My name is Tom White, I'm the founder and coach at Kellenva Coaching.
I have spent the majority of my career working with leaders in an employee owned, people centric business, to develop the skills to be effective in their roles. However, I have found more and more that people's work and private selves are seldom separated completely. This perspective and experience has informed my coaching and facilitation style to work with the person, not the problem. After all, every employee, every leader, every CEO, is a person first.
Coaching and learning more broadly, is an amazing opportunity to increase your awareness of self, those around you and your current situation. With an increased level of awareness comes an increased number of options or choices, which may have seemed unavailable previously. When choices are presented where it has felt like you have none, your ability to act and regain your personal power increases, reinstating you as the captain of your own ship. I coach, as I believe everyone can be the captain, but from time to time a listening ear is required to decide on which course to plot.
My intent is to create relationships based on Trust, Rapport and Safety; the founding principles of my coaching practice. In doing so, I create an environment where clients can be brave, honest, vulnerable, authentic and free from judgement. With these elements present, I believe clients get the most from the experience. I listen intently to what my clients say and don't say and challenge them to think in new ways, gaining new perspectives and awareness. I am fascinated by and help clients to, understand how they think, more so than what they think, bringing unconscious processing into conscious awareness.
My coaching supports clients in understanding their current situation better and creating long term strategies to overcome challenges to achieve their potential and goals in life.
