Hellen Appleby, Founder - Powerful Growth Group (Executive Coaching & Leadership Development)
Helen works with CEO's and senior leaders to grow their leadership style, build high performing teams, take their career to the next level or design their legacy.
Being senior means that it is so much harder to get the honest feedback that you need to grow. Helen gets honest feedback for her clients and tells them the truth, even if it’s tough, so that they can be grounded in the reality that they need to grow.
Being successful can also be lonely. Helen understands the loneliness of leadership because she has been there. She knows firsthand how it feels to be surrounded by people and still feel alone because there is no-one objective that you can ask. Helen is that confidential, judgement free sounding board for the big vision, the critical decisions, and the highs and the lows on the journey too.
