March Weekly Leadership Challenges No. 2 – The Selfless Leader

I’m Coaching two amazing guys at the moment. They’re in very different roles and yet the same major issue has surfaced for them both and it’s an increasingly common one amongst men.
They have lost sight of themselves.  The word ‘self’ has disappeared from their lives.

March Weekly Leadership Challenges No. 1 – The Hard Task-Master

In my Executive Coaching sessions, I often work with very different leaders in different industries and different sized companies. However, interestingly, they often share similar leadership
challenges. Each week in March I’d, therefore, like to share a pattern I’ve spotted recently and ask you, as a leader, whether you share it too.  If so I’m going to set you a challenge for the week ahead to bring it into conscious awareness and take action to improve it.

Is It Time You Made A Career Change? Anna’s Story

Over the years I have worked with so many people who were clearly in the wrong job or had stayed in a company or role for too long. Lots of different reasons, however, the net results were always the same. It wasn’t good for them and it wasn’t good for their businesses either. Why Is It So Hard To Make A Career Change?

Is It Time You Made A Career Change?

Christmas and New Year are typically good times for reflection. Times when we think about what’s working well and less well in our lives, including our work or career. So, did you think 2019 was the year you were going to make a career change? And have you stepped back onto your hamster wheel started peddling furiously and – one month on – done nothing about it?!

Stress – The Hidden Derailer

What most people in the workplace recognise or label as stress is ‘overwhelm’ ie. when the demands placed upon them or their team members seem too much to cope with.
(Interestingly very often these demands are driven by ourselves, not by others – we put way too much pressure on ourselves – but that’s another story!)

My Personal Journey To Self-Esteem & Confidence – Part 3

I knew I needed something else to focus on which was home-based during this time. So I decided to undertake my Coaching accreditation with the Association for Coaching.
It was quite a challenging process but I’m so glad I did it. Only a small percentage of Coaches are accredited by a professional association as well as being certified. Knowing that I was one of them really boosted my confidence and somehow gave me the validation I needed to go back into the Corporate world as an Executive Coach.

My Personal Journey to Self-Esteem & Confidence

I haven’t always been this confident and assertive.
My school friends can’t believe the way I’ve turned out. One of them uses me as an example to her teenage daughter struggling with self-esteem and confidence.
Meantime friends and colleagues from later life can’t believe that I was bullied at school.

The Power of Girlfriends

One day a few weeks ago I went to bed deliriously happy.
Then the same thing happened again last week. I was literally lying in bed with a big grin on my face.
The common denominator?
I’d been out with one of my closest girlfriends on both occasions.

How To Be Acceptably Assertive As A Woman

Slightly strange title that, isn’t it?
How To Be Acceptably Assertive As A Woman
However, the fact is that it’s genuinely challenging to be a woman, to be assertive and for that to be accepted.
Hence why one sees so many examples of women being unassertive both in work situations and life in general.

Coaching Insights (Volume 6) The Power of Listening

One of my favourite psychometric tools is the EQ-i 2.0. It’s a really insightful and fascinating exploration of 15 different facets of Emotional Intelligence.
Every time I use the EQ-i 2.0 it adds enormous value to the Coaching process and provides big “a-ha!” moments for my clients.  
Last week was no exception.
