Aileen is an excellent executive coach and I would strongly recommend her, particularly for those moving into new and challenging senior roles as I was when I started with her. She coached me on how to manage my new peers and how to not only present as my best self but get the best out of my peers also. She couples practical business experience with a range of approaches and models to support and challenge you to help you achieve your goals. She fosters a sense of energy and focus which drives high levels of achievement in a short space of time. She asks the right questions which help you to focus, prioritise and find meaningful solutions. The concept of “sitting with it” has had a huge impact on my decision making process. I am a better leader today because of the coaching I received from Aileen.
