I am so glad I had a one hour coaching session with Simon. Rather than hiding from my weaknesses I've learnt how to use them with my strengths. Before seeing Simon I wouldn't have given that a thought. Thank you Simon. I am now doing things more calmly and also things I wouldn't have done before.
I was really pleased with the Strengths profiling process and coaching session with Simon. This was extremely worthwhile and Simon's natural, committed and passionate assistance through the coaching session was helpful to me immediately. I am still applying what I learnt several months on and have the recording/video to return to refresh my memory. This has been a great investment and given me the confidence and insight to pursue opportunities I may have shied away from in the past... Highly recommended. Coaching is a great investment and Simon is a great coach!
"Facing a major life change can be intimidating. Facing it alone can be downright scary!"
I contacted Simon Kolderie's coaching service when I decided to start my own business. Sure, I still had my family around me for support, but for ten hours a day, five days a week, I was alone as I tried to build my business. And that means promoting my services, doing quotes, keeping accounts, managing finances, chasing up payments, as well as actually doing the work.
But all of that day-to-day stuff tends to blind you from the big issues - like what kind of business did I want to run? How did I want to run it? Where did I want to do it?
Through Simon's coaching, I was able to get regular support and guidance. I was able to tackle the day-to-day issues, as well as think critically about what kind of business I wanted to build.
"Simon helped free me from some limiting concepts I had about my business: about how I should run a business and how I should behave as a business owner."
Simon didn't tell me the answers I was seeking. I told me the answers. But Simon led me to them.
Simon's regular coaching calls gave me the time and space to work on my business. It helped me shift from my mindset from being an employee to being an entrepreneur.
I'm not suddenly a great business leader. But I have a business that is a clear expression of me: my values, my abilities, and my goals. That's why I started my business - to be more me and less somebody else.
"I felt empty after years of towing the company line. But now I feel genuine, motivated and fresh."
Simon's coaching helped me get to where I am today. It has been a rewarding process, and I will continue to use Simon's guidance as I build my business. I highly recommend others to do the same.
