My blog 


​I have the pleasure of being a contributing author in the “Team Coaching Handbook” (editors: Prof David Clutterbuck, Colm Murphy, Tammy Turner, MCC) (in press). My chapter outlines the good, bad and unexpected experiences of working with a team at St John, New Zealand on their development journey over a 12-month period. I was an internal coach at the time, reporting to the team leader, which makes the story even more intriguing.

Who better to tell you about that journey (and summarise key points in the book chapter) than the client himself! Gary Connolly (Deputy Chief Executive Finance and Insights St John, New Zealand) talks about his own and the team's development journey in a series of 10 short videos over the next 10 weeks. (For a sneak peek at all 10 videos visit my website Thanks Rebekah Fraser, ACC (ICF) for helping out too.

If you like to find out more about how you and your team can grow to be the best you can be, please get in touch.

Only a few days until Christmas and I am feeling very reflective. For many of us (including me) 2020 has been one of the most challenging years in our lives. Be grateful for who you are, where you are, what you have, and what you have learnt about yourself during 2020. Now prioritise spending precious time with family and friends. Take care and see you next in 2021.

Animals are great teachers. They teach us about unconditional love, they teach us about living in the moment, they teach us about caring for others, and they teach us that the simple things in life matter the most. I met this puppy a few days ago…. I fell in love! Seeing life through the eyes of a puppy for an hour or so put my whole life back into perspective. If you would like to learn more about how to integrate simple mindfulness practices into your life, please get in touch.
