Kaidi's story

Untitled.jpgWe'll let Kaidi tell it in her own words:

At 12, I taught myself I couldn't depend on anyone else to survive, so I had to work hard and achieve the life I wanted.

At 16, I was on my own, and my career became my sole focus.

I started working in Hotels and Pubs. I was the youngest licensee in Britain at 19, I managed a seventy-bedroomed Hotel as the General Manager at age 21 and transitioned into insurance aged 25

I trained to be an Underwriter and discovered I was outstanding at selling, so I started training others in the call centre. I trained to be a trainer and facilitator and taught teams to sell.

I moved to Cornwall when I was eight months pregnant, had my daughter, and then started from the bottom up as a cashier in a bank until I was promoted to Branch Manager four years later.

As a Branch Manager, I studied to be a Financial Advisor and thrived in a dual role.

"My passion for coaching and developing people stems from when I was a high flyer. Number one in the country nationally in the league tables, for three years running,

I won the prestigious "Bank Manager of the Year" award. I was on a fast track in my thirties for a Director's position - It was an excellent opportunity to fast-track my career.

But, everything changed when I got a new manager intent on knocking me down a peg or two (his words). The stuffing was knocked out of me. The constant battle to be a woman in a man's world defeated me daily.

After a few years, I decided I was more interested in people than advancing my career.

I went on a steep learning curve, studied coaching, psychology, neuroscience, and NLP and started a role as a Regional Development Manager, looking after people. I loved it.

 After twenty-three years in the bank, It was going through a restructure, and there were no branches where I was based. So I found myself facing redundancy.

The bank agreed to help me find an opportunity outside, and I started a career coaching programme. It was life-changing. It helped me think through who I was, what I wanted from my work and how to get it. I trained to be a Professional Coach with the renowned Co-Active Training Institution in London and became a certified coach.

I started my own successful business, "Synergise Coaching & Training." Still, I didn't feel I had the tools to help women who were going through a tough time smashing the glass ceiling, so I became a "Playing Big Facilitator", learning from Tara Mohr, excellent tools which change lives. 

During the pandemic, I started a new company, Leaders With Nails Ltd, to support women in my community to reach their career potential. I completed a training program with Positive Intelligence as a Mental Fitness Coach and ORSC Fundamentals as a Team Coach. 

Now I feel privileged to be able to support individuals, teams and organisations to reach their potential.
