By working with us you’ll achieve more – in less time, and move through life with more confidence, clarity, self-belief and ease. There are a lot of buzz phrases associated with coaching and personal development that often confuse and alienate many rational people. Phrases such as “realise your potential,” “live your dreams” or “make a difference in the world” may be vague and meaningless to you. So, on this page we’ll share some of the common results our clients have experienced and give you a clear idea of what it’s really like to work with us.
The results you get from working with a Move Beyond coach will be specific to the areas you choose to work on and the objectives you set when you start. However there are certain results that are consistent throughout all our coaching programmes, these include:
Living and working by our own philosophy and values is the foundation to success. It reflects who we are and our aspiration to be the best that we can be. Some of the beliefs and principles that guide our approach to working with you include:
It’s got to be fun: Otherwise what’s the point? Whilst we appreciate that not everything in life can or will be a non-stop party, however, if in the grand scheme of things your life isn’t setting your soul alight, then truly what is the point? There’s a big difference between living and existing, and we’re all about the former and not the latter. Life’s just too short to go through the motions. So we’re committed to ensuring that your coaching programme is fun, and provides more than enough challenge to make sure the life you create for yourself is one that is truly fun and enjoyable.
You are capable of being and doing more than you think: We believe that everyone has un-tapped potential that goes way beyond what they can currently perceive. The possibilities that are open to each of us are limitless. We will look beneath your outer shell to discover what lies beneath and help you unleash your true potential. As you uncover the truth about yourself you will come to know that anything is possible and that you capable of far more than you ever thought possible.
Know yourself and what makes you tick: Only you can live your life – nobody else can live it for you. Many people, often with the best of intentions, will advise you as to what you should or shouldn’t do in life and what choices to make, but only you can truly know and choose what’s right for you – and you’re the one who has to live with your decisions. Knowing who you really are at your core, and what makes you tick, is the only true way to find the right path for you and to live life in a way that lights you up inside.
You only have one body and it’s got to last you a lifetime: How you feel in your body and how well your body functions has a huge impact on your life experience. After all, whether you like it or not, it is the vehicle in which you drive through life. If you don’t have your health and vitality then what do you have? Take care of your body the way you would take care of the most precious possession that you’ll ever own. Keep it well maintained and run it on good quality fuel.
It isn’t just about the right job/business; it’s about your life’s work: Jobs and businesses are temporary things, often enticing on paper, yet no matter how good a job or business might seem – things will ultimately change, your boss will change, your team will change or your organisation will change, your customers will change or the economic climate will change. Your life’s work on the other hand, is about your work being an extension of who you are. It’s about discovering activities that you have natural talent for, which energise you and stimulate you and do not change no matter what “job” or “business“ you happen to be in. Do what you love in both your life and work. The price of doing anything else is just too high!
Supportive relationships are key: Never underestimate the impact that the people around you have on your life. Having the right people in your life is fundamental to success. When it comes to making positive changes and moving forwards, the people in our lives can be split into three groups: those who fuel your success, those who are neutral, and those who hold you back. We surround ourselves with great people so that we can function at our best in order to have the lives we want, and so that we can be at our best for you. In turn we will help you to build a support network around you that will help you get to where you want to go.
“Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Continue to learn. Appreciate your friends. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is…“
Imagine a famous sports person whom you admire. Someone who has reached the top of their game, like David Beckham or Martina Navratilova. The things that they have achieved stretched them beyond whatever they dreamed or thought was possible in the history of human endeavour. Did they do it alone? No! They had a coach who was 100% focused on what they wanted to achieve, who demanded a lot from them, and who was committed to being there through all the ups and downs.
A sports coach is committed to helping you get to the top of your game and doesn’t give up – even when you do. Take Martina Navratilova for example, the role of her tennis coach would have been to work with her in all aspects of her game – technical, tactical, physical, psychological and emotional. This enabled her to go out on the court and succeed at the highest level. Her coach would keep her pointed towards where she wanted to go, rather than focus on the last game she lost or the injury that dragged her down. Once on court playing a game, her coach can’t do the work for her – it is down to her to go out and perform at her best; however her coach is still there championing her from the sidelines! Over the course of her career, her coach would have been there for her during both the joy and the pain, celebrating the triumphs and helping her overcome the challenges.
” There is an inner game at play, and this inner game holds the key to the game of our outer lives… “ (Timothy Gallwey)
Whatever your ‘game’, a Move Beyond coach can do the same for you. But what about my friends I hear you say? Aren’t they as supportive as a coach? Of course they are supportive, but friends are by nature often too nice – they will listen to your old story time and time again whilst you waste time, lose confidence, and remain chained to your past, not getting on with your life. A Move Beyond coach will also be compassionate, yet at the same time fierce about holding you to your dream. Sure, go out for a beer with your friends, but to really make significant changes in your life you need someone like a coach to hold you accountable for going after your goals and dreams.
You don’t have to be special to go for gold – you just have to be committed. To succeed in their dreams, athletes like David Beckham and Martina Navratilova had to let go of what other people around them thought they were and were not capable of, how they were expected to do it, and be willing to take a huge leap into the unknown – so they could achieve something remarkable. This isn’t a fairy tale. These people may not have started off thinking they were special. What sets them apart is that they dared to dream and then walked to the edge – and beyond. They had a dedicated team supporting them, who knew the difference between when they were selling themselves short and when they were genuinely exhausted. They were relentless in holding them to ‘going for gold’, instead of just maybe hoping for a bronze or finishing the race.
Here at Move Beyond our professional coaches will dare you to dream and then walk with you to the edge, the only difference is that you get to choose the game. Your coach will challenge you and take the time to find out what winning in life/business really means to you. They will help you to discover where you want to be and develop strategies to get there – whether, it’s about health, finance, relationships, career, work/life balance or business performance. Your coach will hold you to what you say that you want and make sure you really do live up to your potential. They will stick with you through the ups and downs and champion you from the sidelines as you go out and play your game!
