10.10am - 11.00am: Becoming Your Best-Self, Steve Neary

Coaching can be complex. As coaches, we face a plethora of presenting issues with our clients around a whole range of issues, many of which as humans we are susceptible to ourselves. There are at least as many coaching strategies and techniques out there for us to use to help our clients, but sometimes keeping things simple can lead to results that are just as if not more effective.

In this session, Steve will provide an overview of Eric Partaker’s book “The 3 Alarms”, a simple system to help clients unlock their best selves across health, work, and relationships.

He has several years of experience coaching and consulting at a senior level within the private and public sectors, both as an in-house practitioner and as an independent consultant.


11.15am - 12.00pm: Identifying Purpose with Ikigal, Jo Clare

Purpose, a key element of intrinsic motivation, appears to be even more of a priority as the world recovers from the pandemic and people re-evaluate their lives, work and what is important to them. As a result, we may be talking about purpose regularly with our clients and helping them to discover theirs, but how often do we take time out to consider our own sense of purpose and what is important to us?

The Ikigai model is a great way to help us to think holistically about what is important, and we are looking forward to taking some time in our session to work through the model to discover, reflect upon or re-evaluate our own ‘reason for being’, and how we can successfully move closer to our sense of purpose.

Jo Clare is an experienced executive coach and OD/leadership development consultant and has coached throughout her 20+ year career. She has coached at executive, director, senior leader, management and team levels in a variety of sectors including travel and aviation, engineering, automotive, higher/further education, global marketing and events and NHS.
