I can't quite believe how much my career outlook has changed. I have more clarity now and feel positive about the level of unknown and uncertainty going forward, reframing this as an opportunity rather than a concern or risk to be managed.
Coaching with Ali is an investment in yourself and you are absolutely worth the time.
I found walking outside, side by side and not confined to four walls or a computer screen emotionally freeing. It was much easier to be brutally honest and often I hadn't realised what I was going to say until I was on the walk. Being in the open countryside, in all weathers, is very grounding.
Ali's style enabled me to be honest with him and myself, in a short amount of time.
I've had professional coaching before and have always found the meeting room format quite clinical and overly formal - I always felt on 'work mode' and gave answers that were expected rather than what I actually felt or believe. Ali's walking coaching was a refreshing and welcome change, which I appreciate even more after 2 years working from home. We know the mental and physical benefits of being outside and in nature, and aligning this with life coaching is truly transformative.
Coaching with Ali is like therapy...except you leave feeling better about yourself and empowered to make positive changes. I felt motivated after each session and found that I would be thinking about our walk for days afterwards.
I can't quite believe how much my career outlook has changed. I have more clarity now and feel positive about the level of unknown and uncertainty going forward, reframing this as an opportunity rather than a concern or risk to be managed. A key change in my outlook has been revisiting and confirming my values, which have changed over the past 10 years. Knowing what I have is what I want has given me a huge mental boost - a reassuring reminder that my career goals don't need to be set overnight and that I'm privileged to be in a position to wait for an opportunity to arise. Going forward, I already know that I will benefit from regular coaching sessions. I think coaching is a safe place to explore career ideas, smash assumptions and build up confidence in taking the next step, whatever that might look like. I also believe coaching gives me the time to self-reflect as an individual and a Leader in the workplace, and this can only benefit how I support and empower my team.
Coaching with Ali is an investment in yourself and you are absolutely worth the time. Ali brings real life experience to the walk and nothing you can say will faze him; there is zero judgement.
