    Our uniqueness is our gift to the world. No two people have the same qualities, vision and experience, and our life’s work emerges from our own melting pot

    The workplace should primarily be an incubator for the human spirit

    Anita Roddick

A few days ago I was given a beautiful pint glass present with the words "Forgiveness" "Love" and "Gratitude" printed on it.

It was given by a group in Enniscorthy that I had worked with a few years ago and they were and are a really lovely group, so their present was all the more meaningful for me.

Gifts received unexpectedly, whether as a physical present like I received or in any other form of kindness, are a real treasure. They do not need to cost a lot, and sometimes even nothing at all. But they transmit a message that is priceless.  

That message is as deep and meaningful as you, the receiver, choose to allow it to be. In my case, as with the beautiful glass, I have learned to really appreciate it. As it happens, a number of years ago I discovered the incredible value of drinking plenty of water every day, and I normally drink between 2 and 4 litres per day.

I also came across the work of Masaru Emoto and his work with water crystals and how music, sounds and words can impact so deeply on water. So I especially now love drinking water from a glass with Forgiveness, Love and Gratitute written on it. And I am deeply grateful to the group for this gift.

In business, one of the the most important actions that good managers do, and good colleagues do, is to give gifts. The most important gifts of all cost absolutely nothing - a simple recognition that a person has done something really well or has made a great effort to achieve something. Talk may be cheap, but given as a gift to someone in acknowledging and in gratitude for who they are or what they have done is simple priceless.

How we can help you

We bring you through an exciting and often challenging process. We get you to focus on your business and your personal life. We use a multi-layered approach that ensures balance and detailed attention to both your business success and your personal growth and fulfilment. Through this website and our newsletter we provide you with information and inspiration. We challenge you to treat your work or your business from the perspective of how it truly serves you best. Some of the challenges may seem overwhelming, unique, complicated or difficult to talk about. Some habits in your life or work may be so engrained that you may feel you can’t change them, that it is already too late.

We show you how coaching is extremely effective, sometimes vital, but always enjoyable. It transforms the way you approach and deal with challenges in your life, work or business. We show you that your life is very important, that you have a unique contribution to make and that you can enjoy the experience of living and working at your best.

We are very happy if you benefit in whatever manner from your contact with us through this website, through our free newsletter, through talks or workshops we give, through face-to face coaching or phone/Skype coaching or through some of our on-line publications which will be available later in 2012.

Dealing with Stress

Mark Pollock was an inspiration to listen to on the radio the other day. He became blind about 10 years ago, when he was in his early 20s, but has since then achieved amazing feats including being the first blind person to race 14 hours a day for over five weeks to reach the South Pole.

Meeting your needs in Business

In my experience of coaching people in business, the greatest challenge is always to balance work life with the other important aspects of life. “Making a decent living! What else would business be about?” That was Finbar’s reply when I asked him the question of why was he in the particular business he was in.
