Most people already have everything they need to thrive in their jobs, achieve their goals, and improve their performance – they just don’t know how to access it yet. At Think With Jude, my role is to create an environment where people can change the conversations they’re having with themselves and the people around them.
When I work with teams who are struggling to gel, people who feel stuck, frustrated, and resigned, or groups within an organisation that would benefit from understanding each other better, it’s incredible to see how much can change through a single conversation.
They begin to see things differently. They understand how much influence they have. They gain confidence. And the knock-on effects are huge – increased self-awareness to better interactions with others, a stronger pipeline of diverse talent, and increased people retention. Although the experience of coaching is individual, its impacts are felt far more widely.
I’m a Kiwi (New Zealander) who combines an antipodean attitude with over a decade of experience living and working in the UK. After nine years coaching internally at Deloitte here in London, I set out as an independent coach in 2019 with a mission to help individuals and teams thrive.
We all have unconscious thoughts that influence the way we interact – or react – in certain situations. In bringing an impartial ear, a healthy dose of challenge, and the energy needed to build momentum, coaching empowers people to overcome what’s keeping them stuck and gets them closer to their potential.
