How coaching changed my life

Before I started coaching, my professional life followed a pretty traditional route: I graduated from business school with a Masters in Management. I worked in recruitment for 12 years before setting up my own successful recruitment business.

But I felt disconnected, unfulfilled, as if something was missing. When a friend suggested coaching, I took part in a leadership development programme run by Newfield Network. And it changed everything.

I realised that I made all my decisions with my mind and neglected what my emotions and my body were trying to tell me. I realised that my assumptions were not “the way things were” as I had always supposed – they were just my interpretation of things. And I realised that all these new insights weren’t going to change anything unless I put them into practice, every day. So that’s what I did.

Now I can observe and adapt my own behaviours to produce more positive outcomes in my work and my personal life. I make more meaningful decisions. I’m a happier, more balanced person, fulfilled in my work and my life.

It’s not always easy. It requires discipline and commitment. But every day is better because I’m on this journey.
