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.

Coach in the Spotlight - Rachael McNidder

Wednesday 12th January 2016 was a grey, cloudy, cold and damp day. As I entered the Copthorne Hotel in Birmingham, about to embark on The Coaching Academy’s free 2-Day Foundation in Life Coaching event, my heart was pounding with both nerves and excitement.

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.

In the words of Michael Jackson: "I'm starting with the man in the mirror, I'm asking him to change his ways and no message could have been any clearer, if you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make that change".
