A big eye opener for me was how people perceive me versus how I am. That has changed. Without Ros’s support, it would have taken a long long time. I certainly wasn’t expecting a phonecall asking me to apply for a state manager position. Everything is due to Ros.
It takes a lot for me to be able to discuss my personal, professional development with somebody, talking about my future. That takes a lot of courage from me, but Ros made that very easy for me. She definitely understands what my needs are, what I wanted from this. She always starts a session with: ‘What would you like to talk about today?’. So she gives me a platform to come up with the goods. She has a good balance between what my present needs are, and what my future needs will be. She is looking at the next step and where I’m going. How I’m able to self-direct to get to where I want to. She challenged me on a few things, which I enjoyed and appreciated. She gave me a different perspective on my point of view.
There were a few specific work issues I wanted guidance with, and I wanted to see what I could do to improve myself at work and allow for opportunities for career progression. And that’s where I was so amazed by Ros – her breadth of experience as a coach.
I am beyond thrilled with the outcomes I got. She has instilled confidence in myself and my abilities, which is really what I needed. Her ideas, creative ability, and way she honed in on me as a person and what would work for me were fantastic.
I think Ros could coach anyone, to be honest. She is amazing. She has that ability to work out what’s right for you, and how to ask the right questions. Working with Ros over the last 6 months has been phenomenal. I’d recommend her to anyone who’s looking for coaching, because she can address anything!
Through working with Ros I have been able to learn and understand much more about myself and how I operate, but also how that impacts on others (positively and negatively) as well as how I can make changes to get the best out of myself and also my team. In what has been a challenging year for me, it has been a blessing to have an independent sounding board who I can talk to about issues and situations and how best to manage them. While at times I feel a bit indulgent spending the time and money on myself I have found my sessions with Ros to be invaluable as they have allowed me to take stock of where I’m at, how I got here and what comes next. My coaching sessions with Ros have been an informative, challenging, entertaining and rewarding experience for me
