Guiding Performance Success Limited
Guiding Performance Success Ltd was established in 2016 by Julie who is passionate about making a positive difference for individuals, teams and organisations.

Coaching is a developmental approach based on the use of a one-to-one dialogue that aims to produce optimal performance and improvement at work. It focuses on specific skills and goals, although it may also have an impact on an individual’s personal attributes such as social interaction or confidence. The coaching process typically involves 6 one-to-one coaching discussions that take place over a defined period of time as agreed between the Coach and Coachee, and Line Manager where appropriate.
Feedback from relatively recent Coachees include:
"Great relationship with my coach; I really felt like she listened and cared; gave great and relevant advice" – Senior Lecturer in Higher Education
"The monthly or so meetings were brilliant. It was enough time to reflect and implement ideas from the meetings. Julie was brilliant at responding to specific situations or examples from my role and linking them with the broader theory. The summaries in between were excellent and really helpful to keep on track with everything." – Learning Skills Adviser in Higher Education
"I feel that I have become more aware of my own skills, areas for development and have a better understanding of the behaviour of my team. As a result, my behaviour and approach is more confident and assured." – anonymous
"The team dynamics have improved and I feel my increased confidence and understanding of the team has contributed to this. I feel that there has been a positive impact on my effectiveness and my ability to plan and communicate departmental projects and objectives to the team." – Team Leader in Higher Education
"I found the sessions transformative. The impact on my work life balance has been tremendous. I have developed approaches that I apply to working in challenging circumstances with colleagues every day. The impact on my work life balance has also been amazing- having identified alternative approaches and developed skills to deal with situations in a new way has reduced work stress significantly. I am more effective and efficient in dealing with difficult unforeseen issues that arise form a work stand point. But I am also better placed to manage the additional pressures that arise and deal with them without compromising other required activities (both at home and work)." – Senior Registrar in Higher Education
