Zoë Grace has been facilitating group and individual development since joining Cambridgeshire County Council’s Learning and Development Dept. in 1991 as the Training Organiser in Joint Development. Whilst with Cambridgeshire she was responsible for rolling out the majority of training for the adult care service for the County Council, in addition to focussing on interagency development work. As part of the latter Zoë Grace helped to develop and launch the Adult Protection joint policy and procedures for the Huntingdon and Peterborough social services and health care trusts.
In 1990 she was accredited by the Kairos Foundation, an international educational charity, to mentor self esteem enhancement development courses. To the initial Power of Self Esteem course she has added mentoring Power of Purpose and Power of Connection and has delivered all of them in both personal and professional contexts. Some of these have been general and open to anyone, some have been specifically with people with physical and sensory impairments, people with lived mental health experience or through the arts with people with learning difficulties.
The skills and insights gained during professional and personal development make Zoë Grace an ideal person to facilitate change, whether in one to one coaching or through team building and training. She works to enhance the purpose, clarity and vision in a person’s professional or personal life so that change is whole, organic and transformative. Her model for leadership is that developed by Dr K. Brad Brown and David Templer through the work of the More To Life personal development organisation. Her intention is to model and live in a way that is aligning her purpose, ethics and support for others. Zoë Grace is available to offer consultancy in service development and policy design.
Zoë Grace has a commitment to enhancing the quality of professional practice so that teams are created which fulfill performance indicators and national framework standards and personal aspirations of excellence and satisfaction. Customer need is central to all training design and delivery, as is empowerment of users of the service. Whenever appropriate she will consult users of a service in the design of trainings and co-deliver with them. Zoë Grace will also bring in drummers, facilitators and a trained support team when needed.
Zoë Grace is a blues singer with her own band The Night Drinkers, a writer of songs and poetry, maker of marvelous garments, lover of movement and people. These feed her passion for integrating insight and professional rigour with creativity to deliver inspiring and energising trainings.
