Conversations with clients and prospective clients these last few weeks have emphasised to me how important it is to choose your coach wisely. I’ve heard some great – and some awful(!) – stories!

So how do you find a coach that’s the perfect match for you?

Coaching is an investment – even if you are not funding the coaching directly yourself, you are investing your time and energy. It’s therefore key to choose your coach wisely. An important consideration is – does the coach have relevant experience?

Does the coach have expertise and experience that is relevant to you?

If you are thinking of starting coaching, there are lots of things to consider when choosing your coach. I recently wrote about finding a coach that ‘gets’ you. I feel another very important consideration is…

Are they the right coach for you?

Are you the right client for them?

So how do you find this out??

Are you considering hiring or choosing a coach?

Maybe you are currently not reaching your potential or feeling unfulfilled..?

Maybe you’re considering changing career..?

Maybe you’ve been recommended for coaching at your place of work..?

Embarking on coaching can be a big decision. If you are thinking of starting coaching, there are lots of things to consider when choosing your coach.

I think one of the most important is… does your coach ‘get’ you?

About 8 years ago, I was excited to change role. It turned out to be a case of ‘when your dream job disappoints…’

I had been looking for a change and, despite being anxious about not having had an interview for a while, I was successful in securing the role I wanted.

(Even the dreaded role play part of the interview went well!)

The new role started and I was really enjoying the work I was doing. I liked my new shared office with a beautiful view. I loved working alongside my new colleagues…

It’s October already!

Despite me feeling like it is just the end of the summer, it is actually October. It’s a great time to reflect – what have you ‘harvested’ this year, what is it time to let go of?

Recently I read about how we should take this time of ‘harvest’ and the end of the growing season to consider, and be thankful for, what we have grown this year.

[Having written that I’m transported (mentally) back to primary school “We plough the fields and sca-tter…” – just me?]

This harvest I have been enjoying apples and blackberries from the new garden. But these have been grown by the previous owners and so I am enjoying the fruits of their labours – literally…

As I reflect back on this year and the summer in particular, what stands out to me is that I focussed on my house move and holidays. The reason that I was able to do this during the school holidays is because a few years ago I took redundancy and moved to self-employment. I now have the freedom to choose how to spend my summers.

I haven’t written a blog post in a while – as well as having my normal break during the school holidays, this summer we moved house. I thought I’d share some thoughts from my experiences of the move on what makes a good customer experience – and what doesn’t…

We needed to find and select a removal firm. Based on this, here are 10 lessons learned that may be useful for all of us in terms of how we present ourselves and/or our businesses, and what our (potential) customers experience....

Should I stay or should I go?

A couple of my clients at the moment are making career decisions – major decisions about their future careers – and potentially making major changes!

A common theme (assumption?) is that they feel they need to choose between doing something they love and/or gives them fulfilment, and something that will provide a comfortable income.

Binary options and decisions which seem ‘all or nothing’ or ‘black and white’ are really tricky!

For example if you’re trying to decide:

Whether to stay in a job you don’t really enjoy OR to leave right now…

Whether to earn a good salary OR find fulfilling work…

Whether to start your own business OR remain in employment…

Often, through discussion and exploration, it becomes apparent that there are more than just two options – there is a third (or fourth or fifth…) way. But at first it can seem that an option that is e.g. both fulfilling and lucrative, is just too good to be true!

I used to suffer from the Sunday night blues.

At 6pm on a Sunday the emails started flooding in…

…I could set my watch by it!

As people in the leadership team I was part of tried to get on top of their inboxes before the start of the week ahead, the emails would start flying in…
