Quotation Marks

I have found Viv to be an excellent coach. She has a great ability to listen and challenge my thinking where needed, whilst always seeming to remain firmly interested in my success and wellbeing. I have a very busy role but I highly value the time I spend with Viv as more often than not she helps me find long lasting solutions whilst helping accelerate my personal development. For example Viv has helped me find win-win solutions that have helped develop my leadership style whilst reducing my overall workload. This has included teaching me some of the arts of coaching which has helped me increase the outputs from my teams. I have no hesitation in recommending Viv as a very effective executive coach.

Quotation Marks

My coaching with Viv Chitty was invaluable in managing a challenging part of my career. The questions formulated during the coaching sessions were often not the ones I would have intuitively anticipated and so would have been very unlikely to emerge from any "self help" regime I may have attempted. Tentative conclusions and proposed courses of action arrived at during the coaching sessions were always revisited and re-examined, and the threads of our discussions cleverly interwoven to test their implications for both elements of my job and my retirement plans.
