Maya’s coaching results

Career Transition: “I have turned to Maya’s superb coaching skills on more than one occasion and at various career transitions.Initially, I had no idea of how coaching worked or what the outcome would be but I knew I needed a reasoned, objective voice and some guidance. Maya’s coaching style is to constantly ask questions to help work through the issues; she listens exceptionally well, can cut through the noise and hone in on the issues that might be hindering progress or frustrating certain decisions being made.

She greatly assisted me in my job search in 2010 and then again in 2012 when I decided to make the move of leaving the corporate world and setting up my own business venture. She has a natural ability to facilitate an engaging and thought provoking session that always left me feeling confident about the next steps. The clarity she provides has been invaluable. Maya is a role model, she lives and breathes the ambitious approach that she inspires in her coaching. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to take their life or career to the next level. Thank you !” Founder, Aartizen

Difficult career choices: “Our last week’s session was amazing, I really thought it has helped me in confirming that I am doing the right thing albeit it isn’t the easiest thing to do. It has definitely also helped me to understand that in order to make the right decision in terms of career move, I first need to get away and give myself some time to understand what I really want”. Senior Trader, Deutsche Bank

Considering career options: “If I hadn’t seen Maya I may never have come to take the significant step of starting my own business, Peak Films. I was at an important juncture and Maya helped me to articulate my professional and personal aims and to approach them holistically. I value Maya’s insightful rigour, with which she helps you to analyse situations. We even visualised ambitious revenue targets and I was surprised to see that the company met them in the first year. I have never looked back. If you are facing similar dilemmas – go and see Maya. I certainly plan to keep going back.” Zara, Documentary Film Director (twitter.com/zarhayes) and owner of Peak films, a film production company.

Turning dreams into reality: It’s funny, because about a month ago I came over the email you sent me when we were having our sessions and I read through it. Most of what I had imagined is actually coming true, I am settling down, investing in furniture and a more settled life and the job seems to be working out too. In the job I get to have customer contact, travel and because the organisation is under serious restructuring I get to improve things too! These were all points we spoke about that were important to me!

Everything is coming along …when I reread your notes it made me realise how well everything is coming along. Subconsiously the sessions have helped me a great deal and life is going the way I wanted it to. Thank you so much… although the sessions were absorbing and challenging at times, I really benefitted from them. Rita, Senior Investment Banker

Better results, less stress: “I started seeing Maya for coaching at a time when I felt my working day was suffering from huge time pressure: too much time on operations, insufficient focus on strategy. It is now a year on, and my working week is vastly improved: I am in the classroom just as much (this is why Quartic exists!), but office time is much more productive, I control my e-mails (not vice versa), and most operational management tasks have been delegated. Maya was instrumental in helping me to visualise the improvements and the sessions were a thoroughly useful investment.” Nick Blain MA FCA FCSI CFA, Chief Executive, Quartic Training quartic-training.co.uk

Business growth: “Since we met we have hired two new people and we hope to double our turnover this year. I have your wheel by my desk and I look at every morning! We found it very useful and inspiring to talk to you. I think anyone starting out in business should know about your services.” People in Production, fast growing media recruitment business (wearepip.com)

Team motivation: We worked with Maya on small group sessions for the co-founders and to offer 1 to 1 coaching sessions across the business. Uptake was very high and feedback was unanimously positive. Maya’s strength is in her ability to strike a careful balance between the soft and the hard: she makes people feel comfortable and helps them open up whilst challenging them and focusing on outcomes that are meaningful for the individual AND good for the business. …when can we book the next round?

Turning dreams into reality: “You really helped clarify a few issues for me, and it has certainly brought me up towards an 9/10 when we refer back to the 1-10 scale regarding the issue we discussed at our last session…I would say that the ideal scenario we talked through at that time is now in full swing. Once again, I have to thank you for your help in moving me through a difficult transition period for me, I think you can probably tick the box marked “extremely successful outcome” with regards to this coaching!” Dr Sam, Associate Professor in Pharmacy, Head of Pharmacy, University of Reading Teaching Fellow

Peak performance in leadership roles: “I approached Maya as a newly promoted Director. I wanted to ensure we had the resources to deliver our strategy and help the team I now manage meet their potential. Maya helped me on all of the above. She is quick thinking and has lived it herself too, but still allowed me to come to my own conclusions. I highly recommend her”. Rachel, Executive Director, Royal Society of Literature

Communicating with influence: “In our recent session, you helped me unlock an entirely new language for communicating as a leader. I had been getting stuck trying to ‘tell’ people to do things, and I needed new strategies to bring people with me and deliver results, particularly when they are managing the Moroccan operations and I am here in the UK, and there are gender and age biases working against me there. You are so committed to helping me perform at my best, I know you always want me to shine, so when you challenge me in the sessions I am open and ready for it!” Salma, Social Entrepreneur

Life planning: I have found my sessions with Maya extremely helpful. She quickly understands the issues I want to discuss and is able to help me organise these into a clear and useful framework. she has a very warm, approachable and non judgemental manner which she combines with challenging and perceptive questions. this has allowed me to find new and better ways of approaching situations. I find that maya’s sessions have given me practical solutions which I have been able to put into practice in the long as well as the short term. Psychiatrist, BSc 1st Class Hons in Psychology & Cognitive Neuroscience, MBBS, MRCPsych.

Confidence: “Signing up to Maya’s coaching sessions couldn’t have come at a better time for me: I was in-between positions, about to make a big leap and needed all the business ‘umph’ that I could get. I felt the sessions built up my confidence to the level I needed and gave me a clear mental focus; I was empowered to positively progress, effectively build on my experience and work around any obstacles in my way. Maya has a coaching style that allows you to get a lot off your chest but she won’t let you off easily, leading with a clear, controlled structure towards realistic action orientated goals that force you to make a difference. If you would like a good listener who can also give you clarity and useful little tools to help you navigate your own behaviour at work and beyond in order to make full use of your potential and drive success – go see Maya! I have again, and again.” Freelance consultant and design specialist

Relationships: My partner is so happy since we talked! We had a good talk about the possible strategies you and I agreed. He was so positive after. We talked through the impending foreseeable stresses and how to manage them. Thanks so much, the session was so helpful . Lots of very helpful things put into practice so far . You are extremely perceptive and have such a good understanding of people and relationships! Instead of me thinking ‘I must try harder’, you have changed it to ‘we must both allow ourselves to..’ – game changer! Anon
