About me

Leadership Coach - Middlesbrough, York & Newcastle upon Tyne

I am an Executive and Leadership Coach, NLP Master Practitioner and Trainer. As a coach I believe my role is to support you be the very best version of yourself as both a leader and executive. When you are an authentic leader it is easier to inspire, motivate and influence those around you.

I love meeting new people and find it easy to build rapport and
therefore strong coaching relationships. I am trained listener and use these skills to really hear what is really going on for you.

Developing high performing teams

I have a real passion for developing high performing teams, ensuring that your whole team is engaged and as a result performing at the correct or next level up. With my background of over 20 years as a senior leader in retail I have partnered with executives who are primarily working in a fast paced environment. I support them to achieve long lasting positive change in their behaviours, understand their team dynamics improving motivation and as a direct result performance.

I am an NLP Practitioner and Trainer and I incorporate NLP techniques where appropriate. I support and sustain individuals and teams through change, understanding and appreciating what makes us react differently and using this to harness the power of your whole team.

Improve your confidence

As a coach I am supportive and encouraging although where appropriate I will challenge your thinking to raise your self-awareness, helping you learn what might be holding you back or hindering your success. Coaching will Improve your confidence, increase your gravitas and build your communication skills.

More about Liz:

I worked for Sainsbury's for over 20 years as a Regional Operations Manager based in the North East, Scotland and London. I left to return to my native north east in July 2016. I was one of Sainsbury's in house Master Coaches completing a 9 month programme run by Lane 4 coaching and accredited by Middlesex University. I coached 1-1 and also conducted coaching, resilience, listening skills, and change workshops for store managers and for leaders in the store support centre.

I regularly held listening groups for Directors with colleagues to understand their point of view, taking on board colleague suggestions where possible and improving engagement as a result.

NLP taster weekends

I have studied NLP in France, South Africa and India to maximise my learning and I run NLP taster weekends and Practitioner training. I use clean questions in my coaching to help me understand what is really going on for you, I am also a clean space facilitator.

I love working with people to watch them develop and grow, becoming happier, more successful and better leaders. I believe in continuous learning and am currently completing a Mindfulness for Wellbeing and Peak Performance Course.

Based in Middlesbrough, I cover a wide region including York and Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

I achieved much more from my coaching programme with Liz than I expected. Initially targeting my professional development to enhance my leadership skills, Liz provided an excellent combination of personal insights, tips and tools that really hit the mark each time. Results were rapidly visible when bringing them back into the office arena, both with my individual contribution but also through the combined efforts of my team, who also benefitted from Liz’s fun and helpful phrases that are now widely used amongst us. What I also found invaluable was the deeper levels of personal discovery that her fantastic coaching in a safe environment allowed me to explore and test. The combination of these have enabled me to develop my perspective and objectives for an all-round happier life, for which I will always be grateful for.

Liz was inspirational - I was at a cross-roads in life and not sure about my next step. I wasn’t sure where I wanted to be but had, like most people, my dreams and I wasn’t sure how to make them a reality. Through great coaching and questions I could see clearly the end result and totally inspired, put my house up for sale, sold it and bought another close to my daughter and extended family. Liz helped me to make a dream a reality....... I move very shortly and looking forward to my new life. Brilliant!!' Michelle Jackson Sainsbury's

Liz was a keynote presenter at our national health librarians conference last year, leading the group through a transformational change workshop. Liz engaged her audience by drawing on her extensive business experience, offering us fresh perspectives in a dynamic and highly enjoyable group session. It was the stand out session in our conference as evidenced by the many complimentary comments from delegates.
