Perfect for gaining a fresh perspective

Some clients benefit from being taken out of their typical daily work environment and find inspiration by being in nature. Studies have shown the positive and tangible effects of nature on clearing the mind, refocussing our thoughts, and acting as a catalyst for change.

Outdoor Coaching takes the session to whichever environment best suits you – walking in the countryside, by the beach, or anywhere outside the normal setting – and allows the change of scenery to inspire self-awareness and natural progress.

I had a particularly difficult challenge to face, and stepping outside the usual work environment inspired me to think differently and find a fresh approach

Career Coaching for individuals

Career coaching can rekindle the passion for your work, put you back in the driving seat of your career, and prepare you for interviews, presentations, team leadership and more.

According to research, it takes 6 months for senior level recruits to get fully up to speed in their new roles. By hiring a transition coach during the first 100 days, that time can be halved. Your new executive can make a positive impact more quickly.

The programme is customised to the individual. It begins with a discovery meeting, followed by 4 one-to-one sessions over the first 3 months.

Your senior recruit receives valuable support as they navigate the environment, meet fresh challenges and settle into your company culture. The programme consolidates your investment in the new hire, makes them feel valued, and maximises their chances of success.

Coaching beyond the 100 days is available, for more information and details on how this works:

The Power Hour is dedicated to helping clients declutter and get into a winning mindset before an important meeting. It’s a time to organise thoughts, cement ideas, and narrow down outcome objectives to the most critical focus.

This 60-minute coaching session before an important career event is delivered close to an event. Because it is scheduled outside of the usual coaching structure, it is designed to be dynamic, agile, and needs-based. This type of coaching has proven to be transformational for my clients’ most important events helping them create the influence they had visualized for themselves from the outset.

“Yvette delivered a virtual MBTI session to our Strategy Team in the US. It was a huge success!

In organisations with a coaching culture, the benefits filter down to all — so this programme is designed to equip your leaders with coaching skills.

They discover how to nurture, inspire and empower others to become the best they can be.

We look at a leader’s 5 essential roles — expert, manager, leader, mentor, coach — how to switch between them, and when to focus on the role of coach.

Using real-life scenarios, the programme helps leaders develop the art of active listening and skilful questioning. They learn to use the GROW model to pinpoint, unlock and harness potential within a team.  

As a leader, you may spend too much time `doing’ — providing answers, solving problems. On this program, you discover how to enable others to take ownership of obstacles, and the means to overcome them.  

During practical exercises, you gain insights into your own leadership style. You also get the chance to practise your new skills and receive constructive feedback.

Back in the workplace, you can put your coaching skills into practice straight away. Team members will feel valued and become more accountable, leaving you free to focus on strategy and innovation. For your organisation, productivity rises in tandem with your reputation as a go-to employer.

“This course added real  value to our leadership  team, and I would highly  recommend it to any leader  with people managers.”

 Emma Maslen,
Managing Director UK & I Enterprise SAP/Concur

Assertiveness is the confident, positive and empathetic voice used to express yourself clearly in situations where you want to be heard. In many ways it's the foundation of respectful professional relationships. 

Lack of assertiveness can lead to stress, and it may even limit your career progression. Assertive behaviour, on the other hand, increases your impact and influence at work.

In this workshop, you discover how to communicate your feelings, opinions and needs whilst retaining the goodwill and respect of your colleagues.

We explore the differences between aggressive, passive and assertive behaviour — and you’ll gain insight into your own communication style. You learn how to identify your own needs and set boundaries; how to recognise limiting thoughts; how to overcome barriers and break patterns.

If you’ve ever said `yes’ when you mean `no’, or not spoken up when you have something to say, this workshop will be transformative. Equally, if you sometimes come across as too heavy-handed, you’ll discover how to assert your rights whilst respecting the feelings, beliefs and rights of others.

This workshop is an opportunity to try out assertive skills in a safe environment. You can practise the language and phrases which help frame future conversations — even difficult conversations — and learn non-verbal techniques which reduce stress, drama and conflict.  

You can expect to leave with confidence in your communication abilities, excited about putting your newly acquired skills into practice.

The workshop usually takes place with a small group to create an open, trusting environment.

An excellent workshop on fine- tuning your communication skills.  It really defines how to address other professionals in a way that enables connection, influence and buy- in.
Yvette created a fun format and kept everyone engaged and on their toes! She is one of the best facilitators I’ve worked with – and I’ve worked with a lot in my 25 years in the business.”

Senior Director, NorthEast Region Security Leader – Avanade

Imposter syndrome is a topic that regularly comes up in coaching conversations and often emerges during periods of growth and change.

Common amongst senior leaders, ‘Imposter Syndrome’ describes the difficulty that many high-achieving individuals face in recognising, valuing and owning their success.

If you’ve ever felt like a ‘fraud’, lucky to have reached where you are or feel you’re not as well qualified as others think you are, then this workshop is for you. You will benefit from Yvette’s experiences of working with industry leaders as she reveals ways you can increase your leadership impact and gives you the resources needed to achieve this.

You will leave with powerful and proven techniques you can use to overcome this, believe in your value and ultimately remove this barrier – enabling you to progress your own career even further and enjoy continued growth.

Please note: This workshop is ideally run with a small group where a trusted environment can be created.

“I had the pleasure of joining a breakfast workshop led by Yvette on ‘Imposter Syndrome’- It’s something most people will experience in their career. Together with 10 inspiring women we unpacked what this meant and left the workshop with our personal prescription of ‘Imposter Busters!’ “

We all experience setbacks. However, we have a choice in how we respond to them. That choice is determined by mindset — whether we lean towards a fixed mindset, or a growth mindset.

People with a fixed mindset often shy away from risk. They generally prefer to stay in their comfort zone, avoiding effort and perseverance because it reduces the risk of failure. They sit still, while others fearlessly grasp opportunities and move forward.

For those with a growth mindset, setbacks are an opportunity to evolve and learn. They embrace challenges, see effort as the reward, and failure as inspiration to succeed. It’s the difference between `I don’t know’ and `I don’t know yet’. 

Most of us are a mix of both, but if you’ve found yourself saying, ‘I can’t do that’, or ‘That’s not my strength’, you’ve already experienced a fixed mindset.


In this interactive workshop, you’ll discover which mindset influences your decision-making. 

If a fixed mindset is capping your potential, I help you turn it around and transform your thinking. With a growth mindset, you give yourself the chance to succeed. You open the door to new experiences and life-changing opportunities.    

Yvette delivered an inspirational 1 hour workshop to 35 members across our Nordic territory. It really helped the team to bond, and challenged our thinking on how to support each other and approach our business with a growth mindset. We still refer to this session today!
