My Coaching Methods

When you hire me as your coach, your success is my first and only priority! I have no agenda, I have no interest in converting you to my point of view or telling you how to live your life. Instead I ask questions, I make observations, and I make challenges to you to push your limits or help you try on a new perspective.I am not always gentle: there are times when I can ask painful questions. There are times when I will push you out of your comfort zone. There are times when I will make a lot of challenges. Many of my past clients have called me a slave driver, and for good reason: I want to see you at your best!

If that means I have to call you at six in the morning to chase you out of bed, come over to your house and throw clutter out, or take you along for a morning jog when then that is what I will do! What I won’t do is coddle you; feeling warm and fuzzy has its place, but in a coaching session it shows that we are off track.

Nor will I tell you what to do. For a coach to be effective, he can’t afford to tell you what to do or what to think. If you don’t change on your own of your own free will, the changes you make, however important and positive, will not last.

I prefer to work with clients one-on-one in a brainstorming session once per week by telephone, and then stay in contact by email and short calls as we need through the week. I do not charge by the hour, and I am not selling you sessions: I am selling you my commitment to help you become a better, healthier and happier man.

I am also happy to work with couples: if your marriage is in rough shape, I will sit you both down and hash things out, but I am not a marriage counsellor! I will challenge you to be honest with one another, I will push you both to be the best spouses you can be, and I will help you both build happy lives outside the home so that you can make the most of the one you have in it.
