Coaching Expertise
What drives Alana as an executive coach is the desire to help individuals find their purpose during periods of transition. She takes a partnership approach to her coaching and understands that each person requires a bespoke and tailored response to their respective coaching needs.
While her coaching has its foundation in a deep understanding of theory and research, Alana also understands the need to listen, empathise and support others in their career transition journeys.
