We typically help progressive organisations, within the growth phase of their journey. We love working with leaders who care about their people, take wellbeing and development seriously and who see their people as equal value to profit.
The types of organisations we work with are Science and Technology, Professional Services, B Corps, Environmental and Sustainability Services, Non-Profit Organisations, Health & Social Care, Education, Community / Social groups and Public Sector.
The insights discovery for me was the most insightful and helps me most in everyday life. Better understanding of myself and how I react to others, helps with putting things in perspective.
Skills learned: Emotional intelligence, how to approach and help resolve a disagreement, how to use action learning to get to the root of a problem, how to use coaching to help colleagues. How to “read” situations and respond to them more appropriately. How to connect more with people and to “step in their shoes” to understand them better. When interacting with people, both internally and externally, to get from them what I need and to support them in performing at their best. To resolve any conflicts that arise through project work. Think positive!
This course (experience) helped me to develop number of skills and become more methodical, efficient, rational, and not least more confident. Those skills are so important at the decision-making stage and leadership. Some parts of the course simply inspired me to look into new directions and find courage and drive to pursue new ideas.
I would recommend Vicky's coaching as either group sessions or 1-2-1. I have attended insightful group sessions led by Vicky to demonstrate coaching techniques and practices, this has enabled me to consider alternative communication techniques, problem solving and being more adaptive in my style. I have also attended 1-2-1 sessions with Vicky where she successfully coached me through (typical) work situations and helped me focus on my personal priorities and ambitions. Thank you Vicky!
Loved working with you Vicky! Challenging issue I thought I had at the beginning of coaching became so simple and solution is just right there. Thank you. Would recommend coaching with Vicky!
Coaching has really helped me to find my focus again. I was plodding through my business, knowing I needed to do something to move up a level from where I was, but not ever finding time to. Vicky helped me sit down, find out where I was, where I wanted to be, and helped me discover the things I need to achieve to get me there. I loved that the coaching wasn't just about my business - it incorporated life coaching as well, and allowed me to identify beliefs I had that were holding me back in both my business and my home life. Over the four sessions I've had so far, I've achieved a lot more than I thought I would both in my business and my personal life. I've booked in for a 'Business MOT' in 6 months, just to reset my goals and re-evaluate where I am. Vicky has a brilliant mix of encouragement, agreement and kicking me into action when I need it! I've had coaching previously, but no one has ever worked as holistically on all aspects as my life as Coaching Harmony - I very highly recommend it!
Vicky was truly excellent at helping me to crystallise my goals and worked with me to plan out a strategy to achieve them. There are things I knew I needed to improve or change, but didn’t have a clear vision on how to do that until Vicky illuminated a path. It turned out that there were also things I wasn’t aware of and Vicky helped to uncover those with her insightful questions and again gave me the tools and confidence to tackle them. I have stepped up a couple of gears at work and am now operating at a more strategic level, thanks to Vicky.
Vicky is great! If you can't see the woods for the trees, she has a way of shining a light on the problem and making you face up to the truth of a situation. Not only that but she is also well equipped to give you strategies to work through those issues. Highly recommended as a business coach.
Vicky is an insightful, patient and incredibly creative business coach. When I first began having sessions with her I was struggling with balancing running my art school and my freelance practice, I was starting to feel like I could not see the trees for the forest or keep my eye on the bigger picture. Through my sessions with Vicky she has helped me to identify opportunities to streamline my business, identify key areas for growth, cut away or learn to delegate the less vital day to day tasks so that I can create the space to analyse and keep track of the bigger picture of my business. Simply put Vicky is fantastic, patient and very insightful and her coaching has made an incredible difference to my livelihood and my stress levels! Can not recommend highly enough.
Coaching Harmony is aptly named because Vicky takes a holistic approach when she coaches you, harmonising many aspects of your life to achieve better balance. She is an insightful, compassionate and natural coach who brings out the best in you. She is highly intuitive and picks up as much on what you do not say, as on all the verbal clues. Vicky quickly instils a level of trust, getting to know the real you. Her style is both encouraging yet challenging and she intuitively knows when to question you a little deeper to help bring you to an answer. She is not afraid to challenge you when a more robust approach is required. Her sessions are well-structured and always action-orientated. She tests that level of commitment to follow-through, which is how she achieves success. I have really valued her support, the new perspective she brings, and the self-belief that she has engendered during our sessions together.
