Only you understand what you want in your own life, and a coach’s skill is not to tell you what to do or to give you all of the answers. However, in order to help you unlock your full potential, as your coach I will bring certain skills of my own. I will challenge you, and this may feel like ‘work’ at times.
But we don’t grow without that stretch.
If you work with me on developing the right strategy for any area of your life; be that your career, business, relationship or otherwise, our work together will likely touch on all four areas of my methodology.
Nothing exists in a vacuum; and change in one area of life will have a ripple effect on other areas. I’m here to make sure you see the bigger picture and your strategy covers everything you care about.
Lifestyle & Happiness:
No matter how focused you are on a new project or current dilemma, it is essential to keep an eye on the big picture of how you live your life. Too much work, no matter how passionate you are, ultimately leads to burnout and unhappiness. So as we work together, I will check in with you on your lifestyle balance.
Work, Purpose & Values:
It is so easy to get pulled along with the current in life, and especially so when it comes to our work. As we are all dependant on work for maintaining the status quo; putting the lights on and food in the fridge, we can easily forget about our purpose and values. If our current work is not aligned with our values and not filling us with purpose, then no amount of distracting ourselves or just ‘getting on with it’ will fill the void.
I will be checking in with you to make sure your values are respected and you have a healthy sense of purpose in your life. This may not always come from your career, it could be your family or a hobby, but it does need to be present somewhere.
I am a natural listener who listens to both what you are saying and what you aren’t saying. I am passionate about supporting my clients in whatever way they need. I can help you to feel more confident to live the life that you want to live.
Intuitive, Gentle Progress on Goals:
I am not a ‘shouty’ sergeant major coach. I believe that progress is best made on your own terms and at your own speed. Have you ever seen somebody take a leap at a big life change, only to turn and run back to the safety of their comfort zone shortly after? The chances are they were pushed too hard and too soon.
The most sustainable, authentic changes are the ones we make when it feels right. With that said, I do recognise procrastination when I see it. It’s a thin grey line between one and the other – and a part of my job is to help you tell the difference.
Practical, Common Sense Strategies:
This is about your outcomes from working with me. I like my clients to get to the root of their issues, and then from that place of clarity, build practical steps for the change they want to achieve. Simple, common sense strategies are the most direct and sustainable route from A to B.
So why don’t we walk the line from A to B by ourselves? And why get a coach?
Typically it’s a combination of emotions, fears, and outside influences that get us so muddled about what we “should” do, we can’t hear ourselves think about what we WANT to do. I’m here to fade out the interference and give you the safe space to hear your own thoughts. From there, we build your strategy together.
