Business Owner and Managing Director
I had coaching recently with a different coach and was quite disappointed with the un-structured nature of the coaching sessions and the rather limited progress I made. Consequently, I was reluctant to try coaching again, but thought that WBS’ promise of a straight forward, structured and efficient approach was worth a try.
Managing and developing a business I naturally have a lot on my mind and it was extremely helpful to talk some of my issues through with the WBS coach. The agenda was always mine and through the coach’s insightful questions I managed to explore each issue in full, get it into the right perspective and chose actions that I could and would commit to.
The coach kept his promise of structured sessions and he always made sure that I stayed focused on my agenda for the session. The coach allowed me to wander slightly off target before pulling me back which made me feel that I could explore all my ideas and thoughts as long as they were relevant to what the session was about.
My sessions were quite intense and the WBS coach made me work hard and at the same time there was always room for a lot of humour and laughter.
Regardless of my mood when starting a session I felt invigorated and inspired to move on after each session.
I have made excellent progress on the business front and learnt a lot about myself at the same time.
This is how coaching should be.

I have had 6 coaching sessions with the WBS coach. This is the first time that I have experienced coaching and it has been both an interesting and rewarding experience.
The first session I found the hardest, having to dig deeply into my thoughts did not come easily, but with the coach’s questions I managed to understand a little more about my own situation, how I felt about it and how I could start to deal with it. The sessions have become easier for me, but I can always rely upon the WBS coach to ask a thought provoking question that stimulates my own reasoning and thought process.
My coach always listens carefully and has the ability to pick out the salient points that need to be delved into further through his questioning. Sometimes this takes me by surprise, but always he hits on a point that I should consider and not hide from.
These 6 sessions have helped me enormously through a difficult time at work. I value the coaching I have had with the WBS coach, it has been a very positive experience and I feel I am better equipped to manage my work environment and myself!
