A client of mine is also a friend. We saw each other at the weekend and apparently my comments about his work issue were slightly less than subtle. Allegedly I'd told him to get over himself. I can believe this. I'd been to lunch... I'd drunk some wine... you get the picture. It got me thinking [...]

I'm about to start working on a project to help women in senior positions in corporate organisations step up their public speaking and visibility to create more impact and lead change. This both excites and terrifies me. It feels like work I was born to do, but it's giving me the collywobbles and making me ask: [...]

Sometimes knowing where we're going, how we're going to get there and what we have to do next still isn't enough to get us moving and taking action. If you’re properly prepared, you’ve planned your next step, and you have as much support in place as you need, it’s time to have a little faith and [...]

Resolutions or Intentions?

How are your resolutions going? Are you sticking to them? Are things going well so far? I know lots of people love New Year's resolutions, so it's great if they work for you. They don't work for everyone, though. Very often they're unrealistic and set us up for failure at a time of year when things [...]

As coaching is all about new beginnings, I thought this sums things up nicely: For a New Beginning In [...]

Are things just soooo crazy right now, you can barely get through the day, let alone think about your long term goals? Do you recognise that things are going well, but that you’re slipping in and out of panic as your limits are being stretched? Would you like to know how to handle a comfort zone [...]
