2019… The Year of Personal Leadership

2019… The Year of Personal Leadership

“If you don’t set goals you become part of someone else’s.”

Written by Jack Russell, Director at Jack Russell Coaching

Do you remember lessons at school on personal leadership, confidence, self-belief, positive thinking, motivation, understanding personalities and communication?

I have asked this question to almost 100,000 people over the past 33 years during my work in the field of personal leadership and the majority said no. I wish I had been taught these skills at an early age as I often struggled with life’s challenges.

I have made it my life’s mission to develop my own personal leadership through positive experiences that in the early days I would have never thought possible.

I have skied to the North Pole, ran an outdoor center on Dartmoor for 10 years, competed 10 times in the Devizes to Westminster Canoe Race and cycled thousands of miles in countries around the world. The thing that has given me the greatest fulfillment has been my on-going study of positive psychology and coaching and through this I have had the privilege to work with socially excluded young people, Olympic athletes, doctors, the military, princes Harry and William and world class organisations.

I have observed that many of us have lost our way in life. Our ability to connect deeply with others, to be present when present, to treat people as they want to be treated rather than how we want to be treated and to support people both physically, mentally and emotionally. My wife is a GP and we constantly talk about the rise in mental health conditions and the need for better personal leadership. A sense of putting on your own oxygen mask before putting on others, being selfish to be selfless.

If you are in need of positive change and you want to recalibrate your life, then one to one coaching may be for you. It is a chance to understand where you are now, where you would like to be and help you discover strategies to achieve your goals.

We have a choice of coaches here ready to work with you and hold you accountable.

For the first time in 19 years of running our business we have decided to put on some open courses and invite individuals to come and join us on some life changing programmes.

“Thank you for a stimulating few days. I learned a lot, about myself, my fellow colleagues and the working environment. I’ve thought of little else since and am hoping to apply my knowledge to my daily interactions. Getting a dozen people who have different backgrounds all to coalesce together in a harmonious way, requires a good deal of careful handling, something you and Rachel manage superbly.”
