My coaching journey with TCI began in March 2007 as a Diploma student. Having left a successful 30+ year global corporate, I had been out on my own contracting in my ex CIO peer space for a few years when I realized that it no longer made me “leap out of bed”.
My interest in a coaching career had been piqued when I worked with a coach to help transition into my own business and thought to myself – that’s what I was born to do… I have and still do keep working with different coaches myself to keep me on top of my game.
I had been reading a personal development book a month for 20 years and chose to write my own IP around a range of “soft skills” that differentiate average from highly successful business players. I have shared insights from my work in a blog each week for the last four years and still do at: www.letstalkcoaching.wordpress.com.
I’ve always said one day I’ll write a book. In 2012 I wrote down as a dated goal to find my editor and publisher and get my first book published. Six months later it was done and Life Learnings of a Life Coach was published. In it I captured the most prevalent insights from all my coaching work.
It underpins the work I do as an executive life coach perfectly, where I coach, mentor and groom corporate executives, business owners and professionals to raise their game and be the best they can be.
It’s been a wonderfully successful journey and now I’m back to “leaping out of bed” to do what I was born to do, every day. So if you want to do something – anything - badly enough, go on: define it and set a goal and go after it. And if you choose TCI to help you along the way, you will have chosen wisely.
