I worked with Sanchia over a number of years on areas ranging from team culture to my own personal and professional development. She has a dynamic personality and is a passionate advocate for learning and development. Of significant note for me was the work we did on improving communications at an exec level where I found her coaching advice and counsel invaluable. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sanchia for any initiative where cultural changes are needed or where management programmes can move your teams forward.

Sanchia and I have had several executive coaching sessions recently, which have been productive and insightful. Her style of coaching has been resulting and outcome-oriented, but light touch and fun. She probes with questioning that makes you think carefully about your objective and is an active listener to the answers given. She summarises well the objective and the suggested path to it.

I worked with Sanchia during her time at Legal & General Investment Management, particularly on leadership and talent development opportunities to support and drive our culture, diversity and inclusion ambitions. Sanchia played a lead role in engaging leadership on the design, development and implementation of programmes which included critical coaching conversations to help business leaders and executive sponsors have the confidence to drive positive change and navigate everyday challenges.  Sanchia brought her coaching style to people leader conversations, helping our leaders explore, feel confident and equipped to lead in a supported environment.
