Sam has worked in HR for over 25 years, starting her career as an HR Administrator at a high security hospital becoming a Senior HR Manager at a mining organisation, where she had experience of working at a site that achieved a Shingo Award for Operational Excellence, leading the HR function in contributing to the achievement of the Award.
Through her career, she worked in different organisations and sectors, from the NHS and the Police Service to working for a private cleaning contractor. She has also worked for a defence contractor and was promoted from Senior HRBP to Head of HR Operations during the 7 years she worked there.
"Sam has been nothing short of outstanding during the coaching process. She has, through various methods, managed to get me to think in a different way; the outcome being I feel more capable on a professional and personal level."
"I have a fundamental belief that anyone can change and develop to achieve, if they want it enough. They just may not know how they get there. Through the sessions that we have together, I enable my coachees, in an intuitive and creative way, the time and space to consider what the solutions are and the steps that they need to take, to move forward.
As a coach, I recognise I am in a privileged position with my coachees and so having a good rapport is important to me, ensuring that they feel comfortable to open up and share their challenges, as well as their feelings, in a safe, confidential environment."
