“The coaching helped with self-awareness and using my creativity and visionary skills to move from senior manager to director, and then later when moving from junior partner to the partner leading the group as I grew from functional specialism to a broader mindset. I learnt how to move the chess pieces around with ease, to see the bigger picture and be able to move in that sphere, including dealing with heavy friction when groups merged. It was a tough period due to politics and the different characters involved, and you were there for me to help navigate as well as anyone could through the mire.”
