Coaching for self discovery

Who am I? And why does it matter?

Finding out who you are and why this is important for you. (listen to my podcast if you prefer to listen)

Have you ever wondered who you are deep down and what you stand for? If not, you’re not alone.  Taking time to dig a little deep and work through some questions to find out who you are, what makes you tick, what your purpose is, what brings joy (and sadness) can bring so many benefits.

The ability to question yourself, spend time to follow thoughts, identify what is important, can bring self belief, confidence along with making decision making and interacting with others a lot easier. It is a conversation that comes up regularly in coaching, and if you read on, you’ll find some questions to help you start the process.

Mediation / Facilitating conversations at work

As an experienced coach and facilitator, I am used to listening deeply and making every effort to make people feel heard. I work hard to take a step back from the detail and imaging how things are from other people’s perspective. And these are two things which really help when there are challenging conversations to be had between two people or groups. And these challenging conversations seem to be increasing in frequency….

What is executive coaching?

The International Coaching Federation defines coaching as

“partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership.”

There are many types of coaches from health to executive or nutrition, marketing etc and it can all be quite confusing. This blog will give you some insight into the sorts of coaching I get involved in.

An executive coach works with people within organisations. This can be across any industry or profession and although coaches are often sought for their industry experience, this is not necessarily needed as, depending on the situation, an ‘outside’ view from someone with no preconceived ideas or assumptions can be extremely useful.

Coaching for Coaches

Newly qualified and new to the business of coaching?

You may have recently finished your coaching course, or be coming the the end and realising it’s time to think about how you’re going to make your new business a success. Being an excellent, intuitive, well trained coach is super important. As is being able to make a living doing what you’re good at and love. Business skills and coaching skills need to go hand in hand if you’re going to make a proper living and not everyone has a natural mind for business. I’ve been coaching for over 15 years and still love every moment. It’s an enormous privilege to work with all sorts of people and gain insight into the challenges and successes along the way.

Gain skills to ensure your coaching business is a success

From deciding your niche (or not!) and who you want to work with to having a marketing plan to get the word out there and start working, the business side of coaching has to be a focus. Too many coaches train to a high standard, only to find it hugely challenging finding clients. You’ve invested in the training, so it’s worth making sure you recoup your investment quickly. This means being proactive in your networking and making sure your message is clear.

Get in touch to discuss how I can help you set up properly, ensuring you have everything in place to be able to create a successful coaching business. In addition to coaching, I am director of other businesses and have a background in marketing, so I am able to share this knowledge and experience with you.

Thinking of training as a coach?

As with any training, it is no small investment, so being sure that it is something you want to do and will enjoy is pretty important. Making sure you are clear about how you are going to make it work, who you want to work with is vital. Planning ahead makes all the difference. Get clear on how your business will run and what this means for you. Get support during training with any challenges and questions. When you compete your coaching course, you will be clear on what you need to do to hit the ground running. It can be a lonely place, setting up on your own, so having a coach to hold you accountable makes a world of difference.
