How an International Flight Gave Me The Power of Perspective. - Helen Hanison

Coaching took me from London to Washington DC this week.  As I write, I’m on the plane back thinking how incredibly different my work, my life – everything feels from a few, short days ago.  And pondering, why?

In this article, I offer you my 5-Minute Formula to Take-Back Control Of Doing Work You Hate - Without Getting On A Plane!

Why you should hire an Executive Coach. (And how to find a good one.) - Helen Hanison

As an executive coach myself, I’ll admit to being biased on this point.  While I can’t know how well coaching will work for you specifically, I have absolute conviction about one thing: coaching works.

Read this piece to find out what coaching could do for you. And please don't hire a coach without asking them the 5 questions I offer at the end...there is 1 that will feel uncomfortable. But their answer is a deal-breaker! - Home | Facebook I'm an executive coach. I help committed careerists who have hit a crossroads, , and know they need help to make change happen. With my thought-partnership, they make a plan to realign work they love with the life they want to lead. Then act on it.

For some the crossroads in undeniable like redundancy or needing better work-life synergy having become a parent. For others, awareness creeps up on them - they want to leave their corporate home and start something up of their own. But don't know how to start. Other people simply find what they do has become bankrupt of all meaning and use coaching to help them pivot to what will give them purpose back.

It doesn't matter what the crossroads is for our coaching to be powerful. But I do work best with people who know they want to make change happen and it's time to get support with that.

If that sounds like you, do email me at and we'll organise a clarity conversation that will get you into Look forward to speaking to you then.

Best, Helen
