Coaching Insights #8 The key to unlocking sales

  I work with many coaches helping them grow their businesses organically from the inside out; and I’m surprised how often I see them shying away from having sales conversations. When I dig a little deeper and ask what the worry is, they often reply, “I just don’t want to be pushy”. There is a lot unspoken in that statement, which if we give it a voice might sound like: They … Continued

Coaching Insights #7 Is failure the secret to success?

I’ve worked with many coaches over the years, and one of the biggest fears of failure, and blockages of creative thinking I see them face is financial. Instead of being able to dedicate their time, energy and focus on supporting their clients and building their business in a creative way, they worry about money.  They struggle to build a healthy, sustainable business. Not just something that enables them to get … Continued

Coaching Insights #6 How to build a thriving coaching business

You are always coaching. Even when you’re not coaching. The life of a coach isn’t always easy. There are thousands of us out there. All shining brightly.

Procrastination has a bad reputation Do an online search of the ‘P’ word and you will find a plethora of articles declaring that procrastination prevents success, others declaring procrastination can ruin your life, and at the most extreme how procrastination is killing you. Seriously this stuff is so toxic it’s no wonder many of my clients ask me worriedly, “How do I stop procrastinating?” We all do it don’t we? … Continued

Dear love, I am so over your lessons

I’m a natural learner, not always in an academic sense, more of a ‘lessons from life’ kind of learner. I love to take the experiences of my life and interpret the teachings they offer me. I dive deeply into my emotions to understand myself and others more fully; I enjoy capturing the dreams I have at night and dicphering the hidden meanings they hold. I am fascinated by how much … Continued

Coaching Insights #5 Why doing more creates less value

As a coach do you ever find yourself finishing a coaching session feeling tired and weary? Like your life force has drained away from you, and all you long for is to curl up under a blanket with a warm drink and a good book for a few hours? It happens sometimes doesn’t it?  I know most of your coaching sessions leave you (and your clients) feeling invigorated, upbeat, openhearted … Continued

World feeling wonky? Maybe it’s Mercury Retrograde

A couple of years ago I received a letter from a hospital, it read: I am writing to you regarding Mr A Little’s stored sperm samples. We are currently auditing Mr Little’s file; since you were the named partner in his consent form we would like your consent for disposal of his samples. That’s a true story! I stopped in my tracks, wondering for a moment what an earth was going on. … Continued

Coaching insights #4 How to coach clients stuck in fantasy

Fantasy – we all do it don’t we? Dream, imagine, fantasise, taking ourselves away from our reality, and for a moment in time transporting ourselves to another place, another world, another experience. Gazing into thin air, watching coffee swirl in an endlessly stirred mug or drifting deeply into a novel, we all have our favourite, innocent forms of escape. For some people imagination is their art or even their science. … Continued
