Do You Realise How Awesome You Already Are?

Executive Coach Lindsey Hood 152.jpg

Congratulations - you are a success!

You have got your ideal job. You nailed the interview - you were confident, gave great examples of your experiences, competencies and skills - you were so excited for the opportunity and knew you would be awesome if you got the role. And the hiring manager believed this to!  

Fast forward a few weeks or months, and now the reality has settled in for you and you are doubting yourself. You are panicking about what you don’t know or understand at the moment. You feel like a fraud and all confidence is ebbing away. You are struggling to sleep, you are putting in more hours, but the to-do lists are not getting any smaller, you feel out of control and this feeling of anxiety is growing on a day-by-day basis.

You are a swan - perfectly calm looking, but under the water the legs are frantically trying to keep you going in the right direction!


You are not alone. You are not a fraud. You are genuinely awesome.  

Imagine waking up each morning with a sense of excitement about the potential of what the day holds, walking tall with a sense of purpose, being fully present in each moment, speaking up confidently and making decisions as the expert you are, commanding the respect you deserve.

I firmly believe that change is possible but you need to want it and be willing to work for it. It doesn’t need to be hard, but you do need a plan - a way to get from where you are now to where you want to be - and a way to be accountable for consistently making the small changes required to habits, mindset and behaviours to achieve your goals and develop new, more resourceful ways of being, thinking and doing. No-one chooses to stay somewhere they don’t want to be, but you sometimes feel stuck because you don’t have the space, time or strategies to take a different approach to a situation.

I can coach you, so you can develop a deeper level of self awareness. Working together, you will learn more about what natural abilities you have and how to harness these to gain even greater success in your career. I can hold you accountable. This is all about you, the real, authentic you, and by appreciating yourself, in all your uniqueness, you will develop a deep sense of who you are and an inner confidence around your awesomeness.


I believe in you and can help you re-believe in yourself

I’m a qualified life and executive coach, but I will never claim to be the expert in your life - that is totally you! I believe in you and your potential. My years of training, and the professional development I commit to continue to take in the future, mean I am the expert in coaching - asking the right questions to help you unlock the answers, to challenge your current thinking, to support new perspectives, and to give you space to explore new ideas and thoughts. I can guide you on your journey, but I will never take away from you that this is your journey. You are empowered to make the changes that you feel are necessary in your life - or to stay where you currently are - the choice is always yours.

Why would I choose you to be my coach?

I love working with successful, talented women. I have faith in you and your potential. I only work with a limited number of professionals at any one time and am 100% committed to you. I believe you can achieve a deeper level of self awareness that will propel you to even greater career success in the future. 

I have over 6 years of professional coaching experience and am committed to my own continuous professional and personal development. I know of the struggles you are experiencing and can help guide you through your own journey, but I will never take away from you that this is your journey - you are the expert in your life, I am the expert in coaching.

You need to feel comfortable and happy with whoever you decide to be your coach - this is an important step in your personal development and you need to be totally sure you have the right person to support you during this time. If you are considering me as your coach, schedule a discovery call so we can chat through your current situation, expectations of coaching, and this programme in more detail, and you can decide if I am the right coach for you at this point in your life.

I am the coach for you if...

  • You are a successful, talented professional who is fed up with her secret struggle with impostor syndrome

  • You want to align your inner and outer worlds to live an authentic life

  • You are prepared to do the work on yourself to understand your strengths and limitations, and put strategies in place to be able to really show up in your career, in all your awesomeness

 

I am not the coach for you if...

  • You are not prepared to invest both your time and money in changing your mindset

  • You do not want to be challenged

Frequently asked questions

 
 

 

What is a discovery call?

A discovery call is an online or phone session where we meet and you can talk about you and your current situation that has lead you to thinking about working with a coach. I can provide more details about the programme and answer any questions you may have. At the end of the call, we make the decision if we are a ‘fit’ and want to work together.

 

How will you work with me?

Through using a combination of a psychometric tool called Everything DiSC® and coaching I work with you to help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself to be able to make informed decisions about how to tackle your current situation in the most effective way. Working together:

  • we can explore where you get your energy from

  • you will learn what excites you and what drains you and will develop strategies to support you when facing into either

  • you will discover why some relationships are harder than others, and how within your own sphere of influence, you can maximise the chances of achieving the results you want with others

  • you will learn to accept yourself, and others

  • you can decide if you want to develop your strengths to the next level, work on ways to overcome limitations, or a mixture of the two, with a greater knowledge of how any of these decisions will affect you.

 

What happens during a coaching session with you?

During a 90 minute intensive session we focus on the results of your Everything DiSC® profile to deepen your self awareness, build your confidence in your unique awesomeness, and develop strategies in dealing with different work colleagues and situations.

In the 1 hour coaching sessions, we develop a plan of how we take the information from the 90 minute intensive and ‘embed’ this. Sessions are tailored to your aims and goals and each one will have a defined objective set by you. The sort of things that will be covered will include: checking progress in how you are thinking, or what you are doing, to hold you accountable for the changes you desire, and also help provide any additional support that may be required; asking questions to challenge your current thinking, support with gaining new insights and developing strategies and actions to test and complete between sessions; exploring thoughts and actions in a safe environment to gain greater self awareness and decide ways to think, react or do things in future.

 

I want to meet face to face - is this an option?

I use Zoom or Skype for coaching sessions. This allows us to meet at convenient days and times without location being a limiting factor.  

If you would prefer an intensive day of coaching, and a suitable location is suggested, this is an option - pricing for this is on application. You can discuss this with me during the discovery call.

 

Do you have a cancellation policy?

I will only work with you if you are 100% committed to achieving the results you want. My commitment to you is that this coaching programme can definitely support you in achieving this. Once we have agreed to work together, if you do change your mind, you have 14 days or up to the first coaching session (whichever comes first) to cancel. Once coaching has commenced there are no refunds.

 

How quickly can I get started?

Once you have made the commitment to your own personal development, we will agree the days and times of when the coaching sessions will happen. I will send you through a contract. Once the signed contract and payment are received, the coaching can commence.

 
 

 

Do you want to deepen your self awareness and feel genuinely confident so you can fully show up in the career you love?

If you are ready for change, and are looking for a powerful, caring coach to support you, schedule your free discovery call with me, and start your journey to feeling genuinely confident in your unique awesomeness, and excelling in the career of your dreams.
