COMPASSIONATE LEADERS BY HAYLEY GILLARD
We help people feel confident at work
Confident Leadership is Compassionate Leadership
Empathy, compassion and kindness are essential leadership traits, yet so many people like you worry that in order to be a confident leader with impact and gravitas, you would have to sell your soul and become hard and nasty.
The best leaders are compassionate. They care about their staff, their impact on the world and know that their own wellbeing is important too. We help leaders and aspiring leaders overcome feeling nervous managing staff, tackle awkward conversations and chair meetings with confidence – through coaching, workshops & programmes.
As well as being qualified, insured and accredited in Leadership Management and Performance Coaching, I’m also honest, straight-talking, energetic and friendly!
Inequality makes me angry and I’m a huge advocate for opportunities for women in senior management.
Compassion makes me happy and I geek out on facts and figures in research that looks at why being nice is better for business.
What We Do
Coaching will help you to work on your personal confidence struggles on a one to one basis. Perhaps you want to learn to motivate your team better, overcome a current business challenge or achieve a promotion you keep being overlooked for… one to one coaching could be for you.
Want to develop your team? Have staff you know could achieve great things? Want to bring a more compassionate approach to how it’s currently done? In-house training in leadership development, employee engagement and wellbeing are a great cost-effective way to grow your greatest asset.
Workshops & Speaking
Confidence is a skill you can learn, not something you are born with and in an hour or two I can deliver life-changing workshops at your event or workplace. Staff will leave with practical tools and techniques that will have immediate impact on how confident and compassionate they are at work.
Hayley is an exceptional coach and mentor. I started to work with her when I felt, as a business owner, I needed some development of my own and a sounding board to help me find my own path, explore options and make decisions that were right for me. Hayley helped me to do all of this. She is flexible, friendly and I find her inspiring to work with. I end all of our coaching sessions with energy and vigour. She helps me to devote time to myself and to my business which is invaluable for work and life balance. I cannot recommend her highly enough
Kate Krachai – Instead Consulting
Thank you so much for helping me find the confidence to be me, guilt free. At the end of each session I think... That's definitely it now, I'm totally full of confidence, there's nothing more to learn. Life is fantastic! And yet... I learn something new about myself the next time and life is even better once more! My perspective always looks even brighter and challenges even lighter after we speak. Everyone should have a Hayley in their life! You're exceptional. Thank you.

Hayley has been described as "warm" and she really is a lovely and energetic person. Don't mistake warmth for fluffiness though, as she knows how to challenge you, challenge your thinking and your actions. It is this great combination of her personality and skill as a coach that makes her someone I would strongly recommend.
Sarah Shay – Consultant
I’m really lucky to have such a great coach – the support Hayley has given me has helped me tackle my fears and overcome them. I genuinely wouldn’t have a mailing list, blog, podcast or textbook if I hadn’t worked with her (which essentially means I wouldn’t have a business!) And… she’s doing a leadership course with WISH – I cannot think of a better collaboration!
Whilst I was hesitant about opening up about things that are personal to me with people I didn’t know in Group Coaching, I am now more confident and approach things in a much better way. I have already recommended you to fellow colleagues and friends as I really think they would benefit as you are such a good coach.
It was amazing to see you speaking and it has really inspired me. The reading list you recommended was excellent. I’ve struggled with my confidence, particularly during lockdown, and am slowly building myself back up. I’m making more decisions, increasing my resilience and my self-perception is on the up! I can’t thank you enough.
