I have been doing this such a long time, I have a veritable ‘tool bag’ that is bursting! I know above all that what I do is definitely not a one size fits all approach.
As a coach first and foremost, I will meet you where you are with no judgment, blame or expectations and from day 1 you will feel you have a supportive hand on your shoulder. I am now part of your team. Be that 1-1 or in a business, I will fly your flag and invest in success as much as you do yourself if not more. All I ask from you is commitment, accountability and regularity in our meetings.
With personal clients I will work hard to understand the outcomes you are looking for and build us a picture so we start to psychologically move towards them. Once we have them firmly set in the sat nav we are on our way and it is for me to help you put ‘petrol in the engine’ – the motivation to keep going in tough times and to work through obstacles, limiting beliefs and road blocks. To help you process both somatically through the body and understanding our emotions and thoughts that may try to sabotage where we are getting to.
This is where I may bring HeartMath into the coaching or any one of my other tools to help you move through change.
With organisations the process is much the same. It is imperative I first understand what the ultimate ‘world cup’ of outcomes is for you. The impact you are looking for me to have. What this looks and feels like. The culture, the obstacles, the context and how I can best support people ‘wholistically’.
The last few years has taught us we are not a role, a job title but people who carry out a role for a small part of our lives. At a time when people are questioning not only how they work but why they work amidst this Great Reset and Resignation, it is vital we prioritise wellbeing at work.
I believe fundamentally people just want to feel recognised, valued and rewarded for work they enjoy. This is at the heart of my philosophy with wellbeing in the workplace. I bring a coaching style of leadership and an approach that empowers all to continually expand in critical thinking, make life changes that may be tough and support businesses to stay financially and ethically robust!
