8 Things to Include in a Daily Journal - By Bev James

Keeping a journal is something people have done since ancient times – and for good reasons. Journals serve a variety of purposes, from simply recording our thoughts and feelings, to being a personal outlet when we need one. They also offer a reminder of where we’ve been and what we’ve achieved, and can function as mission statements for where we want to go. While some people associate hard copy journals with troubled teenagers, they couldn’t be more wrong: journals are excellent tools for anyone who’s mindful of themselves, and of their life.

Chris Cooper - Coach in the Spotlight - My Journey into Coaching

I made the decision at the start of 2016 that I wanted to change my career. Specifically, I realised that I no longer wanted to work for somebody else. Having left my previous job as Operations Director for a sports company, I started working for a friend’s company as a project manager on a freelance basis. I soon liked the freedom and creativity that came from my freelance work.

Personal Growth Through Coaching - Three Levels of Self-discovery by Ro Gorell

The topic of personal growth really resonates with me because as a coach I want to be congruent when coaching others, either individually or in groups. If I am asking my client to step outside their comfort zone, I too want to experience what that is like. The coaching relationship is co-created: your coaching identity grows as your client learns and grows.

Cultivating an Adventurous Spirit - Say Yes! By Bev James

Like every other animal on the planet, humans are creatures of habit. Habit creeps into every aspect of our lives, from eating the same meals every night and going to the same bars every weekend, to jetting off on the same types of holiday every year. We sometimes think we've got the monopoly on what pleases us, and so replicate those experiences again, and again, and again, until they become routine. Consequently, we feel safe and comfortable, and perhaps content, but not necessarily fulfilled.

The One Question To Ask When Your Client Has Exhausted All Avenues - Dan Crompton

I love surprises. Some people prefer predictability and consistency, but I thrive on not knowing what's going to happen next. In coaching, the best surprise comes when you ask questions with genuine interest and no hidden agenda, to see what will happen. Both you and the client can be surprised by what comes out as the answer, and it can take the coaching session - and the client's life - in a totally new direction.
