How I can help you as a business coach | Phil Drinkwater

What to hire me for and when to choose someone else

I prefer to be honest and clear. It suits coaching and respects your time by ensuring that you find the right path for you, regardless of whether I’m part of that journey.

So here’s 32 tasks you should consider me for, and 9 which you should accept I’m not well suited for.

Hire me for these 33 things

  1. Procrastination such as putting work off or being last minute
  2. People pleasing such as offering more than is required or efficient
  3. Overwhelm & stress such as struggling to cope with your work, other people or your emotions
  4. Indecision or doubt about paths forward
  5. Imposter syndrome and believing you’ll be found out as unworthy
  6. Anger & aggression such as outbursts and hostility towards others
  7. Anxiety or worry around fear of a future that may not happen
  8. Lack of plans causing your business to wander

  31. Someone to travel alongside you on your journey while listening and providing support   
  32. A change of mindset from seeing threats to opportunities
  33. A space where you can be yourself to express your challenges and find the right path

When to choose someone else

  1. Logistics, engineering and manufacturing industry processes or challenges

I have time for you

I’d love to listen to your journey and where you are today. I’d love to hear what’s going well, and what you’ve yet to achieve. I’d love to just have a chat today, if that’s what you need.

This doesn’t need to end in a sale. I really do have time for you.
