Biographies | Vicki LaBouchardiere
Vicki loves helping ambitious people get the best out of themselves, specialising in coaching executives and entrepreneurs. If you’re a high-achiever, she’ll know you probably expect a lot of yourself, work much harder than everyone else, and still beat yourself up for all the things you don’t do!
It’s Vicki’s job to help you appreciate your strengths and identify your barriers to success. She’ll often use profiling and assessment tools to dig into your mindset, so you get the guidance you need as quickly and efficiently as possible.
In addition to her coaching work, Vicki has a commercial background in construction and property and co-directs an accountancy practice in Dorset with husband Kevin. They have four grown-up children together who have all flown the nest, so she’s now enjoying living in a strangely quiet and tidy cottage.
When Vicki isn’t working, you’ll find her in the gym or writing her next book.
