Here are some examples of what we can work together on:
#1 When your life changes
There are often times in life where things happen that mean the ‘rules’ no longer apply. This is where the balance between work and the rest of your life needs to shift. Maybe you are returning to work after having a baby, dealing with illness or loss or approaching retirement for example.
You can find yourself thinking in circles, going round and round and not really making any decisions about what you want or how you can change to adapt to your new situation.
Working with me as your coach allows you to break free from the circular thinking and productively explore your options and how these impact on your working life. It enables you to make good decisions about your future and then implement them.
#2 When you have to adapt to a changing world
Survival and success depend on being able to adapt to change. When we are faced with change, we can often avoid doing what we need to do to adapt. This may be about developing new skills that you need at work or if you are a business owner, it may be about a much larger change. The first step in each case is to recognise and accept that change is needed.
I believe that any change I want always starts with me. If you share this belief, then working with me as your coach can support you. The beliefs and assumptions that we have about our world affect how we respond to change. Our work will look at the role you play in change and what supports you in that as well as what can get in your way.
#3 When you want to get clear on purpose, strategy and business goals
If you have your own business, then who you are and what you want to achieve is central to it. Being really clear on why you are in business and the purpose you have is vital in achieving what you want for yourself and your business. This clarity underpins business strategy and allows you to define business goals that are truly aligned with who you are and what you want.
I provide you with a strong sounding board, I am independent and have no vested interest in your business. I listen carefully to you and challenge as well as support your thinking. This enables you to explore your ideas in more depth in a very safe way. The way we will work together is both powerful and empowering.
#4 When you need to lead
Your approach and style as a leader are really important factors in how successful you are. It is something that good leaders never stop working on.
You can develop greater flexibility in your style and approach through working with me as your coach. The work that we do here looks at your values and beliefs to bring out more authenticity in your leadership. Working with me enables you to be more confident, understand yourself and others in more depth and be a better leader.
#5 When you take on a new role
When you step into a new role you bring with you all the skills and experience you have to date. Now you need to use your knowledge differently and learn new skills. You need to build new relationships and understand a new organisation or adapt your view of the same one. This can be quite challenging and of course, you are up for the challenge!
Working with me as your coach provides you with a strong sounding board. As your coach I listen to you and challenge as well as support your thinking. This enables you to explore your ideas in more depth in a very safe way. Taking time to work with a coach accelerates your leaning and enhances your performance.
#6 When you face tough decisions
We can face some tough decisions at work, often these can impact on other people’s lives which make it even harder to find a way through. Our past experience does not always provide enough support for us in making these decisions. We can avoid decisions and get lost in analysis and over thinking.
I work with you to explore the beliefs you have and assumptions you are making about decisions. You may not be aware of these; they can be both helpful and unhelpful for your decisions. We can explore options in depth in a safe and completely confidential way. You will then know that you have been thorough and worked hard to come to a good decision.
If one or more of the situations above applies to you then coaching is a fantastic way to develop further and achieve your success.
