how to write a book

 

Ideas are One Thing, Expression is Another…

Some of us are great at the idea part but don’t always manage to get our ideas into the world. Whether that’s something concrete, like writing, or something less specific, like bringing a new innovation or a new way or working to our team or organisation.

It’s natural to want to bring things into the world and to share what we know and believe. Just that sometimes self-doubt or a lack of knowing ‘how-to’ gets in the way…

It’s very likely that you’re already successful and you want to expand; you want to challenge yourself to show up more powerfully. You want to give a voice to your ideas, to share your vision and inspire the people around you–your team or a wider public. You’re driven by why you do what you do, and you balance heart and head; passion and strategy. You know that you succeed by taking action, and that you can change the world by influencing others with your ideas.

There’s a magic place where we can balance the strategic with the creative; where we want to put shape and structure on our ideas so that it’s easier to communicate them, but without quashing the essence of the idea or the innovation that brought it forward in the first place.

I’m an expert in helping people with this balance, bringing a deep understanding of where creativity comes from as well as what gets in the way (so we can move it out of the way!) I can help you feel more grounded in your creativity as well as more powerful as you share your ideas. 

If this sounds like you, and you want to start a conversation about working with me, then let’s connect.

 

“Cathy I’ve had maybe six executive coaches during my time in banking and my experience with you couldn’t be more different. I’d become jaded about coaching and resentful of ‘homework’. With you it’s like the fog has cleared: I have direction, I’m energised, I understand why I’m here and exactly what I need to do next. It’s so easy! You also talk about it like it’s common sense but it’s so different to the prevailing culture. I can’t thank you enough!”

 

“I am writing a book and this course is exactly what I need.”

 

“I bought Cathy’s course because I was struggling to find my ‘voice’. The exercises really helped me to do that, allowing me to free up my communication for a new audience. She explains the exercises very clearly and is lovely to listen to. Thanks Cathy!”

 

“Her voice is that of a teacher who loves the material and genuinely wants the best for the student.”

 

You…

You’re already successful, and you want to expand; you want to challenge yourself to show up more powerfully. You want to give a voice to your ideas, to share your vision and inspire your readers. You’re driven by why you do what you do, and you balance heart and head; passion and strategy. You are decisive and motivated. You know that you succeed by taking action, thinking about a solution isn’t enough. You have to move – that’s when the magic happens.

Me…

I support your ambition whole-heartedly. That balance of strategic and creative is where I work best, and I love it. I’m an expert in human performance, bringing a deep understanding of state of mind and the context for creating change in the world. I can help you bring your bigger vision to fruition because it comes back to understanding what drives you, what you want to create in the world and how to unleash your unlimited potential.
