WHY WOULD YOU WANT A PERSONAL COACH?
The higher you rise in your profession, the more demands on you and the “lonelier” it becomes at the top. Everybody around you has their own agenda and, if you are the CEO, there is no longer anyone to tell you what to do. You have the ultimate responsibility for everything that happens in your company.
And of course, you are not “just” a CEO. You have a life outside of work: maybe a family or relationships, friends or hobbies. It’s great to feel passionate about work and give your best, but most people also desire a certain balance in their life in order to feel fulfilled.
By working with a personal coach like me, you will gain a trusted, independent and confidential resource to support you through these challenges.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF EXECUTIVE COACHING?
An executive coaching session allows you to step “out” of your career and life and work “on” them instead.
I will never tell you what to do. You are the expert in your profession and, indeed, of yourself. Instead, our sessions will provide the following benefits:
✔ A creative space for you to speak your inner thoughts out loud, and to explore the matters that are critical for you to resolve
✔ An opportunity to develop your own goals, solutions and strategies
✔ A chance to be listened to without bias or agenda
✔ A place to receive feedback and constructive challenges that will help you discover new perspectives
✔ A forward-looking structure, tools and processes for your self-exploration and strategic planning
HOW DOES IT WORK?
I coach clients in any country and timezone either face-to-face in London or via Skype video calls. I also fly out to your place for intensive immersion days.
Face-to-face sessions in London are either at Bank, Moorgate or in Clapham.
I am also available for immersion weekends away from London, at a location of your choice.
How I suggest we start
Coaching has to be personal to be effective. I suggest that we have quick call first to discuss your requirements. If we both think that we could be a good match, then I would invite you to attend a 90 min Initial Consultation during which we can discuss your goals and requirements in more detail. This will give you a real experience of what it would be like to work with me. At the end of the session, we can decide whether we are a good fit for each other and which coaching programme would be best for you.
Your bespoke programme
We will agree a bespoke programme that is best suited to support you in creating your desired outcomes. It could be based on one of the programmes listed below or cover something completely different. You will set the goals for our work together and will always be “in the driving seat”.
My standard programmes require a minimum commitment of 10 one-hour sessions. Depending on the issues you want to work on, we may agree to work together for a longer period or meet for an intensive session.
What does a session look like?
A coaching session consists of a deep and powerful conversation in which I ask you questions that will help you gain clarity and find solutions for your challenges and ambitions in your career and wider life. I will never tell you what to do. You are the expert in your profession, as well as the expert of your own life.
All sessions offer a mixture of action planning and exploration. Sometimes I will introduce you to coaching tools and models that will assist you in your exploration and learning.
And that’s not all: what happens between sessions is as important as what happens in the sessions. We will agree on exercises or actions that you can complete between sessions to keep up momentum and energy, and ultimately to get you closer to your goals step-by step.
