Coaching for Work
I’m not a business consultant who will come in and advise you how to run your business. You are the industry expert and know your company so much better. Instead I will help you to live and work effectively within your organisation, to be the best working model of you, to make the most of the situation you find yourself in. I can do the same for members of your staff team as well if they have a recognised need to grow and develop.
Which of these do you recognise as areas you might benefit from developing in?
Your to-do list never gets shorter and even other people notice and comment on your lack of organisation and personal effectiveness. You’d like to be more punctual, better organised and not in such a flap, constantly fire-fighting, but you don’t have time to make any changes or you don’t know what to change.
Achieving Your Goals
Whether it is getting promoted, meeting your sales targets or expanding your business, your personal goals aren’t being met. You maybe haven’t revisited them in ages or changed the way you are pursuing them or you just need someone objective and external to whom you can make yourself accountable in order to achieve what you want.
Dealing with People
You’ve noticed that some of your dealings with your boss, your staff or your colleagues are less than ideal, characterised by you getting the wrong results from your interactions with them or you feeling less than ideal afterwards. Perhaps behaviours or attitudes about yourself or others need to be re-evaluated.
Values and Important Things
In the back of your mind there is the recognition that there are significant aspects of who you are and what is MOST important to you that are simply not being given expression. It isn’t life threatening, so they are not being dealt with, but part of you wonders how different and better your whole life could be if you focussed on what is really valuable to you.
What are you going do next?
If you have read this far, doing nothing and just putting up with the pain plainly isn’t in your thinking. Yes, making changes will have a cost involved, but if that is less than deaing with the situation you are currently working with, then it is time to set out on a journey towards different and better. Here are some other suggestions:
1. Sign up to the newsletter by clicking here or using the form in the footer below. I’ll send you the free values e-book you can work through and you’ll also receive occasional emails to challenge you to think about what is important in work and life.
2. Take 10 minutes right now to think about what’s most important to you at work but also in life, and if you are really giving that priority. If not, what could you change? What do you want to get from your work? As Simon Sinek says, how does it satisfy your ‘why?’
4. Get in touch for a chat. I’m always happy to be contacted and chat with you. I can pose questions and maybe make suggestions. If we agree that working together would be productive then future talks and walks would be chargeable, but this first call is free.
I’m happy to chat to you for free in the first instance, to see if coaching would benefit you and whether we ‘fit’ – I’d hate you to sign up for a series of sessions and decide after the first one that you don’t want any more (except in the unlikely event that we have dealt with all your topics in one go!)
