The Good, The Bad and the…Beautiful

We might be based in Leicestershire, but business opportunities this month have come from as far afield as New Zealand and Sweden. There’s a growing attraction and realisation that investing in developing yourself, your people and your clients, is a smart plan.

We’ve been asked to deliver an online coaching programme by one of the UK’s leading universities. It’s to support their international MBA students, to help them manage their study time well, so that they stand a better chance of getting the results they work so hard to achieve. So, there’s an element of psychology and practical skills being built into it – in an engaging way. It has to be engaging. Engagement is what we do.

We’re also delighted to welcome a new client operating in the healthcare sector where we’re supporting them to elevate their business to the next level, with monthly coaching and mentoring support.

At the end of this week, I’m delivering a brand-new team building and leadership development programme, designed by us and Carnegie Great Outdoors, at Leeds Beckett University. It’s a pilot course, based on my book, The Power To Get Things Done (Whether You Feel Like It Or Not). If we get the thumbs up we’ll be rolling out more, later in the year.

As always, I’ve had the privilege of interviewing some of the very best business leaders from the UK and America, on my radio show, this month. If you missed the live interviews, you can catch up with them here

On the home front, there’s been inspiration, overcoming adversity and failure! I saw heavy metal band – Iron Maiden, again. The last time was as a boy in 1983! I also had the privilege of meeting and sharing lunch with 3 times snooker world champion, Mark Selby – such an inspiration for my sons! And so too were the Leicester Riders basketball team, who we were also privileged to experience and meet, thanks to Chairman Kevin Routledge. I also persisted in overcoming my fear of snakes (need to keep an eye on his head!).

On the failure side, I took a day off to take a friend fishing. We sat for hours and caught nothing, and then, in the evening, watched my beloved football team get well and truly thrashed by his team, Tottenham – by 6 goals to 1. My son said ‘Dad, you’ve not had much luck today’! Overall though a great month!

Best Wishes,

Chris.

“It was a pleasure to be a guest on Chris´s Voice America show; I hope I was
able to share a few nuggets from my experience in business. Chris – you are
a natural communicator and connector.Chris kindly accepted an invitation to spend a couple of days with me after
the show, to rekindle his connection with the Yorkshire Dales.  It was a
pleasure to get to know Chris more and understand even more of what he
offers his clients and, potentially, clients I work with too.It was a great investment of my time, understanding the dynamic and
breadth of Chris’s range of skills. Chris is a ‘people’ person; he has an ability
to get the heart of issues and help people work through these, both
individually and as teams. I am really excited about exploring ways to work
more closely with Chris in the future. I am also looking forward to reading his
forthcoming book ‘The Power to Get Things Done’.If you want to ‘be more and achieve more’ you need to talk to Chris; he will
make a difference in so many ways.”
