Jo Murfin Coaching

Do you want to:

– feel confident?

– know your worth?

– focus your energy?

– find your strengths?

– do something you love?

I help leaders to solve their leadership challenges, find their unique identity and get on track for a career change or new life direction.

What is Coaching?

Coaching is a powerful guided conversation, using professional tools and techniques and insightful questions, so you can discover ideas that will work for you. Coaching is a unique time and space for you, with focused attention and no judgement, so you can find your strengths and confidence. Coaching has a clear purpose and a future focus.

Coaching is for you if you want to make a change to get what you want in your working, business or personal life.

You can be your best self and get what you want:

  • in life
  • at work
  • in business

What is strengths-based coaching?

Strengths-based coaching supports you to see your strengths clearly so you can feel more confident, use them more often and build a success mindset.  Working with a Qualified Coach can help you to focus your energy on the things you can control, know your worth and maximise your strengths.  Your coach will guide you using professional tools and techniques in a safe and non-judgemental space.  Coaching has a clear purpose and a future focus so you can action plan to get what you want. 

What are strengths?

Strengths are your natural positive attributes, often things that you use without realising on a daily basis in all areas of your life, not just in work.  Take a look at my video to find out more about how I help clients to see their strengths clearly.

Fairness, kindness and being authentic are really important to me. As your coach I will be my real self so we can build trust. You can feel comfortable to be open and bring diversity issues with no judgement. You will have the space to think creatively to make the most of your strengths.

‘I was at an interesting point in my career, I gained a promotion and needed some additional support with this change. I am really pleased Jo coached me, she has a vibrancy and a kindness which helped me to be open and honest with her.
