Team Leader Pollution Response & Enforcement
Tell us about your role.

I am a Team Leader of Pollution Response & Enforcement at Hawke's Bay Regional Council. My role is managing all incidents related to unauthorised discharges to air, land water received by council, including any enforcement action required. It's a high pressure environment with plenty of conflict resolution that requires a timely, consistent and appropriate response.

What is 1-1 coaching like?

It was very easy working with Natasha, she had a great knowledge base to draw on and understood with ease the areas I required work on.

What did you get out of the program?

The core takeaways for me was self reflection and assessment. I've developed a greater openness to change and acquired the ability to better facilitate change.

What advice would you give to someone starting out with coaching?

Always make time for coaching and give it 100%.
