The sessions helped me to understand the motivation of others and the importance of engaging staff as much as possible to align their personal objectives with those of the business.
As well as people management, David has helped me to improve my time management skills by identifying areas which needed to be improved and those which could have the resources reduced.
The sessions were always well thought out with aims established at the beginning and points to take away or consider at the end of the session.

The coaching sessions with David allowed me time and space to reflect on challenges and goals I wanted to achieve. David is very skilled at facilitating me to think more clearly about what I want to achieve and how I may reach my goal. Talking through potential obstacles, options, actions and ways forward with David made me feel more positive. After a session I felt motivated and energised to make changes and more confident that I would reach my goal.

Having David as my coach has really helped me to become more focused and disciplined in setting goals and objectives toward achieving my goals and aspirations.

David is an empathetic coach; he is very skilled at ‘being’ rather than ‘doing’ in that he didn’t direct me or tell me what to do, rather he offered a safe, supporting and encouraging space to work things out for myself. I found our sessions invaluable.

Coaching has given me protected time to think. David cleverly directed my thoughts especially when I went off on a tangent. He kept me focused and helped me prioritise. He would encourage me to deal with my own questions and didn’t let up until I did. I always left the sessions with a plan and a time-line for completion. I have found these sessions invaluable.

David helped me draw up the specific, time-measured plans which importantly contained how many applications I would be completing and how I would complete them. I set the bar high for myself and while often I didn’t meet the high standards I’d set, the crucial, exciting thing was that I was applying for multiple times the amount of jobs I had before applied for before the coaching ………… it has resulted in interest from employers and a job offer this week. Had I not had the inspiring coaching then I don’t like to think where I’d be, as at times my job hunting was nil.

I found the coaching process both supportive and motivating. It helped me to really think about my life and what I wanted to achieve. The coaching sessions helped me to recognise and draw on my strengths which has raised my self esteem and I have become more confident within a team.
