Sally Learoyd

I’m Sally Learoyd and my passion is helping people achieve greater influence and impact through their work.

It’s a topic that has long been close to my heart. In my own career and through many years’ experience of supporting others, I have seen the difference it can make. For individuals, it allows you to be your best self more of the time, to make a difference and feel more fulfilled in life. For organisations, the gain is the unlocking of talent and the extra contribution this generates.

My track record in business includes delivering step change improvements in the skills of leaders, organisational culture, employee engagement, talent development and succession.

My coaching approach:
