Before being coached through Unlimited Potential, Peter’s (not his real name) career had stalled and his health was in jeopardy. Through one-to-one leadership coaching, Unlimited Potential helped him overcome his health issues and kick-start his career.
Peter’s career was at a standstill. He was overweight, a smoker and a heavy drinker. His unhealthy lifestyle meant he had developed type 2 diabetes. Peter had been with his organisation for nearly two decades and he had reached a senior management position. His health issues meant he was increasingly working from home and less visible in the office. Although Peter was well-respected within his own team, his managers were concerned about his communication skills. His leadership team asked Unlimited Potential to intervene with one-to-one leadership coaching
The Unlimited Potential coach used the first coaching session to understand Peter’s situation and the reasons behind his poor health. Peter’s unhealthy lifestyle was affecting his self-confidence, his communication skills, his day-to-day work and his career. It was clear he wanted to address his physical condition and wellbeing, so using a combination of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and Eriksonian hypnosis, the coach focused on Peter’s willingness to change and offered him options he might like to explore.
“[My Unlimited Potential coach] helps me see thing with different eyes. If I feel I have a challenge and it’s a bit of an impossible task he’ll break it down for me and help me see it in a different light. I always leave our coaching sessions with a more positive approach”
Peter began changing his habits immediately after the first coaching session. He’d already lost several kilograms by the second session – and his improving health meant he was in the office more. He was encouraged by the results and keen to continue his progress.
The transformation continued, so by the fourth session Peter had reversed his diabetes and substantially enhanced his career prospects. He’d improved his relationships with colleagues and managers – and most importantly, he had started to believe in himself again.
Peter has continued being stretched and challenged by his Unlimited Potential coach and is still working on his own self-development. He’s currently focusing on improving his leadership style and communication skills.
Unlimited Potential’s coaching has directly resulted in a transformation of Peter’s career, health and life. He has persisted with his weight-loss programme and has also cut back on his drinking. He’s developing a new global role for himself within the organisation – creating his own job specification and bringing a new team together.
