Who knows, as we could still be in the middle of it, if a second wave takes place! In the meantime, my coaching and coach supervision business has now become either virtual or outside walking. How has Covid impacted you and your business/employer? Working from home has been beneficial for some and a lot harder […]
Pointers for sixth formers, graduates and parents and how the support of a good coach can help 1 What subjects should the student take in the sixth form to give themselves the right platform for what they want to do going forward? My daughters found completing a Prism Profile (www.prismbrainmapping.com ) a good basis for […]
Anne is one of my favourite people and like me she is a coach. Just by being a coach, however, does not mean we know all of the answers when we are in the situation whatever that is. Having somebody independent to talk to helps a great deal. I have never coached Anne but since […]
J had been working at his current job for nearly 3 years, a few months longer than he expected. In his career plan J had decided that 2 years would give him additional knowledge and enough of a challenge to add to his CV before he moved on and upwards in his career. I had […]
I was invited to a collaboration morning with Strategic UK, Darren Berry and his team last month when I was kindly given a book called “Start with Why” by Simon Sinek. It was interesting because as a coach, one of the questions we were trained never to ask, was WHY as it can be seen […]

I have just spent a couple of days in a rather wet Yorkshire and before I took Jenny our 7 year old Cavalier, out for a walk on the Moors I thought I would jot down my formula for career coaching. I don’t really believe in the A-Z of outplacement. When somebody is made redundant […]
How did you find the Olympics; frustrating, exhilarating, exhausting or just basic good fun?Life can be a little like this! I had to do my annual accounts on Thursday 2nd August; a task I find the most boring and tedious I have to do in a year. This year I had my laptop in the […]
I have just returned from the enriching experience of walking 50 odd miles of the Pennine Way with a group of ageing chaps (some reminders of Last of the Summer Wine) where we indulged in much walking, conversation, whisky (not me, I can’t stand the stuff!) beer and gin drinking, a variety of very pleasant […]
Coaching is difficult to explain to people unless you have experienced it. Selling the benefits of coaching is even more difficult because it doesn’t feel right blowing your own trumpet if you are a coach. So, why not get someone else to do that for you.
