The personal stuff
After a twenty year career in corporate communications and publishing I finally decided to pluck up the courage to listen to my gut instinct and become a coach and trainer. I won’t bore you with a hundred different reasons why and how I finally realised coaching was for me, other than it just gives me the greatest satisfaction and enjoyment. Something I’d pretty much lacked in the past few years of my career.
I was fortunate to be raised by two fantastic parents who gave me a great set of values to live by and always encouraged me to try my hand at anything, to not let setbacks hold me back and to continually seek to learn and develop myself. I’m now trying to do the same with my children.
I believe the world would be a better place and we’d all actually be a lot happier if we spent more time truly connecting, sharing and developing others rather than just looking for what we can get ourselves.
It’s one of the reasons I love rugby and played it for so many years. The sense of achievement, satisfaction and camaraderie you get from sharing the work, taking the knocks together and coming out the other side stronger as a team and as individuals, is a metaphor for life for me.
That’s the purpose of this site. To share what I learn, to stimulate minds, and encourage debate. You access this information on my articles and also free resources pages.I hope that people who share these values, who have a desire to continually seek to learn and improve will come here and find it useful.
Thank you for reading and I hope I can help in at least some small way.
