“If you want something you have never had, then you must be willing to do something you have never done.”
– Thomas Jefferson –
When I was producing and coaching JK from Jamiroquai I learned a lot about how to get the best out of good people. Bjork, Joss Stone, Daniel Beddingfield, to name a few. Over the years there have been many and I gave my help for them to reach their goals and unlock their full potential and I would love to help you with yours.
Imagine what we could do together?
It doesn’t matter if you are A list or hold a C-suite position, an entrepreneur or run your own PLC. Chances are you are doing well at what you know how to do. But leadership can be lonely and coupled with the pressure of trying to be ‘perfect’, can take its toll. Burn out these days is high and who said that to make a difference or to have an impact, needs to be driven by stress or eighteen hour days? Imagine what you could do with a solid sounding board, a trusted confidant, someone who genuinely wants to get the best out of you. Over the years I have developed deep coaching skills to help people make important changes, amazing changes. Trust us, amazing things can happen. Your first step: pick up the phone. Let’s talk. I can help you uncover your deeper skills, new abilities (and perhaps even some of your liabilities.) to shape a plan for your better future, in the most positive and powerful way.
Why ‘Cognitive Consultant’?
I am fascinated in “what makes people tick”. I nourished my fascination and went back to school. For three years I studied Neuro Linguistic Programming, Cognitive Hypnotherapy and Solution Focused Supervision. These academic disciplines polished and deepened the skill sets I used to develop world class artists.
What I learned most of all was how much we run on auto-pilot (our unconscious) and how little we are governed by what we consciously think. Being able to use the powers of our unconscious motivations unleashes potential we usually only dream about.
A little about Al
I have spent the last thirty or so years getting the best out of people. Twenty plus of those years were in the music industry. As a record producer I was lucky enough to work with some world renowned artists. This work was up close and personal in a creative and pressured envioronment. To be involved in this process was truly amazing. I worked really hard alongside other who were prepared to commit to the goal, and won my fair share of awards (Gold, silver, platinum disc’s and a Grammy) along the way. I have always loved helping people to overcome their obstacles, fears and worries by empowering them, not just teaching them. Today I am happy to be able to use my new skill sets with my new clients, making ‘a new kind of music together’ and I love seeing the changes that we can make possible.
I work with people by invitaion or referral. This helps me to keep my client list small and unique. This is only because I am always looking for the best fit with any prospective client. Please feel free to take a look around my website because it doesn’t matter if someone you know has sent you here or you feel that serendipity is responsible, then it is time to reach out. After all, it’s just a conversation, isn’t it?
