I asked Paul to coach me in his role as a Corporate Coach to help me identify key issues as my organisation moved towards the process of major restructure. I work for my organisation as a Director on the senior management team. The sessions helped me to identify issues that I was in complete control of, those that I could only influence and those in fact I had no control of whatsoever and from this base draw up a relevent and robust action plan. The coaching also put me back in touch with my own values and beliefs and how they integrated with those of the organisation.
I found it very useful to apply some of the Management and Planning Models that Paul has as part of his Coaching repertoire and will be able to se these techniques time and time again throughout my career.
I have had coaching sessions with Paul Hanson for approximately 8 months. We have discussed my personal as well as professional goals during this time.
The sessions that I have had with Paul have been extremely beneficial. I have been very well supported and have been encouraged to set goals in every session. Paul has an incisive mind and straightforward approach, which I have found both refreshing and encouraging.
At times when I really thought that I was not going in the right direction, a consultation with Paul has put me back on track and more importantly in a very positive frame of mind. His encouragement and belief in me has been fantastic and has given self-confidence in areas that I was lacking.
Paul is a very good coach and I would not have achieved so much had it not been for him.
