Nicola Callan, Founder, Boost HR
Nicola is a qualified coach and mentor, learning and development practitioner and HR professional. She works with organisations to improve individual performance, team performance and to help create and embed coaching approaches to improve engagement.
Working in and around operations for most of her career, she understands which skills, approaches and interventions can make the biggest difference.
A skilled facilitator, her ability to listen to, digest and summarise differing viewpoints means she is often called upon to help design and deliver strategic priorities such as behaviour statements, performance management frameworks and re-organisations. She's also adept in introducing coaching approaches into teams and functions.
Nicola’s work is centred around helping people to work better together. By understanding ourselves we can in turn learn to understand others and how to get the best out of those around us in a ways that are fulfilling for everyone. In her coaching work, Nicola enjoys creating a safe space for her clients to explore their preferences, challenge their thinking, build their confidence and step away from their comfort zones.
Creative, credible and engaging, Nicola builds relationships fast and works with you to identify and achieve what’s most important to you.
Living in the Yorkshire Dales, Nicola can be often be found outside walking with her dogs while concocting new ideas and programmes for her clients.
VA to Nicola Callan
I’m Kaf Harris, I am a Virtual Assistant based in Suffolk and I have been working with Nicola since March 2020. It's been a pleasure join her team and have the opportunity to be involved in her thriving business.
My previous career started as a PA within Estate Agency followed by an Interiors Company. I then took a few years out to have my two children before returning to work in Education where I stayed for 20 years. I was a Safeguarding & Welfare Officer in Primary and Secondary education.
It was an extremely tough and emotional career but also had lots of positive highlights and I remember it fondly. I decided to leave education in May 2019 and started work as a Virtual Assistant. I love the variety of my role and know that no two days are the same plus I love the freedom to work from home and in my own time.
