Sheryl coaches and supports leaders in Conversational Intelligence to help build constructive, empowering, results oriented teams and culture. In helping them understand the dynamics of change and interpersonal interaction she enables them to better design and implement effective strategies to facilitate personal and organisational transformation. She draws upon her deep knowledge and experience of individual and organisational development, systems and chaos theory, neuroscience and mindfulness based practice, and the interplay between conscious and unconscious processes to help them identify opportunities and resolve blockages in establishing effective work relationships, to shape culture and improve productivity.
Sheryl uses ‘conversational intelligence’ primarily with executives and leadership teams providing high quality coaching and facilitation to achieve agreed outcomes. Strongly respecting the uniqueness and resourcefulness of others she works as a strategic partner, co-creating open, honest relationships for growth. Working from their purpose, values and vision individuals and teams engaging with her explore and, as appropriate, challenge current reality, strengths, limiting beliefs, defensive routines and restrictive behaviour patterns, to understand how these interact to support or undermine achievement of their goals and aspirations.
Sheryl has worked in public, private and NFP corporations across a wide range of industries, at both the broad strategic and local level and relates well to people at all levels. She has experience in consulting, specialist (culture change/HR) and senior line management roles and and appreciates the complex demands and challenges facing leaders making change, equipping her well to engage others in:
