Welcome to Coach Place! I’m so excited to have you here: a place where you’ll have access to daily doses of practical and thought-provoking insights to support and energise your personal development.
Believe it not, right now is a spectacular time for change and growth. As of today, we are knee-deep in a global pandemic. The uncertainty is significant, but so is the opportunity. This might just be your moment to truly own your strengths and explore those big ideas and goals that have been simmering away for goodness knows how long.
Our aim is to help you become the best version of you. To unlock your real potential. According to Gallup’s State of the Global Workplace report, 85 per cent of employees are not engaged (or even actively disengaged) at work, with most giving employers their time, but not their best efforts or ideas. It’s a massive pool of unleveraged potential – and I don’t want that to include you. Life is meant to be lots of things, but it’s not meant to be boring or average.
Let me introduce myself as the founding director of The Coach Place Global
Over the past 20 years, I’ve had the opportunity to work with incredible humans around the world. As a success coach, I’ve partnered with an array of global corporate organisations, CEOs, celebrities, elite athletes, media personalities, senior leaders and other talented individuals – spending thousands of hours coaching and inspiring others to achieve greatness. Now, I want to share what I’ve learnt with you. I believe the team I’ve built has some of the most talented coaches in the world, and we have big plans for how their knowledge will add value to your Coach Place experience.
As founding director of The Coach Place Global, I’m committed to creating an experience that is not just about content, but about inspiring real change. About opening your mind to new possibilities. And about helping you learn more about you.
What to expect
Over the coming months, you’ll hear from a range of amazing leaders, writers, entrepreneurs, coaches and more, who will challenge your thinking, encourage you to reflect and offer strategies for change. Yep. It’s all happening.
For the past year, we have been developing our plan to share everything we know, see and question in our coaching lives. Our content will explore global hot topics, keep you informed of the latest research, share helpful resources and offer extra inspiration to store up your sleeve. There’ll be plenty to keep you busy.
Let’s get started
As you come to know me and our team, you’ll discover a few things. One is that I’m known for provoking people. In polite speak I’m known as ‘direct’. I ask difficult questions and dismiss the excuses that hold people back. Through Coach Place, we will give you questions to ponder and strategies to action.
And on that note, here are some coaching tips to ease you in:
- Some people won’t like your commitment to personal growth or your future success. That’s OK.
- Motivation is not nearly as important as what you’re committed to. Motivation passes. Commitment creates momentum.
- No one is coming to fix anything for you. Good emotional health, strong bodies and personal success rarely happen accidentally.
- Happiness and achievement do not come from how talented or smart you are. Do the work required and watch what happens.
Thank you for joining us. See you on the other side! I’ll be here making sure we are relentlessly committed to producing content that serves you in being who you want to be in the world.
