Welcome to Braveologist!
I deliver coaching and training to develop braver, happier people.
My work is about helping individuals, groups and organisations identify the things holding them back or keeping them blocked, so they can move forward, and thrive.
I do this by facilitating conversations that go straight to the depths of the issue, reclaiming the power tied up in assumptions, secrets, awkward or uncomfortable feelings and unvoiced desires.
I do this because I love that moment when purpose becomes clear, presence and aliveness abound, people feel powerful together, and relationships are underpinned by open, honest, courageous communication and deep trust. It's the kind of world I want to live in, and the way I want work and workplaces to feel.
As individual humans - when we give ourselves permission to live the life we want to live, overcome self-doubt and insecurities, start paying attention to what feels good and what doesn't and start accessing our inner wisdom and the courage to act on it, we make our world a better place - and lift those around us who will feel the difference.
As coaches, when we show up like this, we create a powerful, open space with our clients, underpinned by deep trust and partnership. These are the conditions necessary for psychological safety, impact and long-lasting change.
As employees or as managers, we can know that when people are supported to show up like this in the workplace, they are more satisfied, have higher commitment, perform better and stay longer because as humans we tend to want to enjoy our work, belong where we feel valued, and contribute.
If you are a leader, you will have more impact where you give yourself permission to bring warmth, authenticity and sometimes-not-knowing to your people. There is power in learning to deal with the discomfort that comes with uncertainty and risk in your leadership - no more avoiding it altogether because you don't know how.
