Ignite Coaching & Consulting Ltd provides HR consultancy, enabling companies to create and implement flexible working strategies that work.
At Ignite we partner with businesses to create the foundations you need to drive business performance through your people. Creating flexibility for all opens up a hidden talent pool, engages your employees, reduces your costs and improves your business performance – it’s a no brainer right? Except its hard to change the way we work. Its hard to truly change the culture of an organisation.
And that’s where we come in.
I’m Nicola Pease, Founder and Director of Ignite Coaching & Consulting. I worked as a global Head of HR responsible for change, leadership, employee engagement, expansion and improving business performance. Over 17 years in HR I have changed cultures, led organisational transformation and helped to create engaging places to work. So, I kind of know my stuff when it comes to change and people.
And I have used my experience and research to develop The Flex Audit which enables you to know exactly what, when and how you can make the changes you need to implement your flexible working strategy.
Flexibility is the future way of working and we can help you get there.
Why am I so passionate about Flexibility?
After being pushed into a role I didn’t want because it ‘suited my childcare arrangements’ and then breaking trying to do it all, I decided enough was enough and set out on a mission to change the way we work because you can have it all, but you can’t do it all at the same time.
And that means we need all workplaces to be flexible for everyone. For me its about balancing motherhood with my career but its just as desirable for everyone – employees want to fit work into their life and not the other way round anymore and, especially after this last year, will actively seek out companies that offer it. Which is why it is so important for companies to adopt flexibility as the norm.
Changing the world of work for women
Hi, I’m Nicola,
I have 17 years’ experience as an HR professional, with expertise in creating and delivering HR strategies to attract, develop and retain talented people who ultimately improve business performance.
More importantly, I’m a mum to two energetic, wonderful boys who have changed my world completely. They have inspired me to pursue my dream of helping people to unlock their potential as a coach and HR consultant. I bring together experience from my professional and personal life to coach parents, leaders and business owners.
I am on a mission to change the world of work. To create a world where you can have the career you want and be a great mum. To promote gender equality and to see more women in leadership positions.
To have this we need flexibility for all.
And that’s why I work with organisations to create that change, to develop their own working environment where flexibility is the norm.
And I work with women to do what they love and have the flexibility they need to be a great parent.
