There’s an age old saying – ‘A change is as good as a rest’. The definition? You can get as much good from changing the work you do as from having a rest. We all know that resting our minds and our brains is vital for our overall well being. In today’s world it has...

Nature, your personality and coaching

26 April 2020, 08:42

We live in a world whereby now, more than ever, the majority of us live in urban settings. We live in a world whereby we are constantly connected to technology, connected to always ‘on’, connected to the road runner culture. Connected to the pace, to the sprint, to the expectations that we set ourse...

This week had me thinking differently about the current climate we’re in. It was triggered again when I was working with a 1-1 coaching client and while out for my run in a Dublin park this morning (all while social distancing of course!), I thought about it some more! It is all around a tool&...

High potential talent & mountain navigation

31 January 2020, 08:15

Recently, I headed for the Wicklow mountains to build on my mountain skills. We got lost, we travelled on routes we never had been before. I turned the map around more times than a spin top. I used a compass and worked out direction, duration and journey… a skill that I’ll take with me in....

Clarity through nature

24 January 2020, 06:51

Over the past couple of weeks I immersed myself even more than my usual dosage into the outdoors and nature. Given the time of year, there can be a lot of excuses to stay inside. But, I needed to get out. I needed clarity. So, I hit the mountains for hikes, mountain runs and when...

Part 4 of 4: Where there’s a will, there’s a way…

06 December 2019, 06:42

In this final post on the coaching GROW model, we look at Will. The whole purpose of this final stage of this model is to transform and move the talk to the action. Like G (Goal), R (Reality) and O (Options), this too can be used with self coaching. Given the work that you have...

Part 3 of 4: Because we all have options….

29 November 2019, 06:39

Over the past two weeks we looked at Goals and Reality, the first two parts of the GROW coaching model. Once a goal and the reality (the actual reality based on facts!) is established, now it is time to look at your options. Often times when we are being coached, we cannot see the wood......

Last week’s Friday Diaries looked at how to clarify your goals for YOU. This week as part of the GROW coaching model, this week focuses on the R… Reality! Most of us think that we are objective when we look at our own goals. A little truth here… we’re not! Often times we tell ourselves&#...
