Leicester City
What a result! Yes, I know that everyone is talking about it and, yes, there is a bit of a bandwagon. However, it is a once in a lifetime story of sporting achievement and we humans do enjoy those occasions.

I'm looking forward to the analysis and dissection that will be coming, and perhaps even a film telling the story. If a film studio does take that on they will need to keep it close to reality, there are a lot of fans who will defend it!

So, a great result and something truly inspiring.

By the time anyone had a chance to really investigate the new season has started and they are not doing so well, although they seem to be holding their own in the Champions League. Is playing in Europe going to kill the magic by putting too much strain on the team?

Social Anxiety
Here's a very good piece on the BBC: 'A Self-Help Guide to Social Anxiety.

Coaching income
An organisation called The International Coach Federation reports that the average life coach charges $214 per session and makes $47,900 a year. At today's rates that equates to £146 and £32,680.

It also equates to 224 sessions a year. There are approximately 250 working days in a year, so if you take out a couple of weeks for holiday this equates to one session per day.

How do you feel about these stats?

Increase in virtual coaching
Very pleased to say that having done the numbers of last years work that I delivered 4x more coaching (value£) than in the previous year.
In part due to my return to coaching but more in the fact that clients were seeking out and asking for coaching.
My work included 1-1s with some senior directors and the biggest area of increase was in virtual coaching , particularly virtual coaching with small groups of staff / execs.
Virtual coaching is certainly more acceptable these days!

Virtual Coaching
I used to think virtual coaching was a poor cousin to face to face coaching. How wrong I was.
Last year some 60% of my coaching work was virtual.
Sure its different, and it requires a different mind set and more listening, better questions and clarification. But in our modern world or better tech and mobile workforce , virtual coaching is coming into its own.
Don't be afraid to use tech to coach.
I am very respectful of the value of virtual coaching.

G4S
Did anyone see the disgraceful BBC Documentary on G4S and their 'work' with young vulnerable people in custody?
I felt sick watching it.
The documentary showed staff bullying, threatening and abusing young people 14-18 years old in their care?
How could coaching help staff, to help and coach young people so they can return to their communities and have a chance to add value and be a positive influence...rather than returning to jail, being excluded or relying on the state?

Stanford Prison Experiment... I must look it up.

Thanks for that. Interesting to note how quickly staff became bullies, or tolerated others bullying...

Karen - The smartphone life coach app
A group of developers, backed by a Kickstarter campaign, have developed a smartphone app which they claim is part game, part drama and part self-help quiz. An article in The Guardian calls this a life coaching app and gives an example of one of the questions it asks as; 'Sex with a stranger is more exciting, right?'

It doesn't seem to have much to do with life coaching in the real world, not least given the extremely leading way that the question is asked.

An uncomfortable question
One of the big blind-spots of the coaching profession is that we can fall into the trap of placing the focus on the individual to improve their lives, and thus collude with, rather than advocating changes to, the systems or structures that foster inequality.

We should explore the uncomfortable question of whether we are part of the problem or part of the solution. And, just to be clear about this, there is no easy answer to that question - it isn't black and white - but ask it we must.

How many people undertake coaching wanting to actually change? I think that one of the reasons why lifecoaching has a bit of an iffy reputation is that many coaches just validate behaviour rather than have the skills required to help people to change.

Think Positive Thoughts
This is what people don’t understand: It normally takes 21 days to change a habit. So if I was thinking in a negative way for a long time, it would take at least 21 days to change my mindset to think positively. Read More »

Great coaching venues - Feynan Eco Lodge, Jordan
Feynan Eco Lodge in Jordan is a most incredible place to get away from it all and enjoy the space to think things through without interruption.

You are powerful
     In this article, I will talk about how you are more powerful than you ever thought possible.  Dr. Wayne Dyer wrote a book called, Change Your Thoughts Change Your Life. He knew, if you just changed your thoughts, you could have a great impact on your life.       We need to talk about thoughts. If you change your thoughts to being more positive, it will change your life.  If you have negative thoughts, you will get negative results.  Positive… Read More »
