Use Coaching To Unlock Your Potential!
Coaching supports you to recognise the two conversations that go on – and on – inside you. There’s the one about what you really want, and the other about why you can’t have it. Coaching will support you to make empowered choices about which one to live your life by. By learning to manage these conversations better, you unlock your potential. That will give you your best chance of living the life you know you deserve.
EVERY ONE of us has a dream, a goal, a passion, a lifestyle that we want to pursue. Set against that we have beliefs that limit us. You might want to start your own business, but believe deep down that you don’t have the skills, or can’t afford the risk. Getting fit, getting educated, finding the right relationship partner. In all of these areas there is something that you would most likely have if you could and you were honest with yourself. Weighing heavily on anyone is the belief that it’s too late, that you’re not good enough, that life doesn’t work like that, and so on. Coaching supports you to recognise these two conversations as they exist inside you and to make empowered choices about which one to live your life by.
Coaching turns life’s unprecedented challenges into opportunities
Modern society presents people with unprecedented challenges and opportunities. There is the opportunity to create your own path and fulfil your destiny. Conversely, there is the challenge to define yourself without the strong social reference points of religion, job, social class that past generations relied upon.
There is the opportunity that technology presents for unprecedented personal marketing, communication and commercial leverage. On the other hand, there’s the challenge of managing your time and staying abreast of developments.
You can have the life you dream of or you can have your reasons why not, but you can’t have both. A coach can set you on the path to self-sufficiency so that you achieve the life you know you deserve.
There are unprecedented opportunities for education and wealth creation. The problem is, those knowledge and wealth creation strategies become obsolete as quickly as you learn them.
Therefore, you need self-management and life management in a way that you never did before. Coaching steps into this space. Coaching is a way of becoming self-sufficient in a world where you need self-sufficiency more than ever. It delivers principles and practices that are relevant to all areas of life. That means the corporate work space, the small, privately-owned business space and in people’s personal lives.
HOW COACHING WORKS
THE EXACT nature of each coaching process will vary according to your own requirements and personal learning style. Here are some key elements:
It’s important that you commit to the required number of sessions for each phase at a regular time. Naturally we’ll deal with exceptions as they arise, however you’ll discover that commitment, and being able to make plans and stick to them, is a vital part of the process.
You’ll be asked to set definable, measurable goals for the coaching cycle. You don’t have to do that before you approach me, we’ll do it in partnership as part of the kick-off process. During each session we’ll design the best next steps to achieve those goals.
In addition to designing best next steps, I’ll lead a process of asking relevant and powerful questions that expose and break down mental and emotional blocks and barriers to achieving the stated goals.
Two parallel streams of content
Throughout the process, in parallel to your own objectives for each session, I will introduce models or “distinctions”. These are presented in a way, and in an order, that will enable you to build a big-picture awareness of how we human beings create our reality. In addition, you’ll learn what you can do to leverage that awareness.
You will be asked to turn your awareness into practices that can become habits. These new habits will feed back into your way of being until you become naturally enthused, energised, inspired and confident.
Your full engagement will enable you to discover and develop a new identity that will naturally enthuse and empower you and that plays to your strengths. This will emerge, no matter what has happened in the past, no matter what your current circumstances, no matter what your age.
At the end of the process we will use behavioural and other hard evidence to assess the level of achievement of your goals. Based on this, we will co-create on any forwarding actions that will support you to continue the growth path into the future.
Winning all the top 2007 PRISM Awards for PR Excellence was the final exclamation point and validation of the coaching work that Neil had done with me some months earlier – plus my company enjoyed its best year ever in revenue terms.
I believe in myself more and have more confidence as a direct result of coaching with Neil. I would recommend the process for anyone looking to achieve a similar goal. It’s made a big difference to my life and career.
Coaching with Neil has added enormous value in terms of my career as an entrepreneur and consultant. My ability to evaluate opportunities and make good decisions is better than ever—plus I have more time with my family!
I found the interventions massively beneficial and my level of awareness in particular is at an all time high. The benefits of this and the visible impact on my business and personal life are immense.
Coaching with Neil was tough, but it helped me to focus on what I want out of situations and people, at home and at work. Also, to create definable steps towards the lifestyle I desire and the person I aspire to be.
The impact on my personal and work-life has been amazing. Taking control of what happens to me has changed me from a victim into a successful leader at work and a happier being with success in all areas of my life.
Stimulating, awakening, cutting to your inner, hidden self. Rewarding, very worthwhile, very necessary. The process is important to experience if you are truly looking to better yourself.
I attended [the Authentic Success Program] looking for answers to improve my life. I leave knowing that I held the answers all the time, I just have to apply a few simple principles in order to activate them.
Neil was brilliant at presenting [the Authentic Success Program] and supported us through the process. I am confident that it will send me on the life path I have been seeking for so long.
If you think you don’t need “authentic success” you are ready for this program. It will open up a new world of possibility you never knew existed. I would recommend it for anybody looking to improve their life.
The experience opens one’s eyes to the possibility of taking control of one’s future – not being a rudderless ship but rather one that is on course in the sea of life. I’m sure it will make a difference for others too.
