In the media

  • In a Financial Times opinion on “Managing Others” (Andrew Hill, 28 May 2018) Tiffany makes the case for leaders and managers to act like coaches. She says “executives and teams can be coached to reduce ‘interference’ from outside factors such as stress and blame, and realize their potential”.
  • In ‘Train to Gain’, a special report on coach training published by Coaching at Work, Tiffany is interviewed about the trends and results Performance Consultants observe in their work with organizations, and says that coaching is “the practical skill that managers require to create high performance in organizations”.
  • Tiffany shares her insights on a coaching approach with Kerry Eustice in The Guardian, in an article exploring emotional intelligence (EQ) and the fast-growing demand for leaders with a coaching style.
  • In an article on wellbeing at work in The Sunday Times, Tiffany explains “We’re not encouraged to be human in the work place but when we finally get in touch with ourselves through programmes such as Coaching for Performance it’s such a relief to actually be who we are, it’s like finding the truth for ourselves for the first time”.
  • Tiffany shares her thoughts with Amy Elisa Jackson for Glassdoor, on why leaders need executive coaching to unlock their potential to maximize their own performance and that of their organization. Tiffany says that “more and more companies and individuals view coaching as providing a competitive advantage to both individual and company by creating outstanding leadership competence”. She explains that it is “vitally important for leaders in today’s world to be values-driven, have broad and deep vision, be authentic (be who they really are, and not be afraid to be so in front of others), be agile and be aligned. Coaching and other forms of self-development are great ways to explore and develop these parts of oneself”.
