Executive Coaching Melbourne- Testimonials

‘It took me a while to find a leadership coach I wanted to work with, and I feel incredibly lucky to have come across Michael, who has the right mix between personable but professional and supportive but honest feedback. At first I knew there were areas I wanted to work on, but I couldn’t put my finger on what they were. Michael not only helped me identify these areas, but then grounded and rooted me in my own values, strengths and purpose which has helped realign me with my own goals and direction. “


Personal Leadership – Your Failures Make Your Successes

When it comes to our personal leadership, ‘Your failures make your successes so much more meaningful’. Do you take the time to truly ‘own’ both? What I mean is – can you truly embrace your failures and see them for what they were? Where you went wrong? What you could have done different?
Do you truly embrace your successes? Celebrate them and enjoy them rather than brushing straight past them?
I realised after reading this quote and staying ‘with it’ for a while that I hadn’t really embraced my failures – I really hesitated in calling them failures! But that is what they were. Wasted time, or effort that did not work out as planned. Opportunities that didn’t work out – others that actually set me back. I may have called them ‘learning opportunities’, but they were still failures. 
Why this focus? Because without the dark there is no light. Successes are so much sweeter when we can truly embrace what hasn’t worked. In about 2 days I can announce a great win with a new program – and it will truly feel sweet (!), in part because of recognising what it took to achieve it.

Thank you Melbourne!

Thank you Melbourne! So easy to forget where we were only 2 months ago. Today – 0 infections, 0 deaths and 0.0 14 day rolling average. The numbers don’t lie. Like any business result, these numbers have taken extraordinary effort, sacrifice, and the efforts of many – most of who are unnamed and go unthanked. To all of the people of Melbourne – thank you ❤️❤️❤️

Executive Coaching Has Many Real And Tangible Benefits

What are the real and tangible benefits to executive coaching? Have you ever distracted yourself to inaction? ??‍♂️ Avoided a problem that you know needs addressing? ??‍♂️ Got halfway through writing a list and started actioning an item, rather than finishing the list?

These are some of the reasons that I, and my clients, appreciate about the executive coaching process. Coaching provides an opportunity to look at an issue or problem uninterrupted, without distraction, with someone who’s only purpose is to ensure that you achieve your outcome. Sometimes it can be just about exploring options, other times working through an issue or seeking alternatives, others it is about challenging your assumptions. 

Executive Coaching Provides Time To Reflect

Sometimes hearing your ideas reflected back at you, or with a metaphor or image that brings it all together, is all that you need to move forward on an issue you were stuck with.

With distractions of every form at our fingertips 24/7, it can be hard to focus time to think and problem solve. Coaching can be part art, part science, part intuition – just like our thought processes.

Working with leaders to solve problems and take on new challenges is one reason why I love to coach – and have a coach myself. 
What are you avoiding that you could do with focussing on right now (instead of reading social media?)
