Testimonial – Career Coaching

Time To Reflect On Our Work & Life Values

As we end 2020, now is a great time to think about our careers, since March 2020 (first lockdown) I’d say most of my coaching clients have been reflective; wondering which of their work/life values are really important and which were not so important, specifically reflecting on their priorities regarding family, career, purpose and health as a result of COVID-19 and perhaps a career change was needed. Below is a recent testimonial from a client that started as face-to-face before lockdown then transferred to Zoom for our virtual coaching sessions.

“I wanted to share some positive feedback about Johnathan and the service he provides with career coaching.

I really enjoyed my time with Johnathan as my career coach, he has lots of knowledge and experience, which is incredibly valuable and I have found very useful. The skills and techniques he uses are outside of the box and he encourages you to think differently or alternate your perspective. I think this is a really positive experience to bring to someone who may struggle with this from time to time. He made me realise my needs and wants in my work life and the best values and aspects about myself. He has boosted my confidence and given me lots of tools to use now and in the future and it is a very valuable experience which should be shared more widely.” ~ GD

So wherever you are in your search for a deeply satisfying and fulfilling career, the three keywords that I’ll bring to you are: Clarity, Purpose and Direction.

MERRY CHRISTMAS 2020

2020 has been a rotten and challenging year on many levels, and seems to mark great changes to come over the next few years.

On reflection: Remember, during Autumn the leaves drop and rot but provides nutrient for the new Spring shoots. In time, out of the darkness grows Beauty from sun Light.

TS Eliot wrote: “I said to my soul, be still and wait without hope, for hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love, for love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith, but the faith and the love are all in the waiting. Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought: So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.”

Thank you to all my coaching clients for working and trusting in me to help you transform your careers that express who you are really!

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR

NHS Clap for Carers Night – Every Thursday 8pm

Male Nurse

Michael Rosen wrote the following poem for the NHS 60th Anniversary. He is currently in hospital with Coronavirus but is now stable. This poem is for all nurses around the world who are fighting Covid-19, who come to work and face the dangers when human instinct is to run from it, wonderful courageous and caring individuals.

Please show your appreciation by clapping, blowing horns, banging pots with wooden spoons outside your front doors or open windows, at 8pm on Thursday nights!

These are the hands

These are the hands
That touch us first
Feel your head
Find the pulse
And make your bed.

That tap your back
Test the skin
Hold your arm
Wheel the bin
Change the bulb
Fix the drip
Pour the jug
Replace your hip.

These are the hands
That fill the bath
Mop the floor
Flick the switch
Soothe the sore
Burn the swabs
Give us a jab
Throw out sharps
Design the lab.

And these are the hands
That stop the leaks
Empty the pan
Wipe the pipes
Carry the can
Clamp the veins
Make the cast
Log the dose
And touch us last.

Stay well…stay healthy…and stay at home to protect our NHS staff!

Testimonial – Greater Awareness of Myself

Man Thinking Sunset

“I signed up for career coaching to gain a greater awareness of the roles that suited my skills and knowledge… but it actually gave me a whole lot more.

I found Johnathan easy to talk to and with the varied activities in the sessions trigger thought provoking conversations that enabled me to identify what I really value in myself and how I can use them and allow me to develop in my current and prospective roles.

It gave me clarity and showed me what is important to me and what makes me tick as an employee, what gives me personal satisfaction and why. With careful questioning and probing Johnathan helped me discover these. The approach that Johnathan comes with gives a fresh approach. At times it was challenging but enjoyable!”

I would recommend giving it a go to anyone.” – RB
