Friday 20th June

By Clare Wildman / 21st June 2019 /

Today has been humbling. A big thank you to Gabriela, of Smiley Booth Northampton, we only met briefly at a networking event this morning and you’ve made a great impact on me! Not only with a beaming snide that is so infectious but also with your honest observation. As I drove home I recognised that…

Getting started

By Clare Wildman / 18th June 2019 /

One of the biggest problems I’ve seen over the years is that we don’t know what our goals are. When I started in this line of work I rather naively thought that clients would turn up at my door with a list of goals and we’d get to work making them happen. I’m wiser now…

Building Habits

By Clare Wildman / 11th June 2019 /

One of the most important principles I’ve learnt in my time as a coach is to know yourself and act accordingly. This is particularly useful when you are building new habits. So often I see people set the bar really high and then they find it is unrealistic and they struggle to suceed. On the…

Friday 7th June

By Clare Wildman / 7th June 2019 /

I have had what has felt like a bad week. That I haven’t achieved anything. It’s just been one of those weeks for me, I’ve ended it feeling a bit down and as if I’ve done nothing at all. This is the time when reflection is worth it’s weight in gold. It’s also why I…

It is making me realise that working as coach, especially as a self-employed once, you are very isolated. Not just personally but also in terms of your access to others for sharing purposes and in terms of you exposure to new methods and greater learning opportunities. My thoughts along these lines have been echoed by…

Monday 3rd June

By Clare Wildman / 3rd June 2019 /

My self development today is taking the form of an hour or two of reading. This book is fascinating. What has interested me today though is that I’ve felt very grown up in the way I’m reading it. For a change I’ve been able to skip a section as it’s not relevant to the information…

Developing Me

By Clare Wildman / 31st May 2019 /

After more than 10 years working as a life coach I’ve come across all sorts of developmental techniques and tools.  So many ‘ways to be’ and loads of self-development gurus.  All these influences have been interesting and there’s always something new to learn. What I have noticed, since day one, is that most (if not…

TUESDAY 28TH MAY

By Clare Wildman / 29th May 2019 /

Today is getting off to a very slow start.  Mike’s work for today was cancelled by text at about 4:30 this morning, he only spotted it as he headed out the door.  My regular Zoom call with my friend (also a coach) has been cancelled as she’s not feeling too well.  My afternoon coffee and…

Thursday 23rd May

By Clare Wildman / 23rd May 2019 /

Everything changes but who? Take That comes to Milton Keynes and it takes me half an hour to get my morning coffee.  My day has hit its first hitch.  It’s gone pretty smoothly so far.  Recharged the fitbit while I was getting ready to leave the house, remembered to put the bins out and have…
