Hi I'm James
Hi, I'm James. I am married to my wife Louise, have one young daughter called Sophie, a cat called Ed and we live in Surrey.
My professional background is in retail where I began as a humble cashier in a DIY business. I was young but keen to work hard and progress. I went on to work as a manager for a famous toy retailer and following that, a leading luxury department store where I am now as a General Manager. In my current role I look after a £25 million turnover store and am accountable for a team of 300 people.
Over the years, I have always favoured a coaching style of leadership which has led to my passion of seeing people achieve their goals and aspirations in the workplace.
THIS IS WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
‘The reason I began coaching with James was due to his own mental health story. I knew I had been struggling with anxiety for some time but felt too embarrassed to admit it. The sessions really helped me to rediscover what I want in life from my career to my personal life. James reminded me how competitive I was which helped me to recapture my drive to do well because I want to and not because I don’t want to fail or let people down.
Through a few sessions, I found it was just what I needed to help improve my mindset and my approach to my career and personal life. James has helped me to think more positively and guide me to achieve my goals.’
James has helped me to realise my potenital and what I can achieve when I put my mind to it. When I started my coaching sessions with James I was at the point of giving up on my personal training qualification and was happy to continue on with the life I was living. The work seemed a million miles away and the journey to completing the course was a cloudy image to me. James helped me to sit down and make goals to make each step easier and what seemed so far away and unreachble soon turned into a reality. Im now writing this having finished my course and having decided to go to university to further study the field I am passionate about. James has helped to fuel my ambition and helped to reach things that I may not have been able to do alone.
Before my first session I was at a really low point in my career. I was unsure of how to manage my manager and how to communicate effectively, the difficulties and struggles I was having within my role. Relatively new into my role, I didn’t want anyone to think I was unable to complete the tasks and didn’t want them to believe I was a ‘weak’ link.
Even before my first session James, got me working on my goals and priorites, not only in my career but in other aspects of my life.The first session was a turning point for me mentaly and with James’ coaching and direction to head in, it gave me the focus I needed. I was able to take the control back of my career.
James was great, he made sure I updated him with each task/goal we had agreed on. Without this, im not sure I would have followed through. James enabled me to find my confidence again.
In the space of 2 months, I have been able to secure a pay rise but more importantly feel in control of my career again. Thank you James
