Red Tin Shed
At Red Tin Shed, we apply over 30 year’s experience in HR, Organisational Development and Change Management strategy to align your business and people.
Red Tin Shed is the name of a boutique winery in regional Victoria, the namesake of Geraldine Coy’s consulting practice. It depicts the love of good wine, extraordinary food, and the real value of life in family, friends and community. The shed signifies an embrace for hard work and the well earned results of effort in self reflection and learning.
Across her career, Geraldine has coached Middle and Senior management executives in career management, leadership development, teamwork, project management, communication strategy, change management and strategic negotiation.
An expert in managing diversity, engaging employees in organizational strategy, Geraldine is passionate about developing authentic leadership with the capability to drive focused outcomes. Having always worked in a culture of achievement, Geraldine has a proven track record of delivering measurable results.
Geraldine brings energy and fortitude to individuals and teams and through her own life journey, compassion and a deep understanding of values in practice.
I understand that leadership characteristics have achievement outcomes based on the strength of individuals to work with flexibility.
I have been working in the field of emotional intelligence with Daniel Goleman’s inspirational studies of self awareness, self regulation, self motivation, social awareness and social skills development throughout my career, and have the deepest respect for its value in the privilege of leadership.
I aim to work with leaders who recognize that to drive sustainable transformation, there needs to be an investment and commitment to sponsoring change in leadership by leadership.
It’s important for the business to understand how the coaching or consultation is going to benefit the business.
Similarly, it’s important for the coachee to feel safe, and that there’s a compatibility with their coach/consultant in rapport and trust that there’s something to be learned with the coach/consultant.
In the contracting phase I would:
- meet with you to understand what the business needs for the individual(s) or team(s) are. I would look for Key Performance Indicators which you would measure against the performance of the individual(s) or team(s) at that point and an agreed point in the future, which would demonstrate a measured improvement.
- meet with the individual(s) or team(s) to assess reflective touch points and to extend the awareness of the organisational needs to ensure that we work toward measurable goals.
- Our team had the opportunity to play Brave Truth the Game with Geraldine Coy herself as our facilitator. It is amazing how the design of this game enables members of a team to share and respond to matters, which go below the layer of day to day interactions. For our team this led to a fruitful dialogue, at a level we had not reached before. The self directed process and playful nature of the game ensures that the game play stays at a level that is positive for all team members.I strongly recommend Brave Truth the Game to teams of which the members have an ambition to learn more about others, and themselves.
- I recently had the pleasure of hearing Geraldine Coy speak at my Probus Club (Healesville Ladies). Questions form the floor indicated that interest in her subject was high.I cannot recommend her highly enough as an outstanding speaker and author on the little known power struggles in South Africa after Nelson Mandela came to power and her part in some of the Commission investigations.Geraldine’s book, Brave Truth, gives us an insight into how deep the corruption, fraud and violence was that we in Australia only vaguely heard about and how she had to flee her country after serious death threats to her and her family.
