Value of coaching

Coaching is a series of conversations, where a coach helps leaders shift from where they are, to where they want to be, by challenging their outlook or rethinking certain matters in their professional life. Professional coaching can help people produce extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses, or organisations.

Through challenging questioning, Kylie is able to encourage self-reflection. She helps managers and leaders to explore new ways of thinking about issues, which can disrupt unconscious patterns of behaviour that restrict people being the best they can be.

Kylie’s expertise as a coach, facilitator, trainer and mediator makes her the ideal partner to guide you into the next phase of your personal, team or organisational journey.

Ascend HR offers practical, tailored and professional executive coaching that gets results.
