Coaching Philosophy and Approach
Monica is able to energise others through the development of a collaborative relationship that is supportive yet challenging. She has an ability to ask questions rather than give answers, to empathise rather than direct. Her particular strengths lie in encouraging clients to discover their real needs, to form a clear perspective on issues and to bring insights to problem solving. She believes in assisting her clients to reframe their ways of thinking so as to open up real possibilities for superior performance, personal growth and greatly increased work satisfaction.
Monica has a Master’s degree in Counselling and prior to her executive coaching career she ran her own counselling practice for many years. She also has extensive experience in executive search, recruitment and outplacement.
