Liz Gatheral - Leadership Coach in Preston, United Kingdom

Mrs. Liz Gatheral

Profession: Leadership Coach

About Me & My Practice

My background is in architecture and project management. I have spent 20 years working with a wide variety of clients on projects of all sizes and I discovered that it is the human relationships that decide whether they are successful or not. As a result I have spent the last 17 years studying personal development and empowerment, particularly in relationship to leadership and team dynamics. I have led several teams from individual project and programme teams to leading a department of multi-disciplined professionals.
Coaching helped me transform my life when I was at a huge transition point and inspired me to go and train as a coach myself.

I work with clients who are undergoing a period of transition, often brought about my major changes in life circumstances. We work together to process the emotions that arise at that time and still take positive action steps towards a brighter future.

As a coach I provide a non judgemental, empathetic, objective and compassionate approach to help you tap into your hidden strengths, You already have all the skills and talents you need, I can help you unlock and reawaken them.
At times we can all get a little stuck. You may be at a crossroads in your career, recovering from illness or undergoing a period of significant change. Times like these can generate a whole host of emotions and thoughts ; confusion, fear, sadness, anxiety. Coaching can assist in bringing clarity to the situation to enable you to move forward and take suitable action. It is a great approach for setting and achieving goals because as coach I will act as your accountability partner.
Coaching is focused on making any changes sustainable otherwise, they won’t last. It is not a quick fix solution and I ask clients to work with me for a minimum of three months. This is purely because any form of change meets with resistance. The patterns of behaviour we currently have, have served us in some way, so we can be reluctant to change these even though we know that they are no longer appropriate.
It is very important that there is rapport between client and coach and for this reason I offer a 30 minute informal, no obligation conversation to see if we are a good match. If you would like to take advantage of this then please fill in the form here.
It can help you make the changes you want in your life so don’t leave your future up to chance. Take control of your life and create the future you want.

I also work with organisations developing leaders, working with teams and helping employees at every level achieve their personal and professional best.
The current economic situation means that companies have to work smarter to achieve their targets and profits. The old ways of working and a top down command and control approach does not lend itself to the agility and flexibility demanded by the global economy. It is essential to cultivate leaders at all levels of the organisation in order to be able to react to rapid change and increasing complexity.
At the same time it is difficult to offer employees the financial incentives of the past. Coaching is one intervention that can improve employee satisfaction, thus leading to improved performance and simultaneously improve the business bottom line.

If you want to be successful and you’re concerned at how you get there…
If you believe that to be truly sustainable we need to consider all aspects of our lives and integrate that into business.
If you believe that if our employees aren’t living and working in sustainable ways that bring them fulfilment that our organisations can’t be sustainable either.
If you believe that business should be a vehicle for fulfilment, soul, creativity, empowerment, personal growth, service and care for others.
Then I would love to work with you. Solutions will be tailored to your specific objectives and requirements and can include group workshops and individual coaching.
