MY Coaching & Consulting

About

I’m Michelle Yeoman, Company Director of MY Coaching and Consulting, qualified executive coach and former HR Director, with a 20-year HR career in the professional services, consulting engineering and pharmaceutical industries.

Michelle Yeoman

I qualified with the Academy of Executive Coaching and my coaching practice spans senior leaders, technical experts, managers and private clients. My early HR career was spent in London, with roles consistently increasing in scope and responsibility and my HR Director role prior to taking the leap into self-employment was achieved aged just 32 and with 2 preschool aged children. I’ve led and participated in large scale change, coaching, leadership development, talent management and organisational effectiveness programmes as well as all the ‘bread and butter’ HR activities. I’ve been a leadership team member, HR site lead, people manager and confidante – building strong relationships and delivering to exceptionally high standards.

I can help you to create your ‘best’ self…

My coaching focus is on you as a leader creating your ‘best’ self. I care passionately about you achieving your potential. Whether it’s progressing to the next stage in your career, moving your business forward or transitioning in your career (redundancy, retirement, returning to work following a break), you can become personally and professionally fulfilled through working with me.

…enable you to have clarity, courage and drive in your life…

Personally, I have clarity, courage and drive in life. That’s not to say that’s always been the case. There are countless times I have doubted myself and my ability to deliver. To be that person, that leader, that parent that everyone wants me to be. Setting such high expectations of myself that I was often feeling exhausted, like a hamster on a wheel desperately trying not to fall off!

In 2018 I knew I needed to make some changes, so whilst leading on an organisational change programme, I embarked on a leadership coaching programme and in parallel, studied and became qualified as an executive coach. I took redundancy as an opportunity to leave the corporate world and set up my own business. It meant more flexibility to be with my children and do what I loved – to help people to grow, develop and aspire.

Not one to do change in half measure, I also moved house, embarked on a major renovation project and ran my first retreat programme. The hamster wheel sped up, but it was moving myself and my family in a very positive direction. I was high on life! Then burnout struck. My mind and body were frazzled and it forced me to take some time out.

After months of healing, reflecting and rewiring – I realised the only expectations I wasn’t delivering on was my own. Self care became critical. I re-evaluated my values and identified my true purpose. I’d spent years fighting ‘imposter syndrome’ and had to learn how to adjust the volume on my inner voice. I learnt how to trust myself, my own judgement and focus on what makes me my ‘best self’.

…and serve as your ideal partner for coaching or HR partnership.

I’m a working mother of 2 energetic boys, adept in juggling a demanding career with family. A lifelong learner, I’m driven, self-motivated, organised and empathetic. I love to be active, both physically and mentally – taking to putting on my trainers for a run to process the day or reading something new in pursuit of my own and others development.

I help leaders through coaching and HR consultancy to grow, develop and aspire. To be their ‘best self’. To identify their true purpose and life by it.

The mix of my professional credentials and having ‘been there’ makes me your ideal partner. For coaching or HR partnership to work though, we’d have to agree we are a good match. With my ability to build trust and rapport quickly, we’ll soon know if we can collectively get results. And it goes without saying that after years in HR, discretion and confidentiality is top of the agenda.

Whilst I am based in East Kent, location is not an issue. Coaching works effectively via mobile and by Skype (video and audio) so no matter where in the world you are, we can work together. Skype video and voice calls are free. I can also coach in person at various locations in Kent and London.
