Step Into Your Future

Navigate Uncertainty With Confidence And Chart A New Path

 
Next intake of participants on 10 August 2020
1:1 journeys available with flexible start dates upon enquiry
Would You Love To Make A Step Change With Confidence And Clarity?
  • Are you a professional at a key point in your life or work, knowing it’s time for a step change and wanting to clarify the best way ahead?
  • Are you looking to find space to think amidst all the plates you’re spinning and expectations you’re managing?
  • Do you want to recapture your sense of purpose and passion and identify a new range of possibilities?

Perhaps you’re transitioning into or out of a role at work, considering setting up your own business, making the leap to a portfolio career, or are a freelancer/small business owner whose workflow has been severely impacted by recent events now keen to rebuild in a more sustainable and purposeful way.

Or you’re a high achiever wanting to make a broader contribution in the world, but tied up by the demands of day to day life. Lockdown may have given you insights into new ways of working that you’re keen to bring into your leadership and your workplace.

You might be facing a personal change, a redundancy, a significant birthday, children leaving home, a change in relationship status, retirement…or simply an inner impulse to use your time in as fulfilling and meaningful way as possible.

Whatever’s going is likely to prompt a mix of feelings – conflicted inside, a bit scared, confused and excited. You may not know precisely what you want but you do feel the unmistakeable call of something new.

If any of this resonates with you this transformational 8 weeks program is for you. It will give you greater inner steadiness amidst turbulence, clarity of thought despite ambiguity, spaciousness within pace, deeper connection in all your relationships, and fuller expression in your work, world and life. It will help you gather more of your inner resources, and learn the skills to cultivate and act on them.

“…putting in the time to focus on the Step Into Your Future program has resulted in one of the best transitions to a new role I have ever had. I found a deep sense of confidence that I have been missing for some time. I feel energised and have some new tools to utilise and reflect on that will help me to stay in this incredibly positive place. I think it is a monumental achievement for Mandy to help me to get to that point during a global pandemic and unprecedented uncertainty in my life and the world around me.”

Tracy Isacke, Head of Vendor Relationships, Silicon Valley Bank

This ground-breaking program will transform your experience of change, putting you in charge every step of the way and guiding you to get to know yourself at a deeper level so that you can make choices that are right for you.

It will help you skilfully navigate the ambiguity and mess of transitions, review what truly matters, and devote time and energy to you, your fulfilment and your contribution.

The way it is structured takes you on a journey to build more openness to change, rediscover deep self-trust and purpose so that you can make decisions and take action with confidence, and connect with a new vision for your future.

It will support you to move into a new phase of personal and professional leadership where you have more impact.

“Imagine how your experience of change would be transformed if you felt steady amidst turbulence, could think clearly despite ambiguity, and took action with confidence.”
High Level Content By Module

 

Step Into Your Future is a two part program, in 8 themed modules. Over the 8 weeks you get an inner blue-print to navigate uncertainty, chart a new path, and make the change you want to see. It uses a range of transformation techniques to address all aspects of you, and provides practical tools which are easy to learn and apply after the program.

 

The first part helps you get in shape to make change, and harness all your internal resources. The second part helps you focus them to make the change you want. 

 

Part 1: Getting In Shape For Change

Module 1: Your Reality Check 

 

This first module helps you identify where you are right now, the only place from which you can move in an authentic and empowered way. It gives you the thinking space to see what’s really happening in your world, amid the constant pressures, the goals you have to meet, and others’ expectations of you. Taking the time to assess honestly and clearly is the first essential skill in creating change that is sustainable.

 

Module 2: Settling In Your Body

Change starts with you, and being settled in your body is fundamental to generating more stability in uncertainty. Modern-day living means we tend to live in our heads much of the time. That cuts us off from a lot of our internal resources and in challenging times our bodies take the toll. Being grounded and comfortable in your body gives you more ease and confidence, and with practise, a more powerful presence, access to a broader intelligence for wiser decision-making, and a feeling of being comfortable in your own skin.

Module 3: Dealing With Your Feelings

In times of uncertainty and change there can be a lot of different feelings to deal with. Recognising and acknowledging them builds confidence and creates greater trust in yourself and your abilities, so you can identify what you really care about. In this module you learn how to focus on what your feelings are alerting you to, how to process them, and how to magnify the ones that nourish you.

Module 4: Managing Your Mind 

How your mind perceives uncertainty has a huge impact on how well you can use it to drive change. The mind can generate anxiety and thinking traps that keep you hostage, stuck where you are and closed to new possibilities. Module 4 provides straightforward practical techniques to expand your mind’s tolerance to uncertainty, cultivate flexible thinking, and discover greater openness, ease and creativity.

Part 2: Making It Happen

Module 5: Define Your Purpose

A powerful question to ask is ‘Why am I here, and what do I want to achieve?’ Module 5 creates the practical framework to address this question and drive your next purposeful steps. This involves cultivating the reflection and listening skills to explore the key components of your purpose – your values, innate strengths, greatest contribution – and to hear what’s calling you now. Define Your Purpose is the starting point for Part 2 because being clear about your purpose gives you a strong platform from which to make aligned choices and make change happen. Living on purpose is also a key resilience tool and will sustain you in the face of the challenges of change.

Module 6: Reduce Your Drag Factors

Old beliefs about yourself, the world, and what’s possible, limit your true potential. They show up most strongly just when you begin to make changes. Left unexamined, they restrict you with unconscious attitudes like striving to be perfect, self-doubt, self-editing, comparing yourself to others and self-judgment. All these hamper your ability to make a real impact in your work, your life, and your world and keep you stuck in your comfort zone. Module 6 helps you spotlight your old conditioned beliefs and apply techniques to free you from them.

Module 7: Forge Your Future

By module 7 you have already begun refocusing on a clear purpose, dissolving patterns of resistance, gaining greater clarity, and getting grounded in your body for greater creativity and ideas. This module combines what you’ve learned to get the creative juices flowing as you flesh out more fully the possibilities you’ve identified.

Module 8: Fast Forward

In the final module of the program it’s time to make your change happen by designing a strategy that will work for you and an action plan of the concrete steps to make your vision for change a reality. It’s also time to celebrate the progress you’ve made. As you leave the program, you are equipped to boldly step into the future, with a valuable toolkit of practical frameworks, enquiries and exercises which you can revisit and draw on to stay on track.

About Mandy

I’m an experienced facilitator and coach with a wealth of experience of the worlds of human transformation, business, and leadership. My passion is for focusing people on realising their fullest potential and expression in their work and in their world. With extensive experience working with clients in a wide range of industries and organisations, I’ve identified what enables people to live and lead well, and engage with uncertainty and change with more ease and greater reward. I’ve learned, as a fast-paced, reactive, make-it-happen, over-achiever, that it also takes inner steadiness and purposeful action to succeed.

This program takes my practical experience with a wealth of clients, and integrates many of the processes and tools proven to innovate and generate positive change. Click HERE for more about me and my credentials.

Mandy provided expert coaching during a key period in my career as I transitioned between roles. Her style enabled me to really connect mindfully with how I adapted my approach to leadership. Each session was thought provoking and very useful.

Ashley Schofield

Chief Executive Officer, giffgaff

Working with Mandy gave me a much better insight into my core values, motivators and behaviours. She provided tools to help me structure my thinking to define and create an exciting new role for myself within our business. I'm confident that many of the positive changes that Mandy has worked with me to affect are permanent and will deliver ongoing benefits to me professionally and personally. I found working with Mandy an inspiration. I have huge regard for her insight, energy, integrity and ability to engender long lasting change in others.

Amanda Blacklock

Global Marketing Director, GSK

Mandy coached me at a time when I was considering a significant change in my working arrangements / life. The value she added was that in every meeting she stress tested my perceptions of the situation and what was possible, helping me to develop ideas that were outside my current realm of thinking, to see new and different possibilities, and always to pin down actions that I would take to progress the situation. On a number of occasions I went into a session with Mandy feeling stuck and immobilised and came out feeling hopeful, energised and with a clear sense of how to move forward. The result of all this? I successfully renegotiated my working arrangements and now feel they are much more closely aligned to what is important to me in the whole of my life.
Matthew Gregory

UK Head of Learning and Development, KPMG

My coaching experience with Mandy was incredibly liberating – showing me how every moment I can create the life I want. I began working with Mandy when I was starting a new business and finding it overwhelming and all consuming. Mandy was wonderful and very containing. She helped me to identify my values and build alignment with my ways of living and working, and with the business I was creating. Through the coaching I gained clarity and insight into what was important to me and revolutionised the way I spend my time and energy both at work and at home. I am very grateful for this as it has helped me become a happier, more integrated, less stressed person. I learned decision making tools which I still refer to today, built confidence to navigate the situation I was facing, spoke up in a difficult interaction, managed my boundaries and much more. Mandy also helped me to create a vision for my life and my future which was very exciting and I continue to be amazed at how that unfolds even today. Mandy’s enthusiasm, intuition, business sense and caring make her a wonderful coach with a lot of depth in what she has to offer.

I have worked with Mandy on various times over the last 10 years. Her insightful approach to coaching has always been a great help.

Jasper Hanebuth

There are definitely times in life when you reach a crossroads and things can go either way.  Redundancy can be devastating and frightening but, with the right support, can also be liberating and exciting.  I had never thought of using a coach but then I met Mandy and with her help I worked out what success meant for me and what I really wanted to achieve for the future.  I was able to turn redundancy into a brave new start and 18 months down the line I'm still thankful that I took some time get a new perspective and make the right choices for me.

I think Mandy is a very talented woman and coach. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a coach whether it be for personal or career. I honestly believe that if I hadn’t worked with Mandy I wouldn’t be as assimilated or as happy as I am today.
