I am often asked what is a SWOT Analysis? Well, I’ve been doing them for decades and it’s one of my favourite tools! When I started The Coaching Tools Company, the Personal SWOT (for career planning and coaching) was one of the very first tools available on the website. It’s a powerful tool to have in your toolkit – read on to get the lowdown…
So, what is a SWOT analysis?
SWOT stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, and the something being evaluated could be a business, a person, place, product, process or even an industry. Also Read More…
People have been emailing saying things like, “I love your new business coaching tools, but where do I start?” So, I wrote this article to outline the 30 business coaching tools in our Business Coaching Toolkit, including why, when and in what order to use them. This article was written to help you use our Business Coaching Toolkit more effectively, but is also helpful if you’re a Business Coach looking for a process to follow, if you want to create a Business Coaching Program or perhaps simply want some new business coaching tool ideas for your toolkit!

Alert All Business Coaches! The Business Coaching Toolkit is here.
When I started my coaching business, I knew I needed these tools! How do I come up with a Mission Statement? What are my Business’ Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats? How do I come up with and track my Business Goals? The resources I found always seemed too complicated.
And then a couple of years ago I started to get emails from my readers and fans asking for coaching tools to support business coaches.
So, thank-you for the inspiration! After months of work and in conjunction with successful Read More…
This is a follow-up to the very personal article where I outed myself for having chronic anxiety (still active but reduced), depression (now past thankfully) and ADD (unsurprisingly still very active!).
I thought I would write this follow-up article because one very brave soul left a comment saying among other things, “If someone struggles with severe depression and anxiety, they should not be coaching.” The comment was kindly put-together and I believe that many people feel the same way, so here is my follow-up post, I hope you read it with an open mind.

“What Makes My Heart Sing?” is one of my absolute favourite coaching exercises. I have used it with individual clients and in innumerable workshops. It is an incredible tool for awakening and happiness. And it’s incredibly simple – and powerful.

But I get ahead of myself.
So, how to use this Powerful Coaching Exercise?

Usually when we use the word ‘stress’ we’re referring to so-called ‘bad’ stress or DIStress. But did you know there is a name for good stress? Eustress, pronounced YOU-stress, is a term coined by endocrinologist Hans Selye who studied the impact of stress on the mind and body. Eu comes from the Greek meaning well or good and suggests that there is indeed such a thing as healthy stress.
So, What Is Eustress and Why is it Important?
Well, without eustress we are not equipped to deal with excitement and/or challenge in our lives.
It’s eustress that fuels our successes Read More…
