Helping finance teams to attract, develop and retain great staff while providing excellent business value and stakeholder service
Melanie has been working with our team for the past 12 months, both for one to one coaching at career or life transition points and our office wide wellbeing workshops. She has made a discernible impact on the team, raising the level of self-understanding and resilience. She is able to translate her practical experiences in finance into both pragmatic advice but also importantly is able to have true empathy of their roles and challenges. She has provided some valuable insight. On a professional note working with her has been pleasure, she being both very efficient and responsive and responding to feedback
Melanie has been working 1:1 with members of my Saffery Peterborough team over the last year. She has helped those qualified preparing for promotion to Assistant Manager and recently promoted to Manager positions making the difficult transition to management. She has supported them to build their own self-awareness and self-confidence to achieve their potential. The focus has been on helping them become well-rounded finance professionals. We wanted someone to work with the people and invest time in them. The sessions are confidential to the mentee and have been really well received by the team.
Melanie is ideally placed to work with the our people having worked in the profession and industry in Accounting & Finance, as well as her current capacity of coach and mentor to accountants and finance professionals.
On the back of the success to date, we have extended the mentoring scheme as it is a key part of our commitment to our people.
Melanie has been working with theGrogroup delivering some really useful insights into motivation using a Motivation Maps tool that divides up into 9 motivators. What is so useful is that once the report has been reviewed with an individual, the system can ‘map the team’. This weights everybody motivators and shows the ‘balance’ of motivators in a team which highlights the reasons for peculiar dynamics – when some people have very different personal motivators to the team overall. A bit like a fish swimming in a different direction.
Melanie is professional and responsive. A joy to work with.
Melanie came to work with our office team of 6 following a recommendation from an associate.We all completed the Motivational Maps questionnaire beforehand and Melanie then worked with us a group and one to one to discuss the results.
Melanie is a great coach, explaining with clarity and giving straightforward potential solutions.Would not hesitate to recommend Melanie to work with individuals or teams.
