In her team work she is quickly able to identify what is required and translate into practical actions.
"Experience has shown that working on the foundational aspects of the individual and/or team generates the greatest impact. What is their purpose? How are they working together? What is needed to embrace change? What tools/techniques are required for productive conflict? How can they be the agile team they need to be? Is there a gap in leading and managing people? What is human leadership in our VUCA world?" These are just some of the questions that drive Pheona to get to the heart of what will make the biggest difference for her clients.
If we don’t know the final destination -
how will we know we have arrived?
Pheona has a pragmatic psychological approach to all her work which may include using different business and management models, theories, tools, techniques and psychometrics.

“Life is a series of small steps. Let’s start the conversation; identify the growth mindset and behaviours required for success ... and together ... let’s enjoy the small steps. When we look back we will notice small steps that have made giant leaps”
Pragmatic Psychology for Integrated Performance
Often Consultancies and/or Coaches offer a quick fix that sorts out the immediate problem, but the issue keeps re-emerging in the same or different formats. Our approach is to help you leverage the change at the optimum point for meaningful and sustainable change.
Over many years of experience we have developed Signature Models and Approaches to our work and we will use these to explore some of the following areas:
Purpose and core values (individual and/or team and/or organisational)
Motivation and understanding personal drivers
Inner confidence (moving away from fears or imposter syndrome into authentic, resilient, confident authority)
Relationships (empathy, how to understand and communicate effectively with others)
Energy management (understanding your energy, your unconscious communications and how to develop greater gravitas)
How to effectively bring change.
Develop AND implement AND embed ‘Strategies 4 Success’.
These are some of the key differences when working with
We avoid the concept of silver bullets.
Instead we build knowledge and understanding with practical application.
Where the conversation begins

with the following three individual categories:
Optimising Team Performance.
works with Intact and Matrix Teams. We aim to strengthen and develop the team to achieve high performing status. We leverage the collective talents of each individual and in using our Signature Pathway, we tailor the intervention to achieve the results required by the business.
develop Leaders in their Signature Learning Programmes. These bespoke programmes are not one-off events where ‘training and/or facilitation’ takes place, which research has shown often returns a low return on investment. Instead these are learning pathways with high value propositions that result in transformed mindsets (fixed mindset to growth mindset), behaviours and actions that are integrated into their practice, adding immediate value to the business.
is passionate about Supervision and the impact this can have in the coaching profession.
Our work focuses on Coaches who are internal or external to organisations.
EMCC recently released some research findings (Sept 2020): which can be found on our Supervision page. However, the thrust of the research found - Supervision makes a difference to both the Coach, the Client, their business/organisation, and ultimately the Coaching professional as a whole. All systems are impacted by supervision.
Let's be part of this movement and make the investment in YOU and YOUR BUSINESS.
