FemaleBreadWinners, led by Dr. Suzanne Doyle-Morris, helps companies retain and develop their valuable, well-trained female executives. We specialise in working with professional women in the male-dominated fields of finance, law, I.T, manufacturing, engineering and the sciences. We provide executive coaching, training workshops and professional speaking for conferences and events. We have worked with clients at the Microsoft, Barclays, Novartis, Sanger Institute, Accenture, UBS, Morgan Stanley, Societe Generale, Thomson Reuters, Accenture, University of Cambridge, Women in Technology, Trinity College Dublin as well as other firms that want to develop their key women.
Attracting and retaining talent is a key challenge for any 21st century organisation. Developing and promoting internal candidates through coaching is massively cost-effective. Because we are specialists in working primarily with women, we understand their challenges and aspirations and can help them grow.
Key Benefits of Coaching
Some of the most commonly cited benefits to organisations that utilise coaching for their staff include:
Visible Increased self-confidence in staff
Higher productivity and profitability
Reduced levels of staff turnover
Greater innovation, creativity and risk-taking
More qualified job applicants for internal job vacancies
FemaleBreadWinners recognises that training staff who fail to progress and replacing employees who leave before fulfilling their potential is time-consuming and expensive. Investing in staff promotion and development through coaching however, is priceless.
Who We Work With
FemaleBreadWinners only works with staff who are seen as potentially having a great future in an organisation. The most successful coaching experiences are always ones where the client is personally eager to learn and develop, rather than going through the motions to fulfil a requirement. We work with organisations that truly want to keep their staff engaged and dedicated because they know that what is good for their employees is good for the bottom line.
We work by helping those who might be prone to circular self-reflection to become more action oriented and those who tend to act spontaneously without thinking through the ramifications of their actions on others to invest time in solutions-focused thinking. Past clients include major universities, large science and technology companies, membership organisations and SME’s, and highly motivated individuals who want to improve their careers and personal lives.
FemaleBreadWinners offers individual coaching and group coaching that helps organisations recruit, retain and promote female professionals. We are objective and offer customised and flexible packages suited to the needs of you and your organisation.
We co-create with the client a confidential relationship based on mutual trust, honesty and integrity. Such a supportive environment enables the client to discuss any perceived weaknesses or failings and then focus on diminishing those self-limiting beliefs while building on the clients’ skills and strengths. The process becomes one of self-awareness, insight, challenge and reframing of outdated and unhelpful perceptions.
Additionally, FemaleBreadWinners is a WEConnect certifed enterprise, which means that it is one of the few companies in the UK that is officially accredited as a woman-owned business which can help your organisation meet targets for increasing diversity in their supply chain.
