philosophy

It’s a simple premise, but one that’s often disregarded during our education and negated by our employers. Oddly, convention focuses training and coaching on the areas where we lack natural ability, spending hours trying to fix our weaknesses and little time developing our strengths. This is damage limitation at best and it’s unrewarding. If you’re not a natural physicist or playwright, focused attention might mean you attain an average aptitude eventually but you’re never going to be Werner Heisenberg or Arthur Miller.

Conversely, when you put your true values, strengths and passions to work, you are much more likely to excel in your chosen career and find lasting satisfaction. This perspective forms the basis of my coaching approach.

Following this philosophy, my husband and I have been able to re-imagine our lives based on who we really are. It means we quit a flat in Covent Garden, central London for an old cow shed at the foot of a mountain in Wales, and changed our career paths to engage in work that feels utterly fulfilling.

How personal coaching works

I work with my clients via Skype, so you don’t lose time travelling. Session frequency is entirely up to you depending on what feels best – weekly, bi-weekly or monthly – and each one lasts 60 minutes. The number of sessions is up to you, but I usually recommend a minimum of three and a maximum of twelve.

To test it out I offer a free 30 minute introductory call, to learn more about you and your challenges, answer any questions you have about what coaching entails, give you a flavour of the type of things we’d cover, and to determine if I’m the right coach for you.

Following that call, if you’d like to sign up for 1:1 coaching I’ll send you an intake form to fill out and in some cases, an initial exercise to undertake, which matches the challenge you want to overcome or the overarching goal you want to achieve.

From that point on I’ll use a mixture of tools and techniques to help you get clear on what you want and why, tackle the fears and doubts that hold you back, and instigate the change that sets you on the path to a more meaningful, purposeful, fulfilling and successful career.

If this sounds like the kind of help you are looking for, sign up for a free 30 minute call so that we can explore working together.

How corporate coaching works

Corporate coaching for individual staff members or teams is usually a mix of face-to-face and Skype-based work. I take a full brief from my clients on the coaching needs of their employees and related organisational goals, and provide a full outline programme recommendation with costs for their consideration.

I work with executive leaders and their HR partners to develop and agree measurement criteria and confidentiality levels for different programme components. Each proposal is designed to match the bespoke needs of individual clients, so if you are interested in a discussion about the unique coaching needs of your firm and its staff, please email me at alison@livetrue.co.uk.
