I think achieving my Master Trainer recognition is probably a milestone in my career as it opened the door to so many opportunities internationally.
Stepping onto the stage in front of 2000 people at the American University in Cairo in 2012 was phenomenal – and pretty nerve-wracking!
My very first coaching client and the joy of facilitating that person in making a major life shift.
‘Always there when something needs doing’
‘Listens to everything and never criticizes’
‘Can be pretty tough on me if I ask for help and then don’t help myself’
I’d say I have two. I love people and I love language; The artful use of language in creating change.
The power of having someone who listens without judging, asks the questions that need asking and holds us accountable for taking responsibility for our own future.
I think it literally saved my life. Having recovered from a stress-related heart issue, it was a professional coach that helped me totally turn my life around, leading to setting up my own training – and then coaching – business.
On another level, it has enabled me to travel internationally and enjoy an amazing 20+ years.
