Welcome to OOMF! workforce and personal development solutions provided by Erica Hodgson: specialist healthcare and leadership services tailored to your organisation.
Drawing on my extensive experience as an occupational therapist, coach, advisor and educator I provide:
- Coaching for people who want to focus on their own strengths and development both personally and professionally
- Professional supervision from new graduate to experienced staff including leaders and managers
- Training development and facilitation targeted towards maintaining staff wellness, managing stress and risk awareness
I am passionate about supporting people to live to their full potential. After a career working directly with clients in the health system, I have now shifted focus to working with people from all walks of life. I am a trained coach and supervisor and bring this approach to all my interactions. I love getting to know the ‘real person’ and finding out what will really make the difference to lead the life they want to live!
I am also experienced in creating effective workplaces which respond to the needs of the client, increase staff knowledge and satisfaction and build leadership potential. I use a values based approach focusing on attitudes and beliefs which reflects my background in mental health and interest in staff wellness. I enjoy seeing staff make connections between past experience and new learning, whether in group training or 1:1 sessions.
I am a director on two boards and enjoy the high level contribution I can make through strategy and governance.
