Her methodology is based on a blend of coaching and the therapeutic – from a Corporate Anthropologist perspective her goal is ensuring both individuals and organisations goals are met. Performance coaching looks to future goals, while uncovering patterns that hinder performance, are discharged by a therapeutic mode, both are critical for optimal performance. We should not be afraid of therapist and coach being in the one person. In fact, to isolate them may render some interventions as ineffective.
