"How do I take 100% OWNERSHIP of my career?"
When faced with a question such as this in a one to one coaching session I flip the question around and ask my client, ‘How are you not taking 100% ownership of your career?’ As with many situations you need to know where you are now and what patterns/behaviours you are running to be able to make the changes you want to make.
“How do I cope with the doubts I have that I'm just bluffing?”

I too had this assumption, until a colleague of mine highlighted some research stating that out of 100 global financiers, the lowest position held being Vice President, 94 of them put ‘increased self belief’ as their no.1 reason for wanting coaching!

How to Be a Balloon Gatherer
Have you ever given someone a gift only to be given one straight back?
Or been on the receiving side and not fully taken it, just returned it?
Strange concept handing something back when it has just been given to you and yet this is what many people do with compliments.

“The programme gave me further insights into the way I deal with life. It allowed me to gain clarity and create distinction that unlocked new possibilities. I enjoyed Jules’ respect for the individual process as well as going beyond techniques to remind us of what is truly important.
I believe every woman needs to learn and put into practice this knowledge, the insights and the techniques given here. It is great value for money as your life is priceless!”Angela Mendes, Coach
