Executive coaching can assist managers to become more effective leaders by helping them to see where they are operating from self-limiting strategies and beliefs and false or limiting assumptions and providing the resources and perspective to transform them into more empowering ones.
Coaching can promote the achievement of organisational outcomes and help to improve wellbeing, resilience and performance. It can assist during times of transition, supporting people with career management, career development and progression and helps to build more engaging relationships and enhanced productivity and performance at an individual and organisational level.
★ I work on the assumption that everyone is already naturally resourceful, creative and whole
MindFlame's unique approach to coaching focuses on uncovering each client's full potential, helping them to identify their strengths as well as blind spots. Through cultivating self-awareness, I help clients develop the ability to see from various perspectives, think outside the box, and lead teams towards collaboration, innovation and growth.
★ Learn how to access an optimal state of mind and use core emotional intelligence skills
I coach and mentor managers and teams to develop self-reflection and self-awareness, which can lead to more engagement and productivity at work and beyond and also improves resilience and wellbeing.
★ Gain greater clarity and focus
Finding out what truly matters? And why does it matter? I help people to identify current and future goals, purpose and direction and enable them to identify strategies to move forwards and achieve the results that they want in their careers, business, health, relationships and lives.
★ Review mindset and beliefs
I use the tools of mindfulness, emotional intelligence, strengths coaching and NLP and findings from neuroscience, leadership development, positive psychology, behavioural science and the latest research on wellbeing. I blend these different approaches to encourage you to develop an inside-out' understanding of how we create our reality and live our life and ensure that there are the best possible conditions for growth, performance and thriving.
★ Create change and transformation from within
I help you to see how satisfaction, performance and wellbeing are usually most effective and lasting when created from within ourselves, rather than relying on lots of external factors. Having this insight and awareness enables management and teams to bring out the best in themselves and each other and helps senior staff to develop perspective and presence as a leader.
★ Lead with greater impact and influence
Managers can lead with greater wisdom and compassion and develop greater impact and influence to create a supportive, productive and collaborative culture in your team or organisation.
My approach aims to help you and your teams to gain awareness and clarity so that you can achieve your goals and develop greater understanding and mastery of your mind and emotions and become more resourceful in your responses to solving challenges and problems - to help you to thrive in life, work and business.
★ Flexible arrangements, based on client needs
Coaching sessions are scheduled according to client requirements, typically they are fortnightly, monthly or more frequently if the need arises. Each coaching relationship is designed to achieve your desired outcomes and performance objectives. Executive and leadership coaching engagements usually last for a minimum of three months, and can be six months to a year in duration. Sessions can be delivered via Zoom/Skype, phone or in person.
Every client engagement is unique and tailored to the individual. Typical areas of focus can include:
- Leadership effectiveness and leadership development

"I loved working with Rosemary. She has a natural ability to connect and build strong connections and made me feel at ease. From the very beginning of the first session, I felt safe and understood. Rosemary has a wealth of life experience and is able to relate to what's going on, and give feedback when needed. Her patience and curiosity allowed me to explore my beliefs and holdbacks, and then she gracefully led me to change them to more empowering ones. I can not recommend working with Rosemary enough!"
