Are you feeling the pressure for 2021? Interestingly, I’ve found this quite split so far – some people are determined to make up for last year whilst others feel it’s too unpredictable to guarantee anything. Either way, it’s almost certainly the right time to put serious thought and effort into how you show up in your business.
With that in mind, I’ve put together a new 12-week programme for business owners and executives looking to excel.
If you’ve not experienced much formal coaching or mentoring before, this is a great entry point. Most of my clients have a more casual process for coaching session to session, depending on their goals and daily experiences. But this 12 weeks will give you an insight as to what’s possible and the areas we can explore together – it’s not all-inclusive, but is eye opening!
Your first session starts here. We’ll look into your values, explore how they drive you or hold you back – generally discover their power within and upon you. From there we’re going to analyse the direction your professional path is taking to get a firm footing of where it’s built from and where it points. From that point, we’ll touch on your dreams. The ideal is that we go beyond the surface “I want to be a millionaire” and breakdown the why’s and hows, based on your tenets and current direction.
This is the second 2-hour coaching session you’ll undertake – along with the tenets session, they’ll sandwich your overall coaching experience.
Our aim in this session is to look at how discoveries made over your coaching programme are processed and implemented. We’re going to look at how you have been adding each week’s insights to your work, and then how you might continue to do so in future. We’ll explore what has worked, what has not, what is missing from your adaptation processes, what you’re failing to implement, and how you’ll build these features into a strong future.
It will not be a surprise to you that everyone has different strengths. Sometimes we’re absolutely aware of them and sometimes they remain entirely blind to us. Our goal in this session is threefold.
With the information gleaned from your strengths breakdown, my hope is that you can utilise the knowledge of your own personal strengths to build and use the resilience so often needed in a career.
How do you show up? How do you want to be seen? Separated from your role or business – who are you? And perhaps more importantly, what aspects of you are connected to your personal life yet totally different from your professional one? This piece of work can be invaluable for those wanting to understand how others see them and to project what they need in work-life. The goal here is not to in any way be disingenuous or curate a veneer of falsehoods, but to really be aware of your power and be able to harness it for your agenda, or use it as a shield to protect you from being overly vulnerable.
What does leadership mean to you and how is it implemented? Whether you already have a team of fifty and play a role in every community event you can, or you’re a hermit talking to a volleyball, leadership plays a part in your life. This session will be attuned to your existing levels of leadership to either examine and bolster your leadership attributes or help you define a leadership profile before you walk the walk. This combines work done in our Tenets session with your presense work to help develop a leader who is true to themselves and can show up true too.
EQ or Emotional Intelligence is a definite buzzword at the minute. But it’s just one part of self-awareness and relating to other people. Our session focusing on this will allow you to examine the way you relate to others, how you process what happens around you, and how you can use these things to help. Different from the Presence and Personal Brand session which is about projecting outwards, this session looks at what happens under the bonnet – your own emotional involvement, which gives you a deeper understanding of those around you.
Almost every professional I’ve ever met has to actively spend time on this subject. We are not perfect humans – but that doesn’t mean we stop trying to improve and adapt. This week, we explore how you bring on new skills, practises or routines in an ever-changing world. We discuss what worked for you in the past, and what hasn’t – then with answers discovered in your Strengths and Self Awareness sessions, we can build a pragmatic approach to future habit-forming to help you excel.
How are you at accepting help? What about delegation? Do you take on too much or feel burdened? Or are you just scratching your potential because you’re not taking advantage of what’s around you?! We all need to know how to accept help and how to allocate our resources to get the most from them. This session is about taking a fresh look at how you do this in your life, and consider how well it’s working for you. Ideally, we’ll finish the session leaving you with confidence in the support around you, ready and able to raise banners when needed.
Perhaps you face a recurring problem you don’t know how to handle, something pops up unexpectedly, or maybe one of our structured sessions reveals something – the freedom sessions are just that.
Of course, if any of the structured sessions don’t appeal or aren’t an area you need help on, we can substitute them with additional freedom sessions to make sure you’re getting the most from your coaching experience.
So, am I right for you? Maybe yes, maybe no. I realise the typical coach thing to do is scream Yes! Of course, I can help anyone! but as simply optimistic and fluffy as that might be, I’m too much of a realist to believe it.
If you’d like to find out…
With over ten years of on-the-ground branding and marketing experience, a wealth of CPD (I love learning, so continuing professional development is a core attribute of mine), combined with my qualifications in coaching, brand strategy, and leadership; I feel confident that I can help almost anyone interested in my coaching range.
My style of coaching is quite blended – which makes it hard to explain. The simple version is that I work best tailoring to each client – adjusting my “toolkit” appropriately. Some of those tools include assessments, some are questioning techniques, whilst others are physical activities.

I’m hoping to create a coaching intervention for those from socioeconomically deprived backgrounds – so that those who grow up poor, don’t have to live in poverty forever, or pass it on to their kids as so often happens.
To achieve this, I’ve got a number of steps lined up but right now – I just need to have conversations without agenda to see if I notice anything organically before diving into the complex side of things. Your coaching experience is exactly the same as everyone else’s, I just need to ask a couple of extra questions at 3 points in your coaching and your permission to use your anonymous data.

Before I take on any coaching clients, they need to know and be comfortable working with me, and I need to know and be comfortable working with them. As you might expect, after some of these calls people have said they’re not ready to begin right now, and after others, I’ve said that I don’t think I’m the right fit and often referred them on.
This isn’t a casual dinner-party introduction or the ever-popular 15-minute “discovery call”. I ask that you set aside 90 minutes to go through this call, during which we’ll discuss:
Plus we’ll cover the logistics of how coaching would work, what happens before, during, then after sessions, and how we’d build the ideal coaching relationship.
