Why would you want to be coached or mentored by me?
A good question, if you want to achieve your potential or solve challenges at work or in life, then my approach to coaching should suit you. We can explore your short, medium and long term goals, find your key motivators and harness them to help you achieve whatever you wish. You will set the goals and any boundaries you want for the sessions. I believe learning should be fun as well as effective and to this end my coaching/ mentoring sessions work with these underpinning them. The sessions can flex around your needs. My end goal is to assist you in developing your inner coach, harnessing your drive to achieve future goals. My approach focuses on your future and what skills you have now to make it a success as well as ones you may wish to develop. I believe in ethical future focused solutions, if does not fit your requirements then another coach may be better.
What do I bring to coaching sessions?
In addition to all the coaching training I have undertaken. I have over twenty years of coaching, working at executive level in business and higher education. I have worked at a local, regional and national level in dentistry. I ran a large mixed practice for over 25 years. This has given me a great range of experience to call upon, if needs be.
“Alasdair really helped me deal with emotions, personality traits, long standing self-doubt and the weaker areas of my motivation and drive”. AS
“Coaching was a “focused positive discussion”. AS
“Alasdair guided without me feeling directed. What emerged was very positive; me sorting out solutions to my problems whilst Alasdair guided me where necessary by focusing me on improve existing positive traits and habits”. AS
“Alasdair’s coaching was a key factor in my personal development. Four years later and from a start aged early 40’s, I have returned to work, become self-employed and now employ others. Prior to the coaching I felt this type of career path was beyond me”. - AS
Alasdair came highly recommended by a colleague and friend and after my first session with him I could see why. His method of coaching is systematic and practical, offering realistic solutions and techniques that simply work. I found it incredibly useful and empowering, not only in my day to day business life, but also in life in general, helping me to set goals, tackle change and sustain improvements in my work and life patterns. Alasdair immediately put me at ease with his approachable, friendly manner and definitely got the best out of me in each session, kindly following up and checking in on how I was doing each time. I would not hesitate to recommend him or to continue to work with him in the future. Maria Richards - www.in-finityliteracy.co.uk
Alasdair's intellect and emotional intelligence achieves results. I highly recommend his non-intrusive approach and cognitive reasoning. Cllr, Ian Morrell
