Coaching programs with David The Optimist

Coaching For Direction is a coaching program consisting of 10 one-hour sessions designed to help you gain a better understanding of new career directions.

  • During the sessions, you will gain a better understanding of your new role, have more clarity over the resources available to you and know how to allocate them better, and dive deep into the important factors for a smooth transition to your new role.
  • After the coaching program, you will know how to navigate your new role better, have a clear foundation of who you are and how you can use your strengths and values to generate results and drive change, and have a strong understanding of the involvement required from you in the first 6 to 12 months in your new role.
  • After the coaching program, you will have a clear understanding of who you are and who you want to become, and know how to use your strengths to be a better leader and make better decisions in order to drive change.

This program is tailored to individuals like you who are making the transition from a specialist role to a managerial or leadership role.

1st Journey Step: Setting sail
We will work together to explore your strengths, values, and the four most important life aspects that influence your career on a regular basis.

2nd Journey Step: Using the compass
We will explore your future and have a facilitated discussion to understand your expectations, needs, wants, and standards for your new role.

3rd Journey Step: Checking the horizon
We will identify the challenges that may arise during your transition and explore the most important steps for you to focus on in the first 90 days.

David is a warm and thoughtful coach. I went to him for coaching about starting my freelance career and he balanced really attentive listening with insightful observations and gentle challenges which really helped me clarify my thinking and take action. I'm confident that I will learn even more from our sessions as I reflect more on the conversations, and I'd recommend him to anyone who wants supportive coaching with a clear focus on your goals.

I recently completed a six-session coaching program with David through Reciprocoach, and I must say, I was thoroughly impressed with his professionalism right from the start. His initial contact to arrange a conversation to get to know each other and define the program’s scope was a testament to his attention to detail and commitment to his clients.

As our coaching relationship progressed, I found myself growing in trust and psychological safety, thanks to David’s attentive and creative coaching style. He was genuinely invested in helping me delve deeper into the issues I wanted to address, and his coaching approach was truly transformational, allowing me to improve my behaviours and emotions significantly.

Overall, I have no reservations in recommending David’s coaching services. Thank you, David!

It was an absolute delight to work with David. Week after week I would look forward to our sessions and how! At the end of 2 months of my engagement with him. I realised that David's coaching helped me not only to attain tangible results from the here and now but had also enabled me do some real deep inner work that is a prerequisite for those of us who are in the business of helping others. I'd sum it up as- If you are privileged enough to have the opportunity for David to work with you, don't let it go waste!
