If you are wondering about the key benefits which you get from being coached – and the Frequently Asked Questions don’t quite give you what you need – this post is for you.

To make the post stand out I have turned it into a podcast.  Keep an eye out for the microphone graphic across the site in future, as it will signpost audio resources.

This post includes an interactive section calling for you to write down your responses.  You will therefore need to have pen and paper handy and to pause the recording to allow yourself thinking time.

(NB Keep hold of your written response though, as it will help you prepare for your first coaching session).

Having found out about the three key benefits of being coached tell me – via the Contact page – what else you would like to know, before you decide to book a coaching programme.  I’m happy to supply the final details you need to reach your decision.  I look forward to supporting you on your journey.

Well-Being: Inspirational Thinking


Candle Flames

An Inspirational Thought

With less than 12 hours until 2014 arrives, in the UK at least, I think some inspirational words from the US are in order.

The inspiration message was offered at last summer’s May 30th 2013 Harvard commencement ceremony.  It’s available in full online, if you want to Google it.  The speaker was the hugely successful entrepreneur Oprah Winfrey.

The key take away messages?  Well-being matters.  Goals can be hard to reach.  You will be OK if you follow the direction of your own inner voice.

Enjoy this extract.  Feel free to share it, or contribute your own inspirational quote too, via the Contact page or Twitter @RogerD_said.


Oprah Winfrey

“…From time to time you may stumble, fall, you will for sure, count on this, no doubt, you will have questions and you will have doubts about your path. But I know this, if you’re willing to listen to, be guided by, that still small voice that is the G.P.S. within yourself, to find out what makes you come alive, you will be more than okay. You will be happy, you will be successful, and you will make a difference in the world”.

Work: How Is It For You?

The Guardian’s Work section contains an interesting query today.  The situation must be familiar to anyone who has had a difficult boss.

The situation seems to involve a capable member of staff and a hostile manager.

It makes me wonder what your 2014 work goals are? What support will you need to make your plans come true? Why not get in touch and make coaching part of your strategy. I look forward to hearing from you.
