Clare Gallagher - Managing Director
Clare’s primary interest is the impact of leadership behaviour on the culture and success of an organisation .She has worked with, and challenged, leaders through specific interventions such as: culture change in multi-national organisations, cultural integration in merging organisations, leadership training and executive coaching.
Firmly believing that all leaders have the capacity to perform better, Clare brings a diverse range of tools to help release this potential. Her personal style of support and challenge, when coaching, encourages individuals to develop an understanding which extends beyond their immediate environment
Clare’s own career path reflects her values of continuous improvement and lifelong learning.
Originally trained as a professional engineer, she worked first for ICI in a wide range of line management roles then moved into Zeneca as a senior human resources manager and latterly became an internal consultant in AstraZeneca. She has worked in many different locations including two years in Brazil, as Assistant Works Manager on a Colours Manufacturing Site. This required fluency in Portuguese and the flexibility to adapt to a very different culture in order to be truly effective.
She was runner-up in “Business Woman of the Year”
She has a Post Graduate Diploma in Accounting and Finance, is qualified to Trainer level in NLP, is accredited in MBTI, FIRO-B, and the Human Synergistics range of tools including OCI and LSI.
Helen Chapman - Associate
Helen Chapman is a qualified and accredited psychological coach and trainer. She is passionate about helping leaders and teams to be more effective and resilient in creative and innovative ways. She also likes to keep things as simple and straight forward as possible and ideally fun! Her first booklet 'Being Resilient' beautifully captures her attitude to life and business, 'if we could stand back more often and imagine what a child might say or do, we might cut through some of our business and personal complexity'
Helen has more than 22 years experience in large multinational organisations working in management and leadership roles in functions such as Research, Development, IT, Finance, Information and Knowledge management. She started her life as a bench chemist at Nicholas Laboratories, before moving to ICI and then GSK. At GSK she led multi-national project and programme teams, a consultancy team focusing on driving organisational change and complex international groups before deciding to set up her own coaching and development company.
She splits her time between Yorkshire and Hertfordshire enjoying the balance between the two and is currently working on her next booklet 'Being Effective'.
