Welcome to this weeks Get COACHd on Friday.
It has been a bit of an eventful week, and I hope that you have all come through it unscathed. We hear about increased COVID infection rates, coupled with the mini heatwave that hit us on Monday and Tuesday. We witness the last prime ministers question time for Boris, and see the conservative party leadership contest unravel to 2 candidates. I am just waiting now for the Dance of the Nights to fired up and for one of them to be fired. ????
The most interesting thing has been seeing the England Lionesses (Football) progress through to the Euro 22 semi final. It was not just about seeing the way that they came back from 1-0 against Spain, but about the way that they celebrated at the end of the game. This reminded me that sometimes, we need to have fun on the journey and that sometimes that journey will lend itself to some natural breaks. Even more so if you inject them into your goal timeline! Oh, and I also had a wry smile on my face as the crowd started singing “Its coming home”. You know what? I am just waiting for the English Women’s Football team to win the trophy!
Over the past two weeks, I have been working with some amazing coaches as part of the supervision programme. The groups have built great friendships, curiosity and a place for challenge. There will be more groups starting up in Q4 so get in touch if interested.
Next Thursday (28th July), Kevin Watson and I are running a free webinar about branding, but from a coaching perspective. We are considering the importance of understanding our purpose, voice and style as we place ourselves in the busy coaching market. (More details here).
Finally, to todays reads. Some lovely articles. ????
