Strategically Managing Change 

Managing Change is an important subject at a time when organisations have to introduce new processes, and modify old processes, in order to remain competitive. The impact of frequent change, or infrequent but significant change, on people can often be de-motivating and negative. It doesn't have to be though. This workshop is designed to help understand how and why people react to change. The more we understand people, the better we can implement change initiatives, maintain productivity, and maximise the effectiveness of everyone involved.

This is a particularly relevant topic now that business is responding to the impact of Covid and re-visiting their goals and strategic plans.

She spends the rest of her time coaching Executives on a 1:1 basis. As a Psychologist Sue has developed a number of skills, principally, observation and analysis of human behavioural patterns and throughout the course of her work she enables people to increase self-esteem and confidence by removing negative thoughts and changing long-held damaging self-belief traits. Her style is engaging, motivating, sensitive and down-to-earth. Her refreshing approach and techniques are key to the process of the support she gives to people. Sue helps individuals and businesses become more productive, purposeful, successful and profitable.

She also runs a private practice in central London and Surrey where she lives.  It is a private and confidential service that helps people when they are particularly stressed, unhappy or lack the tools from their own experience to remedy a situation. Used to dealing with very private people who want their privacy protected, this is not a counselling service, but a shorter method that delivers results fast to bring about change. Situations Sue has helped with, include direct reports who are struggling with a lack of Emotional Intelligence or have low self-esteem; anger management at any level of the organisation, relationship difficulties and handling painful experiences in the past.
