Key Competencies
Executive Leadership: I have had opportunity to rally my direct reports around the company vision which inspired those I worked with to participate actively in the attainment of key goals, objectives, and the overall mission.

Organization Development: Both as an employee and now a consultant I have had the privilege of supporting organizations to improve capacity through the alignment of strategy, structure, people, rewards, metrics, and management processes. This I have done at different levels from setting up new processes, developing policies or the setting up and developing of new departments from scratch.

Operations Management: As the General Manager at The Nairobi Women’s Hospital/GVRC. I was involved in overseeing major renovations and launching of services at a new entity. This was a
daunting task because it called for not just having the right hardware and processes in place but also developing a culture that would endear the new entity to clients. The aim was to create the highest level of efficiency possible within the Hospital to not only achieve breakeven faster but to ensure profitability.

Human Resource Management: A highly experienced Human Resources professional, with a record of facilitating profitability through specialist development and running of human resource operations; hands on experience in building and developing top performing teams and setting up HR departments from scratch. Skilled at managing a full spectrum of HR programs, services and functions. Has a keen interest in employment laws, compliance, benefits in both unionized and non-unionized environments.

Coaching: As someone who has been in Human Resources space, I assumed I knew what coaching was and thought I practiced it over the years. However, going through the theory and practice of coaching has now truly equipped me to be a great coach. I now approach coaching from a nonprescriptive approach yet hold clients accountable for what they come up with and commit to do in line with their goals.
