Free 30-minute Executive Coaching Sessions
Most of the leaders I am speaking to just now have experienced a rapid increase in pace and intensity of their work and private lives. Since March this year, we have all had to come to terms with major disruptions to our businesses and for many, there has been no slowdown. Far from it.
Businesses have had to transform and reinvent themselves to adjust to the new normal. A sizeable proportion of businesses are now working from home using virtual technology. Furthermore, one would expect that this would result in labour-saving hours, however, the very opposite has happened. The extra workload is also creating anxiety due to short-term productivity gains. Transformation programmes, which were planned to run over a number of years are now being delivered at break-neck-speed as businesses are having to evolve and adjust to keep pace with the new normal.
As leaders, you still need to have space to think strategically and prioritise effectively. Having a coach can be very beneficial and can help you to clarify your thoughts and focus on staying at the top of your game. If you have considered coaching and/or mentoring, please drop me a line. I am offering free 30-minute sessions to establish if there is a need in the business community to assist with the unprecedented and rapid changes we all find ourselves in due to Covid-19.
These sessions can be booked in with me directly via email firstname.lastname@example.org

“I recently started working with Andrew as my coach. Andrew is thoughtful, challenging and I particularly valued the questions he asked that helped me to see for myself that I needed to look at a certain situation from a different perspective ... letting me work out the solution for myself rather than telling me what he thinks I should do. I always look forward to our sessions together and have seen a change in my confidence, vision and energy over the time we have been working together.”
Andy Kierney, Head of Financial Controls & Process Improvement

“I’ve just had the pleasure of coaching sessions with Andrew through my PEL course and have to say it has been an amazing journey. Working with Andrew has helped me re-evaluate and remap my personal journey, something I certainly would have struggled on without Andrews thought-provoking sessions. I would highly recommend Andrew for any emerging leader looking for inspiration on their journey.”

“Working with Andrew gave me the time and space to focus on making decisions about what I actually wanted and what steps I needed to take to get where I wanted to go. His gentle focussed questions made me step back and think differently and as a result, I am looking at a new future. It's also interesting working with a coach who has a different background. I enjoyed that aspect very much, so don't narrow your options to your own sector!”

“Andrew is a superlative coach. The combination of his own experience and expertise, coupled with being a sincere and genuinely kind and lovely person, means not only do you instantly build a rapport with him, but his guidance is also consistently valuable and relevant. Not only would I highly recommend Andrew, I would now also count him as a friend and mentor.”
