Black Top Coaching was founded in 2020 by Paul Ward, a personal development coach with experience working with a variety of clients both in business and on a personal basis. Paul has an extensive background in management, both in-role and on an advisory basis, and has a no-nonsense approach to coaching.
You kind of know all these things but just don’t know where to start.
You no longer feel fully motivated or fulfilled in your current role/career;
Clarity of direction is missing in your life;
Your life/career goals are sketchy at best, or may not be there at all;
Your belief of what you can achieve is limited by your own barriers;
Getting started with your Personal Coaching journey begins with a conversation. From there we can tailor a program that suits you and your life. Typically, a personal coaching program will follow this process:
01 Initial contact – This will be a free 30-minute session either by phone, Zoom, or, if practical, in person. You will then be able to decide if Black Top Coaching is the right choice to make transformational change in your life.
02 First session – Your first session will normally involve the completion of a Motivational Map followed up with some questioning about where you are at? What led you here and where you want to be.
03 Following sessions – Based on the initial meetings, we can now develop a program just for you. To make positive change usually requires at least four sessions and the process can run for as long as you feel they need the support of a personal development coach.
The work of Black Top Coaching is based on Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Motivational Maps®. NLP techniques work to remove negative emotions from past events, clear up limiting beliefs and decisions we have made about ourselves, and align individuals at the unconscious level towards their goal. The net result is a supercharged individual with no fear, 100% confidence, and the ability to go out and achieve whatever they desire. Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) explains the relationship between how we think (Neuro), how we communicate both verbally and non verbally (linguistic) and our patterns of behaviour and emotions (programmes).
Motivational Maps® is a cutting edge tool used to map an area crucial to performance in both the workplace and in life; motivation. The Motivational Map® is an online diagnostic tool that provides an accurate ten-page report which is used to help people understand their own individual Internal Motivational Drivers. From this report, we know what they really need from their work to be happy and fulfilled. Understanding exactly what motivates individuals in an organisation can be used to magnificent effect.
“Paul has had a major impact on my life both personally and professionally. Through our work together I have removed the obstacles holding me back and have seen a real difference in my life. Highly recommended.”
“We all need someone outside looking in at our situation now and again; Paul with his expertise and insight in identifying the positive and negative is both encouraging and inspirational. I have no hesitation in recommending Pauls’s services to employers and employees.”
“Thank you Paul for changing my life. Paul’s coaching has enabled me to discover my life goal, and given me the power and drive to go for it!”
“Prior to taking the Motivational Maps (MM) assessment, I had a general idea of what my motivators were. However, MM not only validated my motivators but gave me an in-depth understanding of them and suggested strategies on how to maintain or enhance my motivators. All of these were detailed in the comprehensive report. It took me less than 10 minutes to complete the questionnaire and the best part is that it can be done anywhere and at any time!”
“With Paul’s coaching, I’ve made such progress in a short space of time, I’m unrecognisable in a brilliant way. I’m now able to see things and situations with absolute clarity.”
“Paul has a great sense of humour and a genuine interest in getting the best out of his students. I would happily recommend Paul to anyone looking to qualify as an NLP Practitioner.”
