Personal Self-Development & Executive Coaching
For personal or professional self-development and growth
let's find those next small steps
that will move you closer to your goals.
Some questions for you...
You might be at an unsettling transition point in your life.
Or, you are perhaps feeling a bit lost, or confused, or frustrated, or maybe just stuck in some area of your life or career - and not sure why.
On the other hand you might simply be wanting to more clearly identlify what you want next, or what is now really important to you.
Do you want to review and re-assess your goals, ambitions and intentions?
Are you about to step into an area of life you have not experienced before?
Are you about to enter the world of work or are you mid-career or are you approaching retirement?
Are you approaching a new personal or professional role?
Are you trying to figure out what to do next or where now to put your energies and focus?
Are you about to take a career break or to start exploring further education,?
Are you looking for a new job?
Are you developing an interest or some other form of commitment?
Or, are you feeling like you are going nowhere, just round and round, and you want to go somewhere else?
Are you needing to think something through?
Do you want to push yourself?
Are you impatient for change?
Are you hungry to grow?
Personal coaching can help you unlock and apply your strengths in all areas of your life and make the positive progress that you want.
In our sessions, my role as a coach will be to:
Help you identify your coaching goals and the next small steps you can take to achieve them
Ask questions to help you explore and unlock issues and options
Actively listen to you
Support and challenge you appropriately
Help you learn, grow and work things out for yourself
Help you explore what support you need and how or where to find it
Help you explore options and the advantages and disadvantages of different courses of action
If appropriate, help you reflect on relevant past experiences with the intention of finding learnings from them that could be helpful in achieving your goals
Be honest and open with you
Give you constructive feedback as and when appropriate and agreed
Support you in identifying specific actions and ways forward to support your development needs and desires
Hold you to account for agreed actions and explore with you the reasons for actions that might not have been completed
Be alert to, and raise for awareness, the potential for any conflict of interests that might arise
Take any issues or difficulties relating to my coaching competencies or skills or to matters relevant to the ethical guidelines and professional standards of the International Coaching Federation to my professional Supervisor, but without breaking confidentiality
