If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go with others (African proverb)
Maverick Minds – Creative Development Coaching programs help individuals, teams and leaders shift their thinking.
Our coaching programs concentrate on how to get clear with your purpose, how to realise your creative potential and then create positive, meaningful and sustainable change.
Creativity is our greatest and most sustainable resource.
It lies at the heart of human endeavour and is a much needed quality and capability for business professionals today. Developing creative confidence is one of the greatest contributions we can give others and ourselves.
Our ability to apply creative thinking and expression in all aspects of our lives equips people with the skills to contribute to the creative and knowledge economies.
Creative coaching encourages business people to use their imagination, engage their natural curiosity, see existing problems in a new light, experiment and test ideas, and apply mixed mediums and interdisciplinary approaches to pursue new ideas and harness their strengths.
Creativity Coaching provides a way for individuals such as creative practitioners, entrepreneurs, business leaders and executives or perhaps groups to bring about positive change to their day-to-day lives.
The program equips people with ideas, methods, strategies and techniques to help design a more meaningful and fruitful future. It concentrates on helping you to define what is important, keeps you focused and encourages creative action.
It provides a space and time for inquiry and reflection.
In a rapidly changing and complex world knowing your creative purpose is essential to a meaningful, sustainable, innovative and prosperous future.
“Cathryn Lloyd is one of those rare gifts that come into your life, if you’re lucky. She is a coach of extraordinary talent, offering an opportunity for insight through her highly honed listening, questioning and synthesising skills which are some of the best I have ever encountered in 25 years of working life. It’s a gift to have an intelligent and wise professional give you their full attention and offer you the opportunity to see yourself and your situation through fresh eyes, and this is the gift that Cathryn’s coaching provides. “
Jill Chivers, Where Corporate Meets Creative
“I was honoured to receive the inaugural DTESB All Star Award in 2016. There were (and are!) so many deserving nominees within the department. It was incredibly meaningful to be recognised for my work, and I thank everyone who nominated me. While the recognition itself was invaluable the award provided me with a budget to attend multiple 1-1 coaching sessions with Cathryn Lloyd from Maverick Minds.
I’ve never worked with a coach before, and now that I have, I highly recommend the experience (and Cathryn). Initially, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I found that Cathryn’s ability to challenge my assumptions and focus my thoughts allowed me to clarify who I want to be as a colleague, supervisor and leader. Working with a coach at a time in my life, turned out to be one of great change—leaving DTESB after 7 years—was powerful, and I will take my “light-bulb moments” with me into my new role. Thank you DTESB for this opportunity!”
