What People Say
'Leela is like no one else I’ve ever met, she’s quite simply brilliant.
She is a unique blend of creativity, intuition and smarts.
Her crystal clear ideas process took me on an amazing colourful journey
starting from a spark of an idea and ending with a fully formed concept and business plan.
Like a spiral, Leela’s questions led me deep into the core of the idea.
One of the keys of the process is the visual map, of the conversation, that Leela creates during the session.
This map helped me link things together differently, see new possibilities and ultimately come up with a better concept.'
'How to describe working with Leela Grace?! Imagine the most creative, boundary-less brain, inside a whole-hearted human with a deep deep curiosity and care. And then add in a large dose of systemic and organizational nouse, and relaxed confidence with the senior leaders in any organization you like.
I am excited to work with Leela Grace to work out what is really really going on in a business or in a scenario, using the most creative and innovative diagnostic methods you can imagine (or can’t imagine..) Leela is brave in saying she sees the world differently and what an incredible perspective you will gain if you listen up.'
'I would love to thank you cordially for your wonderful support that you offer in our sessions. You offer a space of total allowance which gives my hidden and deeply emotional parts the opportunity to show up and are seen. That is such a blessing and gift for me as I hardly touch these parts in my day to day life. I feel so deeply seen in these sessions with you and much more complete as I learn to sense and acknowledge all parts of me through our work together.'
Esther - Project Manager
'I came to Leela after my organisation saw a series of unexpected changes in resources, size, and leadership; as a constant in the changing organisation, I felt overburdened with responsibility and workload and worried about the outlook of my organisation and my own wellbeing.
Over 6 sessions Leela has helped me strengthen my own resilience and that of my team. Through talking to Leela I have learnt to reflect on, and have been empowered to address, challenges at work related to people, place and policies.
My awareness and application of my own strengths has increased substantially; 6 months on and I have now instigated a team resilience programme, tackled performance-related issues across my team, supported others struggling with change management, and most importantly have a confidence in myself to continue navigating us through the growth of my organisation.
Leela provided me with the tools and the space to become a resilient leader and I would recommend her to anyone wanting to strengthen their people management and adaptive capacities, or simply wanting to think through everyday challenges such as work-life balance.'
Lucy - Global Programme Manager
'Leela created a series of illustrations capturing the main findings of our Humanitarian Accountability Report. We really liked the spirit of co-creation in which we worked together. She accompanied us throughout the process, helping us articulate our key messages at every stage.'
Ann - Communications Manager
'Leela is utterly unique.. I know no-one else quite like her; each time we meet or work together, the experience leaves me inspired.
She is so giving of her knowledge, her energy and the unparalleled authenticity that I find myself - as a storyteller - short for words.
Wise enough to know her limitations.. Leela is a firebrand, a soul-counsellor and superlatives aside, a great person to work with.'
Martin Deakin - Senior Comms / Engagement Professional
‘A creative and resourceful coach, Leela is very thorough and helps you to see all possibilities related to your potential.
Leela helped me define my coaching profile, which has given me and my clients clarity about what it is that I can do best for them.'
Edson Williams - Coach & Creative Agency CEO
“Leela is a joy to work with. A high spirit and drive are allied to a thoughtful planned approach and she is always looking for more. More aspects, more avenues and especially more marketing directions. She worked on a wellbeing project with me and I would have never got it up and running without her.”
Brent Curless - Entrepreneur
‘Your coaching has the style that suits me: suggestive, experimental, visual and compact. Thank you for your listening, creativity and knowledge all in a realm of authenticity and potency. What I got out of our sessions was the opportunity to create new out of chaos. To create future out of things that were ending.
To give a new meaning to ambition.'
Annemieke Jonas Entrepreneur
'Thank you again so much for today. Phew! So many things were good I shouldn't start listing them - save that for the follow up debrief call, but I do want to say thank you for staying calm around the curve ball! And also thank you for saying that I had useful insights and intuitions that helped. I thought I did, but no-one has acknowledged it before.'
Alison - Director
'With Leela's coaching, I was able to transform my attitude and therefore my ability to deal with a highly stressful situation..... I was also hoping that I could just focus on work and avoid dealing with the challenges in my personal life, but actually, I've come to realise that it's unavoidable.'
