Senior executives are challenged in ways that seemed unimaginable previously. They have to drive results in a virtual world, keep teams engaged and decide on new strategies.
Executive coaching creates the space for senior leaders to step back from the “busyness” and reflect on what they are trying to achieve and how they can have optimal impact as a leader.
I became a far more balanced leader
Your support has been invaluable over the past few years encouraging me to take a much more considered approach when dealing with peers and other executives across Dell. The stakeholder exercises helped me prioritize and build my network. The work you did on gathering valuable feedback from my team helped me stay on track. You were always there as a sounding board, always offering balanced advice, some of which I did not really want to hear but made complete sense afterwards. Your experience in and outside of Dell has been invaluable. As a result of our time together I became a far more balanced leader, which has served me well, thank you!

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.

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.

...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.
