Common topics brought to coaching
Navigating life and work can be tricky. Sometimes it’s plain sailing, and sometimes it’s bumpy and rough, and you’ve just got to hang on in there. Having clarity on your goals and priorities and knowing where you’re headed gives you a sense of control and focus for your efforts.
Most coaching sessions shine focus on a particular topic or aspect of a broader theme.
Here’s a sample of some themes I’ve worked with recently:
“I want to be on the board by X”
“I need to do another investment round but I’m struggling to do that and run my growing company”
“I’m not getting the recognition I think I deserve at work”
“I want to launch my own business, but I’m not sure where to start”
“I get easily distracted and struggle to stay focused on the big priorities”
“I don’t think I want a managerial role but I feel it’s the only next step option”
“I’m a first time manager and I don’t want to be a bad boss – I’m worried everyone will know that I don’t know what I am doing”
“My boss is a micro-manager & doesn’t give me space to do my work. It’s driving me nuts”
“I’ve been told to write my objectives and I don’t know where to start”
“I’m stuck in the day to day weeds at work and my boss keeps telling me I need to lead and see the bigger picture. I don’t even know what that means.”
“I’ve just got a big new role that I’ve worked hard to get but I’m still struggling with Imposter Syndrome”
“I’ve been furloughed and I’m really stressed about the risk of redundancy”
“I’ve got to give a big presentation and public speaking petrifies me even on Zoom”
“I’m burned out and fried, I’m working crazy hours and never seem to get on top of things“
“I sold my soul to the corporate devil for decades but now I’m feeling frozen about what I could do differently going forward”
“I have no idea what I’m going to do with my time when I retire, and I don’t want to just be my wife’s handy man”
“I don’t have time for me any more”
“I’m stuck in a rut and don’t know how to get out of it. I’ve run out of ideas.”
“I start loads of things but never finish them & it frustrates me cos I never feel like I’m getting anywhere”
“I’m just drifting along, and it’s OK, but I don’t really know where I am going anymore”
“I feel like I’m just ticking boxes of work, family, salary, holidays”
