Kirsten strongly believes that “we almost always have the answers we’re looking for; but often haven’t found the right question to ask, the confidence to ask it, or the headspace to listen to the answer. One of the most enjoyable parts of coaching is creating an environment where a client feels relaxed and purposeful enough to be able to do these things. I’ve worked with clients at their most exciting, ambitious, challenging and uncertain times; and the benefit that greater clarity, understanding and insight can give at these times can be transformative – to individuals, teams and organisations.”
