Seven Wonders of Achievement – by David Finney

Was there a time when you once said, 'one day I am going to ….…’ and then didn’t get round to do whatever it was you said you were going to? Maybe that day has now come; when we set ourselves goals we face an interesting dilemma: do we make the goal small that it can be easily achieved or do we make it so large that it feels too big to conquer? When facing a career or lifestyle crossroads, there are numerous things to consider.

My Studies Have Changed My Life – by Penny Barker

My self-development journey has taken me full circle through a career as a veterinary surgeon, programme manager and management consultant and back again. My first experience of coaching was on the Leadership Programme for one of the Big 4 consultancy companies. I was writing my business case for promotion and through the coaching process, I realised that whilst it was a great job that paid well, it didn’t fit in with my personal values. I wasn’t desperately unhappy, but something just wasn’t right. I ended up writing my business case to leave the firm and return to vetting, taking a considerable salary cut but doing something I loved.

The Perfect Dance of Rapport - by Debbie Robinson

Have you ever noticed how conversation just seems to flow when two people are in rapport? Their bodies as well as their words match each other. Just watch a couple in a restaurant or friends meeting in a pub, they dance the dance of rapport!

Blitz Procrastination And Change Your Life - From The Coaching Academy

Your procrastination habits may seem to be very deep rooted and, indeed, they probably are. But that doesn’t mean they can’t be changed. Forget everything you have ever been told about laziness, tardiness, lack of application and short attention span; procrastination is about how we think. More specifically, it is about how we allow certain thoughts to morph into beliefs. If we are serial procrastinators then we will have some underlying beliefs that are getting in the way of action.

I Never Looked Back! My Coaching Journey – by James Banfield

My story began on a train journey a few years ago. I had been studying self-help and development all of my adult life, and because of my friendly curious nature, people tended to open up to me and would like to talk through their problems and concerns. This evening was no different, a friend of mine was having a difficult time at work and was considering handing in his notice. We talked through all of the angles and I reassured him that whatever he decided, it would all work out in the end. Then something unexpected happened - Just as he was getting up to leave he turned and said, "You would be a great life coach." It was like a bolt of lightning had just hit me! I didn't even know exactly what a life coach was, but something told me that this conversation was meant to happen and I had to do something about it.

How To Create An Environment For Success – By Bev James

Do you ever feel that you are not fulfilling your true potential? Are there things about your lifestyle, choices or experience that may be holding you back? Our environment is made up of surroundings and influences that are familiar to us. It is the place where we can be ourselves without really trying. It is also made up of our thoughts and behaviours – the habits of daily life.

Making Your Soul Sing – By Bev James

Whenever someone asks how you are, how do you reply? “I’m great!”, “I’m fab, thanks!” or something else equally as positive and enthusiastic? Or is it more often the case that you reply with “I’m ok”, “I’m getting there”, or “Not bad”? If we’re being honest with ourselves, many of us tend towards the latter. Why? Because we’re settling for lives that are less happy than they could be.

Coach in The Spotlight - Sarah Bramall

I sensed the excitement as I walked into the room of the TCA’s free 2-Day event in March 2016. I sat down next to a lovely lady who introduced herself and we immediately formed a friendship, which endured as we supported each other through our coaching qualification.
