Through executive transition coaching, you’ll become more you and a better leader. You'll feel more capable, more in balance, look after yourself as well as others, make smarter goals, lower your stress levels, quit over-thinking and second-guessing, and feel more confident in yourself, your communication and your decisions. Not bad, huh?
It might sound a bit much, and perhaps not feel possible right now. It is, with a plan, prioritisation – and small steps – with me here every step of the way.
In a nutshell, the shift from manager to leader starts with awareness – of yourself, your impact on others, how you’re showing up, the system your working in, your stakeholders and their needs (see my article on here for examples of the shifts to make to go from manager to leader)
There’s a reason companies provide their top teams with executive and leadership coaches – it works. If you haven’t experienced coaching for yourself, I encourage you to give it a go.
Working on your development alone can only get you so far. A specialist, professional coach will hold a safe space for you to reflect, as well as provide you with the thought-provoking questions, support and challenge to offer you a different perspective and help you keep on track for your development goals.
My purpose is to help you with a smooth transition from manager to leader - to discover fresh perspectives and hold a safe space for your explorations. I'm here to help you succeed, and transform your leadership - now and for the future.
Who am I to do this? I have 25+ years business experience – including Director, Leadership Team and board-level experience in global corporate communications and general business management. Now a full time Executive Transition Coach, I offer whole person executive and leadership coaching (= personal + professional) to support professionals with the transformation from good to remarkable leaders.

Polly is a great coach, I know this as I've seen her in action (coaching me) and I've experienced the results. Polly is an active listener, she has a lot of corporate business experience which she combines with her coaching skills to deliver great outcomes.Global Head of Finance, Financial Services
Polly is natural and authentic. I trust Polly - she provides a good mix of challenge and support. Polly asks me to question my thinking and consider why I do things and the way I do them. She helps me see different perspectives. Shes very open and warm and shell never just nod and agree. With Polly, I make stretching targets and I know shes there when I need her.Team Manager, Retail, Logistics
I had the pleasure of working with Polly. Whenever I worked with her, I could be sure that we'd end up with an outcome that was more sophisticated than I would have got to on my own. It was always both rewarding and a pleasure to spend time talking to her. She's a fantastic coach.Director, global business, leadership team member
It was a real pleasure working with Polly. She is a good listener as well as a kind person, and I felt comfortable opening up to her and discussing my concerns with her. Polly was also empathetic and supportive. She would always respect my opinion and would offer her insight if needed. Polly asked me relevant questions that would broaden my thinking and help me to develop my own thoughts and ideas. She also enabled me to look at my situation from a different perspective and achieve things I would not have achieved on my own. If you are looking for a good coach who is also an understanding and caring person, Polly is definitely the one to start working with.KR, HR professional
I'd had a dreadful year and a professional derailment. I quickly found a new role, but then found I was worried about losing my job again. I felt lost and felt I'd lost who I was when I lost my job, and lost my sense of who I am too. A friend suggested I saw Polly - I hadn't had a coach before and didn't know what to expect. Polly put me at ease straight away. With Polly, I learned about centring and about different parts of myself and how to question my negative thinking. I'm using our time together to talk things through and practise conversations before having them and to think about ways to make sure I'm on the right track to help me. My old self is coming back - and there's more to my life now than just work.Executive Assistant
I went to Polly seeking more clarity around my project, to gain insight and more self-awareness and I wanted help dealing with my fear of criticism, to stop thinking of other peoples opinions. I wanted to have the courage to show up, and do more talks and presentations. I found our conversations meaningful and insightful. The quality of Pollys questions made the biggest impact on the way I was processing my thoughts and coming up with new solutions. I noticed that after every session I was motivated to take actions. My thoughts and feelings are now generating enough momentum to overcome inertia and act. With Polly, Ive learned that a deep and meaningful conversation can lead to tangible results and now I reflect in more depth.University lecturer, inventor and entrepreneur
I went to Polly with concerns about my work/life balance there wasnt any! I was overworked and very tired, trying to juggle everything. I took on weight for everyone, was working all the time and looking after everyone all the time. I became ill as a result. When I talked it all through with Polly, I noticed I was holding everything for everyone, emotionally too, and understood for the first time why I was doing this. This realisation is a big breakthrough for me. I havent really had to stop before getting ill and now, exploring things with Polly, its given me time to think, reprioritise and try out ways to do things differently. Im noticing that I now make time for myself and Im starting to take better care of myself so I can keep well and help others. Im now able to relax more and let others help and share responsibility. This is big for me!Founder and CEO of Education Charity
Polly is an excellent coach-mentor. She was very attentive to my needs and through her sessions, I received guidance and support which helps me to explore my personal identity, values and other areas of my life.Pak Lou
