The topics circulated around how I am happier at work, how I deal with difficult situations and people, how I am a good leader and what I want to get out of work. Gill always surprises me with trying out new things, tools, ways of approaching a specific topic. It was sometimes very playful and sometimes really deep and also hard work. Gill always remained positive and sensitive, asked many questions and asked me to get active. Somehow she always managed to help me getting insights and planned actions within the planned time. I mostly walked out of a coaching session with a clear view about what I do next and how, and full of energy and motivation to do it. I was more enthusiastic, energized and interested at work and therefore more happy and successful. My time investment paid off very well and my employer carried the costs, also realizing the benefit.
Specifically, I could better sort out conflicts, facilitate collaboration where it was difficult, take my team to higher levels of sharing vision and values, and deal with my boss’s boss and other people who drove me crazy. As a consequence, I was also happier and more resilient in my private life and could be a bigger help to my husband when he needed it most.
