...helping me to drive better results and refocus on more strategic initiatives
What worked well was Olwyn’s professionalism, experience and skills; coach preparation and my homework; clear objectives and regular reflections on the results. Part of the coaching sessions were focused on driving the process of identifying my successors as well as future organisation development. Today, I have a clear vision for the future organisation under the current situation as well as identified and stated coaching process for my successors. Significant focus on Executive Maturity is helping me to drive better results and refocus on more strategic initiatives rather than being tactical.

I do recognize the strong value you bring to me
Olwyn, I have been promoted to Executive Director last month. And I really want to thank you for the tremendous support you gave to me during our coaching sessions. From there, I think I initiated deep IDP work, focusing on my professional style, skills and my leadership abilities. The work is not finished yet as this is an ongoing process, but again, I do recognize the strong value you bring to me. Thank you.

She is an expert when it comes to the principles of leadership
Olwyn became my executive coach when I was promoted to SVP Corporate Sales & Marketing at Panduit. I was a newly appointed member of the Executive Leadership team reporting into the CEO. Olwyn was instrumental in supporting the development of my team and organization. She helped me to become a very effective leader. The end result was a highly performing team that made significant impact to the overall business results. The CEO was amazed in my transformation and that is down to Olwyn. She has a very clever insight into determining your development needs and assisting you to improve them. She is extremely professional and has great experience of working with many senior executives and she is an expert when it comes to the principles of leadership. The time I spent with Olwyn was incredibly valuable and at the same time very enjoyable. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

A massive impact on my leadership style, development and success over the last 10 years.
Olwyn is going a great job supporting many of our leadership team in Dell Technologies across EMEA – I have seen at first hand the very positive impact Olwyn’s coaching has had on their development and growth – with so many examples of strong career development and advancement (three leaders are great examples). I still often reference in career discussions my own direct coaching experience with Olwyn (many years ago) which had a massive impact on my leadership style, development and success over the last 10 years.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience and this has been a real benefit to me
It has helped me identify a much better way to approach Personal Development with things that I may have been ducking or choosing not to prioritize enough. She has the skills and experience to make me feel uncomfortable enough that we are reaching the root cause of some of my development areas. I think in the speed of business at Microsoft it is easy to put this stuff to the bottom of the list, when actually it demands more attention. It is a safe conversation where vulnerabilities or weaknesses can be discussed. I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience and this has been a real benefit to me.

...given me more confidence to move forward with tough conversations and business decisions
The coaching with Olwyn provides an external perspective in addition to those from my work colleagues. It provides a ‘safe’ environment to discuss current issues and evaluate courses of action to move forward. The coaching has given me more confidence to move forward with tough conversations and business decisions. It has helped me to plan communications with subordinates, peers and superiors to get the best from each of these interactions.
