Action Learning is a powerful group problem-solving approach based on the idea that people have an unlimited capacity to learn from experience but a limited capacity to learn from being taught. Action learning promotes fresh thinking and new ways of looking at and dealing with situations and is, as the name suggests, action-orientated.
'I find Catherine extremely attentive in her listening, and the astuteness of her clarifications really resonates this. Her body language and tone reflect a real presence and care with the process, and I greatly appreciate this, and have a strong sense of how she is supporting and holding the group within her attention. This is demonstrated through her gentle pointers to keep us on track both timing-wise and with the stages, we are in. I value how she is listening to the communication of people's body language also and reflects this back.'

Mentoring is about helping people to develop more effectively. It is a relationship designed to build confidence and support the mentee so they are able to take control of their own development and work. Mentoring differs from coaching in that the person acting as a mentor will have expertise and experience that is relevant to the mentee’s professional needs and goals.
'Catherine has been invaluable in my progress professionally and personally and I've come on so far in the short amount of time we've been working together. It has never felt like a mentoring or a coaching session, it always feels like a conversation, a catch up with a friend. She asks all the right questions in a way that never creates pressure or puts you on the spot'
