Singleton Consulting

John Singleton

Singleton Consulting
Business Coaching & Strategic Planning

John is a Certified Executive Coach and through his coaching, allows others to discover what they have inside, to believe in themselves, and then act upon what they know and discover.
It is the discomfort of learning about ourselves that is not treasured and Executive Coaches are a tried and tested tool that gives comfort and understanding on this journey.

This journey will activate clients to broaden their self-awareness, create a desire to learn more and be more and enhance all facets of their life.
The journey will be made up of a series of conversations that contain observations, queries and proposals from the coach to motivate and educate the client about concerns and issues they may not see at present.
In order to change our lives we must be willing to change our habits.

As a coach;
“I am committed to working with people to find their path and acting as a support for that journey.
I am the pencil in their hands that drafts the plans and offer suggestions and guidance where requested.
A coach is a person who is ‘The Pencil’ in your hand helping you draft the plans you choose the path, the methodology, and the activities that will bring you closer to your objectives.
Together we will find a methodology that stretches you to find what is within and together we will use that information to move forward in your search.

My role is to facilitate, dreaming, visioning, growth and learning.
I will be your sounding board and as you move ‘The Pencil’ as you wish to, you will draft your vision and the best plans for you to succeed.

I believe that the success of coaching and the relationship it builds in not in solving a problem, success is in the journey itself to find a better and more effective you.

In order to change our lives we must be willing to change our habits.

That will be uncomfortable and stretching and fun.
So enjoy!”
