Meet The Team

Louise Yates PCC, ORSCC, CPCC

Hi, I'm Louise and I'm the founder and lead coach at Clear Perspectives. I've worked for over 20 years in the field of learning and organisational development and now focus on supporting leaders, partnership and teams to be and work at their best, particularly through times of change.

I am fascinated by human systems and feel fortunate to have worked with a diverse range of people and teams from all walks of life. I've worked with financially wealthy and successful entrepreneurs and large corporate organisations through to charities, prisoners and prison officers, church organisations and the NHS. Whilst their backgrounds and ambitions may be very different, the people I work with all have a common desire - to learn, develop and make change happen.

I'm a passionate learner and have invested in my own development. I'm an accredited ICF (International Coach Federation) coach at PCC level, a Certified Organisation and Relationship Systems Coach (ORSCC), a Certified Professional Coactive Coach. I am also a trained Coach Supervisor with the Coach Supervision Academy and community mediator.

I often work in collaboration with with a number of associates, all specialists in their own field.

I live in Lancashire with my husband Paul. Now my daughters are away at uni I find my spare time is divided between my obsession of organic vegetable gardening, cooking for friends and family, cycling and travelling.
