What does Maree bring to her Coaching Practice?
Shortly after I took my first job as an executive, I realised some of my work patterns and ways of relating to colleagues were not serving me well. I was fortunate to obtain some coaching, which as part of my professional learning and development.
It changed my work life for the better. I had so many epiphanies about me and my ways of working, I lost count.
I was not prepared for executive life. I was a good manager, but had never really considered myself a leader. I had a lot to learn, and coaching started me on that journey. As a leader of teams, I decided I wanted to use coaching techniques myself so I gained a qualification. To this, I have added a mediation qualification.
I have now coached many times. I have learned just as much again, about how to give feedback, to change the way people work together, to create a common purpose and help people pursue it.
I will work with you and/or your staff and bring a unique perspective from my experience in the public sector and in health, two extremely complex sectors with demands that not only compete but conflict. I love helping people navigate complexity.
Maree's Worklife and Skills
My working life started with a magpie attack outside Old Parliament House in Canberra. Unexpected things happen in your career, and that was the first of many. The public sector is terrific for sending you down unanticipated paths. I love that.
I am a problem solver at my very core, and the trickier the better. Luckily, the health and human services sector, where I’ve spent my professional life, is full of really knotty problems.
The people in those sectors know where the problems are and usually have a pretty good idea of what they need to do to fix them. But they often lack time, focus and resourcing to unpick the knots.
Those people are their own best resource. I can help to articulate, prioritise and organise what needs to be done.
