What I Offer…

I work with business owners and managers who never planned to manage people. But they were so good at growing their business, or doing the day job, that now they have a team to manage.

And now they are struggling.

They are accidental managers - they didn't plan to be here and they don't have the skills to lead a team. Yet.

Most also don't have time to spend out of the business on a management training course - especially if they spend 80% of the course studying ideas that are irrelevant to the business or that they already know.

What if you could just buy the 20% you need?

  • A coaching programme designed specifically for you, and the challenges and personalities in your team.
  • Delivered either face to face (in the East Midlands) or via Skype/Zoom in 2 hour bite-sized chunks.
  • So flexible it can adapt to new challenges or problems that crop up as we go?
  • With a coach who will also make sure you have the right HR procedures and policies in place so that you can stay in control long after the coaching programme ends?

If all that sounds too good to be true - well that's exactly what I do.

I help accidental managers grow a backbone and get back where they should be, in control of their team, their time, and their business.

Why I’m good at what I do…

Some people find their “for life” career after many false starts. Not me! I graduated from The University of Bradford in 1991 with an honours degree in Managerial Sciences, and I have coached, trained and supported managers ever since. I’m also a Chartered Member of the CIPD, which I qualified to join in 1996 when I successfully completed a post-graduate diploma in Personnel Management.

Even my dissertation title was "Can Line Managers Manage?" So when I call myself a People Management and HR Expert, I have over 20 years' experience to back up that claim.
I know the difference great people managers can make, and I want to share that with you, so that you can be the kind of boss that great employees never want to leave. It's not hard, it doesn't take a long time or a lot of effort. Just a clearly focused and structured approach, commitment and consistency.

The Accidental Manager Coach is your people management and HR expert in your corner, helping you manage better, feel more confident and most importantly, feel happier about managing your team.

So if you’re ready to increase your productivity, reduce the hassle of team management, and build a more profitable business, give me a call.

Things I like…

Family, canals, rivers, tea shops and coffee shops mainly. And gin of course!
