Sandra Norval: director of sustainability startup

“I set out thinking I was going to focus on building my business, but as the year of coaching played out I experienced a very difficult period in both my personal and business lives. Personal resilience and tenacity, along with the determination to complete my book, emerged as consistent threads. I was at a stage where I was holding myself back, but we worked with the metaphor of water in all its guises to describe my progress and the outcome was transformational. I entered an intense period of high productivity and self-belief, emerging ready to grow my business and my professional standing, with several landmark goals achieved in quick succession. I really hadn’t expected that!”
