Coach In The Spotlight - Helen Watts

It seems a little odd to be writing something about success when I feel like I'm only at the beginning of my coaching life - but perhaps there's something in there about celebrating the small steps forward towards our dreams... hmmm, those sound like coaching words to me!

Meet Coach In The Spotlight - Andrew Miller

As I progressed higher within the organisation for which I previously worked, I realised that I was more interested in people than in businesses and processes. I had not heard of coaching at this stage, but when a colleague mentioned it to me, I realised that I had been coaching people naturally all along.

Meet Coach In The Spotlight - Julie Hutchison

After taking maternity leave from the police I went back to my old role in 2008 but was less than inspired so had some coaching to help me work out what I wanted to do. I was on a conference for women in policing when I first realised that it was possible to re-train to do something much more inspirational. An ex-police officer was working as a coach at the conference and that was when I knew coaching was for me!

Coaching - Just Hippy, American Nonsense?

Absolutely not (I’m shouting that at high volume!). Americans have embraced and embedded coaching – in all of its forms, which they are to be credited for. Without a second thought or justification required, coaching is part of the US culture of personal development, going for gold, gutsy drive and determination made worthwhile by the results delivered.

Coach In The Spotlight - Dawn Cilssett

I am a continuous learner which I regard as a good thing. I am highly reflective with a tendency for over-thinking – not such a good thing! I can be opinionated and openly share my opinions if I consider them relevant to a discussion! Although I can be highly energetic and pro active, my natural default setting is one of sluggishness and daydreaming. So why’s this relevant?

Coach In The Spotlight - Launa Walker

The truth was that I realised I needed coaching as much as I wanted to be a coach, and with hindsight I think that is what my friend meant when she signposted me in this direction. I have always given 100% to my employer so I went into the qualification with gusto, thinking that it was time to do something for myself.
