Who we are
Gillian Rankin is a Business Psychologist whose interest lies in helping people become more effective and fulfilled in their working lives. With expertise in personal and career development, self-marketing and leadership, her emphasis is on coaching individuals on issues including performance improvement, realising potential, self-awareness and self-belief. She is also involved in leadership and talent management initiatives and in designing and delivering customised selection processes to assess candidates for executive and Board level posts
A Chartered Psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society, Gillian has an MA in Psychology and MSc in Occupational Psychology; she is accredited as a coach and qualified to use a wide variety of psychometric instruments.
Having worked across a very range of sectors and functions, Gillian believes that the breadth of her experience informs her work; her commercial awareness complements her understanding of the psychology of performance and of leadership. Perceptive and challenging, yet supportive and encouraging, her aim is to help clients to move to a point where they recognise that ultimately they are resourceful and able to make the changes – sustainable changes – they have identified as being desirable if they are to achieve their personal goals.
