Whether you, or one of your team, needs coaching, mentoring or other developmental support, we can help. We have experience of coaching individuals, line managers and senior leaders; providing mentoring to other HR professionals and line managers; and providing career development and interview preparation advice and guidance.
Using a tried and tested approach, we work in real time, with you and your team, either at start-up, refresh or close down and handover to ensure that you meet your operational and strategic goals. Setting out the five conditions that leaders need to make their team effective and sustainable, we help you to avoid the common errors and pitfalls that stop you from succeeding.
To be the leader your organisational really deserves takes effort. We work with you to develop your ‘brand’, to understand how you work, how your values and beliefs impact on your performance and how you can become the leader you deserve to be. Using a range of tools and techniques, we help you to develop your ‘leadership self-awareness’ and then we work with you to maximise your strengths and create a plan for your future leadership development.
New to a leadership role? A tried and tested leader in need of a refresh? Executive coaching provides you with the objective challenge and support from an independent thought partner that helps you to think through your future strategy. In addition to one-to-one coaching sessions, you will have the option to undertake 360-degree feedback or take up the option of a facilitated new leader assimilation for your team.
Whatever the challenge facing your organisation: growing, contracting, refocusing, we have over 50 years combined experience in managing organisational change. Whether you need help building your business case; designing your new organisation; or selecting the team for the future, we can partner with you to make this happen.

director and founder
As its founder, Lisa is the beating heart of The Resourceful Partnership. With over 25 years’ experience of working for and with large world-class organisations including FTSE Top 100 companies, SME’s and organisations in the UK’s not-for-profit sector. Lisa is an inspirational coach and mentor, and demonstrates her resourcefulness through her creative and innovative approach to developing solutions.
Paula is a senior leader who knows and understands the corporate world. I am now a consultant and work with the Resourceful Partnership as a leadership coach and team effectiveness facilitator. I am passionate about people and serving them to be the best that they can be, as individuals, and within teams.
Karen supports our business operations. She is a PR and communication specialist and a Chartered Member of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations.
With a unique ability to blend objective and analytical decision making with intuition and an understanding of people, we are an organisation strongly driven by our values:
We believe in treating people how they would like to be treated. For us, this means taking the time to understand each individual, their skills, working preferences and learning styles. At an organisational level, respect means taking the time to understand the history, purpose and culture of each business and tailoring our approach accordingly.
For us, this means doing the right thing by ourselves and the people we work with.
Resourceful partnerships can only flourish where there is absolute trust. Trust means we value a straightforward and honest approach, with no hidden agenda. It also means having each other’s back, even when things don’t go according to plan.
All the partners of the Resourceful Partnership pride themselves on their resourcefulness in solving client problems and issues. If we can’t help directly, we always have someone in our network who can.
To us, learning is everything. The day we stop learning is the day we die. Learning signifies growth, potential and opportunity, and we believe learning comes from the things that go well and the things that go less than perfectly.
