This humble tool is one of the most powerful tools I use in my business, and that I use with clients. Because unless you can see your time laid out in front of you, you can’t make realistic plans, set achievable goals or get everyone aligned about what needs to be done, and by when.

I use this tool with my executive coaching clients to help them plan out an ideal week, and understand what’s achievable with their time. I use it with my content marketing clients to map out content plans, deadlines and publishing dates. I use it with my business clients to help them and their team see what needs to be done, and when by so they all get on the same page, literally. Read more…

Courage journal prompts

In this year’s Days of Possible Diary, I created a provocation in the opening pages that prompted kin to ponder when they have chosen courage in their lives. As we’re nearly halfway through the year, I’m revisiting the provocations. Remembering times in my life when I have been courageous before (even in the tiniest of ways), helps me keeping being courageous when I’m in the presence of doubt, fear and self-criticism. Because the thing about courage is that it isn’t comfortable. It’s an act of vulnerability. There is no act of courage that doesn’t involve the risk, uncertainty and emotional exposure of vulnerability. Read more…

I once heard the saying ‘no plan survives its impact with reality.’ And nothing could be truer when you’re taking a leap. For all the plans you might make (and I’m a BIG advocate of plans), you will get thrown curveballs. But perhaps a Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis is one of the least you might expect. Read more…

The Leap Stories Fiona Killackey Header

If I asked you to write about what a typical day a year from now would look like, what would you write? Would you happily scribe more of the same as what you’re doing now? Or would you like it to be different?  How would you spend your day? Who would you spend it with? What would you be doing? How would you be feeling? It was being asked these questions and writing down her answers that prompted Fiona Killackey to start planning her corporate escape to start her fantastic coaching and consulting business, My Daily Business Coach.

As part of the plan, she wrote down the names of 62 people she could reach out to build a client pipeline. Before she lept she had four months of work lined up, helping ease the fear of leaving a corporate salary behind. She leveraged her existing knowledge and connections to build a new way forward.
