What do you love about coaching?
 

I like seeing the results. Once there was a fog, now there is a clear view. Once there was confusion, now there is clarity. Once there was turmoil, now there is calm. Once there was no way forward, now there is a plan. 

 

I find each conversation to be humbling and it is always different. Coaching is demanding, and the challenge stretches me. I love learning and developing.  

 

Most of coaching is about listening and even if there is no answer to the predicament that someone is in, the mere act of someone else bearing witness to the situation, the client is supported. 


How do you unwind?

I am 62 and I still play on the XBOX, every day.  Battlefield V is really the only game I play, and I get my butt kicked from one end of the map to the next.  There is always someone better than you, like in real life, but that does not stop me learning from others, wanting, and working to be even better myself. I believe that my reaction times are kept sharp. The game helps me to appreciate my strengths and I concentrate on those. Both my children, Max and Jett play too.  


What inspired you to work with CTG?


Simply, I enjoy working with Brad.  He makes me think, he is grounded, honest in what he says and thinks, and he challenges me.  (Christ! He challenges me!)  His mind is sharp too.  His ideas are intriguing, and he shares a similar devilish humour.  I would also say that he is inspirational, in that he sets a bar in how he delivers his training.
