Review of MJB Coaching  by mike priestley

We contacted Martin to help our company set up contracts and policies when setting on new employees when the company hit a growth spurt due to successfully winning new business.

Having outsourced the HR requirements for new and existing employees, this enabled FWD to restructure whilst coping with increased workloads and allowed the directors to concentrate on the company and project work to keep service levels high in order to retain the business won.

We were given solid advice throughout the restructure which helped the process to run smoothly. Martin also assisted us with difficult consultation meetings, and was a great sounding board.

I would strongly recommend using MJB Coaching to handle the HR side of your company to allow you to concentrate and focus on your business and clients to secure contracts at a time of growth. Having an expert in this field highlighted potential flaws within our existing contracts and also brought FWD up to speed with all our employment policies at the same time.

Once the restructure was complete, we continued working with Martin to assist us in staff development and introduced performance management in our staff appraisals where Martin sat in and advised on appropriate measures to take.

We also introduced coaching for our staff, delivered by Martin, to help individuals develop within the business. This has been a great success. Martin identifies quickly what your challenges are as a business and what you want to achieve. He then works with employees to steer them towards a company focused approach. It has been useful to have a fresh perspective which identifies where staff require more proactive management and development.

I found Martin on Bark. He was very quick to respond and we very soon set up a block of sessions.
He is very good at helping to guide me through how to develop my love of cartooning into a business; ideal for where I am at this stage of my working life.
We have met face to face as well as using Skype and both these methods have worked well.
Martin has taught me a lot about structuring my day, about building up self confidence and in using the internet.
He was so useful at a time when working out a path on my own would have been difficult . It was good to have someone to report to and to share ideas with.

I chose life coaching at a time where I wanted to leave my job as a manager in order to pursue a more rewarding career in a different sector. Although I had successfully moved into a temporary transitional position, I was facing a confusing array of options and opportunities. I felt I needed help in clarifying my own thoughts to make the most of the opportunity I'd created. I also needed support in assessing the suitability of various ideas.

Initially, Martin helped me to shortlist areas of interest by drilling down to the aspects of work I find appealing, cross-referenced with a more detailed analysis of my skills and experience. From there, I was able to create a shortlist of careers and a clear action plan for gaining the requirements and becoming a more valid candidate. I was challenged when I reverted to old patterns of thought, which helped me to stay on track at times.

I also found managing my own workload difficult, as I was balancing various responsibilities in my professional and personal life. As well as a much-needed sympathetic ear, Martin provided clarity and assisted me in prioritising and planning to avoid feelings of being overwhelmed.

I was also assisted in understanding how to make my CV an effective sales document, adapted for different roles. This was invaluable in re-branding my experience to transfer my skills to different person specifications in my desired sector.

As a result of my coaching sessions, I am now confident in my choice to change careers and have significantly increased my employability. I have been offered various positions, and have developed a clearer way of assessing pros and cons of different scenarios, as well as challenging my own assumptions. Having the opportunity to discuss ideas with someone impartial and focused allowed me to explore options in a much more valuable and conclusive way.

Martin is fully engaged and supportive, whilst also challenging and moving the sessions forward in a positive and progressive way. He adapted sessions, follow ups and communication to suit my needs and was very clearly determined to see me reach my goals.

I would recommend MJB to anyone wanting to strategise about any aspect of their life and make positive steps forward.

Martin really goes that extra mile with his clients, not only to glean an in depth picture of what you want to achieve in your future, but also employs various 'detective work' strategies to helpfully tap into other areas that might be holding you back. He listens and notices every detail. He works with this information to bring out the best in you, and helps you to work out a tailored plan to suit your individual needs.

Its an eye-opening experience, I recommend it to everyone at least once in their career to have a life coach, and working with Martin on a journey of discovery made that process a pleasure.

You will end up in a very different place than when you started, and all for the better! Wish Id done it years ago! Highly recommended.

The coaching I received from MJB was astounding. Such direction, guidance and honestly towards the questions I had helped me to find the direction I needed. Even though I have moved on now I still visit MJB regularly because of the caring and forward thinking attitude he delivers.

My life was at a crossroads. Being in my late 50s I was at a stage when I wanted to pursue a dream. I've always enjoyed cartooning and I wanted to see what I can achieve with this.
I contacted Martin who responded very quickly. We have had 12 sessions; some were done by Skype and some face to face; either in Sheffield or in my home (I live fairly near Sheffield).
Martin has helped me to look at how I can structure my day. I've learnt a lot about how to use the internet. He has helped to keep me focussed on my dream.
Also he has looked at my life in general, such as weight loss. I have now lost over half a stone from his suggestion.
He has also looked at the role my subconscious plays in my life, especially being in a creative business.
Although my current block of sessions has come to a natural end, I am looking at booking more sessions with Martin later on in the year for the next stage in my growth.

I would recommend life-coaching to anyone wanting to strategise about any aspect of their life and make positive steps forward.

Having the opportunity to discuss ideas with someone impartial and focused allowed me to explore options in a much more valuable and conclusive way. Help with applications and my CV allowed me to market my skills and experience much more effectively.

A brilliant experience.

I was struggling with a new move to a new job. I wasn't sure if this was the right move. after a few sessions at MJB, I felt empowered within myself to seek the goals that best suited my needs. A highly recommended coaching service which will bring your needs to the forefront of your decision making and ultimately set you on the right path for success.

Martin undertook a very useful and important piece of work for our organisation (Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust) in terms of coaching/mentoring a number of Deputy Managers within the Service. This was undertaken in a very timely manner and helped address a number of important issues identified by the organisation and these members of staff.

For a number of months before I started my work with Martin I had been stuck in a rut, unable to move forward with my plans. His sessions gave me the clarity I needed to plan the way forward and start to move toward the life I want for myself.
