Transitioning into a bigger role

“Coaching was suggested by my Chief Executive to help me following a promotion. I was making the transition from ‘expert manager’ managing a specialist team to ‘general manager’ leading five separate teams.

It is fair to say that I was a little sceptical about coaching, whether I needed it and how credible it was. I have a reasonable degree of self awareness and wasn’t sure I needed to spend a couple of hours every other week going on about problems when I could have been getting on with the job. John was very good at explaining clearly what coaching is and is not. He picked up well on my concerns and tailored our sessions, clearly explaining the the tools that we were using and providing me with additional resources so that I could reflect on the theory behind our discussions.
Once we got going, John was fantastic at getting me to recognise self limiting beliefs that impact on my confidence and weaken my resolution to act. He has helped me to articulate my personal goals and values and then to align these to the ways in which I move forward in my new role. I feel empowered by this process, able to act more decisively – and to manage relationships in a more constructive way.
Where before I felt overwhelmed by the scope of my new role and could have struggled to make an impact I now have more confidence in my own ability to deliver and try to stick to my ‘authentic style’.

I greatly appreciate John’s sense of humour; there have been a lot of laughs in our sessions and some running jokes that keep us ticking along.
In summary, John’s coaching has helped me to accelerate the transition into my new role and the results of our sessions have far outweighed my expectations.”
CH, Executive Director of Shared Services, Professional Services organisation

Finding clarity following a company restructure

"John is an empathetic, insightful and supportive coach. He helped me find clarity when I had difficult choices to make regarding my future career and direction. His coaching sessions are well structured, without being constraining, and always left me feeling more resourceful and positive.  John is definitely challenging and works you hard but his coaching certainly worked for me. He takes what he does very seriously but not himself and is a pleasure to work with.
I strongly recommend John to anyone thinking about coaching and how it can help.”

JR, Business Unit Director, Media Company

Accelerating career

"John is a great coach. He provided me with self-confidence and inspired me to develop and advance my own career. He has a genuine talent of helping you look at issues and business challenges differently and to explore all available options. His style is engaging, pragmatic and professional.  John is someone I admire and respect."

SB, Senior HR professional, Music Company

Changing career direction

“Working with John has been really inspiring: although I knew I wanted a change of direction and had lots of ideas, none of these had any real shape. John guided me through a series of self-analysis exercises, challenged my thinking and was a constant source of encouragement and support. I now have a clear career-plan, my self-confidence is sky-high and I’m re-energised to achieving my goals.

Having been unimpressed by the coaching I’d received previously from one of the large career consultancies, I was sceptical about how much value a career coach could add. John has changed this perception and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to others similarly intent on changing direction.”

Starting a small business

"Although I was excited about starting my business, I felt lost and didn't know where to start.  John helped me to break down the task ahead into manageable chunks and together we formed an effective plan of action.  With John's motivation and guidance, I gained my first customer very quickly and with each goal achieved, my confidence grew faster than I expected.  John's encouragement played a big role in this.  I would definitely recommend John’s services to anyone embarking on a new challenge."

SM, Small Business Owner

Realising aspirations

“John is a truly supportive, extremely committed professional, and an exceptional Life Coach. He helped address my concerns, crystalise my ambition, made me stretch my limits, to go above and beyond to be a success. He is truly committed in helping me succeed. I have never felt so supported by an individual before. My dream has come true. I am now a Motivational Speaker, thanks to John!”

Delivering HR solutions

“We use Peoplescape’s HR services on a regular basis to provide us with support on a range of strategic and operational people issues. What I value most is John’s ability to bring practical advice and solutions – a quality you don’t always find with other consultants. He grasps our needs very quickly and never ‘signs off’ on a piece of work until our expectations have been met (and frequently exceeded). His professionalism, energy and depth of HR expertise are impressive. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending John to other organisations seeking hands-on support."
