"My salary has increased by over £10,000 & I know that is down to your coaching & encouragement."
"I greatly appreciate the way you understood my strengths and weaknesses and guided me to harness my potential and improve on my shortcomings."
"I think it has certainly provided me with more focus - and greater concentration on what is important. At times I may be more frustrated because "getting on" is more important. I feel I have achieved more - I now need to keep this up and prove to myself I can do it."
"I now look at the more simplified headings for life goals by the time I am 70 at the beginning of each week and decide action."
"It is a very good idea to speak with someone who is outside your circle of friends and work area, someone objective who can help you with self doubt questions you have about relationships, focusing on your own business, or to be effective in your work (i.e. working for someone else). Coaching is not prejudged and is a good platform to talk ideas through or dare I say it answer your own questions with confidence."
"The coaching sessions have afforded me the opportunity to take a reality check in the way in which I perceive myself. Prior to these sessions I had a very negative view of myself; I was struggling with the transition from being a soldier for 32 years to being a civilian with no credible business acumen. These sessions confirmed that I was a credible Learning and Development Manager that had numerous years of experience; experience as an L&D manager, as a project manager and as an operations manager. Between sessions driven by action learning points by way of GOALS I focused on providing solutions to my areas of concern, thus validating my worth. "
"Garry has also given me life coaching to aid me through tough decisions in my personal life. I feel that Garry has given me the tools to set and achieve goals in life. The results are that I have grown in confidence, I have finally realized some of my dreams and am more 'at peace' with my professional and personal life."
"I found you’re coaching very beneficial; it inspired me to improve my time management, focus on the end product and make achievable changes to reach milestones, in order to get there."
"I have benefited from being able to speak openly and candidly with an external individual knowing that there are no preconceptions of myself or the organisation/people I work for. It was valuable to be able to feel immediate trust with the coach and feel safe that there was no hidden agenda to the sessions and my views would be welcomed without judgement.
As a result of the coaching I received I have been able to appreciate myself more and get 'back on track' with my life purpose with some clarity and revitalised enthusiasm."
"If you have an issue that is interfering with your business or personal progress and would like some help achieving direction, clarity and a strategy, Garry is highly recommended to fulfil the role of Coach in helping you set and achieve those objectives."
"Garry maintains a calm and focused approach to his work. He quietly challenges but the results speak for themselves. I would work with Garry again."
""Garry has a very calm approach. He's makes you think and find the answers for yourself. A soft kick up the bum."
"I found Garry very personable. He took the time to understand my concerns and through the process of Coaching ensured that I took ownership of my own destiny. I always felt comfortable in Garry's presence, safe in the knowledge that what we spoke about was confidential. I relished in the opportunity to fufil my goals, to realise my potential and to prove to myself that with some tailored advice, coupled with a desire to succeed (Garry nurtured me into realising my true potential) I could achive my goals in a timely manner. "
"Thanks to Garry my life is 'on-track'. I have achieved what I set out to achieve; for that Garry I am eternally grateful."
"Garry gave me the confidence in a non threatening way to 'up my game' and put in processes to improve my business, many thanks Garry."
"Garry is brilliant at what he does. He has acted as a coach and as a coaching supervisor for Challenge Manager Ltd. We often work with very senior people and Garry is structured, respectful, challenging and gets extremely good results. He plans carefully, uses his experience and is mindful of how people feel when they discuss difficult matters. We are pleased to have him working as part of the Challenge Team! "
"Sorry, have been very busy. I'm ok at the moment, perhaps you did too good a job! Will contact you if the wheels fall off! "
