I founded RWilliamsCoaching to help entrepreneurially minded clients tackle key business issues at times of significant challenge and change. Whether preparing a business or organisation for the challenges of growth, acquisition or culture change or an individual for managing the transition from Founder to CEO or Senior Executive to Partner, I help clients gain the clarity required to tackle professional challenges and deliver improved performance.
My background in Investment Banking, Corporate Restructuring and Strategy Consulting where I advised global companies on key strategy as well as senior roles coaching leaders and teams in the non-profit and Education sectors have informed my ability to coach individuals and organisations to clarity and successful outcomes.
I’ve worked with a range of organisations committed to investing in their people and to building strong, adaptable, inclusive teams and developed and coached on programmes for everyone from development programmes for Senior Leadership Teams to flagship internship programmes.
As a founder myself, I have a strong affinity and experience with founders and founding teams and those who invest in them as they navigate the constant change and challenge which comes with starting and scaling a business. Whether it’s fundraising, building and managing a team, developing key skills, processes and strategy, dealing with the challenges of growth, increasing access and diversity or managing your relationship with your customers and investors, clients have tackled key challenges and taken their businesses and organisations from strength to strength as we’ve worked together. They’ve won awards, grown their revenues, built stronger, more inclusive businesses and found the clarity they need to succeed in ways which align with their integrity and aspirations.
The value I deliver for clients is built on understanding their contexts and helping them to establish clarity around what they want and how to achieve it. This is built on a foundation of trust and collaboration as well as rigorous training and continuous professional development with leading coaching and leadership organisations such as Meyler Campbell, The Academy of Executive Coaching and Full Circle Coaching.
I have been invited to speak on entrepreneurship at the University of Oxford and to current and future female leaders at BroadMinded. I have also been a Guest Lecturer at leading social enterprise, Portobello Business Centre, where I founded and run the Business Coaching Helpdesk providing accessible business coaching to a diverse range of local businesses and social enterprises.
What’s it like to work with me?
I work collaboratively with my clients – onside but outside – bringing support but also challenge and perspective. Our work is intensive – delivering results – but never intense; thought partnership rather than therapy.
