A very warm welcome to Humans Resourced, a training and coaching business with the spirit of adventure, challenge and growth at its heart.
When I’m not out adventuring (you might like to check out my 365 Days Of Adventure project here and read about some of my traditional adventuring here ) , I’m busy with the adventure of running my coaching and training business.
My career in the field of people development spans more than 25 years. I ran my very first personal development workshop in 1986, became a qualified school teacher in 1995, went on my first coach-training programme in 1997, and gained a considerable amount of experience in the field of coaching, development and training in a range of corporate roles (including setting up an in-house coach training academy).
I became a mother in 2000, but continued to add to my coaching toolkit (supplementing traditional coaching tools with approaches from the world of NLP, hypnosis, MBTI, sport, weight loss, and health and fitness). In 2001, I set up a health and fitness coaching business which worked well with motherhood and part-time corporate work. In 2005, I returned full-time to my original coaching, development and training roots when I set up Humans Resourced (specialising in 1-1 coaching, NLP training, hypnosis training, storytelling training and weight loss).
Whilst I’ve got a significant amount of experience and expertise, I’m still passionately committed to my own development. I know that when I’m growing and learning new things, I’m not only enjoying myself outrageously but I’m also adding to the “pot” as I go. And I pull on that pot of knowledge and experience in everything I do.
One thing I can guarantee if we work together is this : I’ll show up in full. You’ll get everything I’ve got. I’ll look like I’m enjoying myself far too much to get paid (and I’d put money on you and your business getting a huge amount out of the experience too).
From training needs analysis to programme development, from delivery to post-programme evaluation, from personal coaching to developing coaching capacity in your business, from group facilitation to coaching supervision for your in-house coaches : count me in.
Oh and if you’re wondering whether I’m qualified to look after the needs of you, or your business, in this way, I’ve included some of the relevant stuff below . Just drop me an email if you’d like a copy of my full professional bio and I’d be happy to send it to you.
In the meantime, I am just going outside and I may be some time 🙂
