✺ “In late 2016 I was looking for a coach to help me improve personally and professionally as I was unsure of the next step on my career and felt less confident as a result of it – this was when I found Francoise and she started coaching me.
Françoise is a fantastic coach and a great listener that helps you find your path -throughout this journey I have felt my confidence improving and my goals becoming clearer.
I find Françoise to be great at helping you understand the wider picture, making you think positively and create a step-by-step plan to achieve your goals.
I can definitely recommend Françoise as a coach.” Patricia Nunes
✺ “Françoise has been coaching me – both within a professional and a personal capacity – for a few years now and throughout various changes and challenges in both my professional and personal life.
Françoise is effortless to work with and our sessions bring me an instant sense of resolve and I quickly feel more grounded and focused as a result too.
For me, a Coach is not solely effective based on professional qualifications but, as importantly, based on their ability to connect with those that they are coaching. Françoise’s style and approach would compliment all individuals – she has a strong sense of self and is incredibly perceptive so seems to adapt her coaching style with ease and according to the individual and situation.
It is clear that Françoise genuinely cares about the effectiveness of her coaching and this becomes more apparent through her active listening and her focus for results from our every session.
In my career to date, my roles have typically led me to focus on others rather than focusing on myself and as a consequence I sometimes find it hard to answer questions about myself or / and to share information about myself and my situation. Talking with Françoise however I always find myself sharing anything and everything which is the key reason for my belief in her as a coach. She is without a doubt in the right line of work and I am excited to see how her journey progresses.” Katie Poulsen
✺ “In limited time, Françoise has not only enabled me to realise and articulate my goals but also provided me with tools to maintain focus on these goals. With this, I have become more confident and successful in achieving my goals – not just to dream.” Tamara Smith
✺ “In 2017, I was promoted to a new role as the assistant track maintenance engineer (ATME) of Irvine without having been in a managerial position before. When I relayed my concerns to my colleague, Françoise, she offered to support and coach me through the challenges that I may have.
An example of an initial challenge that I had was with myself and my uncertainty so when I relayed my concerns to Françoise, she allowed me to speak freely without judgement, reassured me the emotions that I feel are normal and not in anyway a reflection of who I am and reaffirmed the fact that if I was picked out of other candidates then I am indeed able to rise up to the challenge. This let me hit the ground running mentally as I was more confident to hear positive words of affirmation from Françoise.
Throughout my time as a Manager, I was faced with some issues which I was not sure how to deal with so when I got in touch with Françoise, she was quick to respond to me. She listened attentively and asked questions to ensure that she understood my situation rather than assuming things which can cause more harm than good. In addition, she provided me with a framework to follow through so that my management style would have a productive outcome which promoted an open leadership style that my staff members to this day allows my staff members to be empowered and approach me on issues to work on them together rather than hiding these issues before it escalated too far. So thank you very much Françoise!” Michelle Lim
