Seeing the woods through the trees

About Me

My name is Sue Winton, I am a fully qualified, accredited coach.

I love connecting with people and accompanying them on their journey’s at different points in their lives.  These may be connected to work or outside of the workplace.

In the workplace, I generally work with leaders who have challenging projects, teams to drive and changes to implement. Leaders who have competing priorities, problems to solve and who may need to have difficult and challenging conversations with others.  We focus on what is going to make the biggest difference, experiment with alternatives, practice new ways forward and create a more productive and sustainable future.

Outside of work I meet with people who want a safe and private space to think things through, to unload, to explore different possibilities, share future aspirations. 

I love the outdoors, connecting with nature and admiring the beauty all around us.  We are able to use this in our coaching engagements to help free your mind and see things from new perspectives if you want to experience something different.

A coaching approach works

Leadership has its challenges and opportunities. Coaching can provide positive channels to effect change in the way we think and manage our actions and ultimately, our desired outcomes. Through coaching, you can positively change your leadership style and explore your leadership potential.

Effective Leadership is personal and often depends more on the use of ‘soft’ skills. It requires an understanding of:

  • •Who you are
  • What your stand for
  • How you communicate and collaborate

Coaching helps individuals and teams to recognise and use to greatest effect, the skills and knowledge already in their possession. Great coaching leads to an increase in:

  • •Self-awareness •
  • Self-confidence •
  • Self-motivation •
  • Self-belief

• Self-determination

Through coaching each person can learn to recognise and use the skills and knowledge they already possess, finding excellence in themselves and others. Blind spots may be uncovered, patterns highlighted and underlying habits revealed.  All of which may be explored and decisions taken about where and what may follow.
