Who is it for?

People who want to take their life and work to the next level

Why get coaching? 

Coaching will help you identify your goals, remove blocks to those goals, and create a plan for success. It gives you expert leadership coaching and personal development support over 6 months.

Independent thinking is the most important base for someone to be successful and healthy.  Independent thinking is not what most people usually experience in coaching. Through coaching, you get to think with rigour, courage, imagination and grace about what matters most to you, including your coaching goals.

What will we cover? 

During the coaching, I will create a Thinking Environment™ for you, present content and facilitate dialogue and support you between sessions.

How does it work? 

Over the course of 6-9 months, we will have five two-hour coaching sessions over Zoom, plus ’emergency’ hotline calls for any time you get stuck in between sessions. The main sessions include a launch session devoted to you and your work. Each session contains coaching, presented content, dialogue, stillness, appreciation and other exercises as required. We review the engagement at the halfway point and at the close.
