Why coaching will not work for you…

It seems a little self-indulgent, no?

You have enough things to juggle at the moment, and you don’t have the time, money or energy to spend on something so ethereal.

And anyway, what would you even need a coach for?

  • you know everything about yourself
  • you never have any doubts or fears
  • you always fully embrace change
  • there is nothing in your life you want to change
  • you are absolutely certain about where you are going
  • your physical and mental fitness is everything you want it to be
  • you never procrastinate
  • you have no areas in your life you want to grow
  • you never self sabotage
  • the stories you tell yourself are 100% accurate
  • you always feel like you are good enough
  • you have no self-destructive habits, at all
  • your time management is amazing, always
  • you don’t need feedback
  • all of your habits are positive
  • you set clear, realistic goals and unrelentingly achieve them
  • there is no stress in your life
  • you don’t wrestle with Imposter Syndrome
  • you are never cynical and never give up
  • you have never had any type of trauma

And, of course, you can do everything on your own and have never benefitted from the input of others.

Of course I’m bring a little cheeky here. Please don’t read the above as a not-so-subtle way of arguing that coaching can solve all your problems (after neatly breaking each one down into attractive and bite-sized portions…

But

If you are honest with yourself, you know that while you are dealing with many personal or professional situations really well – there are one or two that have tripped you up, confused you or sent you into a spin of fight, flight or denial.

Maybe we could have a chat about how coaching might be a way of getting past those?

Training, Public Speaking and Resource Creation

At Qawah, we recognise the importance of learning and development. We have years of expertise in a range of formal and informal education settings, and can off your business, organisation or group a high-quality bespoke product that responds to your needs.

Andy has spent much of his career in training, education and charity work. He has designed and taught lessons, courses, and group-learning exercises for all ages – including time as a tutor on two Youth Work and Culture degrees, as a Chaplain in a secondary setting, and Director of a local youth work charity.

Although we have split our approaches into three different categories below, the reality is that often these delivery styles blend to suit the context. We remain convinced that learning and development is best experienced collaboratively and that individuals and communities learn best when they journey together towards a common goal.

Training:

We specialise in creative approaches to problem solving, and are experts at capturing complex topics and themes and communicating them clearly in a way that encourages proactive responses. Some things we have provided training for include:

  • Charities seeking to re-connect with the purpose
  • Faith communities looking to re-examine their sense of calling and identity
  • Youth, school and community groups who want to explore ways they can positively impact their communities
  • Businesses wishing to deepen their sense of identity, build internal relationships or re-discover their core strategies

Public Speaking:

Andy is an accomplished public speaker, confident and capable in front of crowds of all sizes. He has spoken on a range of topics, including (but not limited to):

  • Well-ness and mindfulness
  • Ethics
  • Spirituality
  • Culture
  • Environmental issues and action
  • Creativity

Resource Creation:

We have years of experience of designing and creating resources for individuals or groups to use, covering a range of topics (including those listed above).

  • lesson plans and assemblies for schools

  • study materials for church or community groups
  • Well-ness journal ideas for individuals or groups.
