COACHd – your weekly coaching update | July 1, 2022

Friday, July 1, 2022

Hi Simon,

Welcome to this weeks Get COACHd on Friday.

I would like to thank those of you that have responded to the call out for thoughts on how Co Coaching can be developed. I was amazed by the feeling and the comments that you have provided and did not realise the deep impact that CoCoaching has helped people with over the years. Wow! So, perhaps it is time to liberate and build confidence in your coaching practice by coming along to the next session on 7th July – see here for more details.

I also would like to shout out a new book that was launched yesterday, here in the West Midlands. Two friends of mine, Ian Harrison and Myles Downey have written what I think will become a seminal book in team manager performance. Entitled “The Enabling Manager”, it promises to offer methods to ‘open doors’ for your progression, development, and a more fulfilling life – more over here.

I am also receiving fantastic feedback about how COACHd is being received – please feel free to pass on the link to other coaches, mentors and HR professionals to sign up.
