Prior to founding Brave Conversations, Lesley Roberts spent 16 years with Mars Inc where her career spanned both the commercial and people side of the business. Whilst at Mars she took a sabbatical to raise money for charity, gain perspective, learn about leadership in the extreme and explore her limits. She took part in the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race spending a year at sea crossing the worlds largest oceans. Prior to Mars she worked in the Highlands of Scotland with the charity, Venture Trust. Her role there was to support the personal development of young adults who had been referred to Venture Trust by social workers. Lesley holds an MSc in Executive Coaching from Ashridge Business School.
Lesley wholeheartedly believes in the benefits of working outdoors where possible. Nature offers such value to the coaching experience for both coach and cleint(s) as well as supporting our wellbeing.
How We Work With Clients
We spend time with you diagnosing what the need is. The root cause need, not just the presenting issue. To really make a successful and long lasting change it is important to get this right.
Taking into account the need, the culture and the people, we then work with you to develop the right intervention if it is a team. Or, through coaching we will support your development journey.
Whether it is getting to a valuable outcome from a meeting, having changed a behaviour through coaching or having better trust in a team, we will also support you to create a plan which continues to embed the success.
I believe in life it’s best to be honest and to be yourself. That’s how I work. I bring myself to the relationship. From my website content and pictures you’ll have a sense of me and how I work, if you would like to find out more please get in touch.
