About More Than Motivation
What motivates me to help others achieve success in work and life?
Hi! I’m Fiona…
I’m a Business Wellbeing Consultant and One-to-one Coach, specialising in wellbeing, motivation and leadership training. Using effective strategies and coaching techniques, I work with teams and individuals to improve their mental health and wellbeing, overall performance and working relationships. I do this through building resilience, challenging current thinking and opening minds to new ideas and opportunities.
I believe that everyone has the potential to succeed – if they have the right motivation, the right training and the right support. That’s why I work closely with my clients to help them develop the skills and mindset they need to accomplish their goals and be successful in both their personal and professional lives.
Through my work at More Than Motivation, I help my clients unlock their potential and achieve their goals through a variety of powerful coaching techniques and strategies. Whether you are looking to improve your productivity at work, build more meaningful relationships or improve your wellbeing, I can help you get there.
Work with Me
Helping organisations and their leadership teams establish and maintain a sustainable workplace wellbeing culture by implementing a comprehensive process that covers Awareness, Early Identification & Intervention and Treatment & Recovery.
Through this process, I work with businesses to create a supportive environment that promotes increased employee wellbeing, engagement, and productivity.
Customised one-to-one coaching sessions, designed to help you discover your true motivations and overcome obstacles that may be holding you back from reaching your full potential.
By providing personalised coaching sessions focused on transforming oneself through motivational insights, improving wellbeing, and growing resilience, I empower individuals to become the best versions of themselves.
High up in the breathtaking Highlands of Scotland, is where my roots are and where you’ll find me when I’m not out coaching or delivering CPDs.
Our croft in the idyllic rural surroundings of Caithness is the place my husband Paul, son Iain and I lovingly call home. Of course, a croft wouldn’t be complete without the obligatory array of farm animals and dogs, so we have a few of those running around as well, which keeps life interesting. But I’m no farmer, just someone who loves animals and the fresh country air.
I have always been passionate about education and helping others reach their goals. I spent 18 years as a lecturer with UHI North Highland, delivering at Further Education, Higher Education and professional qualification levels in a range of subjects including computing, business, project management, and team working.
I was a Personal Academic Tutor, responsible for monitoring and mentoring students and was the lead for computing subjects; liaising with industry, the UHI network and the College management team.
I also manage a team of carers working with my disabled son. Iain has quadriplegic cerebral palsy so his needs are quite complex. In supporting Iain to live his life to the full I’ve had to learn and develop skills that allow our team to communicate and work together effectively – from dealing with rota management and supervision to appraisals, development and recruitment.
It was through this role I was introduced to Motivational Maps®, as part of a team training programme, and I immediately saw the benefits of understanding my team’s individual motivators. Five years later More than Motivation® was born.
What I do when I’m not helping others
When I’m not dealing with the latest farmyard-related calamity or welcoming new furry additions to the clan, I’m either spending time with family and friends or consumed with absorbing the latest educational literature.
My belief in supporting the community, means I am involved in numerous local activities and causes. I was the Commanding Officer of the local RAF Air Cadet Squadron for over 20 years, where I loved helping young people develop valuable life skills like leadership, problem-solving, confidence, and self-discipline that would benefit them in their future lives.
I’m proud to now be involved as a volunteer with the mental health charity Mikeysline, helping to create awareness about mental health issues and supporting suicide prevention throughout the Highlands.
I will also take time out to write regular articles published in the Executive Magazine where I share helpful tips and advice to business owners and individuals that are looking to improve workplace wellbeing, communication and productivity.
Improving performance and realising potential – for individuals and organisations.
I believe that everyone has the ability to achieve their goals and be successful in both their personal and professional lives. Through More Than Motivation, my mission is to unlock this potential through powerful coaching techniques and strategies, helping you realise your true potential and accomplish your goals.
To be considered as my clients’ most valued partner through consulting and training for mental health and wellbeing, personal fulfilment, business success and community growth.
What clients say about me
"It has revolutionised my approach and my relationship with my team"
Finding ways to motivate each individual member is challenging when you don’t know where to start. Fiona’s More Than Motivation service has been invaluable in helping me to recognise what makes each staff member feel appreciated and valued.
As a result of Fiona’s discoveries, I now have fulfilled staff who enjoy providing excellent service because they are rewarded and appreciated in the manner that suits them best.
For any business wishing to nurture a harmonious and profitable team, I would highly recommend Fiona and More Than Motivation. It has revolutionised my approach and my relationship with my team and is something I will continue to review annually or with any new staff joining the salon. Thank you, Fiona.
"I gained much more clarity and feel confident in what steps I wanted to take next"
I had a wonderfully enlightening coaching session with Fiona. She asked great questions, tuned into my responses and stayed with me on my path, allowing me space to reflect.
She demonstrated immense insight and helped me to consider things from a different perspective.
I left having gained much more clarity and feeling confident in what steps I wanted to take next. I highly recommend her!
"Fiona’s coaching skills were enlightening and expert. It was a pivotal development moment for our team"
I had previously used Motivational Mapping within a team of employed carers and was impressed by the change that can be brought about in the function of a team. As a clinical director of a team of associate occupational therapists, I was then able to experience being on the receiving end of the process!
Fiona was professional, courteous and observant in setting up the interviews with myself and the staff. Fiona’s coaching skills were enlightening and expert, I learned so much about myself and my team and I was able to share the insights gained with the team, and each of us went away with a better understanding of our core team values, and what we bring as individuals to the group. It was a pivotal development moment for our team. I could not recommend Fiona and the motivational mapping process more highly!
