I am Charlotte 
a level 7 CMI accredited coach, strengths practitioner, Mental Health First Aider and Talent Consultantthe face behind Power of the Parent®

I work with businesses to attract, retain, develop and support parents in the workplace. Whether that’s helping people prepare for parental leave, getting creative about maintaining contact during leave, setting up a strong return or more broadly looking at how you can create an environment where parents can bring their whole selves to the workplace, Power of the Parent® can help.

When I returned to work after having my children, I was hit by a negative narrative facing many parents in the workplace. Whilst some of the cliches are there for a reason, I knew that although I felt at my most vulnerable and like I’d lost some of who I was pre-kids, I also felt at my strongest. I was taking so much more to my employer and my team, and so began my mission to help parents reconnect with their unique set of strengths and to work with businesses to shake up how their employees, who happen to be parents, are supported.

My 12 year corporate career has been in HR, largely Talent Management and Learning and Development. I love helping others be at their best (which is where the strengths coaching comes in) and I pride myself on having a creative but practical approach to support my clients unlock new ways of thinking.
