage stress, set boundaries, and identify solutions to specific work-related issues and conflict. Sharon has helped me to be more considered and thoughtful in the way in which I engage with both my direct reports and colleagues throughout the organisation, thereby having a positive impact on my performance, as well as my confidence in myself. Sharon is hugely knowledgeable and provides practical tools and advice to tackle individual issues. She is personable, approachable, and I have benefited so much from working with her.
