My coaching blog

Each month I write a coaching blog with topics varying from coaching tips, ideas on learning & leadership, to random thoughts on things generally. As part of the blog I also give away a photo that can be used as a reflection tool.

What people say about my work as a coach

The coaching Julie offers is highly professional  - and very effective. She challenges people to become the  leaders they are capable of being and they emerge from the experience as more fulfilled individuals. Our organisation has certainly befitted from her input. (Head Rushcliffe School, Nottingham)

Overall this was by far the best continuous professional development exercise that I have taken in the 3 years that I have been here. (Main scale teacher who was significantly under performing and who was coached by Julie Boyd)

By having someone observe me as a leader and reflecting back my behaviours and others’ perceptions of me I have changed many of those behaviours which were having a negative impact on others. By changing those behaviours I feel that I am exemplifying drive, ambition, positivity, confidence, optimism and high morale to a much greater extent. Coaching has enabled me to formulate strategies to cope with negative emotions and negative behaviours in others. Coaching has raised my self esteem and self confidence. Coaching has enabled me to focus on behaviours I wish to further develop. (Principal who was coached by Julie Boyd)

Can I thank you for the work you did with (name removed) last year. I’m completing her Review and it’s striking when you look at the overview of the year how much she gained in confidence in the classroom and as a team leader. We’d been very close to losing her at the end of the previous year, and you certainly helped rescue her, as it were. So many thanks. (Head of Department re. coaching in her department)

I found the [coaching] experience very valuable and would like to thank you for helping me through some challenging situations and dilemmas ……. I have been very impressed with the way you were able to get me to talk and confide in you, given that I didn't know you initially and that I am a private person. (Middle leader & teacher who was coached by Julie Boyd)
