About Me

emmy-yeadon

In 2001 my husband and I launched our new business and in the 10 years that followed my introduction to leadership and staff management was both immediate and all encompassing. As a working Mum with a young family and a growing business, I wish I’d had then the skills that I have now. This is one of the reasons why I find so much satisfaction from working as a Coach and Facilitator with Business Leaders and their Teams, I have personal experience of many of the issues you are going through.

Who are my clients?

  • Business Owners, Managers and Team Leaders; from both the corporate and Not for Profit arenas.
  • I have worked with Princes Trust Senior Managers as part of a Coaching Pilot in 2013 (and continue to do so).
  • I very much enjoy working with schools, specializing in; Executive Coaching and Team Development programmes for Head Teachers, Senior Leaders and other key teams in school.

My coaching journey

After training with The Coaching Academy in 5 different areas, (from Corporate and Executive to Youth and Parent Coaching) I qualified as a Business and Life Development Coach in 2009, with a ‘distinction’ in Personal Development Coaching

I then became a Course Manager for their 2-day public events, whilst also working with my own clients.

Following my Graduate Coaching & Mentoring and Equine Facilitated Coaching qualification with Learning to Listen in 2013, I joined their team as their Corporate and Team Development Manager.

I was also a keen volunteer with their sister ‘Autism Angels’ charity, and shared some amazing experiences with professional teams  & Coaches and young people on the autistic spectrum and their families.
