Team Profiles and Testimonialsadmin
Hazel has a real aptitude to be fully present and non judgmental which put me at ease, whilst at the same time challenging, pushing me with probing questions that got right to the heart of issues. I feel I have absorbed learning and would thoroughly recommend her coaching
General Manager, Italy, GlaxoSmithKline
As a CEO, finding the right people to turn to for advice and support becomes increasingly difficult. Courage2Lead helped me to see a seemingly difficult situation much more clearly and objectively, allowing me to analyse the options and choose a way forward. Not only was I able to resolve the issue, but I have been able to learn and develop on the way.
CEO, BMW Group Financial Services, Belgium
Courage2Lead has been fantastic in identifying areas to work on, getting us all together as a team and enabling us to define a clear vision and the tools to get there.
Head of Medical Excellence & QualityRoche Products
As part of my ongoing development, I had a number of coaching sessions with Hazel. I found them to be invaluable. Her ability to ‘get under the skin’ of issues was extremely useful, and her insight allowed me to gain a much better vision of how others viewed me. With this insight I was able to manage my actions & communication to gain better buy-in from both my peers & my team. This improvement was noted during my review.
Chairman, Construction Products Association
My experience of being coached by Cathy was extremely helpful. I was at a point in my life where I just felt stuck.. Cathy’s non-judgmental and empathetic nature allowed me to quickly open up. This in turn allowed Cathy to do what she does best, which is to identify barriers I built within myself that I was unable to recognize on my own. ……. I felt empowered and most importantly, un-blocked. It was a remarkable experience that has positively affected my life in its entirety to this day.
Associate Professor, St Josephs' University PA,USA
Hazel is a well-structured and talented coach that uses effectively a variety of different tools in order to support coachee to achieve his/her goals… I appreciate the most the way that she actively listens and reflects to my needs with genuine, authentic and well organized attitude.
Head of European Operations, UCB Pharmaceuticals
I found Cathy to be a very approachable coach. She is understanding, emphatic and very professional. She holds her coachee accountable for commitments made and with the coachee, drives for the desired outcome of the sessions
HR Director EMEA, Terumo BCT Inc
Hazel has been coaching the Emmi UK leadership team to help embed our company values. She very cleverly recently introduced a coaching session with a still life drawing class! None of the team had any experience of drawing but Hazel proved that with the right coaching, tools and team approach, we could work very well together and achieve things we thought impossible. That’s courage!
Managing Director, Emmi UK
Hazel…. was instrumental in successfully leading a cultural quality mindset change in the entire organization. I’m happy to endorse her and I’m convinced that any company could benefit from her skills and abilities.
Site Director, GlaxoSmithKline
“Hazel is an excellent coach, facilitator and mentor for teams. I unreservedly endorse her. If you have a question relating to her ability, reach out to me on LinkedIN, and I will respond to you from concrete team experience. Further – her level of confidentiality and personal investment in team success are in my experience uniquely rare. Through 15 years of Healthcare leadership, I selectively endorsed Hazel.”

For our “Future of IT” program, recently well publicised in a blog on cio.com on “Changing the culture of IT” ( (link) ,we needed a custom fit, practical training with sustainable effect for our employees. With Hazel Chapman and Cathy Howell we got that: co-create, co-design a program that combines our views with the expertise of Courage2Lead. The results are there: a collaborative approach to development and high scores on all aspects of the program. Most importantly, the program had stickiness…
I participated in a 6 month senior development programme put together, delivered and co-ordinated by Courage2Lead. The purpose of the program was to support leaders to transition from functional leadership to business wide leadership. As such a very wide range of topics were covered. The contents of the program were of very high standard, quality, very relevant and the delivery was of a high standard as well.
Site Director, UCB Ireland
Hazel is empathetic, but no nonsense. She REALLY listens….. What makes Hazel stand out for me is an intuitive sense that goes beyond method and approach. She has a genuine desire to foster success and growth in others. She wants you to win!
Director, Forensic Consulting, Ernst & Young,
Courage2Lead has been instrumental at up-grading our internal leadership development program offer and has worked very well with our internal team. Hazel animates one of our courses and is perceived as a superb animator and challenger.
