It can get lonely as you move up your career ladder. Colleagues become boss-pleasers, your every thought is taken as policy, and the number of people you can turn to for advice and support dwindles as you rise.
Executive coaching fills this gap. Your coach gives you a safe environment to explore where you are going: a place to talk things through with someone who really understands. At SherpaNLP, we have more than 25 years of international management and coaching experience, from one-person-businesses to federal governments, there are not many situations we haven’t experienced!
Your coach will be empathic and encouraging, but will never flinch from telling you the truth in a way your colleagues cannot. It’s impossible to see yourself from the outside - only your coach will tell you non-judgmentally how you really come across and be able to help you develop the areas you need.
By exploring your career and ambitions, you will gain a better understanding of what is really important to you, what your values are, and what might be holding you back. It’s too easy to get pulled onto the career hamster wheel of moving onward and upward; spend time with your coach and you may be surprised to find that your goals are not as important as you thought. Changing direction could bring you more personal success and happiness. Or maybe the way you are heading is perfect for you: in which case, an executive coach can help you get there faster.
Your coach can also facilitate 360 degree feedback, and help you improve relations with your team. In addition, a coach can show you how to build skills in areas you want to develop, such as communication, leading change, taking risks and so forth.
At SherpaNLP, we are passionate about coaching. It gives us the biggest kick to help successful people become even more successful by improving their motivation and tackling whatever’s holding them back. We offer a wide range of services but every programme is designed for the individual client. With SherpaNLP, it’s never one-size-fits-all, but bespoke sessions aimed at achieving exactly what is important to you.

About three weeks ago, my daughter had her first sleep over party. Seven of her friends attended and, for most, it was their first sleep-over. Although they had the time of their life eating and participating in the games and activities I had planned, it was a lot of work for me and the responsibility of watching the girls throughout the night didn’t leave me much room for getting a good night’s sleep. The following day, after everyone left, I was exhausted! I can’t remember the last time I felt that way but it was to the point that I felt delusional! Not a good thing when you have two little kids to take care of…LOL! What was interesting was my exhaustion and lack of sleep left me feeling hungry, like I hadn’t eaten in days. I was tired, miserable and hand had this strong desire to eat. I ended up eating stuff I didn’t even like – hot dogs, chips, cake. I wanted to eat something, anything and that’s what was available so that’s what I ate.
Since I started taking care of myself and making my well-being a priority, I’ve been pretty good about getting in at least 7 hours of sleep each night so I had completely forgotten what it was like to have these cravings. Instead of beating myself up for making poor food choices, I decided to turn this experience into a great opportunity and give you a breakdown on why I was out of sorts:
Sleep deprivation increases your appetite. Ghrelin is the hormone that makes you feel hungry and Leptin tells you when you’re full. When you’re lacking sleep, it causes a hormone imbalance so you’re inclined feel hungrier and eat more.
Sleeplessness impairs your cognitive skills. It disrupts a person’s memory and the ability to think and process information clearly. Because your body is craving sleep, you’re unable to be present and focus.
Sleep loss will leave you feeling lethargic and unmotivated to get through the day depriving you from making decisions with confidence and clarity.
Sleeping less increases anxiety and depression. You may experience higher levels of anxiety and depression because your body is unable to regulate its mood.
Lack of sleep increases your production of the stress hormone, cortisol. Cortisol is responsible for the “fight or flight” response we have when we’re under any kind of stress, whether it’s mental, physical or emotional.
The less you sleep the less your body burns calories….WHAT ?!?!?! WHY ?!?!?! One reason is because during the sleep cycle, REM sleep is the prime time our body burn calories. If we don’t experience longer periods of REM sleep, our body doesn’t have the proper time to burn calories and fat.
So, the next time you feel the urge to eat coming on and you can’t figure out why, think about how many hours of sleep you had the night before. If it’s due to sleep deprivation, listen to a show I recently co-hosted, “The Health Benefits Of A Good Night’s Sleep” on Life Coach Chat Channel for tips on how to rest for success!

Board breaking is a great way to demonstrate how we all have the in built strengths to break away from our limiting beliefs, fears and worries.
The physical act of breaking the board is an outward display of what has happened in your unconscious mind.
Great motivational tool
