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.
The Underestimated Skills Many Results-Driven Folk Miss!
The secret weapon to career success is not talent or work ethic, it’s not even network or connections or education. People skills, or as is most popularly termed now, soft-skills in our work and lives are the supportive behaviours, that act almost like a conduit through which our talent, expertise, knowledge and ability can flow and develop.

Have you ever noticed, when you look up a person or company on Google, that one of the first 3 links that appears in the search results is a LinkedIn profile? Such is the power and influence of your LinedIN profile, if it’s not strong and accurately reflecting you at your best, it’s absolutely a hindrance and could be holding you back!
Remember I mentioned Henry Ford’s quote in the 3rd part of the series “whether you think you can, or think you can’t – you’re right”. Your beliefs about yourself influence your thoughts, so really what is at play here is an awareness of your inner beliefs and how those inner beliefs can determine your success as a leader.

Where to begin! I’ve just spent a truly transformative 6 months working with Oliver from SEVEN. I was feeling really stuck when I started thinking about coaching. I had a seemingly great job, lots of friends, a supportive family but somehow I was feeling unfulfilled and anxious and wondering if this was it? I had an idea of what I wanted my life and work to feel like but I felt completely at a loss as to how to achieve it. After an incredibly inspiring telephone conversation with Evelyn from SEVEN she suggested Oliver as a coach and so it began. I had no idea how empowering it would be to have someone in my corner whose soul aim was to help me become the best possible version of myself and make those daydreams a reality. The amount of energy and enthusiasm that he injected into our sessions was infectious. He provided me with endlessly interesting and helpful resources and was brilliantly creative in his approach to our sessions. Oliver has helped me work out what I need in my life to make it feel fulfilling and exciting. He has also helped me to value my unique skills and strengths and to devise a strategy for using them more effectively at work and in my personal life. As a result of my work with Oliver I've restructured my work so that I can focus on what I love, I’ve negotiated a more flexible set up at work so I can travel more and I feel empowered and more confident in my personal relationships than I ever have before. Perhaps most importantly. I now feel like I’m in charge of my life and I can achieve the things that once thought were beyond my reach.read more
I can say with utmost confidence that Oliver from SEVEN has completely reinvigorated my career, helping to open up new opportunities for the future. He did this by helping me find the core of who I am and then use these skills to the best of my abilities.
When we first started working together, I felt completely off-course and didn’t know which way to turn in my career. Through a series of engaging and creative exercises we worked together to tackle the issues that were holding me back, clarify my career trajectory, focus my values and discover my leadership style.
In each session, Oliver always had an infectious, optimistic energy that helped make this such a rewarding experience for me and each time I felt energised to take the next steps in my journey. I’ve completed our time together with such a deep appreciation for what he does. My career has taken leaps and bounds, and I’m now armed with the techniques to help me grab each and every opportunity in a way that is most beneficial for me.read more
