Looking for the “Sliding Doors Moments” That Shape Leaders and Entrepreneurs.

19th February, 2024

Have you ever wondered what sparks the fire within exceptional leaders and entrepreneurs? What transformative moment, that seemingly insignificant “sliding doors” event, propelled them into a different state of “being” that set them on a path of impact and influence? This is the very question at the heart of Empresario Group’s new research project, aptly titled “The Being Moment – when new Leaders and Entrepreneurs find belief”. This new project has developed from extraordinary moments…

The first rule of coaching is that we must always talk about coaching

“The First Rule of Coaching is that we must always talk about Coaching.”

10th October, 2023

This thought came to me at the end of the first session with a client who had just taken on a new CEO role and was surprised to find himself suddenly struggling. He told me at the beginning of the session that he had only agreed to meet with me because I had been recommended by a mutual friend who was also a coaching client of mine. He was sitting with arms folded. He avoided…

Value of Coaching Part 1

The Value of Coaching: Part 1.

14th January, 2023

My reading and research ever since I stumbled into a imposed leadership and coaching program nearly 15 years ago, continues to reinforce the generalised hypothesis that many Australian organisations, appear to completely misunderstand how leaders and leadership strengths are developed and nurtured. I am constantly surprised in my dealings with all kinds of organisations how poorly prepared many new managers are to deal competently with the significant challenges of management and how leadership and management…

28th November, 2022

They are also not looking to set up in the IT Industry, or in any new industry…

So. What kind of Coach do I want to be?

18th November, 2022

This is my second post on my coaching journey and corresponds with my reading and my coaching practice development. This week I have been pondering the existential question “what is coaching?”. It is a question almost too obvious and too boring to consider out loud, however I have always started all of my significant projects with a couple of my favourite Stephen Covey’s principles “to begin with the end in mind” and “to first seek…

Is This Chair Taken? (A journey into developing a personal and professional coaching philosophy)

11th November, 2022

Well. So. It has finally started. I have committed onto a new career path that I have been looking at for what seems now a very long time. I have been trekking the well worn safe and wide life path now for many years, never veering off too far and always in sight of safety. Its not that the other options were particularly hazardous or daunting, it was more that there wasn’t a lot people…
