  1. Positive, Mental Attitude

    Positive, Mental Attitude
    What is a positive mental attitude? There is a recurring theme in life that if you have a more positive mental attitude that you will be more successful, healthy, happier, and have more energy to deal with the adversity that life throws at you. From my performance coaching background, this is a mindset I have helped and guided others to...
  2. Confidence

    Confidence
    Confidence is such a vast area in all of us, have you ever reflected on how confident you are already, flipping it to a positive from a negative, thinking about it differently. In my coaching practice, confidence appears so often. I think sometimes people don't realise how confident they are already. The word confidence is interpreted in so many ways...
  3. What is shame?

    What is shame?
    Have you ever thought about what your shame is? We all carry shame in some way, for example, feeling embarrassed and guilty about something. Your belief system of not feeling good enough or others are better than you is not a nice feeling. As a coach, you need to be aware when your client sat in front of you the...
  4. Reflection on self-coaching a gratitude attitude

    Reflection on self-coaching a gratitude attitude
    In my coaching and supervision sessions, I hear so much negativity. I do like to shift the paradigm sometimes and ask for the positives if the situation allows this to happen. It seems strange to my clients when I ask a simple question like “What have you got to be grateful for”? In life, we have plenty to be positive...
  5. Effective question technique in coaching

    Effective question technique in coaching
    How important is questioning in coaching? Extremely important is the answer. How does it differ from questioning in training? It is very different. In training when you question, you question to get to an answer. You drive for the answers you want using open questions or good trainers do. You always know where you are going with your questioning. Coaching...
  6. Reflecting on your use of coping strategies

    Reflecting on your use of coping strategies
    What does coping mean? I often hear in my coaching sessions from my clients that they are coping. I always think about what the word coping means to them. I think some people may not even know or realise they are using coping strategies/mechanisms, the word coping is very subjective. Believe it or not, there are between 400- 600 strategies...
  7. Reflection in your work role

    Reflection in your work role
    I recently did a journal for teachers to reflect on their work role. How many of us do this, reflect on our work? I wrote the journal looking at reflection from a teacher's role, what their experiences of the day were and how could they change areas for the next time. That made me think that people still have not...
  8. What would you least like others to know about you.

    What would you least like others to know about you.
    When you look at yourself, really look at yourself a good question to ask is “What I don’t want to write about” This is a beneficial exercise to do as a coach. To recognise some areas in yourself, you would least like your client to know about. It is a really strange feeling to admit your faults, but as a...
  9. Shame, we all carry it but never talk about it.

    Shame, we all carry it but never talk about it.
    Shame is a word that people prefer not to pay attention to; people prefer to keep it hidden. The problem is that it becomes much more powerful, staying silent. The first question “What is shame to you”? Once you establish this you then need to ask yourself where does this come from, whose voices do you hear when shame creeps...
  10. Are you stuck in life?

    Are you stuck in life?
    Do you find yourself stuck in life? One of those questions you sometimes have to ask yourself as you face the day to day routine with no change. Some of us like this, the majority don’t, so why is this? Ask yourself the question what would you like to be different? Look at three areas in your life, career, life...
