Coaching and Personality Profiling (Facet5)

Are you looking to gain a deeper understanding of how your personality affects how you do your job, how you work alongside others, your motivations, and your levels of personal resilience and wellbeing?
Using the Facet5 personality-profiling tool, I can work with you to help you to understand the strengths of your personality – and how to leverage these – as well as those risks that keep turning up and getting in the way of you realising your potential.

What is a Facet5 profile?
Facet5 is founded on contemporary, trait-based personality theory – making the data credible, robust and reliable. The Facet5 profile provides a ‘snapshot’ of an individual’s personality. A profile details the five major building blocks (the Facet5 factors) of an individual’s personality. These factors are then broken down into 13 sub-factors.

We all have varying amounts of each factor within our personalities – the amount/score will differ depending on our personal preferences and beliefs. It is the pattern of ‘scores’ we see across each of the factors which provides an overall picture of our personality. With this in mind, there is no right or wrong profile. Facet5 is not a test, which you can ‘pass’ or ‘fail’. We call it a personality profile – often referred to by others as an inventory or scale.

How this works

Step 1 – Questionnaire
I will send you a link to an online questionnaire. This has 106 questions and will take you approximately 20 minutes to complete. Your responses are then compared to a group of ‘like’ people (commonly called a norm group). A sten score is calculated for each factor and sub-factor. These scores are then presented in your Facet5 profile report.

Step 2 – Debrief
I will meet you – either in person or via video call – to help you interpret the report. The debrief will take you on a journey of self-discovery where you gain a better understanding of your personal style and behaviours. During this session we can use your profile as the foundation on which to discuss any further personal development needs or challenges you might have and to develop an action plan with tangible goals.

My approach
Fundamental to my approach is listening to the individual I am coaching to gain an understanding of their issues and of what it is they want to achieve. I also encourage and challenge individuals I am coaching and I hold them accountable for making progress towards their goals.

My experience
I am a qualified coach with extensive experience of helping professionals and managers to find solutions to challenging issues such as creating good team dynamics, handling change, dealing with performance issues, or finding strategies for their personal career development or general confidence.

My professional background is in HR, an area in which I have worked for over 20 years. I have been an in-house senior HR practitioner and an employment policy expert for a trade body. I now run my own independent HR consultancy, which offers one-to-one coaching as well as advice to businesses on HR strategy and policy development.

My qualifications
I am a member of the European Mentoring & Coaching Council and have the ILM coaching and mentoring level 5 qualification. I am also an accredited Facet5 practitioner and Facet5 TeamScape coach.

I have a degree in politics from York University and a postgraduate diploma in HR management from Bristol Business School.

Before starting a programme, I have a complimentary 30-minute ‘chemistry’ meeting or call with you to explore what you are looking for from a personality-profiling tool and coaching, to answer any questions you might have, and so that you can assess whether coaching with me is right for you.

I am very flexible about where, when and how I work with those I’m coaching. I’m also happy to meet you out of standard working hours – either earlier or later in the day - to fit in with corporate, family or other commitments.

Optional extras - team profiles
I can also provide the personality-profiling tool and debrief sessions for the individuals you manage so that you can understand the working dynamics of your team and identify opportunities for wider team development and improvement. There would be a further charge for this but a discount will be applied for a bulk booking.
