Gillian ́s empathic and positive coaching style, which is paired with a good sense of humour and personal experience, helped me building trust and opening up. Gillian immediately understood the urgency of the situation and provided me with a repertoire of effective tools to reduce my stress level and to work more productively. As soon as this acute situation was under control, we started tackling the actual problems at my work and the re-establishment of my self-confidence.
The central part of our coaching sessions was aimed at finding the true purpose of my life. Gillian ́s powerful coaching skills and her creativity enabled me identifying things and values that matter the most for me. Learning about my key drivers helped me in defining priorities and setting clear goals both for my professional and my personal life. It further allowed me to connect to my true personality and authenticity. As a result, I was able to act with a higher level of confidence and safety, but also with more empathy and positivity.
Through a continuous process of reflection of my own behaviour and of my environment I learned from Gillian how to react in difficult moments at work so that I could stay relaxed and connected to myself, while successfully controlling the situation.
Gillian’s coaching played an integral part in my successful transition to a new work environment that reflects the values, the culture and a development path that is important to me.
In my opinion, Gillian is an exceptionally skilled coach with an outstanding level of creativity and an extremely sharp personal understanding. I am fascinated how she can combine her strong professionalism with her warm and empathic personality to always achieve the best coaching outcomes. Gillian taught me the power of coaching to improve my life, and I am convinced that our sessions will have a sustainable impact on my future.
