Coaching and Facilitation

Professional coaching

Build self-awareness and appreciation of your own strengths and those of others you work with. 

Learn how to apply these strengths in your work.

I work with individuals and teams to understand your strengths and weaknesses and how to manage both more effectively.  You’ll build self-awareness and appreciation of your own unique strengths and learn to apply these to your work and life.

This results in improved wellbeing, higher engagement in teams, increased productivity, and collaborative team relationships.

“Strengths develop only in relationship to someone else.” (Donald Clifton)

You either walk inside your story and own it, or you stand outside your story and hustle for your worthiness” Brené Brown

I really enjoyed my five 1:1 coaching sessions with Antonia. She is amazing at asking prompting, thought provoking questions which I absolutely loved. Not only did Antonia ably guide me through a little 'project' that I ended up signing myself up to, she has also equipped me with some helpful tools that I can use in the future. If you are looking to enhance your self-awareness and appreciation of your own unique strengths, I would highly recommend you engage with Antonia!

When people are united in a common goal, the outcome can be amazing. Unlock the collaborative power of teamwork with Antonia's expert guidance. Packed with practical tools and techniques, ‘Team Spirit’ is your recipe for success!I met with Antonia to explore and better understand my Clifton Strengths. I loved the energy and clarity she brought to the coaching session and I got a better feel for how I can really own and develop my strengths and then put them to work for me. I left the session feeling inspired for the next steps; I have taken action and feel more centered regarding my future.

They say when the student is ready the teacher appears. No matter how old, bright, knowledgeable or experienced we are, there are times in life when we feel a little directionless or simply too exhausted to take the next step. I was in that phase not long ago and Antonia appeared out of nowhere! Being a Gallup strengths coach, Antonia helped me find my top strengths and understand my key drivers and behaviours which enthused me to take my next step and also gain insights into how to balance my strengths against each other as well as interact with people with complementary strengths. I had thought I understood my personality very well having been through different assessments. But Antonia’s approach is really different. She really listens without judgement and exudes warmth and enthusiasm and fills you with positive energy. Though young in years, she is very balanced and self aware, which I believe are essential traits of a good coach. I wish her all the best in her coaching career.

This was our second coaching session with Antonia. Our first,when we first started our business almost 5 years ago, completely transformed the way we as a team work and understand each other thus making our workplace harmonious and industrious. Our small business has gone from high demand post covid to a much slower pipeline of business. We turned to Antonia for advice around rethinking and re-energising our business model to work for us. Antonia has completely revolutionised the way we think about our business and boosting revenue, while enjoying our work. In just a short time Antonia coached us to understand what drives us forward, how to plan for success and how to achieve the goals we have set ourselves. Antonia's drive, enthusiasm and joy for what she does directly translates into personalised actions for your team. She asks all the right questions and helps you to succeed as a team, we cannot commend Antonia's skills highly enough.
