Business Coach Leeds: Do more, be happier | Phil Drinkwater

Leeds Business & Life Coaching

Available online throughout the North

I work with business owners, entrepreneurs and executives to identify the patterns that are impeding the growth of your Leeds business and support you as you make new choices.

Many business owners believe they lack the knowledge and abilities necessary to expand their business. In actuality, we limit ourselves due to behaviours we are unaware of having.

I’m Phil Drinkwater, one of the leader business and life coaches in the UK. I assist business owners and entrepreneurs in identifying the reasons behind their continued inaction so they can move past self-destructive patterns.

Let’s collaborate to make your dream company and life a reality.

As Seen In

What Business Coaching isn't...

Business coaching isn't just for big business

60% of the owners I work with are small businesses that employ a small amount of people, and 20% of them are relatively new startups and entrepreneurs. Only 20% are larger businesses, and often I’m working with executives & senior leaders in these companies.

Business mentoring is relaxed and informal

We'll have an honest, clear but enjoyable conversation where you can be totally without judgement.

Business coaching isn't pushy

Although I won't be disappointed if you don't accomplish tasks you've set yourself, I will be interested in "why," since this may provide important new knowledge to you that may help you choose more fruitful courses.

Is any of this sounding familiar?

You had lofty ambitions for your business and personal life, but now you're beginning to doubt yourself

Whether you're a first-time or seasoned business owner, you no longer feel certain that you can achieve your goals.

Since your efforts don't seem to be paying off, you're frustrated and becoming less confident

You're not sure exactly why it's not working out for you, but it's not.

Despite having a lot of "shoulds" and "need tos," you aren't following through

You may have looked to podcasts and YouTube videos for advice, but all they provide is more ideas that don't work for you.

You're starting to feel uncertain, stressed out, and concerned about the future.

You're beginning to experience confusion, stress, and worry.

As a result of your dissatisfaction with your efforts, you're becoming more critical of yourself

Being hard on yourself forces you to work harder and harder. In spite of this, you are growing to despise everything, which makes the situation worse.

You're feeling alone and without anybody to talk to

Because you haven't shared what is happening at your Leeds firm with anyone, you feel isolated.

What they say..

“I’m doing really well. Probably the best I’ve been. I have to thank you for the tools you’ve given me to deal with issues.”


Case study:

Business coaching uncovers the real issue, and provides the lifelong solution

My client's financial status was being negatively impacted because they were routinely paid past due

You try being calm when you don't have enough money in the account to pay the rent and are due thousands, a customer noted during our first session. Indeed, how...

Following discussion, they decided to improve their paying system by utilising automatic reminders

That makes sense, don't you think?

But because certain customers kept missing payments, it didn't work

It's obvious that the issue wasn't with customers remembering to pay because the same people were paying over the due date.

They decided to fire the clients , but they weren't sure if they could find any replacements

So, the problem was that they weren't bringing in enough new customers as a result of their marketing and promotion efforts. But why?

Marketing wasn't their best skill, yet they wouldn't let go, so trust was the real issue

This resulted in a business issue that has never been resolved. It greatly increased tension in their business, and stifled development in many areas.

Eventually, by learning to rely on others and delegate responsibility, we made amazing progress

By resolving their root difficulty with the aid of new information and personal growth, they significantly boosted the potential for growth of their Leeds company.

Want another brief case study?

One of my clients lacked motivation, was a people-pleaser, and found it difficult to grow her business. Instead of building her business, she was preoccupied with her burning desire to travel the globe. We attempted to balance this, giving her the flexibility to follow her passions while recognising she felt overly responsibility for her employees. She regained her drive and doubled the workforce in just 8 months.

Why is this happening?

Most of the time, business owners attribute their problems to a lack of skills or knowledge

The main thing holding you back from achieving the level of professional and personal success you desire is typically your deeply ingrained habits in life and at work.

Let's be clear: You have the expertise and abilities required to start or grow your business

If you're willing to break out of your bad professional and personal patterns, you can succeed.

How does business coaching with me help?

I'm an expert at spotting patterns in your actions and communication

You won't be aware of these yet, which is why you keep taking the same unsuccessful paths.

Eventually, you'll learn to recognise your patterns before they happen

As we work together, you'll learn how you are acting and responding as well as what your real challenges are.

After that, you can decide to try out different strategies that might work better

Together, we'll discover how you are responding and acting, giving you the knowledge you need to make fresh decisions.

What they say..

“The difference from my first session to now is life changing for me. The growth is so wonderful”.


Who am I?​

I'm Phil Drinkwater, a leading transformational business and life coach who supports clients in discovering how to maximise their potential

I'm a Certified Coach with a totally unique approach that will help you understand why you currently act and react how you do, and why that leads to the challenges you're facing with your Leeds business.

I'll support you in your journey as you move on.

I’ve run my own successful online non-coaching business with up to 20 employees for 22 years

I learned a lot about business, as well as about myself, life, and how I might improve, thanks to my mistakes. You can accomplish the same with the aid of a programme I've developed.

I'm also psychology trained

I'm aware that our needs, thoughts and emotions determine whether we succeed or fail, and how we can change these to produce a more success-oriented mindset.

In our coaching sessions we will...

.. discover what you really want, like growing Marketing Agency Owner Bea ..

..and discover how to get there, like Entrepreneur Sara.

How will we begin coaching?

What will happen in our Free Discovery Session?

We'll get to know one another and grasp what's going on for you so I may recommend a useful direction for our collaborative work.

If you're nervous - I'm incredibly kind

In that case, we'll go at your pace. You'll soon feel more courageous and confident because I'm a really empathetic person. But it's totally acceptable if you want a more gradual introduction to coaching.

All coaching is done online to keep costs accessible to all

People have become more accustomed to working remotely in various ways since lockdown. Coaching in person is no longer necessary.

What they say..

“Before business coaching, I didn’t believe I could have what I really wanted, and I settled for second, third and fourth best. Now I’m moving forward with what I really want.”


How will we continue?

Pricing for one to one coaching services, and discounted packages

Single sessions for business owners and entrepreneurs are £189 - with a 15% discount in your first year of business. Single sessions for executives are £300. Discounted packages are available.

We will talk about obstacles, resistance, and how to create a great life and business during coaching

We can discuss anything that's helpful to you, but we'll concentrate on the difficulties you're facing and the reasons why you're uncomfortable with some solutions. We'll also figure out what makes you most productive and how all of this fits into the life you really want.

We'll meet every 2 to 3 weeks, usually

I suggest we meet every few weeks, depending on schedules. This allows you to take actions so we can evaluate the effectiveness for you.

How does your future look?

What have you so far tried to do to overcome your difficulties?

You have undoubtedly made some attempts to move forward. How successful have they been?

Are you serious about improving your situation?

Out of ten, how much do you want success in your Leeds business?
Out ten, how certain are that you will achieve success?

What will happen if you continue on as you are?

On your current path, is there a way out of your challenges in the next five to ten years? If you want to improve your chance of succeeding, what are you going to do differently?

If there was "writing on the wall" about your future, what would it say?

Close your eyes for a second and let this come naturally to you; what's the "writing on the wall" for you?

What they say..

“In just one session, Phil took me from a place of apprehension to one of clarity and confidence. We spent time working out what things I need in order to achieve job satisfaction”.
