Claire Pedrick, MCC

Claire PedrickAt its heart, coaching is simple. Working that simply isn’t easy, and when managers and leaders are going to take coaching into their organizations, there’s some unlearning to be done.

Coaching isn’t simply about a regular defined conversation sat in a private room. It can be used at the water cooler and by a coffee machine and organizations can be transformed as people learn to take responsibility for their own learning through giving and receiving powerful conversations.

Claire has been coaching for her entire career – starting in a non-profit coaching people who wanted to work in international development, and for the last 18 years heading up a coaching company in the UK that focuses on developing coaching in the workplace. Trained at Coach U in the late 1990s, Claire is also an accredited Coaching Supervisor and supervises and develops coaches to work in their own organizations including the health service and the church.

She is in demand as an executive coach, coaching supervisor and mentor and as a trainer. She works by enabling powerful conversations, taking you to the heart of issues and enabling you to achieve transformational change in the context of your organization. This process enables and supports you to do the thinking you need to do. It is often challenging, and Claire uses simple questions that respect your world without allowing you to avoid difficult topics or insights. The feedback she receives confirms that she is able to provide more help in 10 minutes than many have received through months or years of other interventions.
