Our schools are struggling with stressed out teachers….

Feb 22, 2015   //   by Anne Russell   //   Blog, Life Coaching, Nu U Program  //  No Comments

I have worked now with Primary, Junior and Senior school staff regarding high levels of sickness due to high levels of Stress. That dreaded word in Education. Ofsted and Stress. Those two dreaded, linked words.

Recently worked with a Primary school, teachers and assistants, to bring a calmer sense of management of the large work load, the pressures they face and handle, without any recourse to HOW. This is what is missing in our Education system, I think. What are called new initiatives are constantly being brought along for the Staff to absorb and deliver. Extra pressures.

What is NOT brought in alongside all of this is the way of how to deal with it, how to deal with the new thinking, the new demands, the effect it has on staff not managing the increase in work load, simply because there is so much of it, the demoralisation of Self in the criticism they suffer under unrealistic expectations of them. Gradually it takes it toll, constantly they are adjusting and becoming used to the pressure. They don’t notice that till a crisis appears perhaps, or there is lots of sickness amongst the Staff.

This is where an insightful Head Teacher or Deputy can put into place the type of Workshop that Coaching NorthWest delivers, Stress Management, and the recent one was no exception. The Staff are genuinely doing their very best, a great group of people.

The feedback said they were pleased with the information, the usefulness of it, the motivational influence and content. Cheers to this school for giving me the opportunity to give them skills, techniques, and thought processes to support them through a challenging time.

I am certainly passionate about my work and what I can do to improve people’s lives. I am sure this hard working, deep thinking group of people felt that, and will put this info, delivered over a few sessions to good use, and not only feel more in control of their way forward at work,  but be happier, calmer people to boot. They deserve that.

Freedom!

Sep 14, 2014   //   by Anne Russell   //   Blog, Life Coaching, Nu U Program  //  No Comments

A lady  has been talking about gaining Freedom. And how losing this and that is the way. For me, Freedom is found Within, not something you do to achieve it. I think it has been said before, but something I believe, that your MIND is the key to Freedom.

That even if a prisoner on whatever level, no one, no thing, can take away your thoughts. And these are your possessions, your creations of your Freedom.

What are your thoughts on that?

Wellness begins in the mind……

Aug 25, 2014   //   by Anne Russell   //   Nu U Program, Tip of the Week  //  No Comments

Our cars, our homes receive lots of attention to be their best, to be improved to function better, to serve us well for our comfort.

What about our bodies, our minds, our spirit? This message is heard but not always acted upon:

Take care of your body as lovingly, as carefully, as thoughtfully as you would a child.

Now tell me, do you?

Excellent company work with…..

Ardent Credit Card Services at Moorgate Point Knowsley.

Great people, who worked really well with me to introduce the Staff to good communication skills and renew their thoughts around working with the public.

In a short space of one morning, 12 of their staff worked in two groups with me to stimulate new thinking processes, and absorb lots of great new ideas for their

Well Being. We covered some Nutritional aspects, Positive Thinking, Anger Mangement, Communication with Difficult People, Stress Management, but focused mainly on the Positive Communication skills that come from knowing yourself – ie Personal Development.

Yes, it brought out new thinking, awareness, curiosity and new skills, enough to develop the Staff’s approach and attitude to their work, and their own lives.

Testimonial from the Manager Justine Crawley – “Anne made everyone feel relaxed. The Course was well structured and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks Anne.”

And from Clare, Training Manager: “I enjoyed the Presentation. Does make you stop to think about yourself and how making the changes suggested can positively impact your quality of life. Thank you.”

If you would like to hear more or have a Course or Presentation designed just for your Staff’s situations, please simply ring me for an initial chat to discuss your thoughts.

Thank you to Ardent for their great interest on the day.

Seller or Buyer?

Jan 3, 2014   //   by Anne Russell   //   Blog, Nu U Program  //  No Comments

Will you sell to yourself the power of your goals or buy into the excuses that sweep around us?

You must take a close non-excusing look at yourself.

Do you want something to be different?

Your Weight perhaps, your State of Mind perhaps? Your Energy perhaps?

The answer IS in you – either let the excuses exist for another period of time, or:

Sell the notion of getting into the solutions to yourself.

The first 100 days of THIS year – they make that difference – or not!

Proven fact, first 100 days, step out here, take the supporting hand, get the answers.

Get moving. The easy bit is letting the right Life Coach, Nutritional Advisor or Therpist show the answers.

The first important most difficult part is hitting the numbers or writing the email to start the process.

Once that’s done, you have made the start to Sell to Yourself what you REALLY want – and need.

The rest will be so much easier, and you will be so pleased with yourself.

Drugs to slim: don’t do it!

Sep 20, 2013   //   by Anne Russell   //   Nu U Program  //  No Comments

There are reports around of the deadly effect of slimming pills – a young bright much liked young man is the latest reported death.

There is no need at all to even think of taking any sort of pill to diet, to change your shape, to get fit and have good body image, feel good with yourself.

This tragedy is one very important reason the programe NU U was created here at Coaching NorthWest, unique and amazing in it’s results.

Read the first sentence again. Feel what the parents and friends are going through. Imagine. Could it be more awful?

Please, treat yourself with respect – and knowledge grounded in truth.
