Kick start 2018 with a free coaching session

Free coaching session giveaway

One of my business goals for 2018 is to support more people, businesses and organisations to achieve their goals through listening, business coaching and training. We’re offering one person the chance to have two hours free coaching session with Tracey-Jane Hughes this January in our kick start giveaway.

We know that many people don’t fully understand the benefits of coaching, and often see the expense of paying for a coach, unnecessary, especially in a cash strapped small business. So, we’re offering one person the chance of spending 2 hours (in one or two sessions, whichever is best for the winner), with experienced listener, coach and business owner, Tracey-Jane Hughes in January to get their year kick started in a free coaching session.

 

“You are one of the most skilled coaches and listeners with brilliant commercial knowledge I have met.

Brave business owners who are ready to do something different and mind set changing in 2018 get in touch with Tracey-Jane Hughes”

Benefits of having a coach

Some of the well known benefits of having a coach are:

  • Establish and take action towards achieving goals
  • Become more self-reliant
  • Gain more job and life satisfaction
  • Contribute more effectively to the team and the organization
  • Take greater responsibility and accountability for actions and commitments
  • Work more easily and productively with others (boss, direct reports, peers)
  • Communicate more effectively

Institute of Coaching

Personally, we’ve benefited from having someone to talk to who isn’t a close family member or friend about ideas, or frustrations, and working things out with someone outside the situation. This has been extended in more recent years with our knowledge of listening and how beneficial it is to have someone really listen to you well.

Tracey-Jane’s husband was offered a coach through work as part of a work re-organisation package, and whilst he was sceptical to start with, he found that by having a coach helped him stay focused, and achieve more during the time he was working with them. He’s also found that his understanding of himself increased which has stayed with him after this period of time.

Self awareness is one of the major areas a coach can help you with. They ask questions you often don’t want to ask yourself, and that’s exactly what they’re there to do. Help you ask yourself difficult questions so you can look at an issue from all angles. Once you’ve looked at the issue, you can then work out different ways of dealing with the problem, and your coach will help you ensure the actions you talk about taking are clear, specific and manageable in the time you have available.

If you suffer from having ‘mind monkeys’ sitting on your shoulder talking in your ear, a coach can offer a different way of listening and quietening them down, so that you work out for yourself what you want to do.

Coaching can help with many areas of life and business, and some people we know have different coaches who support different aspects of their life – health, sport, career, business development.

What a business coach isn’t

A business coach isn’t:

  • someone who will do the work for you
  • someone who will talk to that annoying person in your office on your behalf
  • someone who will tell you what to do
  • someone who will tell you off if you don’t do something you said you would

A business coach is

A business coach is:

  • a person you feel comfortable talking to about anything that’s on your mind
  • a person you respect and feel is able to help you get to where you want to be
  • easy to talk to. Who listens and asks questions which make you think for yourself
  • keeps you on track when you want to stray and talk about something else – because you set goals at the start of the coaching relationship which you want to achieve
  • a key supporter and cheerleader of everything you do, who doesn’t judge what you do, don’t do, or how you do it

If you’ve had a coach in the past and it didn’t work out for you, maybe they were the wrong person for you?

If you’re wanting to do things differently in 2018, but not sure how you’re going to keep on track, maybe a business coach will be the right person to work with you and help you achieve?

If you’re business is going really well, but you need a bit of personal coaching to get your life back in balance, or your health back on track, then a coach can help you with this goal.

Are you ready for massive action your business?

No, I mean REALLY ready? I can’t sleep, and it’s all because I’M really ready to take massive action and work with 6 business owners who are ready too. You don’t even need to know why you’re ready, or what you’re ready for, you just need to feel that you are. That’s all you need to be part of this.

I can’t believe how excited I am!

I’ve been talking to existing clients about how they take action, and I’ve set up an online Business Action Group. This is for business owners, anywhere, who are fed up with listening to and learning from others. You’ve got all the tools in your toolkit now, and are ready to take those actions you’ve written in your book, or on your to do list for the past few months.

Actions speak louder than words

take massive action and your business will growWe all know that actions speak louder than words. It’s something that we’re brought up being told, and sometimes we just get on and do it, other times, well, we just sit back and let the world keep turning whilst we take a rest.

And that’s exactly why I can’t sleep. I’m not ready to rest! Everything about me is ready to take action, and I know that you are too. You can’t wait either! You’ve never been more ready. You’re just not too sure what you’re ready for!

That’s OK. That’s what we’re going to work out and take action on together.

I’ve spent a long time, over my years as a business owner, thinking, planning and mulling things over. I’ve spent lots of time talking to others about my ideas. No really, I have. Lots of time bouncing things around with friends, family, and business friends. I’ve shared ideas at networking groups and people have said, “that’s fantastic! When are you doing that?”. And yep, you’ve guessed it. Those ideas have fallen by the wayside. Why? Because I didn’t take the action. I didn’t do that final step. I didn’t do those things I’ve always encouraged others to do.

So, I know exactly where you are right now. You just need someone to be right by your side and be that person whispering in your ear, “I’m going to do this right now”. There’s no need to not do those things you’ve been thinking about, or planning. Finally, they’ve got to the top of your list. Yay! I’m so excited for you 🙂

Take massive action now

And how are we going to do this together?

We’re going to work closely together for the next 6 months. It’s not just you and me, there’s a small group of us, all taking massive action in our businesses. We’ve got big ideas, and now we’re just going to get on and do it.

What are we going to do?

You’ll become part of the online Business Action Group. Weekly motivation with other business owners to take action, and the place for you to commit to your action and ask for help to achieve it. It’s not a failure to ask for support in your business. We’re not experts, or comfortable with all aspects of our business.

You’ll have access to Tracey-Jane via the VIP hotline if you’re having a little wobble and just need that bit of encouragement, and no-one’s around in the online group to give you that.

December – Find your Why, or, if you’re very clear about your Why, we’ll have that time getting really really clear about your hows and whats. We’ll be spending half a day together.

January – Finding and getting clear on your hows and whats (or, if we’ve done this, writing a strategy for one of your whats). Another half day session together will get us through this.

February – We’ll be meeting as a group and using each other’s skills and knowledge in an Action Learning Set. This will be in Preston, and we’ll be together for 6 hours.

March – One to one coaching, focusing on whatever you need to take action on your next step

April – Another Action Learning Set as a group – I know you’ll love these as much as I do. They’re fantastic at really getting you committed to taking action.

May – our final coaching session, getting you ready to keep taking action after we’ve finished the programme.

We’re going to have fun together over the next 6 months, and you’re going to love taking action every week. Some weeks that action will be “rest and have a holiday”, so don’t worry that it’s all going to be work, work, work!

How much is taking action going to cost?

OK, well, here’s the immediate action part. The part where you need to commit to investing in yourself to take action. This whole 6 month programme will cost £1800 in 2018. T-J charges £600 a day for training, so even with that you can see it’s a bargain.

But as I’ve woken up in the middle of the night so excited, and my husband can’t talk me out of it, I’m going to offer this to you, (and only you), for £997. Sound bonkers? Well, if we’re going to work together, you need to know that upfront.

Yep, for £997, we’re going to work together for 6 months. You’ll have 9 hours one to one coaching, and 12 hours group coaching through action learning, PLUS the action group AND direct access to Tracey-Jane for support.

READY? I am! 🙂

So, as there’s only a few places, get in touch RIGHT NOW & let’s chat and see if we’re a good fit to work together.
