Our lead coach and facilitator is Amy Reynolds. Amy is a specialist in team performance, enabling teams to reach their potential. By enabling individuals to develop their self-awareness and understanding of their preferences, she then identifies how this impacts the team dynamics. Her experience supports teams who are looking to improve communication; going through periods of change; newly formed teams; and established teams looking to maintain their edge and engagement. She has also worked with a range of people on a 1:1 basis to help them to take positive strides forward to where they want to be in both their career and life.
Amy has a commercial background having worked in a variety of senior banking roles in The City for almost a decade, most recently as a Chief Operating Officer. This has given her first hand experience of teams working through significant change and ambiguity whilst needing to maintain their commercial edge. Throughout her senior business career, she acted as a sounding board, coach and advisor to senior staff. Sensitive to corporate politics, Amy is an astute observer of top team dynamics, who acts with unwavering professional integrity and inspires trust – the “point person” with whom senior executives formulate and rehearse their own narratives, questions and responses. She brings candid challenge to decision-making amongst senior teams, builds trust and brings authenticity to discussions.
Alongside this corporate experience, Amy is also an experienced Insights Discovery practitioner, accredited for over 6 years and qualified to deliver DISC personality profiles. She has a First in Economics from The University of Exeter and is a qualified coach, with a Diploma in Personal Performance Coaching, recognised by the International Coaching Federation.
Amy’s enthusiasm and sense of fun comes through in the delivery of her programmes, which she balances with a pragmatic and sensitive approach. She is committed to ensuring that those she works with leave with a renewed spring in their step and some tangible actions they can take forward to enhance how they deal with colleagues, stakeholders and customers.
