Leaders who partner with an Executive Coach have their own confidential thinking and sparring partner — someone who holds a safe space for you to explore your thoughts and dilemmas without judgement.

I bring a fusion of professional coaching, business strategy and human science in service of my clients.
Sehaam Cyrene PCC

Ambitious leaders want to show up at their best. Working with me gets them there faster.

“I’ve never felt so supported in my professional career.”
“I can sleep tonight.”
“I would never have got here without you.”
“Every time we meet, I walk away knowing exactly what I need to do.”
“I ask more questions now… to invite others to the table.”
“My boss and my peers confide in me these days.”
“Encouraging my team to make more decisions has given them confidence…”
“…and given me more time to be strategic.”
“I’m more aware of my behaviours and how that affects my team.”
“I no longer think I’m a bad manager.”
“I feel at ease, less emotional, having delicate conversations with people.”
“I don’t feel alone anymore.”
“I have better conversations with every member of my team. And they love it.”
Executive Coaching has emerged as the most effective on-the-job method for increasing leadership capability and productivity when compared to other professional development and training interventions.
Conservative global industry estimates of the monetary investment indicate a 6 to 7-fold return on investment from coaching. And when combined with training, the increased productivity yields are over 80%.

Book 2-Hour Deep Dive
We all have times when we can’t think clearly, don’t feel confident, feel exposed (a bit of an imposter), feel we lack influence or impact, feel anxious about a tough conversation with someone, feel the stakes are overwhelmingly high, and lose sleep because we’re stuck in a loop of worry and anxiety.
This is exactly what I’m here for — to help you break out of that loop and get you back on track however that needs to look for you.

Coaching sessions carve out valuable time to think, process and get clear on what’s important to us and what our best course of action needs to be.
You save time and energy because you get unstuck and you stop worrying.
Conversations with your team, your peers and your boss are more productive and outcome-focused because you’re intentional and strategic.

Private Clients & Leadership Teams

I work with private clients as well as leaders and leadership teams in organisations.

Why clients rate my sessions 10/10

“I really enjoyed each and every session and found them to be very valuable. They really helped in bringing back ways of working which were lost along my career as well as bringing in new ideas that I can incorporate to help me grow as an individual and help others to grow also. 10 out of 10!”

“It’s improved the way I listen to people rather than rushing in to give my opinion… so I can make informed responses that let them know I’m listening.”

“Leaving each and every session with new ideas and key takeouts that I can look to incorporate into my way of working.”

“One of my coaching sessions helped me in preparation for a challenging client meeting with multiple stakeholders. We discussed my approach and prep for the meeting which helped me to deliver a productive and successful meeting with the stakeholders bought into the project and next steps.”

“I think by giving individuals the coaching sessions it has reframed how one thinks and to think of the bigger picture – the goal everyone is aiming to achieve and using new techniques to put that into practice more. Encouraging conversations, collaboration, helpfulness and honesty between teams.”

“I feel much calmer so I can make better decisions without clouded judgement. I’ve slowed down and had better conversations. By having the better conversations, there is less animosity between teams, meaning we are more productive.”

“It has helped our teams become more efficient and will enable our teams to better support our customers when they are live with the solution.”

“Enthusiasm has changed and individuals are aware of their individual goals and expectations. Processes have been incorporated which is bringing in more structure to team discussions.”

“More openness and willingness to discuss areas to improve.”

“We are all different and we all process input in different ways. (Examples of impact are) 1 – We changed the way the team work to ensure the entire team has visibility of next week’s work, as certain people like to go away and collect their thoughts beforehand. 2 – From having check-ins with my team I now understand how they would like to grow and I’ve been supporting them with supplementary tasks; organising the weekly code releases, owning the design for new features, being stand in scrum master. 3 – Being inquisitive, which forces people to think about their requirements/problems from a different view point.”

“Thinking about my own values and my behaviours within the business and being more mindful of how I can display them within and outside of my team. Committing to actions at the end of each session and contracting to them has seen some good outcomes.”

“Defining what I value. It has been great having a mirror (Sehaam) to help my thoughts become clear and work on my outlook on my career.”

“Talking through areas I’m trying to improve gave me an additional perspective and concrete actions to take from the session.”

“Being listened to. Being able to openly discuss areas that I would like to improve/work as well as problems, without any consciences/prejudice. Then exploring these areas in productive manner.”

“It has encouraged me to work closer with and understand how we as a team can collaborate better with others outside our team. For example, coaching sessions were a catalyst and gave me extra motivation to arrange a session with our Support and Ops teams to discuss challenges we were having with the new Support platform and general ways of working. We had a very productive meeting and over the past few weeks we have worked together to improve a number of the processes, information shared and responses between our teams.”

“Connecting my personal issues to the challenges one faces in business. It’s been hugely productive.”

“The process has identified a collective awareness and understanding of what we feel our culture should be and has provided a base to help push this across on a day-to-day basis.”

“I think it’s helped the participants bond with each other. It’s clear that each individual is committed to helping the company succeed through dedication, growth and having a good work ethic. There’s a feeling that ‘we’re all in this together’.”

“This programme has allowed me to meet and speak to people across various departments and geographical regions, to get to know them in itself has been a benefit. My work and output has improved by sharing and exchanging more ideas with my colleagues and by working closer together as a team.”

“I hope it’s improved the way I listen to people rather than rushing in to give my opinion. So, better at gathering other people’s thoughts so I can make informed responses that let them know I’m listening.”

“Feel like I’m able to contribute more to discussions as well as support others to do the same.”

“My communication has altered, depending on whom I am speaking with. If that means picking up the phone with certain people, I have. I have started to be more open to the idea of communicating in methods that aren’t my norm. It has made building relationships a lot easier, and given them more visual.”

“I haven’t been as uncomfortable to address when I think something is wrong or disrespectful.”

“My expectations of myself are still there – but now I have been able to find a way to share those expectations with others around me. I have been going above and beyond in certain ways, while being able to knowledge share. E.g. The expectation of me attending networking events (learning more of my craft) and coming back and sharing notes with my team. This way when I learn, they do to. Overall, I believe working on myself has been crucial. It is rare that we focus on an individual in a team oriented structure. But the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack. I have been able to step outside of normal framing to work on myself. I have been able to come back to my team and make us all stronger. It’s small changes like this that have altered energy, productivity, and expectations throughout.”

“Learning how to be less critical of my self and looking at the smaller things as well as the big picture.”

“I feel more committed to the company and I want to be part of the future to embed this and make it a great place. I’ve been working on my sponsors in each team and looking to take the pain away from others… I’ve approached new managers in the Operations team to offer my help with anything that they are struggling with or can help answer any questions they might have.”

“The culture has become more a supportive, caring culture. Understanding people’s needs and desires and supporting them to ensure they feel included and respected within the company.”

“Thanks so much – I learned and I believe benefited professionally from this program.”
