Your Pathfinder VIP Day

Create Space, Make Decisions, Action Plan

Work 1:1 With Transformational Coach Amanda Muckalt

One purposeful day to give you the space to consider the important questions you’ve been too busy to address. Through Amanda’s Pathfinder Process you gain the insight, understanding and direction that currently elude you, so that you can make decisions, and commit to actions that focus on what really matters in your life.

Right Now You Need Time To Think

 

Right now you need time to think. You’ve achieved a lot and are proud of that. You know you’re a role model to others, and yet from the inside things don’t feel so great anymore. It did feel great at one time, but now your priorities are shifting. Other things need your attention – your personal life, your relationships, your family, your health, your spirituality, your fulfilment. There may be a big decision to be made, and you keep putting it off because you don’t have the head space to make it.

One of the challenges of success, and holding a position of seniority in an organisation or in your own business, is finding people to talk to who you can trust and who can relate to your experience. In the past, at various points, you may have sought out professional coaches or therapists but sessions fizzled out because demands on your time made regular meetings difficult. You might have turned to self-help books and podcasts for insight, but found they didn’t really match your situation and were too general to be of value. You may have thrown yourself into health regimes as a way of supporting your mind and body, but these haven’t addressed the deeper questions, and so you haven’t been able to sustain them.

All this has left you in the uncomfortable position of feeling like there’s no place where you can voice what’s going on for you, get clear in your thinking, and make purposeful choices.

 

If this is you, Your Pathfinder VIP Day is here.
Your Pathfinder VIP Day

 

In Pathfinder VIP, we work together to generate insight, movement, and next steps in the journey of your life. This day is powerful, and enjoyable! You’ll be guided to think through questions like:

  • What do I truly want?
  • What’s getting in the way of me making new choices and taking action, and importantly how do I move beyond these things?
  • Am I going to do X or Y? (if you have a big decision to make)
  • What really needs my attention?

Then, with my input, you can start to form a high-level plan for the key area you want to address. I know that carving out one day together is not going to be easy for you to do because you’re busy, but as much as possible we’re going to get offline, so that you have the headspace to think about things in a way that allows you to make the long-term decisions.

Pathfinder is a space where you can be you, gain fresh perspective, explore possibilities, get clear, make a decision, choose a direction, and know, at least at a high level, what you need to do to move forward. You’ll leave the day with a list of specific actions, and schedule at least one in your diary.

I did the VIP Day with Amanda at a time of life and career transition. It felt to me like the equivalent of a year’s coaching in one day. I was able to work at a much deeper level than I have previously been able to with weekly or monthly coaching, and it cut through any procrastination or uncertainty. I was astonished by the clarity, insight and resolution that I was able to arrive at on the day, and in the time that followed.

Amanda is an extraordinarily skilled coach, experienced facilitator and guide. Her compassion, humour and practicality made it possible for me to make decisions about new directions with confidence and ease.

What Makes Pathfinder VIP Stand Out?

 
Pathfinder VIP is a whole experience. The conversations you have with Amanda are both spacious and structured, designed to get to the heart of the matter and mobilise you into a path of forward motion.

After our time together, you’re going to go away, finally, with some clarity. We’ve held the craziness at bay for a day, and given you the space you need. You’ve got the insight you’ve been struggling to get for months, if not years. You know what you want to do next. Perhaps you’ve made a big decision, or at least now know the key thing that’s going to really change your life for the better, whether at work or at home. You’ll also have some simple actions you can do over the next couple of weeks that are going to start to make that a reality.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you, Amanda, for the powerful Pathfinder Day that we spent together. It felt very bespoke and I appreciated how you tailored it to me personally. I valued your insightful guidance. It allowed me to home in on the things that inspire and motivate me in a way I could never have done alone.

You posed the challenging, compassionate questions that I needed to be asked, and then helped me come up with actions that have already started to make a difference to my life. This has included getting back in touch with my creativity with daily writing sessions—and I am excited about where that will lead.

It was a profound and joyful day.

About Me

A former chartered accountant and mergers & acquisitions advisor at KPMG, I know the pressures of the business world, and the difficulty of creating space for long term thinking and making significant change rather than fighting fires. Retraining as a coach in 2002 was a turning point, and freed me up to live and work more on-purpose. I now specialise in helping senior female professionals who are at a threshold, deepen in their thinking, connect with their whole self, get clear what they really want now, and take actions that bring fulfilment.

I’ve worked in a wide range of industry sectors, including Accenture, Barclays, Civil Service, Grant Thornton, GSK, Harrods, JP Morgan, Norton Rose Fulbright and O2, facilitating 1000s of change and leadership workshops, and coaching 100s of professionals privately, or through their organisations.

To serve my clients with the presence, skills, and tools needed for transformation, I’ve invested more than 20 years, and 10s of 1000s of pounds in continuing professional and personal development. I’ve also written many published articles about flourishing through change and spoken at several professional womens’ networks.

Here’s How Some Women Have Benefited From Working 1:1 With Me

Her coaching came at a time of significant change in my life and her holistic approach to supporting individuals enabled us to have broad and powerful conversations identifying patterns and commonalities across all aspects of my life and career. Her sessions gave me fresh thinking and inspiration for the future whilst being grounded in building a strong understanding of my personal leadership strengths and how to maximise their impact. I would recommend her wholeheartedly.

Jill Long

Director of Finance & Strategic Performance, Teenage Cancer Trust

I worked with Amanda over a period of six months and in that time she helped me not just identify my strengths and how I used them but most importantly she helped me really believe in myself and my strengths. Amanda got me to dig deep and explore actions I had taken and actions I was planning to take. By getting me to look at things from lots of different angles, I got to know myself and have much more confidence in myself as a result. This ground work has given me the springboard I needed to take charge of my career and move forward with purpose.

Harriet Avison

Head of UK Finance Risk Office, Capital One

My coaching experience with Amanda was incredibly liberating. I gained clarity and insight into what was important to me and revolutionised the way I spend my time and energy both at work and at home. I am very grateful for this as it has helped me become a happier, more integrated, less stressed person. I learned decision making tools which I still refer to today, built confidence to navigate the situation I was facing, spoke up in a difficult interaction, managed my boundaries and much more. Amanda also helped me to create a vision for my life and my future which was very exciting and I continue to be amazed at how that unfolds even today.

Got Concerns?

“I’m too busy to spend a day focussing on this.”

If you’re thinking this, consider what’s going to happen over time if nothing changes for you? If you continue as you are, where will you be in 6 months, a year, five years? What will the impact of this be on you, your loved ones, your clients/team/business, the world at large? If you draw a blank on these questions, or they alarm you, Pathfinder VIP is the place to explore that. Often we move so fast that we fall into the trap of being busy using our precious energy on activities that don’t really matter to us, or even worse, on activities that drain us because we’re done with them. Ultimately this can lead to us being unwell, burnt out and miserable. At some level we forget that our time belongs to us. Daring to participate in Pathfinder VIP is the first step to claiming time as your own.

“I should be able to sort this out myself.”

As a capable, professional woman who is used to dealing with difficult issues and moving forward decisively you may be thinking this. The place you’ve reached now though is different to other challenges and choices you’ve faced. This place brings with it an invitation to go deeper and create a future that offers you the next level of fulfilment on your path. At some level you know you need dedicated time, and a new approach to healthily move through the uncertainty you’re feeling and respond to what’s calling you. Getting the right professional expertise to support you is a game changer. You don’t have to do this on your own.

“Is this really worth spending money on?”

Pathfinder VIP is not cheap. (I’ll explain the pricing when we talk). What I’d encourage you to do is compare the investment to the difference it could make to your fulfilment, your health and wellbeing, your relationships, your career, your sense of purpose, whatever it is that you are most keen to work on. What is that difference worth to you? You might spend £2,000 on a holiday, and while that’s really important, sometimes we are more reluctant to spend £2,000 on our own development and quality of life, and on something that can make a shift not just in the short term but quite possibly for many years to come. Making a profound decision about your life, or your work, can have a knock on impact for five to ten years or more, for you, those around you, the world.

“I’d love to do this but I can’t do it in person.”

Let’s have a conversation and see what we can work out.

There are definitely times in life when you reach a crossroads and things can go either way.  Redundancy can be devastating and frightening but, with the right support, can also be liberating and exciting.  I had never thought of using a coach but then I met Amanda and with her help I worked out what success meant for me and what I really wanted to achieve for the future.  I was able to turn redundancy into a brave new start and 18 months down the line I'm still thankful that I took some time get a new perspective and make the right choices for me.

Ruth Carr

Marketing Consultant, Freelance

I found a deep sense of confidence that I have been missing for some time. I feel energised and have some new tools to utilise and reflect on that will help me to stay in this incredibly positive place. I think it is a monumental achievement for Amanda to help me to get to that point during a global pandemic and unprecedented uncertainty in my life and the world around me. It has resulted in one of the best transitions to a new role I have ever had.

Tracy Isacke

Head of Vendor Relationships, Silicon Valley Bank

Amanda was hired to be my expatriation coach after my relocation from Canada to the UK. Amanda has expert knowledge of the subject material and was able to draw upon her own personal expat experience. Amanda listened to me and put together a customised program that really got to the heart of my expatriation concerns. Our sessions were very focused and quickly our coaching moved beyond coping with the move into change management and creating a life plan.

Your joy and fulfilment matter. Those around you, and the world, benefit greatly when you’re at your best and on your path, so get in touch now. 

Working with Amanda gave me a much better insight into my core values, motivators and behaviours. She provided tools to help me structure my thinking to define and create an exciting new role for myself within our business.  

Amanda Blacklock

Global Marketing Director, GSK

I went to Amanda for executive coaching when I was taking on a new role. The reason that I chose Amanda is because of her excellent grasp of both the "hard" side of business (finance, etc) and the "soft" side (people, emotions, etc).
