I first met/worked with Kate in early 2017. At the time, I was experiencing frustration as I had grown out of my role and the organisation I was working in and was looking to expand my network, learn from other smart women, and invest in developing myself so that I could get clarity on what was next for me in my career.
Over the next 12 months I participated in the LDMP and was coached by Kate. I could prioritise my own development, continually reflect on my goals and eventually get really clear on what was next for me which has meant that I have ended up with the courage to walk away from an opportunity that isn’t right for me with complete confidence that it’s the right decision.
What I loved about the LDMP was the focus you end up having on yourself and your own goals, when typically, my focus has always been developing others.
Kate’s direct approach and provocative questioning really forces you to be honest with yourself. I’m usually providing that for others so it was a valuable switch to be the coachee myself and be challenged by someone as experienced as Kate. She doesn’t let you away with much – which is actually the best thing for you and the sign of a really good coach.
