Self Coaching for Entrepreneurs:
Starting up a business on your own can be a lonely journey; even with all the help available to you, only you know what’s right for you and how you are going to make things work. Mike Gibbons is an executive coach and education consultant. His practice focuses on supporting senior professionals looking to explore and develop themselves and their teams for success. He is a passionate believer in the art of the possible, and in people’s ability to reframe situations to access innovative ways through their own particular challenges.
Mike is running a 90 minute in-person workshop, where you’ll learn some fundamentals of coaching, try out some new skills and techniques in a confidential setting, and take away practical tools and tips to develop your own coaching mindset to help you build your successful business.
