I have known Wendy for many years in a professional capacity and delighted that she has now joined the Awbery team as part of our Associate base. Wendy is a results driven, commercially focussed HR professional who is current in her thinking. Wendy takes time to understand the culture of the organisation and the challenge presented to her. Either as an Awbery team member or within her own business I would not hesitate to ask Wendy to support a client either strategically or operationally.
I found Wendy invaluable, while we were looking at our approach to implementing our coaching culture. She supported and collaborated with our internal coaches and was also able to offer mentoring for other candidates who wished to avail of this. She is so easy to work with. Wendy is approachable, caring, a great listener and really understood our culture and which direction we wanted to go for our organisation.
From the start of my coaching sessions with Wendy I was given the genuine sense that the sessions were about me and what I wanted to achieve through them. I felt listened to, valued and supported. At the same time Wendy challenged me in a non-threatening and innovative way to find my own solutions to the issues I wanted to address. Wendy helped me to look at things differently in both my work and personal life. This enabled me to deal with the many different facets of my life, which often interlink, in my own way. She motivated me to achieve more from my life at a time that I needed it. I also found the drive and confidence to take on a new and different challenge in my career that I may not have done without the coaching that Wendy provided.
Wendy has assisted on a number of tricky HR situations for myclients and I’m always very impressed. She takes a commercialyet personable approach and she’s a pleasure to work with.Clients rate her highly and want to continue working with her! Icouldn’t recommend her enough.
Wendy has been an associate trainer / HR Consultant with Awbery for the past year and has been a great asset to our team. I can recommend Wendy for innovative design and delivery of leadership, HR and coaching skills, with superb feedback from our clients, at senior, middle and first line level. Wendy has a great coaching style and is a true professional in her approach, working with a number of our key Corporate clients. Wendy has an exceptionally high level of emotional intelligence and quickly and effectively understands the needs of the clients and individuals she is developing. We are delighted to have Wendy on the Awbery team.
I had the pleasure of meeting Wendy as a co-colleague on a recent Coaching programme. I was immediately impressed with her ability to establish highly effective relationships with people. Wendy is very perceptive and intuitive which is a real asset to her coaching. She has an impressive ability to balance ‘support’ and ‘challenge’ in order to achieve effective outcomes. My experience of Wendy is that she is highly tuned to people’s needs through clear listening and added to this is an astute commercial awareness.
Wendy and I met as fellow participants on the Professional Coaching Skills Certificate course. I was coached by Wendy through a time of personal career transition and felt completely supported and listened to. She created rapport and trust, which allowed real exploration of what was important to me and enabled me to challenge beliefs and assumptions which were getting in the way. In the end I was able to create a good ending to one role and a clean start to the new role. It would have been easy for Wendy to draw on her extensive HR experience to offer me advice and solution – however the real value for me was her holding the space open for me to create my own solutions
