Every serious athlete understands just how useful it is to have a coach. But for the rest of us, getting constructive, nonjudgmental support and feedback rarely happens, and so we continue with the same old ideas, habits and routines that just take us round and round in circles. If you’ve never experienced coaching, it’s hard to understand how powerful it is to have someone in your corner to be there for you as mentor, guide, confidant, adviser, soulmate and friend all rolled into one.
A coach is someone to accompany you out of your comfort zone and on route to a new more satisfying future. He or she is someone to celebrate your new successes and provide a shoulder to cry on in times of need. But most importantly, a coach is someone to help you think out of the box and spur you on to new goals so you can become more effective, more successful and more satisfied with life than you have ever been before. If you suspect that coaching might be just what you need right now, give me a call or send me an email to arrange a free one-hour consultation with no strings attached.Contact me
There are many excellent self-help books available. My personal favourites are listed in the Recommended Reads section on my Resources page. All of these books require you to establish your personal goals and identify what challenges you need to overcome to achieve them. Once you’ve done that, it’s ‘simply’ a question of developing new attitudes and routines that will take you to where you want to be. In order to help with this process I include copies of my coaching questionnaire, my weekly IT planner, my monthly achievement tracker and my progress chart. Although deceptively simple, they have proven to be valuable tools for personal development. Whether you are a client or not, you have my full permission to download them and use them as often as you like. Good luck!
