“With over 10 years of industry experience, I was ready to lead a team of fundraisers but I felt I lacked the management expertise to take my career to a new level. With Kim Taylor’s coaching expertise, I have learned a lot about myself, my leadership style and how others perceive me and my actions. I am now more confident, comfortable in my ability and keen to embrace my new position of leadership.
A key thing I found valuable from the coaching sessions is how important it is to be mindful of both the verbal and non verbal communication used when speaking with colleagues. If not careful, two conflicting messages can be communicated which can lead to tension in the workplace.
Kim was 100% committed to helping me achieve my goals and objectives. Her coaching style involved asking me questions to work through my issues while always listening intently. I found her to be thoughtful, encouraging and trustworthy, which helped when sharing some of those more challenging concerns. Her ability to cut through the noise and to hone in on the real issues was also impressive. I always found Kim to be professional, thoughtful, experienced and real. I would highly recommend her as your Coach.”
