What is a Life Coach? Some Definitions…
A life coach is someone who is employed by a client to:
- gain clarity about their life by understanding who they are; where they’ve come from; where they want to go and what’s stopping them
- unravel what is really important when there is a sense of overwhelm by prioritising and chunking it down
- act as a sounding board to consider concepts and ideas
- help them through transition periods
- be on their support team, offering different perspectives
- help them overcome fears, self-doubt and obstacles
- develop strategies for creating their ideal life and hold them accountable to implement the changes
What is a Life Coach? My Philosophical Construct
“I believe in really making the most of your life and remembering to stop and smell the roses. One of my friends went to bed one night at the age of 47 and never woke up. That makes you think about just how precious and magnificent life is. I’ve always loved helping people, perhaps because I grew up helping my parents with the family hotel businesses, but I’ve always found that in helping others we also help ourselves, often more so. The world around you is a reflection of you and how you perceive things, so if you change how you think, you also change how you experience life. Sometimes we become stuck with a particular problem or situation and it can help so much to have someone there for you; someone to have as a sounding board; someone who is on your side, both in business and in life. Sometimes we all need that little bit ‘extra’ inspiration to help us discover the ‘extraordinary’ that lies within us.”

There are many reasons why someone might use a coach – you might be asking yourself if you are on track to achieve the things you want; you might feel stuck; you might know that something needs to change; yet you may not know who to ask for help?
I offer coaching in several areas:

Executive Coaching can often be about adding new skill sets to managers who wish to advance their careers or possibly start up their own businesses.
It may include helping them with leadership skills, management strategies and often, communication skills.

One of them has a business which is owner centric and therefore unsaleable.
The owner is looking to retire and needs help to get the business in to good shape to be able to sell.
Since Tony has been working with him the owner has taken actions which he had previously put off and is now moving forward towards his goal.
The owner speaks highly of Tony and his whole demeanour and outlook on life and business is much brighter.
