Manchester Business Coach: Do More, Be Happier | Phil Drinkwater

Manchester Business & Life Coaching

Available online throughout the North West

I support you in making new decisions that will help your Manchester business succeed, while assisting you in identifying the patterns that are holding it back.

Most people believe they lack the intelligence or skills to grow a business. In actuality, we limit ourselves through unconsciously held patterns.

I’m Phil Drinkwater, a leading transformational business and life coach in the UK. I assist business owners and entrepreneurs in realising the unproductive pathways they keep taking, so they can escape vicious cycles.

Let’s create your ideal business and life and make it a reality.

As Seen In

What Business Coaching isn't...

Business coaching isn't just for big business

60% of the business owners I work with are small businesses that only employ a small handful of people, and 20% are startups and entrepreneurs. Only 20% are larger.

Business mentoring is informal

This is an actual, sincere chat between two people who genuinely want to see you thrive. (And we'll laugh too!)

Business coaching isn't pushy

I won't be upset if you don't do what you set out to achieve, but I will be curious as to "why," as that will reveal profound new information to you that can lead you to new, more successful, paths.

Is any of this sounding familiar?

You had big goals for your company and personal life, but now you're starting to doubt them.

Whether you're a first-time business owner or an established one, you don't feel certain that you can accomplish your objectives at the moment.

You're disappointed that your efforts don't appear to be paying off, and this is making you less confident

It's not quite working out for you for some reason, and you're not sure why.

You're full of "shoulds" and "need tos" but you aren't acting on them

You've been looking for guidance, perhaps on YouTube videos and podcasts, but they only give you more ideas that don't work.

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 help.

You're beginning to experience confusion, stress, and worry with regards to your future

You're anxious because you're unsure of how to obtain success.

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

By being unkind to yourself, you're pushing yourself to work harder and harder. Yet this only makes matters worse, because you're now beginning to despise it.

You feel isolated with no one to talk to

You feel alone because you haven't talked to anyone about what's going on in your Manchester company.

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

I had a client that was frequently paid over due, and it was seriously impacting their financial situation

In our first session, a client said, "You try being calm when you don't have enough money in the account to pay the rent and are owed thousands." How, indeed...

They opted to enhance their billing system using automatic reminders after discussion

That seems reasonable, no?

But it was unsuccessful since some clients continued to make late payments

Customers remembering to pay clearly wasn't the problem, because the same people were continuously paying after the due date.

They made the decision to fire the clients, who were doing this for financial reasons, but weren't sure if they could find replacements

Therefore, their marketing and promotion efforts weren't bringing in enough new clients. Yet why?

We then discovered the real problem: despite the fact that marketing wasn't their strongest suit, they wouldn't let go because of trust difficulties

Due of this, a business problem that had never been resolved arose. It caused immense stress and hindered growth in many areas.

We achieved fantastic progress by learning to rely on others and delegating responsibility

By overcoming their actual issue with the help of new knowledge and self-development, they greatly increased their Manchester company's potential for growth.

Want another brief case study?

One of my clients struggled with drive, was a people-pleaser, and was unable to expand her company. She had a strong desire to tour the world, and instead of expanding her company, her thoughts dwelled on this unmet need. We worked on allowing her the freedom to pursue her passions while also meeting her need to take care of her workers. She gained energy, and in just 8 months doubled the number of employees.

Why is this happening?

Business owners frequently blame their difficulties on a lack of abilities or knowledge

Your ingrained habits in life and work are frequently what's really preventing you from achieving the level of professional and personal success you want.

Let's be clear: You possess the knowledge and skills necessary to develop or extend your company

You can succeed if you're willing to break out of the business and personal habits that are holding you back.

How does business coaching with me help?

I have a keen eye for patterns in your behaviour and words

You won't be aware of these yet, which is why you continue to follow the same unsuccessful pathways.

You'll eventually learn to recognise your tendencies before they occur

As we work together, you'll discover how you are acting and reacting, and discover what the real challenges are for you.

You can then choose to experiment with new paths that could prove more successful

You'll learn how you are acting and reacting as we work together, allowing you to choose new ways forward.

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 Manchester 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

My failures helped me gain a great deal of knowledge about business, as well as about myself, life, and how I can best grow.

I've created a programme which will help you do the same.

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.

How will we begin coaching?

What will happen in our Free Discovery Session?

We'll get to know each other, and gain an understanding of what's happening for you, so I can suggest a useful path for us working together.

If you're nervous - I'm incredibly kind

If so, we'll go at your speed. I'm a very understanding person, so after a short time you'll feel more bold and confident. But if you'd prefer a more gentle start to coaching, that's perfectly OK!

All coaching is done online to keep costs accessible to all

Since lockdown, people are more used to working remotely in different ways. I can coach you from afar just as well as in person.

By booking your free discovery session, I'll give you access to my course which details key elements of my own journey, worth £300.​

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?

Purchase single sessions, or a discounted package of 6 or 12 sessions

I'm flexible to fit in with your needs. Single sessions are £179.

In coaching we'll discuss challenges, resistance and how to design an amazing life and business

We can talk about anything that's useful to you, but we'll focus on what's challenging and why you're resistant to certain paths. We'll also determine how you work best, and how all of this fits into the life you truly want.

We'll meet every 2 to 3 weeks, usually

I suggest we meet every 2 to 3 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 tried so far to solve your challenges?

You've no doubt tried some things to move forward. What are they? How successful have they been?

Are you serious about improving your situation?

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

What will happen if you continue on as you are?

If you think about the next 5 to 10 years, will you solve your challenges? What will you do differently to increase your chances?

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?
