Starting a new role can be exciting and daunting all at once. You will have your own expectations of what success looks like in the long term. There might be a few areas where you know a little help could go a long way. Working with a professional coach could be the answer.

To give you a taster as to how a coaching relationship can be helpful, we teamed up with Clive Fathers and Sarah Lavan from Fathers & Lavan for an interactive virtual fire-side chat on how coaching works and the type of discussions that happen.

Sarah and Clive are both accredited coaches and, as former professional services partners, have personal experience of the issues faced by individuals transitioning into and then undertaking leadership roles in professional services firms, especially in the global mobility space. They apply their coaching skills to help others learn how to support themselves for long-term success. The session discussed what coaching is and how it could help.

We were also be joined by Richard Sham, Tax Director at Wisteria. He has benefited directly from his coaching experience and shared what it had unlocked for him.
