How authentic are you in the online world?

It has been with interest that I have examined the statistics from my latest blogs. All about mental health in the workplace, these blogs may have challenged the reader with regard to an authentic response. So I have checked out how many have commented or liked them against the number of people who have read them. The question is what does it tell us? As an executive coach I spend many hours with senior leaders, business owners, managers and entrepreneurs. They…

Suicide. How can Corporates provide support?

I have often worked with suicide. Men and women who have found life intolerable. They have come from a wide demographic, triggered to contemplate ending their lives by varied sets of circumstances. Now my main focus is on coaching within organisations. Individuals who can afford to pay for coaching.. A percentage of my work is still pro bono supporting charitable organisations. Poverty (a main trigger) may not be something my current client’s experience. They do however experience fear of redundancy…

Building mental resilience in the work-place.

We all need to regularly check ourselves for physical signs of dis-ease, don’t we? You know the sort of thing, Body Mass Index, lumps and bumps in various places, moles and marks on our skin. What do we do when we discover any of the above? The best practice is to take a trip to the GP. Why? To chat it through, to find out if there is anything to worry about.

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…

Beating shame.

Do you have hopes and dreams? Do you want to live life to the full? Do you want to achieve and deal with the stuck places in your life? Coaching, once only available to the few is now accessible to all. Life coaching, business coaching, executive coaching are close relatives to therapy. Coaching borrows many of its techniques and knowledge about how we operate in the world from therapy and makes it future and outcome focused. Solution focused, it draws…

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.
