Nick Smith MSc set up The Achievement Coach in 2009 after a period of intensive study and practical experience to gain greater insight and understanding of this specialist field.
Passionate about the benefits of coaching, Nick believes individuals have the power to achieve great things with the right motivation and self-belief. Constantly exploring new methodologies he is also an accredited practitioner of the Emotional Capital Report (ECR), a worldwide programme that recognises emotional intelligence as a vital element in business and leadership development.
In his own life, Nick aims to achieve a good work/life balance, something to which many of his clients also aspire. He spends quality time with his family, enjoys Nordic Walking and as a member of Toastmasters International continues to develop his skills as a public speaker.
He particularly enjoys his voluntary role as a business mentor with the Prince’s Trust, an organisation dedicated to helping vulnerable young people move into work, education and training.
Nick’s belief that we are all unique, has ensured he has the right tools and knowledge to help every person he works with to achieve what they want. Nick has been enthusiastically studying, researching and practicing Mind Chi and is amazed at the personal results of everyone he has worked with, using Mind Chi. ‘My own ongoing experience with Mind Chi is one of wonderment at the way I now perceive what is possible, my improved mental energy and the gratitude with which I now enjoy every day of my life.’ To learn more about Nick go to: www.theachievementcoach.co.uk
Ken says: ‘I am passionate about helping people grow and develop in order to release their full potential. I will be acting as a Mind Chi Mentor within a local authority / multi-agency partnership board setting. I also intend to promote and encourage other organizations to take up the opportunity to become Mind Chi Mentors and to develop a Cheshire / Merseyside Mind Chi Network to share best practice and provide ongoing support.
