Frances has been working as an Accredited Executive and Career Coach for over 15 years. Prior to this she spent over 12 years in Business Development/Leadership Development at Clifford Chance and CMS. Frances coaches partners, associates and business professionals, many of whom are managing career and life transitions including parental transition and menopause. She uses her coaching expertise combined with an understanding of business development to enable high performers to successfully perform in a partnership environment, and to do so purposefully.
Through her work with over 400 individuals from City professional services organisations, in the UK and internationally, Frances sees the importance of supporting professionals at key transitional points to help them progress positively through change. Frances often supports clients to build a practice, step up to prepare for partnership/counsel promotion, build their leadership identity, develop confidence playing to their strengths – often whilst transitioning to parenthood.Get in touch
Frances’ experience helps her bring a level of empathy and pragmatism to her coaching and clients describe her as positive, supportive and challenging. Her motivating and human approach means she is quickly able to build trust with clients in a collaborative way with a clear focus on client’s outcomes.
She blends an intuitive style with insightful questions and space to think, to enable individuals to achieve an increased self-awareness and then to gain greater clarity how to progress. This is supported using a blend of MBTI, Strengths Profile, 360 feedback and other tools as appropriate.
