Claire Hyde

Claire has over 20 year’s experience working within generalist, talent and development roles and is passionate about seeing people grow and develop. She works with individuals and groups to increase learning and develop self-awareness which results in higher productivity and performance. Claire also works with clients focusing on career development and shifting priorities.

Her coaching adopts a cognitive behavioural approach exploring self-limiting beliefs and changing patterns of behaviour, which consequently change the outcome for the individual. Within Claire’s coaching there is often the use of tools, for example with the use of Hogan’s to help increase the individual’s self-awareness and understanding.

She has previously supported employees in Senior Management roles and delegates who attend leadership programmes providing 1:1 coaching and supporting triad developmental sessions. These sessions enable learning through gaining an increase in self-awareness and the understanding of previous patterns of behaviour which can then build on confidence and positive self-belief that result in and lead to new behaviours.

Her career to date has been within the luxury retail, hospitality, higher education and utility sectors and her expertise is within HR and Development. Her current role is Head of HR focusing on transformation.

Claire completed the i-coach Academy programme at Senior Practitioner and works as a coach both within and outside her current organisation. She speaks French, has a degree in Hospitality Management and is qualified through the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development. Claire also holds professional certificates in MBTI Step 1, Hogan Personality Inventory, Hogan Development Survey, NEO, 16PF and DISC Personality profiling.

“Claire’s coaching has really allowed me to focus on what is right for me and to identify what stops me from moving forward. I feel I have become much more aware of when my behaviour is adapted to meet the organisations needs as opposed to doing what is right for me. I am now focusing on making decisions for me.”

“My coaching sessions with Claire have made me realise that the only thing stopping me is my own perceptions and self-beliefs and I am now working on changing these so I get even better results.”

“After maternity leave I feel my priorities had changed and Claire enabled me to work out what was important to me and how I could balance my time more effectively between work and family.”

“Claire develops rapport quickly which allows her to challenge and give feedback in a non-threatening way.”
