It's all about

YOU

what do you want?

Let's start with some questions.

  • Are you focussed on the future?
  • Do you take action rather than not?
  • Do you consider yourself a perfectionist?
  • Do you feel weak if you think of needing any support?
  • Do you often feel that you could be doing much, much more?

If you have answered yes to these questions, then I would love to have a conversation with you.

How can I be of service?

I have spent nearly thirty years focussed on getting the very best out of talented people. Over twenty of those years were as a record producer in the music industry of the nineties and noughties. I worked with individual artists and bands, to help them create something, usually from nothing. All of this work was under strict time and budget constraints with very little room for mistakes. It was a good proving ground for learning how to get the best out of myself and others, while working under pressure to still deliver great results.

This was where I learned a lot of my deep coaching skills.

We can truly thrive in our work environment simply by focussing our concentration on the outcome we desire and not wasting time focussing on the problems we might face, along the way. Working with people within this high-pressure environment really taught me how to trust in my own and others’ abilities. It didn’t matter if I was working one on one or with a team of people, my focus was always aimed at getting amazing results at the same time as keeping the artists on track. I earned a solid reputation for bringing the best out of whom ever I worked with. In my eyes this was only because we worked as a team to achieve the same goal. Trusting in our strengths and weaknesses, helping us to overcome obstacles, some real and some imagined.

This was achieved by offering a fresh perspective and letting them discover more of their abilities, push past any doubts, purely to get the best from them.

I work with individuals by invitation or referral. This helps me to keep my client roster small, unique and able to focus all my abilities on each person I work together with. This is because I am always looking for the best fit with any prospective client and I hate wasting anybody’s time, especially my own. Please take a look around my website because it doesn’t matter if someone you know has sent you here or maybe serendipity has helped you to find me.

Either way, all that matters is your next step because a phone conversation with me will only cost you some of your time.

What have you got to lose?

and What about your team?

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”

– African proverb* –

This is not about inspiration, it's all about transformation!

Helping any team become a better functioning, smoother working alliance is always fun. Showing people how to trust in themselves and the people they work with can be challenging and very rewarding. The language we use everyday to ourselves and our collegues has a direct impact on how we can perform, together as a team.

None of the work I do is pre set or pre formed. I work with the team of people in front of me, to help them overcome their obstacles in a solution focused way. It does not matter what they are doing but how they are doing it. This means that every time I work with a group of people, the way we work together changes from anything I may have previously done. While there may be similarities in the task or the obstacle, the people are different and have different agendas. Ergo, the work that we do together changes from project to project.

A breakdown in communication?

A breakdown in communication?

We all take it for granted.

Language.

How we talk, how we listen. What we mean when we say something. What we think others might mean when they speak to us. Problems will always arise through misunderstanding and miscommunication. I still find it amazing that people (including myself sometimes!) will get upset about an email because they dont like the tone. Yet the email has no ‘tone’. It is just words on a screen. How we interpret these words is important because we will the react to this interpretation. Communication is much easier face to face. We can guage the persons mood and demeanour to help us decipher the meaning to our conversation. Sometimes when these digital conversations get mis-interpreted or mis-read, the temperature escalates, the exchange becomes heated and the work process suffers as a result.

Explore a new way

Overcoming any challenge is not always an easy task but if you have a new way of looking at the obstacle in front of you then the solution can become more obvious than the problem.

Conflict Resolution.

Helping people to communicate more easily and to look differently at any situation they may face. To help reach more of their potential, individually or as a team. Understanding that we spend a vast amount of our day on ‘autopilot’ (in trance). How our emotions usually work for us and how sometimes, how they can start to work against us. In a gentle way, to help empower team members, to aid in their transformation towards becoming a better version of whom they currently are. Overcoming fears and worries, boosting confidence, helping people to think differently, about themselves and the obstacles they may face. Offering a unique way in helping to deal with modern day pressures at work by learning skills that can help to overcome them.

Confidentiality

All the work I do, with each of my clients, is held in the strictest of confidence. This has been a pre requisite of the work I do, since my music industry days. Where projects were made behind closed doors and could not be discussed or ‘shown’ to anyone, for months before their release. In my coaching work it is critical that confidentiality is maintained and as part of my therapy work, is part of the code of conduct and ethics I am bound by. For all my business, it is exactly the same. As will happen, on occasions, I will have access to sensitive information ahead of time, a launch or a restructure for example and as always, my confidentiality is strictly adhered to as part of my operational ethics.
