Client Testimonials

Here is what some of our clients have to say:

I have been privileged to work with Viv for several years now. She has been a coach to a number of executives in key roles, helping us to build critical leadership competencies. The feedback about Viv is always superlative; increased confidence, real skills they can implement, better work/life balance, and increased ability to think and work strategically.

HR Director, Global Bank

Both Viv and the team of coaches that were on the project worked with the utmost professionalism and were particularly flexible and helpful when organisational changes meant that our initial agreement changed. It was good to work with someone who you could tell was engaged in the success of the project and kept a constant focus on achieving the commitments that had been made. Viv’s coaching expertise has also been of great value to me personally and Viv Chitty Associates would, without a doubt, be my first port of call for these services in the future.

HR Director, Nordics

Coaching sessions with Viv were always enjoyable and challenging but business-like, well organised, clearly summarised and questions for my subsequent consideration clearly defined.

Professor, Head of Psychology Department and acting pro Vice-Chancellor

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.

Finance and Business Support Director

I have been coached personally by Viv, hired an executive coaching service from her company and worked alongside her as part of a coaching programme. I fully recommend Viv Chitty Associates to anyone who is looking for coaching services.

Head of HR, Global Bank

I was deeply impressed by Viv during my coaching program. Viv’s approach felt highly individualised to my situation, my challenges and my particular idiosyncrasies.  Each session was mentally stimulating, prompting deep thought both within the session and afterwards.  Ultimately Viv was able to help me navigate a challenging period of my career and – I like to believe – prompted some self-development along the way.  All while making the sessions fun and pleasurable.   Wise, resourceful and enviably well-read, I would recommend Viv to any executive seeking coaching to further develop their effectiveness.

Chief Operating Officer, Global Bank

My coaching with Viv was invaluable in helping me manage 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.

Professor, Head of Psychology Department and acting pro Vice-Chancellor

Viv worked with me as my coach during an extended period of considerable uncertainty and change within the company. I found the coaching extremely helpful in many ways: building my self-confidence during the change process; helping me think through how to approach the challenges this brought and then supporting preparation for my new role following the change. Having set objectives at the start, Viv’s gentle challenging and thought-provoking tips and insights guided me on a path to achieving all of them by our final session. The coaching undoubtedly improved my effectiveness within the senior management team. I have no hesitation in recommending Viv as someone who can bring the best out of you.
