Thanks for visiting!
I mentor/coach, advise & speak to help Sharpen YOUR Focus.
I link management, mindfulness and martial arts to provide new ideas that add value.
Focus is about Scorecard, Simplifying & Playing to Strengths and doing things differently.
Poor Focus causes waste and typical symptoms are overload, firefighting, sameness and missed opportunities.
Sharpening is about Practice & progression, Positivity & Path and doing things better.
Lack of Sharpening causes paralysis, negativity, exhaustion and reflects poor action, motivation & energy.
I mentor/coach on four topics:
*Strategic matters like long term plans, priorities & leadership style, branding & marketing;
* Tactical matters like business performance, managing conflict and teams, improving projects, management skills;
* Individual careers and choices and personal development;
* Creating & delivering awesome presentations.
It involves 121 working, face-to-face or via Skype, from once per month up to twice per week. This is supplemented with email and other messaging as needed.
I have developed an original approach – THRIVES, that draws on good practice and listen & learn, motivate & energise & share tips, tools & traps from hands-on experience.
I have mentored/coached 35 clients. They include young business founders, senior executives, teams and CEOs with 10-1800 staff, recruited staff. I have also been an interim HR Director and advised on performance.
I advise & assure projects and initiatives.
My aim to help de-risk them, manage conflict and ensure they succeed.
