Extensive business support

Lyndsey has been a truly inspirational coach, helping me think about where I want to take my business.

Lyndsey has become my “go to” person when I need to move my business along different paths. She has so much knowledge to share and does it with a welcoming and professional manner.

Lyndsey has helped me with goal setting, putting together my ‘elevator pitch’, how to market my business, blogging and gaining business confidence.

So, if you are stuck with where to take your business or just want to update your business skills, I can thoroughly recommend Lyndsey at Heads-Up Coaching.

Time management and productivity workshop 

Lyndsey delivered an excellent Time Management and Productivity Workshop for us.

It really brought the team together, helped them come up with action plans and up-skilled them.

 This will have a very positive outcome for the team.

Business direction and planning

I have had some sessions with Lyndsey to build on my business and get a clearer idea about which direction I wanted to go.

Speaking every week has made me accountable and has definitely pushed things forward quicker than if I had been doing this alone.

Coaching with Lyndsey has been such a positive experience for me and I would encourage anyone who is setting up their own business, or who might be in the future, to have some sessions with Lyndsey.

I am looking forward to my further sessions with Lyndsey and using her support and guidance to help continue to grow my business.

Improving time management 

Lyndsey’s support has been invaluable to us, especially in these unprecedented coronavirus times when we’re having to move our business 100% online.

We’ve now restructured our weekly schedule to ring-fence deep focus and uninterrupted flow time, which has really helped us prioritise our ‘everyday busy’ and be more productive.

Our improved time management means we’re consistently giving our key concentration time and energy to moving our business forward.

We can’t recommend Lyndsey highly enough.

Coaching Skills workshop

Lyndsey offered a Coaching Skills workshop to managers at VSO, who recently trained in the essentials of line management. This helped our managers refresh their knowledge about coaching, focus on the structure of a successful coaching conversation and practise their skills.

The atmosphere Lyndsey created immediately helped people to open up, share and experiment.

I’m personally grateful to Lyndsey for this session, where our managers from around the world could come together again, build on their learning and support one another.

I feel confident that my colleagues will be trying out new approaches within their work environment and continue building their confidence in coaching their team members.

Branding and business development for a start-up business

I was totally in a muddle about all my ideas and services but Lyndsey seemed to effortlessly draw my strengths out.

I found Lyndsey very supportive and her coaching skills were excellent. I love her friendly and professional manner.

It’s so great to have a cheerleader and support when you’re first starting up as it can be really overwhelming but Lyndsey takes all that away.

I left with focus, clarity and felt really empowered! Thank you for your time, patience and support!

Time management and productivity workshop

“I commissioned Lyndsey to deliver a practical workshop on ‘How to Manage Your Time Effectively’ as part of our entrepreneurship support service workshop programme.

I asked Lyndsey to share a range of easy-to-apply tools for our students, graduates and university staff.

Her engaging workshop was very informative – packed with insightful techniques for our service users to apply in their studies and professional working lives.

 People left the workshop feeling inspired to test out the new time management tools Lyndsey presented.

If you are looking for an expert in effective time management, Lyndsey is the person you are looking for!”

Marketing support for business growth

Brilliant in-depth sessions that allowed me better insight of my business as a whole – who my target clients are, which social media platforms work for me and how to create a workable marketing schedule.

Taking the time to get to know me and my business, Lyndsey came up with some great ideas that got me to think outside the box. These ideas will all greatly benefit how I work and how to move forward, giving me the confidence boost, focus and direction I need.

The accountability sessions have been invaluable to me to set all my new ideas in motion.

Improving self-confidence

The coaching sessions with Lyndsey have provided some concrete techniques that will help me to respond to doubts about my confidence in future, and have helped me to understand what self-confidence means and feels like for me.

More fundamentally, the sessions have helped me understand how I can help myself to genuinely feel confident, rather than just act confident.

Lyndsey put me at ease throughout the sessions, and provided a relaxed environment in which I was able to talk and think openly about why I felt my self-confidence was limited, and what I could do to improve it.

I felt that Lyndsey was able to draw on a wide knowledge to select techniques and approaches that were relevant to the issues that I wanted help with, and which were compatible with my own personality and approach.

Marketing strategy and time management support for a new social enterprise

I asked Lyndsey to help me with my new business as I felt very overwhelmed with the amount to do and little time to do it in. She recognised my problems straight away and helped me find straightforward solutions and ideas to work on.

She also helped me create a marketing strategy which has been so helpful.

I’ve come away with some excellent tools which I’m sure will be helpful for years to come.
