  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. One to One online - benefits

    One to One online - benefits
    We are having a great deal of interest in our ability to adapt our training courses. Since the start of lockdown, we have been delivering online training, and we have learnt how to provide it correctly. It requires a particular skill set, and I am personally very proud of how we have adapted to accommodate. One thing that has particularly...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...

  8. How confident are you after lockdown?

    How confident are you after lockdown?
    There is so much hype about the slow release of lockdown, I felt myself asking what does this look like for you? I know what it looks like for me but what about you? We all interpret situations in different ways, our world is based on our own fear. Some people live physical fear, some of us live with fear...
  9. Do the thing you fear most, FIRST

    Do the thing you fear most, FIRST
    It is such a natural thing to do, put something off because we are afraid of the outcome... Or is it the perceived outcome? Quite often the outcome is nowhere near as bad as we think.  I have spoken to many people about this at training events and without a doubt, everyone agrees. Is it not the case that what...
  10. Now is the time to communicate

    Now is the time to communicate
    Well many of us have been in lockdown for some weeks now, and there is no doubt it has affected us in very different ways. Many people have struggled, and some people are (believe it or not) enjoying it! A recent survey by YouGov poll suggests many people see positives amid the crisis. One thing that is apparent now more...
