Erma has an established coaching practice incorporating Ontological coaching with her background in psychology and organisational development to help her clients realise the results and quality of existence they seek in their work and life. Her clients include leaders and their teams – from business owners to executives; CEO’s and their boards.

For her work in organisations, Erma partners with key leaders to:

  • expand their influence and increase their effectiveness
  • improve the productivity, performance and competitive advantage of their business
  • build high performance teams
  • adapt, innovate and build new capabilities to meet challenges and realise opportunities
  • navigate change and make significant transitions to take their business to the next level

This learning partnership involves deep listening and providing perspectives that expand the quality of leaders’ thinking, observation and learning and as a result: the effectiveness of the actions they take – and engagements they have – with their teams, colleagues and stakeholders.

Erma’s coaching with individual clients can also be characterised as a learning partnership through powerful conversations, where Erma applies a flexible and fresh approach to guide her clients in:

  • gaining new insight through skilful observation and reflection
  • acquiring new or improved life and leadership skills and habits
  • tailor-making practices to embody and entrench the resourceful and resilient ways of being that will lead to achieving success and fulfillment in work and life.

The individual coaching could be focused on growth to meet new challenges or opportunities, or alternatively on thinking, reflecting and learning during times of decisions, transitions or complexity. All coaching is goal directed and although creative and personal – firmly grounded in the disciplines and philosophy of ontological coaching, developmental psychology and process oriented leadership.

Erma is married and the mother of two young daughters. She enjoys the challenge of balancing her love for family and friends, with all things creative and musical – and her professional life
