I began the coaching journey at a time when I was unsure about my next steps in leadership, having just given back my TLR in a bid to secure part time hours following maternity leave. Having space to speak to someone and reflect on a regular basis allowed me to really grow as a leader. We rarely get that time to talk or reflect on our own leadership but coaching showed me how important it is to seek out those spaces. It has helped me grow in confidence and helped me to realise the true meaning of leadership. Everybody should have a coach – the impact has been profound.
Having taught for nearly 14 years and taken part in a range of CPD opportunities, I can honestly say that coaching with Yasmin has had the biggest impact on my leadership skills.
