What people say about us....
Board Director, Global Environmental Charity
"When I was doing my Leadership assessments as part of a new life journey, my experience with Pivotal Moment was truly rewarding. The process involved an earnest and profound endeavour that not only helped me understand my strengths and limitations, but more importantly allowed me to recognise the prospects with which I could assuredly pursue my life goals. My sessions with Claire James/ Pivotal Moment proved to be enjoyable and insightful, and more than ever in my life I was able to see how important it is to cultivate self-awareness, especially in the context of my leadership role in a movement confronting immense global change that presents both daunting challenges and unprecedented possibilities."
James - Managing Director, International Finance, City of London
“I first met Claire James at a time when both the company and industry I worked for were literally being turned on their heads. I was involved in a major company restructuring project which was consuming the majority of my time. Monthly coaching sessions with Claire during this period gave me the opportunity to step back and realise the positive aspects for me personally in what was otherwise a pretty dismal situation. I believe that Claire both boosted my confidence and increased my awareness of the opportunities ahead of me. As a result I went on to assume a senior leadership role within a new company.”
Chris - FTSE 100 Business Development Director and Interim
“Following a successful international corporate career I decided to enter the sole practitioner world as an interim. The start-up went well with interesting and varied work in many different sectors but during a protracted period out of contract I reached a point where I was unsure of the best direction for my business and what my business priorities should be.
Claire helped me achieve clarity and focus in my business strategy by insightful questioning underpinned by solid business judgement. She professionally challenged my thought processes, behaviours and routines and by reducing the complexity of the situation to the key issues. She also helped me identify my key strengths and the value that I bring to my clients. This assisted me in developing a plan and a methodology that works well for me. A hidden benefit of the process was honing my questioning and listening skills coupled with solid measures to improve my productivity.
I would recommend Claire’s professionalism and easy engagement style to any business person undertaking a significant change in their business model.”
Anne – MD, Boutique Confectionery Company
“I have had the pleasure of having Claire as a business mentor/coach for the past year or so. At all times, Claire has managed to be warm, friendly and relaxed yet very professional, intelligent and focused. She has a great ability to ask astute questions, listen intently to your answers and respond with the kind of probing question that gets precisely to the ‘real’ matter underlying your confusion or concerns. The interesting thing was that I was never told what to do, but the path forward was always clearer after one of my sessions with her.
During one of these sessions, I undertook the Six Human Needs assessment, which was insightful and revealed what I ‘need’ in order to feel successful and validated in terms of both my business and my personal life.
I cannot praise Claire highly enough both as a person and as a business professional and would highly recommend her to anyone who is at a crossroads in their life or business and looking for clarity in planning their future.”
Alex - Owner, New Musical Talent Discovery and Showcase
"I run my own music promotion company and sometimes find it confusing choosing the right path to move forward. Somebody suggested Business Coaching which I was initially sceptical about. I was proved wrong. My sessions with Claire James from Pivotal Moment were very inspiring and helped give me clarity to make future plans. It was helpful talking to someone outside of the Music industry who has the experience of dealing with both corporate and small businesses."
Helen - International Development and Partnerships Specialist
"I was introduced to Claire James/Pivotal Moment by a recruitment consultant. I was going through a difficult time professionally and wanted to understand my leadership strengths and weaknesses better. Going through the results of my Hogan ‘Bright Side’ and ‘Dark Side’ assessments with Claire helped me to realize that my work situation at the time was affecting not only my self-confidence but also the natural expression of my personality, and this gave me the push I needed to make a change. Now I am much more self-aware and I am able to match my ambitions with my key character traits to progress my career without compromising my values and beliefs."
