Spring into Action

The idea of a ‘Spring clean’ can be applied to our work lives just as easily as our wardrobes.

Spring is a time when nature is coming back to life, after Winter. It’s often the same for the psyche – just seeing the daffodils and tulips in bloom makes everything more pleasant; but the idea of a ‘Spring clean’ can be applied to our work lives just as easily as our wardrobes.

Whether it’s the drama or the drudge that’s getting us down, we sometimes need some help to keep things fresh. I know I do!

Here are some tips to help you Spring into action:

Spring into action:
1) What’s become drab and dull for me at work or home?

2) What are my new beginnings?

3) How could I bring some fresh perspective to my everyday routines?

4) Where can I add colour or vitality?

5) What specific action can I take to put a spring in my step?

Since starting my business I have met with my own coach on a regular basis. I meet with her to talk through challenges and frustrations and to re-focus on my goals and dreams. I always come away stimulated, with a fresh perspective on my situation and what I want to do.

Mary Foster has worked with us in a consultancy capacity working in both delivery of training courses and personal 1-2-1 coaching for senior managers.She worked really well with managers to ascertain the requirements for courses, as well as understanding the groups that she would be working with. Managers have repeatedly requested for Mary to facilitate team building events which demonstrates her excellent facilitation skills.

Coaching Eamonn

Mary’s style during the coaching sessions, gently provoking me towards solutions and paths, has been excellent. She allowed me to have control over the personal business and performance targets I could challenge myself with and in deciding what progression has been made between sessions. I have no doubt of the usefulness of the project and of Mary’s help to me through the past few months.

I liked the fact that Mary understands our business and the daily pressures we face. Mary had a knack of turning a problem into an opportunity and how to deal with sensitive issues, or at least steer me in the right direction.
