Deni’s corporate experience and insightful understanding of people, through neuroscience and profiling, enables her coachees to make realistic, sustainable changes. She specialises in coachees whose behaviours and attitudes are impacting their own performance or self-belief and that of others. She also coaches leaders to appreciate the nuances of executive presence and style required at senior levels, as well as navigating change and managing relationships.
Overall, Deni is passionate about having truly purposeful conversations that enable coachees to make a real difference in their roles and life. She works at all levels: SVP – VP – Depᵗ Head – Team Leader – Individual Contributor.
Coachees say that Deni …
… makes a difference and they learn a lot about themselves, the situation and actions they could take: “conversations that lead to great results.”
… understands and is compassionate about where they are coming from so that they feel respected and listened to.
… has patience and gives reassurance thus they find it easy and comfortable to have an open dialogue and honest reflection with her.
… has a real depth of knowledge and is insightful as to what is happening – getting to the real discussions and focusing the conversation, such that “the lights come on.”
… is encouragingly thought-provoking and challenging in a supportive way to raise awareness: “has enthusiastic energy for them.”
… is practical and pragmatic: puts things in perspective in a matter-of-fact way with grounded thoughts and advice.
An eclectic coach:
Eclectic coaches draw upon various tools, techniques and models within their coaching practice, although they are skilful and thoughtful in their choice of interventions. Eclectic coaches regularly expose themselves to different coaching approaches and other related fields in order to gain a wider perspective and a broader depth of knowledge. It is through this depth of understanding and practice that enables the eclectic coach to seamlessly weave their collection of knowledge and skills together in the service of their coachee’s needs.
Additionally, Deni’s understanding of pertinent aspects of applied neuroscience and McClelland’s social motives, enables her to be appreciative of a coachee’s potential underlying neurobiological and motivational drivers and how they influence behaviour and outcomes. This also allows her to share and work with these insights in an explanatory way that coachees find informative, thought-provoking and actionable.
