About Catriona Patterson
A Scot who has settled in the slightly sunnier climes of Wiltshire. I have worked closely with Executives, Managers and staff for over 2 decades, starting as an HR Generalist in Blue Chip Organisations and more recently specialising in Organisational Development in Local Government. As a result I have a great understanding of individuals and organisations.
On the coaching front I have a proven track record in providing one to one coaching, helping senior managers and leaders develop and take action to achieve their professional and personal goals. Glass ceilings have happily been broken and Inspiring Leadership Awards, awarded as a result!
I’m MCIPD qualified and an Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) qualified Coach. Also an ILM Coaching and Mentoring Tutor. Additionally, I’m a Member of the Southwest Councils Executive Coaching and NHS Southwest Leadership Academy Coaching Pools. And an Associate Executive Coach with Jeremy Gadd Associates. I volunteer as an Association of Coaching Co-Coaching Facilitator. I’ve lectured and mentored at Henley Business School too.
Formally coaching for over ten years, I draw on an ever-growing coaching toolkit which includes; solutions focused, performance, high impact leadership, motivational, systemic, somatic, and well-being coaching. Also, NLP, and related findings from neuroscience and behavioural science.
A firm believer that good People Development isn’t rocket science and that many core principles of good practise can be applied across industries and organisations to create high performing individuals, teams and organisations.
I’m in a transitional phase in my own life right now as my son has gone to university and my daughter is away at 6th form during the week. My husband and I are learning to adjust and appreciate the many opportunities this exciting new phase brings.
Catriona was always available to give me support as well as challenge, and provided guidance when I asked for it.
