Meet The Salary Coach

I work with CEOs, Board Members, Leaders in Industry, Heads of, Business owners, Leaders. Managers and every day workers. What stands out to me is that people are people, everyone has hopes, fears, triumphs and tribulations and I work with people to navigate what that means for them and how to get to where they want. I use my experience in business, as an entrepreneur, inventor, and people and change transformation consultant and advisor as I coach people and really know how to make things happen. I call it a hearts and minds approach. When you know it in your mind and believe it in your heart it will be easier to achieve your goals. I really love the work I do with people as glimmers of understanding and appreciation of their worth are switched on., I see people take steps towards their goals and make their own change happen and that is a wonderful thing.

What learning with The Salary Coach is like

“I have been working in the mining industry for most of my career. Over the course of my career I have been increasingly concerned that I have not been treated fairly compared to my male counterparts in regards to remuneration. We discussed the current market environment, my achievements in the role and my direct and indirect contribution to the business with limited resources. I realised that I has highly undervaluing my work and delivery to the business. This gave me the confidence to move forward with a remuneration negotiation resulting in a 10% increase in base salary and an equivalent increase in bonus, so effectively earning 20% more per year. Catherine helped me understand my value and gave me the confidence in my work performance to ask for an increase in salary to reflect the value I was delivering to the business.”

“Like many ‘glamorous’ industries, the film and television industry is notorious for low pay. So, despite the fact that I’ve been doing this for years, I felt certain that whatever raise I asked for would be shut down. It’s the price you pay for doing a job you love, right? Catherine was able to make me see just how wrong that idea was. Loving your job means you give more and should be paid accordingly. More, not less. Through Catherine’s coaching I was able to build up my confidence in my work and truly understand my value. From there, we came up with a clear game-plan for me to approach my manager with and practised until all angles had been explored. In our meeting, my manager was surprised by my preparation and confidence, and I got the raise I was hoping for – 6%! I never imagined it could feel so easy. Catherine had me so prepared, there was no way I could be nervous. I finally knew what I was really worth to the company, so how could they disagree”

“The Gig Economy is going to need more people like Catherine, so we can all learn how to assess and understand our value in competitive, creative and fluid workplaces of the future. Catherine is an absolute master of her craft. She gets to the core of your beliefs about what you’re worth, and makes it seem so obvious that you are worth more than you imagined. Not only did coaching help me understand my true value, Catherine was also able to show me how to negotiate in difficult situations. I learned new tactics in overcoming the standard. arguments of salary ranges and benchmarking. It’s amazing how quickly being well informed enables you to confidently ask for what you are worth. And to receive what you’re worth.”
