Coronavirus (COVID-19)

 Empower your management team with skills and support to manage change on an unprecedented scale.

Build in extra capacity now to keep your workforce connected and self-motivated working at home, and as we face the future.

Becoming resilient

Why become more resilient? Whatever you are doing and wherever you are headed, resilience is what will support you on that journey, and the inevitable setbacks along the way.

Maybe you’re a graphic designer, digital nomad, grey nomad, a blogger, expat, artist, managing director or CEO… or you want to be. Whatever your calling, The Life Creative resilience coaching shares the strategies science proves helps.

‘Life doesn’t get easier or more forgiving, we get stronger and more resilient.’ Steve Maraboli

Develop and improve your ability to manage uncertainty and change. 

COVID-19 is challenging and changing the way we live and work in rapid and unprecedented ways. Who do you want to be in this crisis? How do you want to show up?    Now more than ever  your ability to lead and motivate others, stay connected, handle stress and  demonstrate optimism is called for. 


Why work with The Life Creative during coronavirus?

Without question, your staff are your best asset. The businesses that put in the extra mile now to resource their workforces are the ones who will come out of this crisis stronger. Don’t wait for evidence of underperformance or mental health issues to ramp up support for your leadership teams.

Is coaching a good fit?

Coaching is present and future focussed and ideally positioned to resource individuals and teams to adapt. During COVID-19 The Life Creative is supporting leadership teams in the public and private sector successfully pivot their workforce to remote working. Managers and in particular frontline managers provided with individual coaching weekly are more likely to master the mindsets and behaviours for stress management and effective performance, remain optimistic and foster team connection.

What is your coaching approach?

The Life Creative uses evidenced-based strategies from neuroscience, emotional intelligence and positive psychology to support your wellbeing .

Is change really possible?

Yes. The first step is to recognise when you need more support and to reach out for it. The Life Creative is a great place to start.

Resilience can improve leadership.

Increased resilience can improve your emotional intelligence and your ability to work collaboratively and communicate with others.  It can give you more confidence in your talents and in an increasingly conmplex world, more grit to manage future challenges and change.

Resilience can lessen stress.

Scientific studies show that resilient people sleep better and have more energy and motivation. They are better at self-regulation and more able to choose behaviour that is congruent with their goals.

Why mindfulness is key.

If we are not focussed on something we fixate on ourselves and our thinking repeats the old stories over and over. Mindfulness meditation trips this up. We start to recognise that our thoughts are just thoughts. They are not the truth. The gift of mindfulness is the choice this gives us to tell a different story and create a different life- a life that we love.

“An amazing ally! Kathryn’s ability to challenge my thinking and hold me to account about what I really wanted led me to put in for and win a role I didn’t even consider before leadership coaching.”


Senior sales manager

“Kathryn was an inspiration to me after my cancer treatment. I never thought I’d say it but although my old life is gone, my new one is much happier! Her coaching gave me new ways to think about my challenges post-cancer that helped enormously. Highly recommended, and she really lives her work. Thank you again.”
