leading from the sweet spot

Are you a go-getting woman CEO or senior leader, thriving in the great work you do, but who sometimes feels overwhelmed, unconfident or isolated?

You are by no means alone. ‘Leading from the Sweet Spot’ is my new small group leadership coaching programme for ambitious and aspirational senior women leaders, like you, who really want to make a difference, inspire their teams and dramatically grow their impact, but who want the security and support of a group of peers alongside them.

“I was a bit apprehensive before joining the Sweet Spot, not knowing how much time I’d have to dedicate to it, and whether I’d be able to manage everything. I am so glad I listened to my instincts. The whole process has exceeded my expectations and given me the confidence to lead my organisation better.”

“Making time for your own development when you’re a senior manager with lots of responsibilities is always hard – doubly so in these crazy days. The Sweet Spot came along at just the right time. It introduced me to a brilliant group of senior women professionals: we got to know one another, learned together, helped each other and held each other accountable.

Throughout we were led, guided and supported by the wonderful Katie. She’s a great teacher and a wise coach, who always knows when to push, when to hold back; when to offer a tool or insight, and when to let the conversation flow. The mix of peer coaching and learning is really productive.

Now I have a new circle of work friends who I can go to for peer support, a kitbag stuffed full of good advice, new skills, tools and techniques. 

I am a more thoughtful and reflective leader as a result.

I recommend the Sweet Spot to anyone looking for an affordable, tailored programme that gives you space and time to think about what you are doing, helps you surmount the actual practical problems you face, and reset your own path.”

“One of the best things has been the other amazing women in the Sweet Spot. I’ve been blown away by their talent and experience. I’ve felt so supported and accepted. Katie has a plethora of tips and ways of working that tease out things that surprise you.  She’s able to create safe spaces, and has a great sense of humour – much needed right now.”
