Coaching Style

As a woman with a long career in professional services who received little or no formal coaching, Gaelle is keen to offer leaders – aspiring, established or in transition – the opportunity to engage in coaching to accelerate their development and growth with confidence. Her style is shaped by her inherent curiosity about people, their unique perspectives and team dynamics. She is naturally optimistic, preferring to work from strengths, unlocking blockages, and enabling awareness of underlying patterns or behaviours. She offers her clients the time and space to assess, reflect, test assumptions, and reframe challenges, in order to make assertive, positive choices.

Gaelle has an integrative and systemic coaching approach. She brings to the relationship a depth of business experience gained by working in a variety of roles – as a senior manager and P&L holder, as a seasoned consultant, and as an executive and non-executive Board member. She can tap into a rich and multi-disciplinary repertoire to support the coaching discussion as needed; such as profiling tools, 360 feedback, visualisation/visioning, strategy mapping, Scorecard, leadership assessments, cultural map, etc.

Clients and colleagues describe Gaelle as non-judgmental and empatheticconsidered and analyticalincisive and a perceptive listener. She believes that success comes when people can perform at their best. Her goal is to help create the conditions and develop pragmatic solutions to make that happen.

"The six sessions I had with my ECC Coach changed my perspective of coaching. I was initially uncertain (and possibly sceptical) about the benefits of coaching but my coach read me very well and knew when to coax a response out from me by being encouraging and when to firmly push me to see the benefits of reframing some of my previously held positions."

Head of Legal, International Property Group

"Both from my personal experience of ECC’s approach, and from seeing the impact on our company I can particularly recommend their pragmatic approach and their insight into our collective and individual needs."

Senior Leader, Commercial Property Management and Investment Company

"The team is a pleasure to work with, consistently bringing expert advice and guidance, energy and professionalism to the partnership."

Diversity and Inclusion Executive, Multinational Investment Bank

"The coaches at ECC are commercial, pragmatic and highly focused. The coaching they provide on an individual basis has given valuable insight and helped our senior executives to gain greater perspective in terms of managing relationships, prioritising, strategic thinking, influencing and confidence."

Senior Leader, Multinational Retailing Company

"I found my ECC coaching sessions incredibly valuable - for the unique and necessary space I was seeking as a sole proprietor to feel heard, understood and connected to a peer in business. My coaching experience provided a safe space where I could be the real me, and provided a relationship I could truly trust. Thank you ECC."
