I started my coaching business in 1996 and have listened and worked with thousands of individuals to achieve their personal goals or business dreams. As an educator, I use information with wisdom. As a sportsman, I focus on fitness for purpose, performance and results. As an entrepreneur, I challenge for growth, resilience and success.
My strengths are leadership, strategic direction, enthusiasm, optimism, and courage - what are your strengths? We will release these into your coaching challenge.
How coaching can help
- Executive coaching/mentoring (e.g. leadership and management challenges, change management, mergers, and integration issues).
- Business coaching/mentoring (e.g. business development, team development, change).
- Entrepreneurship activity (e.g. business start-up, ideas exploration).
- Life coaching (e.g. career change, relationship support, goal setting, problem-solving).
What to expect from the first session
Through careful listening and questioning, I will begin to understand the nature and scope of the challenge you want to work on. This first session will give you confidence to consider possible actions and strategies to progress. We will identify tools and techniques that will transform your approach and move you forward. I will act as a sounding board as we create possible scenarios of action. You will be able to share confidentially.
Your coaching/mentoring programme
We will agree the frequency and number of sessions to meet. These can be face to face or remote. We will discuss how to work together remotely during this virus lockdown period. We have Zoom, Skype, Whats App video, FaceTime etc. I have clients who use these mediums with me. I will outline the support package of What's App, emails, check in/progress calls etc. This will include any resources which will accelerate you achieving your goals.
Your first step
Accept the initial free coaching session by emailing me or phoning my mobile 07966 491673.
