    The workplace should primarily be an incubator for the human spirit

    Anita Roddick

A friend of mine who works for a well known Irish company gets an email from her boss every weekend. Nothing unusual about that in their company – so does every other member of staff.

Although the information in the email for my friend contains almost exactly the same business information and updates as for other staff in the same section of work, it is still feels personal to her.

It tells her and each staff member one very significant thing – that they are very important in the business. Staff are valued in that company; the company tells them so. It is they who sell the products, who meet the clients, who answer the calls; their voices are the voice of the company, their faces are the face of the company.

Many workers are allowed to work unaware of the huge skills they have and the value they add through the work they do well. Some business managers I have dealt with had assumed that staff knew that they were valued simply because they got paid for their work!

The greatest incentive for any worker is to know that they and the work they do is valued. Good managers look for ways to catch staff doing something very well. To manage valued and motivated staff in any business is very easy; to manage staff who don’t feel they or their work valued is almost impossible.

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.

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.
