What to do if you hate your job!

The one thing all successful people have in common!

Recently, I’ve been on a drive to develop our team in new and exciting ways, as well as, checking in with our existing SEVEN Coaches and through many fantastic conversations, I couldn’t help but notice one very clear commonality we all have, having our own individual A-Team to support us, help us, teach us and to learn from. Speaking with Eden Abrahams, our New York Associate, her description of her ideal client is ‘someone who gets that they need help to accomplish things’. And I whole-heartedly agree.

It’s not just something for the elite or the rich and famous or indeed a Hollywood film. We live in such an amazing time, where there is literally a group or a professional out there to help you or facilitate pretty much anything you can imagine!

The right question, at the right time, can move mountains! Coaching is all about questioning and a great Coach understands the power of a perfectly-timed question designed to challenge current thought and help you to move your mind forward. Reducing our often ill-fated New Year’s resolutions down to small, actionable goals is the only way to create real change, which got me thinking about how using one of these ‘power questions’ every day for a week on whatever area you want; career, business, relationships, productivity, creativity, confidence, dating, health etc. can certainly help you identify ways to ensure your 2016 is starting off with an appropriate bang!
