Who I Work With
who i work with
The people I do my best work with are:
People who have achieved amazing success by some measures, but want more from work and life.
Sometimes the more my clients want is more success, sometimes it is a different type of success, sometimes it is a different quality of success.
Sometimes, they don't even realise they how amazing their success is until we meet - that's one of the fun parts for both of us.
people who want to be significant, and great big changes in the world.
Sometimes these changes are big and overarching, important to the world as a whole. Sometimes they are within a small part of the world that my client inhabits, as 'small' as a relationship or a family. But however big the changes they want to create are, my clients want to be significant: to affect change in the world around them.
people who have been through an experience - often of adversity, sometimes of learning - which gave them a deeper understanding of themself and the world
This means my clients are ready to learn: they understand that changing yourself takes commitment, but they know - or at least have a spark of the idea - that it can be incredible, and can change your life forever.
"Robbie is an exceptional coach. I turned up to our first session after 3 years of an intense entrepreneurial endeavour with nothing left in the tank - I felt like a lost boat at sea without a horizon line. Through focused sessions where Robbie was fully committed to helping me identify my true path and tackling the barriers holding me back, I experienced a number of personal revelations that have enabled me to move forward with clarity and boldness. More so, I have a clear horizon line again and a calmness and contentment in knowing how to get there. Robbie will push you as far as you are willing to go and encourage you into places you didn't know existed - go with it, you can only end up somewhere more truthful than before!"
"In the four months we have worked together Robbie Swale has had an amazing impact on my business and life. Robbie has helped me to change the way I think about my business from one of worry and scarcity to one of possibility and abundance; the anxieties of first-time entrepreneurship have been replaced by joy and hopeful anticipation. He has helped me to identify, challenge and overcome mental obstacles to growth.
Alongside this work on internal issues such as mindset and attitude, one of the most refreshing and (being new to coaching) surprising features of the engagement has been the focus on tangible and measurable external goals. Robbie has really helped me to set and achieve seemingly difficult, improbable targets. We have won more business from more clients as a direct result of his coaching. More than that, we express a new level of confidence and assurance that has made a tangible, remarked-upon difference to our existing relationships."
'Working with Robbie over the last three months has had a transformational impact on my career direction and ambition. His ability to ask the right questions and probe at the right moments enabled me to find clarity in what I wanted to do and how I wanted to do it. I was starting to feel deflated by the pressure of running a company on my own and the coaching allowed me to reconnect with why I do it and to get excited about its potential again. The decisions I have taken as a result of our time together would not have happened without his support, enthusiasm and ability to enable me to draw conclusions about what is the right direction for my career development.'

'Working with Robbie has smashed my expectations of what I thought we could do through coaching, and I'm a coach! We set really big goals for what I would achieve by the end of my engagement with him. I really was thinking they would be a serious stretch. But with Robbie's assured caring, supportive and challenging coaching I met them all, and with ease! My business has gone from strength to strength, as well as areas of my personal life, and I really think that I wouldn't be in the confident, successful place that I am now if it wasn't for him. I couldn't recommend him more highly and his coaching is worth every penny.'
