Lisa Robyn Wood Bio
The Middle Manager Coach GRIP Coaching Limited –
I grew my career within the energy sector, enjoying several management positions across a range of departments including customer services, process improvement, contract management, and finance, before being promoted to a senior middle management role within metering operations. This promotion triggered imposter syndrome which motivated me to employ a personal coach.
Coaching reconnected me with my confidence, self-belief, and value, and this strengthened relationship with myself enabled me to progress my career into areas I would not have felt capable of attempting prior to my experience. It is this power that I’m on a mission to share with as many managers and leaders as I can in my own coaching practice as The Middle Manager Coach.
I don’t think being a manager should be shit and so I work with middle managers, who work in the most pressured and conflicted layer in any business, to embrace their roles with energy and enjoyment, to get a grip of their personal development and growth, and connect with their confidence and capabilities, to ensure that they thrive and don’t get caught in the crap trap.
I help individuals and organisations to make effective and healthy management a reality for themselves, their people, and their business, by providing 1-2-1 coaching and training for their middle managers and teams.
I have been privileged to work with multiple managers and leaders across a range of organisations, including Suntory, HSBC, Camelot, Burberry, and Swarovski, as well as small businesses and entrepreneurs.
I’m qualified in Corporate & Executive Coaching, Personal Performance Coaching, NLP, and DISC; all through The Coaching Academy and with each diploma accredited by the ICF.
I split my time between The Cotswolds in the UK and Cape Town in South Africa with my husband Dom and our Springer Spaniel Alfie.
About Kath Clarke, Founder & CEO BlckBx
Kath is the founder of BlckBx, a personal assistant platform with the mission of leveling the playing field for women in the workplace.
Prior to BlckBx which she launched 3 years ago, Kath was founder and MD of Rosier Consulting which she ran for 10 years where she led marketing and service optimisation projects at global telecoms and technology brands.
She headed up marketing at global US technology provider NeuStar for 4 years and left the corporate world to set up on her own as it was impossible juggling family and a career when there was no flexible working, no support for working parents and people worked like they didn’t have caring responsibilities outside of work.
The seed for BlckBx started there when her generation started having children and she saw her female friends dropping out of the workforce without any other option and decided this needed to change. On a mission to break the system and re-build it so that working parents, care-givers and particularly women can thrive in a workplace which has been designed for men as the breadwinner and women as the care-giver.
BlckBx wants to be part of the fabric of every business in the world to support everyone so they can thrive, attain their career goals and never feel held back just because they decide to have a family.
