I coach mid- and senior-level professionals in the corporate sector (predominantly financial services), helping them to position their personal brand, successfully navigate their networks and expand career possibilities.
My coaching approach draws from:
a) Latest findings in the field of neuroscience to create an understanding of how coaching impacts neuroplasticity and helps build the psychological skills needed to support lasting change.
b) Systemic Thinking to help senior professionals, executives and business leaders to look beyond individual development to find solutions which also benefit the wider systems they're part of.
c) My strong corporate experience in senior leadership and organisational development roles within large multinational organisations. This means my coaching approach is tailored to factor in pressures and constraints that come with leadership responsibility in these organisations.
I unlock the potential of individuals and teams in creative industries. They’re ambitious, enthusiastic, fun, open-minded and curious. They want to make things better for themselves and are committed to change. And that’s why I love working with them.
Career Coaching - helps people find their new career direction, overcome what’s holding their career back. They have clarity on what’s next and how to get there. They enjoy more fulfilling careers.
Leadership Coaching - shifts leaders from micro-managers to big picture, system-aware leaders. They show more self-awareness, interact effectively, motivate better, and have more conscious leadership.
Team Coaching - transforms teams into high-performing teams. They show more positivity and increased productivity, they trust more, there’s more constructive debate. There’s also more commitment, accountability and attention on team results.
My business experience and coaching focus is very much on personal and organisational development and the corresponding change management processes, and on delivering coaching interventions to improve resilience, performance and leadership capability. I also specialises in coaching individuals to develop an authentic leadership presence, particularly those moving from middle to senior management or into a Board level role.
I provide a calm and constructive coaching environment in which clients feel at ease and able to be honest about how they are feeling about their work and their lives. I bring wisdom and kindness into the space, letting in the light that enables clients to tap into their own authentic resourcefulness and to create a better future for themselves.
Ana Paula Nacif
I am an experienced coach and personal development trainer who works with individuals on career progression and leadership. I work with middle and senior managers in the public and not-for profit sectors.
My coaching style is insightful, challenging, intuitive, encouraging, direct and energetic. By creating an atmosphere of trust, I am able to challenge comfort zones and tap into the resourcefulness of my clients with clarity. Clients say that I am a dynamic and insightful coach who is not afraid to push the boundaries to support my clients to achieve their full potential.
I work predominantly with people who want to make a positive difference in their lives and for those around them. I often work with creatives, people from a social care or voluntary sector background, changemakers and those interested in carving their own path.
I offer 1-1 coaching for mothers and also offer Firework for mothers returning to work.
In addition, I specialise in working with people who want to develop their inner resources to sustain themselves whilst creating external change.
My style is warm, collaborative, intuitive, flexible and creative. I love to work in-depth so, alongside your plan for a future career, you have the opportunity to develop practices and strategies that will support you as you step into your future. Getting the right balance of challenge and support can make a huge difference as you work towards a career transition so we work together to ensure this.
My coaching specialisms are:-
- Career transitions
- Planning and preparing for expatriate secondments and repatriation
- Career-life interactions
I offer a space within which you are able to share, explore and develop action plans for the career opportunities or challenges that you face, based on a trusted and confidential relationship. I have personally experienced the highs and lows of the career cycle across professional and financial services organisations, the impact it can have on other domains of life and the importance of maintaining perspective and well-being. The decisions will always be yours to make; my role is to ask the right questions to help make your decisions as informed as possible.
I specialise in working with people from creative, digital, fast paced, or entrepreneurial business backgrounds. People who may be:
• Successful but frustrated and unhappy in their current career
• Full of ideas but unsure how to make them happen
• Women who have become mothers, who want an autonomous and fulfilling career that allows them to live the life they want to live now.
My style as a coach is warm, intuitive, and, at times, direct. I encourage experimentation and action. This helps the people I work with realise their potential and affirm their confidence.
I love working with people who are looking to better their lives by finding a career built on their strengths and their needs.
I have a lot of experience with parents who find that they need a different balance in their lives whilst their children are small.
In addition I have worked with people who are face a 'bore-out' or 'burn-out' and are looking for a new reality.
I would describe my style as supportive and result-oriented. I tend to see through the stresses of my clients to their true strengths. I do expect my clients to take responsibility and ownership of the coaching process. What I mean with that is that I am not going to 'whip' or 'chase' my clients into shape. That is up to them to do.
Catseye Coaching provides the following coaching principles:
- Business coaching for small businesses, entrepreneurs and sole traders in B2B.
- Career transition coaching for clients between 35-55yrs who are stuck in a career they've fallen out of love with or been forced into change and they're not sure where to go next.
- Personal empowerment for those looking to take control of their own personal development and future.
My coaching will give you the clarity, certainty and confidence to make changes that are right for you and your business.
I will help you love Mondays again.
My signature strength is my ability to connect with clients at a heart level, working with the whole person in order to help them find clarity and a deep sense of meaning.
I help leaders and individuals who are in transition, finding direction, building confidence and resilience in times of change to enable clients to achieve and sustain success.
