Book Charmaine Roche, our director and lead coach as a keynote speaker or workshop leader

How I stopped being like Mini the Minx on Speed

When Charmaine met her husband he described her as being like mini the minx on speed. Now, 14 years later,  she speaks with knowledge and passion about the Science and Art of human flourishing as applied to solving the manifestations of stress and anxiety that arise out of the modern-day obsession with performance over being. 

The speed of technological change is challenging our sense of who we are and fracturing our ability to remain connected to each other. She collects evidence of the link between coaching and increased wellbeing which she uses to support her advocacy. She runs workshops alongside keynote presentations.

Mindful-Self Leadership

This workshop shares the accumulated wisdom of 32 years leadership and coaching experience into an illuminating session where participants will leave knowing how to apply restorative techniques to themselves and those they lead. Leadership is defined here as applying to all walks of life where you are responsible for others- CEO, mother, sister, brother, father, friend: we all lead in some area of our lives. Learn to do it better, with greater compassion, mindful attention and improved results.

Flourishing in Leadership and Life

This workshop focuses on the healing and generative function of deep conversations in organisations that want to create positive wellbeing and human flourishing as core to what it does every day. Not as a treat for the workforce to compensate for a toxic environment.

Testimonials

“Charmaine is a truly exceptional coach.”

Jo Elderidge, Deputy Head, The Fernwood School, Nottingham.

“Charmaine has helped me to develop a better understanding of the steps needed to lead on a whole school initiative. The coaching experience had impact on my confidence and ability to lead on a whole school initiative. I think that it would be useful for all new SLT members to be given some developmental coaching such as this.” Leadership Development Coaching

S. Peel, Assistant Head Teacher, Rushcliffe School, October 2016

“My coaching relationship with Charmaine has been both a revelation and life-changing.  Her effect on my life, both at work and at home, has been considerable and lasting. I highly recommend her as a coach.” Executive Life Coaching

Teacher, Fernwood School, Nottingham, March 2016

“One of the best sessions we’ve had.  Charmaine Roche ran an excellent session and we all got something out of it. It was such an open, creative and thought-provoking 3 hours. A huge thank you to Charmaine and all the women who came and made it such an enjoyable experience.” Resilience Workshop

Sonia Long, Rose Associates, CEO, 2016

“The training went really well, I was so pleased that everyone engaged. I feel it has given me the strength to be able to calmly remind the team of what we discussed in the training and put it into practice.” Team Resilience Training

Office Manager, Ellis Guildford School, August 2017

“Working with Charmaine gave us renewed clarity. Having someone who is aware of our roles and responsibilities but does not have all the baggage enables a new set of eyes to observe things that may well be obscured from the team itself. The team coaching was a real insight and thought-provoking, thank you!” Leadership Team Coaching

Steve Lewis, Headteacher, Rushcliffe School Trent Academies Trust, Nottinghamshire, 2017

“I selected Charmaine to be my coach, as I liked the way she said things, and I thought she would challenge me, which was what I wanted.  She suggested a 360-degree feedback exercise, which she conducted and analysed brilliantly well. As a result, I feel that I am more proactive at work, and have learned some great strategies and techniques to help me be more productive which will pay dividends in years to come.” Life Transition and Leadership Development Coaching

Jackie Carpenter, Assistant Director Strategy, Deventio Housing Trust, Derby, 2017

“Charmaine coaching style is direct and to the point. Her feedback was high quality and helpful, better than anything I have experienced in my career so far.  The whole process felt natural. I have gained confidence and resilience, I feel that I am on the right pathway with a sense of direction and alignment. This was a good investment.”

Senior Manager IT industry, Jordon, 2019

“I have worked with Charmaine for 2 years and have gained increased confidence in my ability as a leader. As a coach, Charmaine provides opportunities for deep reflection and learning. You focus on actions and can see the progress. She provided an individualised programme and has the ability to adapt the session as needed to get the maximum benefit out of it for me. I particularly found the use of video (for interview coaching) was powerful. I could see the change as we went through the day as well as feel it. Being able to see me and have the time to reflect on it with the support and challenge of Charmaine was transformative.” Leadership Development Coaching

J Gershwin, Senior Leader, Birmingham, 2018
