Five signs of a top coach, the bottom line & an opportunity to thrive.

My journey as a coach has enabled me to understand what clients see as the strengths and qualities of a good coach. And to know what organisations want from the coaches that they use? For business it’s all about the bottom line. How they increase revenue and how they increase efficiency? However increased efficiency is not just about the need to stop wasting resources, it’s about not wasting people. It is about giving them the best opportunity to be all…

It’s getting cold out there

The autumn days are upon us. Days of hats and gloves.  Fallen leaves soft after a downpour, or crisp underfoot lay on the ground. Driving rain, or strange hot October sunshine confuses us, as multi-layered as we face the uncertain climate. The possible chill of the weather against the warmth of the work-place. And so we dress for all possible eventualities. But it’s not just the weather that is changing. The political climate seems to be in uproar too, with…

Our greatest fear…achieving women?

Sheryl Sandberg wrote in The Wall Street Journal: women are leaning in but they face pushback.   It was a fascinating read covering many aspects of women in business; the issues they face and the disparity between men and women. The fact is that we are 100 years away from equality in the C Suite: women are still living with imbalance.  I have worked with a variety of women over many years, as a therapist and also as a coach. It…

He gained focus and looked ahead. How? The challenge of the focus. Coaching…

When there is nothing to say…

It’s Friday night, time I wrote my blog. I must keep on thinking of something interesting to say, to write.  The thing is sometimes there is nothing left to say, or so it seems. Take today for instance, my spin class was great and I finally felt like I was succeeding. Sweat dripped from my head as I legged it home, jumped in the shower before driving to meet a friend for lunch. Drinking my tea I thumbed through a…

Extrovert versus introvert

I was interested to read The Economist article: Shhhh! Companies would benefit from helping introverts to thrive It challenges what so many of us see as the most effective, or even better personality type: namely, the bigger the personality the better the outcome. I am someone who is seen by many as an extrovert, I do see myself as one too, but over time I have come to realise that I am well and truly on the introvert/extrovert spectrum. I…

About Susie Flashman Jarvis

One part of blogging is to write about myself. That in itself is a challenge, not because I don’t know myself but rather, I need to think about what I want you to know.

As a coach or a therapist the general rule of thumb is, don’t disclose things about yourself unless it is useful for the client. However, I believe in congruence and I believe that someone is more likely to be themselves if they experience authenticity in another.
