As leaders of ourselves, we write a new chapter of our story each day. Sometimes though we are unsure of what to write and a coach can help you rediscover the direction you want to take your story. Everyday Leader believes that the answer for something you want to solve can often be found within you. However, sometimes there is often so much going on in our heads that we need a coach to help tease it out and plan the direction of travel.
We know that you need to connect with a coach and learn to trust them.
So we offer an initial meeting (1 hour), free of charge, to see if you feel comfortable.
Our first session will use Strengthsfinder survey to help you discover the key strengths you have. We look at the life wheel to examine balance in life that you have and want to generate.
Each following session is driven by your agenda. We recommend 2 hour sessions.
Every session is unique to you. We will start by asking the question, 'how can I help you today?' As you talk through the issue we will ask you questions to help you exploreWe use the OSCAR structure to our coaching. It helps you examine the key issue and possible solutions.

"Being coached by Colin has been the most useful leadership training I’ve ever had and guess will have. He has coached and enabled my leadership strengths meaning I can be an integral & authentic leader, more importantly be myself." - Heather
"An enlightening experience that was daunting to start with. It has allowed me to evaluate myself at this poignant moment in my life." - Melanie
We believe that coaching works best in a style that works for you. So, for some clients we use visual or concrete items to help visualise how things could work. We can help by modelling strategic approaches with you to find different solutions. If you find yourself stuck, or in need of some inspiration, we will also offer you some relevant thinking or diagrams on the topic to help develop your next steps.
"I felt pretty low at the beginning of my last session and doubted that would change, but Colin’s expert coaching gave me a very real sense of ‘I can do this … I do have what it takes, and it’s all for the right reasons.’ I surprised myself and felt so much more on top of the issue that was weighing me down." - Martine
"Colin's approach has been fantastic. Patiently listened and tailored a solution to my own personality." - Danny
