Conversation is so much more than social chitchat. It is a fundamentally unique part of being human and of being in relationships with each other. In conversation we meet ourselves at new edges of insight and understanding and when we discover what lies beyond those edges, everything shifts.”

You are not your Job Title

You are not your Job Title

It's a common question on first meeting someone: What do you do? More often than not the answer you get is someone's job title. Yet that doesn't really tell me what you do, create, experience or bring to the world. The same job title in different companies can mean different things. Or the assumption I make about your job title might be based on...

When you get things wrong!

"You're right, Aileen". I like to joke a little whenever anyone says that to me in conversation. After all, it's usually just a throw away comment. A verbal tic. It's not meant as a deeply considered judgement of what I've said or what I think or even who I am. So my light-hearted response is "I'm always right." Of course, I know I'm not. Yet...

It’s not really about time.

It’s not really about time.

One of the most common comments I hear in coaching conversations is "I don't have time" or "when I get time". We've all said it at some point. It's a habit.

Our conversation is quality time you likely don’t get anywhere else. It’s for you to reflect, re-energise and refocus. It’s for you to challenge yourself and shift what’s not working for you. To move forward and create life on your terms. It’s a conversation where you uncover your next steps — small starts or exciting leaps — towards the future you truly want. You get unstuck. You find freedom. It starts with questions and listening. It turns to action. You live and lead inspired.
With more than two decades coaching leaders, teams and individuals, around the globe, I see that the power of pure coaching lies in the human essence of the conversation. There’s a magic to what emerges in a quality conversation one person at a time. Modern times call it coaching. Ancient times call it inner wisdom. The master coach calls it out in each of us, inviting awareness, insight, learning, growth and the personal power to take action, sometimes beyond your wildest dreams.
