Three organisations, including a leading national law firm, have retained Phil to coach
multiple staff, managers, and Partners.
Phil has mentored within the Institute of Management’s mentoring programme and mentored and counselled hundreds of people affected by cancer, in New Zealand, USA, and Australia. Staff affected by cancer in the workplace (the cancer-afflicted, their colleagues and/or manager) are one of Phil’s specialty coaching and mentoring areas.Contact Phil Today
Phil has utilised the feedforward approach (focused on further developing the client’s main strengths), the goal setting approach (aimed at evolving perceived, relative weaknesses) and bespoke hybrid programmes.
Phil trained in Sydney in 2005 with Coach U, the leading global provider of coach training programs. But his senior corporate leadership experience, post-graduate qualifications in management and leadership, and his high Emotional Intelligence (his ability to recognize and evaluate the emotions of those around him and within groups of people), position him perfectly as a coach.
Phil’s decades of work in the cancer support arena and his unequalled personal cancer survival experiences in addition to the above, position him as New Zealand’s pre-eminent coach and mentor for people affected by cancer.
The coaching mode can be in person at the client’s workplace, or at a nearby discrete venue (typically a quiet café), or by telephone or Skype. To be discussed and agreed in advance.
Note: as often than not, Phil’s clients are referred by their employers, who pay the cost of the coaching as an investment in their staff.
‘Initially I was uncertain about coaching. Would it provide any benefit? How might it benefit me? However, my instincts were that it would be beneficial. I am happy to say Phil’s coaching provided many benefits.’
CEO, one of New Zealand’s leading independent advocacy organisations
‘Phil’s coaching helped me identify priorities and provided me with a framework for moving forwards in my business and personal lives. It was wonderful to have someone objective providing feedback, helping me steer through the clutter of my business to allow me to make progress.’
Jo, Director, Communications Company
‘Your coaching has been immensely useful, inspiring, and uplifting. You managed to tease out and develop issues that I was either unsure of or couldn’t quite identify. As a result, I feel very confident as I approach this challenge/adventure, armed with some good tools and insights.’
