Being a Specialist v Jack of all Trades

I’ve been triggered to write this post by the John Lewis advert for House Insurance. ‘Ridiculous’ was my first response and then I remembered that I’d thought the same when I heard about Sainsburys Bank. I’ve been thinking about this for a little while before writing as in my employed world I was always a…

I Procrastinate

Really? I hear this comment a lot and I’m often seeing people posting on facebook and Twitter that they are procrastinating a lot today.  My first response is to query that.  I think it is often easy to label our behaviour like this rather than admit to ourselves what is really going on.

What will coaching do for me?

It’s a question that has come up often in the years since I began my coaching practice.  It’s one that can’t be answered simply.  A good coach will tailor the session to meet your needs at the time you meet with them. I’m writing this after having a session with my coach.  What did I…

Rolling with the changes

It’s so easy to decide that you are going to work on a project or a goal.  At the start motivation is high and you feel strong and determined.  What happens when you hit a hitch though? This is where you really prove your mettle or where you may need some help. I set off…

New Year Inspiration

I’ve just spent a morning reading a lovely book I was given for Christmas (thanks Jude!).  It was a story of correspondence between a lady in New York and the head buyer of a book store in London.  There were many points of the book that triggered thoughts for me.  At a time when many…
