An award winning Mentor, Coach, Trainer and Author, Claudia Crawley has a longstanding commitment to the promotion of Diversity and Inclusivity gained in a career managing diverse groups of women in complex organisations within criminal justice and social work sectors. This commitment equipped her with the knowledge and skills to become a coach for women.
In 2010, she founded Winning Pathways Coaching and has since worked with numerous organisations including the Electoral Commission, Hertfordshire County Council, Peterborough City Council, Unison, NSPCC, NHS England. Her work reflects a demonstrable track record of enabling women managers, particularly social work managers, to deal with challenges that may be too sensitive to be dealt with in-house, to regain their confidence and resume leading effectively.
As an accredited master coach, Claudia uses an effective coaching strategy that enables coachees to take responsibility for their performance, get motivated and achieve powerful outcomes that benefit both them and the organisation.
She has also been a mentor for the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women, assisting women business owners internationally to develop, lead and thrive. And she was awarded mentor of the year in 2017 at City, University of London.
Claudia says: ‘From experience, I’ve found that women managers, at both middle and senior management levels, facing overly demanding circumstances that have undermined their self-confidence, often lose their sense of self as leaders. I aim to support them to regain self-belief and confidence in their abilities’.
When not coaching, Claudia is a budding stand-up comedian who uses the power of laughter to educate and raise awareness. She is the author of ‘Ordinary Women Doing Extraordinary Things: 5 Steps to add Extra to Ordinary’
