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 to every problem you want to solve can be found within you. However, 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... That's where we come in!

Our Sessions

We know that you need to connect with a coach and learn to trust them. So, we offer an initial one-hour meeting, free of charge, to see if you feel comfortable with us.

We like to tailor the coaching to suit you and the agenda is driven by you.

 

We have some great tools to help you and we have some recommendations of exploring your purpose, values and strengths at the start. 

We offer online and face-to-face coaching so neither distance nor global pandemics can stand in the way of you getting the coaching you need.

 
Our Structure

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 explore it further. In a really natural way we will take you through a solution-focused process to help you gain a full picture and ask you questions to help you discover a way forward. 

 

 
Our Feedback
"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
"I really enjoyed working with Sarah. She was an astute and generous listener, helping me see things from an objective point of view.  There were times in the sessions that were challenging and she was not phased by this and, while being empathetic and sensitive, was resolute in moving through to a point of learning or revelation. "
 
Our Approach

We believe that coaching works best in a style that suits 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.
