Improved Focus and Prioritisation
I came to David to coach me on improving the focus of my life and to be able to spend my time more productively.
I'd been referred by another of David's clients so had evidence of his proven results.
Prior to working with David, I found that I didn’t prioritise things effectively and too often spent time on issues that were easy to solve but relatively unimportant.
David was able to help me draw out my weaknesses and concentrate on resolving them. He was also very flexible with regards to sessions.
I would recommend David. He improved my approach to the way I tackle issues and helped me consider other people’s point of view, both professionally and personally.

Small Business Improvement
"David provides an excellent environment in which to hone down your goals and explore the options around how to achieve them. It has been a very valuable process and consequently I have implemented several systems within my business which I hadn't considered in the past. Thank you!"

I just wanted to touch base and thank you again. I found your session most useful. As a result of your coaching I have now managed to secure a role and have been working as a project manager since end of March.

Relaxed and Confident
"Initially I had doubts about the effectiveness of coaching techniques. I would never have considered coaching but when I heard David's talk, I knew I needed to take action.
I am now much more aware: I can relax more easily and I am making strides to improve my confidence levels by asserting myself more effectively. I also have a different perspective of success and my timelines are more realistic. David's relaxation technique was simply brilliant.
I've found that accepting help and being willing to challenge yourself is very important. David has been very patient with me and helped me to see things from a different perspective. He provided a point of focus. I truly enjoyed David's coaching and will continue to learn and use his techniques in my daily routine."

Personal /Business vision alignment
The coaching adds the part of my business I do not have as self employed individual – accountability. However target-driven I may be (and I am) I am only accountable to myself, and when I try to do too much (i.e. do not have enough focus on the important stuff), reasons (excuses) are found for not achieving things as a result of too much else needing to be done – but these really are excuses. This means that no goal had much hope of being achieved – the investment in the coaching meant that the business was able to grow because my focus was in the right place and I could build the proper foundations. Coaching is not a cost – it is an investment.
David worked with me in the way that I thought – I am a very pictorial person in my thinking, so some guided vision thinking and unwrapping the real rationale/ reasons/ motivations for the goals and what they would achieve for me meant that I could focus on the important stuff.
As importantly, David was able to keep me focussed – and keep drawing me back to core motivations and the reasons why I was doing something – and helping me to keep the eye on the bigger vision and the medium term plan.
I was not presenting the easiest challenge – a combination of needing to clarify and achieve sporting goals, business goals, educational goals – and David was able to flex and bend, keeping me on course as challenges to these goals were met, and as the goals themselves needed to flex as opportunities presented themselves too.
Having a small business and getting goals and plans in place is important – but more important is understanding why those goals are important and what they will mean when you achieve them – and this is the part David was so good at bringing out. The goals became more a part of me rather than numbers on a spreadsheet.
