However, with a body of practical and applied experience in a range of industries, a consistent theme has been Kristina’s commitment and associated efforts to advancing coaching in these organisations. This has not been without challenge and a lot of learning along the way which she’s been able to take to her subsequent organisations to build an enhanced coaching services offer.

Much of her effort as a senior learning and OD practitioner in the coaching field has been directed at engaging stakeholders and sponsors and creating and managing multi-layered coaching frameworks. Inevitably this has included the identification, recruitment, development and ongoing management and support (CPD/Supervision) of in-house coaches as well as making use of external coaching services where appropriate. Building coaching capability remains a core priority and Kristina is working with others to promote this at all levels of the organisation.
