I recently gave a keynote talk to the East of England Local Government Association in Cambridge. I enjoy giving talks and connecting a great crowd, and this was no exception. The talk was a slightly new one in that it focussed on how we can think about quantum physics in relation to coaching. But this blog is not about physics so no worries! But what again jumped out at me is just how important, indeed live affirming and giving the whole topic of Meaning is for people.

Christmas and New Year′s coming and frankly I am feeling a familiar, strange ambivalence towards it. I am both happy at the thought and idea of the break and all that goes with it and at the same time, a part of me isn′t. Read More

I am finding someone I’m coaching energy′s exhausting. I know I should be able to remain centred but I have one client I just don’t enjoy coaching. Should I pass them onto someone else?

I am struggling to find a direction for my coaching. I guess you could say I can’t find my coaching niche.

16 November 2018    Anthony Eldridge-Rogers

This is an important one. Are you too interested in too many things? That’s often my issue! Or are you unclear on what your specific purpose and mission is in your life? That’s often the root cause of the lack of a clear niche. Read More

Most coaches believe that good coach training is important. There′s no doubt that it is. It will help you get essential coaching skills that are crucial to effectively coaching a client.

18 September 2018    Anthony Eldridge-Rogers

I′m not sure if my coaching is actually working. My client seems to like coming to me but I am not sure what we are really doing.
