I am the Senior Leader of a commercial creative and strategy team in Brisbane. I'm responsible for leading the team to deliver best-in-market, cross channel brand integration. It's fast paced, high pressure, dynamic and deadline driven.
I've absolutely loved it. The one to one nature of it was really great, it allowed me to talk about a multitude of challenges and development areas. I loved Louise's coaching style and found the whole experience extremely valuable.
As challenges arose month to month, I was able to workshop them with someone outside of the business, who had a different perspective, yet still had an intimate understanding of our business. For my own professional development as a leader, I was able to ask for guidance on a range of areas which I was keen to develop but hadn't necessarily had time to stop down on previously.
Be extremely open, transparent and trust your coach. Make sure you recap your action plan at the end of every session and try to tick everything off before your next session. Come prepared with topics you want to talk about.
