The Power of the Pause
Our amazing member Mandy Sinclair will host the July seminar.
A certified active coach, DISC practitioner, ICF member and Marshall Goldsmith Leadership assessment professional Mandy has transformed not only her life but those of many solopreneurs, Managers and Business owners.
Mandy believes that Coaching is about designing a different future that fits with your values and goals.
Recognising that many Business owners are great at planning their Business goals, Mandy has also seen the value of helping clients pause and take stock - this session will explore the benefits of pausing.
This session will help you understand all the benefits of taking regular breaks and how mindfulness can boost productivity and effectiveness.
There will also be a chance to practise a reflection exercise that allows you build confidence, maximise learning and maintain resilience in our increasingly busy lives.

But then you get disappointed when things do not turn out the way you expected and worse still, you get more of the same. It does not have to be this way. Ask yourself a better set of questions and discover your inner genius. With a greater understanding of how your mind works, what you really want
and why you want it, you open up a world of untapped potential and possibility, your unique gifts, your inner genius. You are then able to take action and achieve success without fear of failure.
