Why work with Dawn?

Credibility

Dawn has been coaching throughout her career, is an accredited professional coach, and NLP practitioner – she is also a member of and accredited by the official coaching bodies: ACCPH, EMCCUK, ANLP, ICF and APC.

Experience

As well as experience as a black female leader, Dawn is a DE&I expert, and senior HR professional having worked as a consultant, trainer and speaker in multiple industries for almost 20 years.  This breadth of experience allows an entirely unique offering to her clients, expertise in what is required and desirable for C-suite and Director level leaders, and how to showcase this in the workplace, whilst also having an expertise in the challenges minority employees face, and that businesses face in trying to address the disparity at board level in relation to underrepresented groups.

Methodology

Dawn’s dynamic, caring and intuitive personality and method of coaching, looks at the bespoke barriers facing underrepresented leaders, and combines immersive mindset techniques, traditional coaching as well as professional skills guidance and mentoring to help her clients navigate bias, micro-aggressions, misogyny, ableism, impostor syndrome, and generational and societal psychological imprints that can impact minority group individuals.

‘During my career, I have been fortunate enough to have had opportunities presented to me, but I didn’t always have the self belief that as a black woman I was being offered these due to my talent or tokenism. Impostor Syndrome led me to doubt whether I really had the ability to embrace the opportunities! I developed Diverse Leaders Coaching, to support the great work organisations are doing to create spaces and open doors to those who are currently underrepresented at executive level. I seek to be the change I want to see in the world, and it is my absolute privilege and honour to be part of helping address disparity for minority leaders in the UK and globally’

Results I have helped create

Hear what clients say about Dawn
"Thank you Dawn. This has been transformational! It’s helping me to be more mindful in difficult situations, but also connect with my strengths. I’ve valued the reframing of some of my insecurities or self-deprecation around race. I’ve found it helpful to have reinforcement of some of my thoughts about what is right/wrong about how myself and others are treated. Overall it’s been helpful to be coached by a black woman on all aspects of my career "
Clarise
Senior Manager
"Dawn is amazing! Definitely ‘holistic’ coaching. My work life balance has improved, and my resilience as a senior female leader navigating the workplace has increased exponentially."
Vanessa
Corporate Leader
"I am very very happy to have been coached by Dawn! It was incredibly helpful I was about to establish a productive way of working and thinking. The fear I had around promotion has completely gone, and I am now actively putting myself forward and being more visible in the workplace."
Zoe
Entrepreneur
"The Diverse Leaders Coach came to do a pilot of 10, potential leaders from diverse groups. The feedback from the cohort has been phenomenal, however we have also seen a great growth in confidence, and better relationships between the employees and senior management. Productivity has been up, and the feeling of inclusion and belonging amongst the group has also increased."
