I recently had the pleasure of interviewing one of my clients, Alexa Banks-Lyon. I’m delighted to share the story of her coaching journey. What brought you to coaching? I had recently been promoted to a management position for the first time. I was faced with excitement, nerves and the prospect of having to manage former […]Read More
Gail, I can’t thank you enough for the time we have had together. You have helped me through some really tough times and always with such a calming approach. I know I said it so many times, but I really valued our time together. I knew that our sessions would always help me clear the noise and see the path ahead more clearly. Latterly you have helped me through setting up on my own, coaching as one small business owner to another and that has been just as valuable and appreciated.
Thanks so our work together I am now running my own business and have the extra time with the boys that I wanted so badly. It has been a bumpy road at times, but your coaching undoubtedly contributed to where I am now, and many of the conversations we have had and tools you have shared with me will stay with me for the future. They really do help give me the clarity that I need and value in my day to day life and work.
You are a calming voice of reason with a powerful message. You have changed my outlook on so many things and I’m so grateful.
“Challenging, interactive and enlightening – Gail took us on a journey to become more confident, effective and balanced leaders. In one day, she equipped us with the strategies and tactics needed to make the most of our personal lives and careers. Phenomenal!”
Following a promotion to a chief officer position at Fife Council I was afforded the opportunity to undertake some personal coaching delivered by Gail Logan from Firefly. I have to admit that initially I was very sceptical of the benefits of undertaking such an activity, however, how wrong was this view.
I had three sessions with Gail during which she took the time to listen to understand my issues. Gail’s methods and insight were tailored to our discussions and the output has changed my whole perspective on how I carry out my business.
This has allowed me, in both my professional and personal life, to review my thinking and to give me a deeper understanding and perspective.
I would highly recommend Gail and Firefly to anyone who wishes to take time to develop themselves to change their thinking and focus. It certainly worked for me and will benefit my employer going forward.
I had the tremendous honor of being coached by Gail recently and had a transformative experience. I recommend her highly to anyone who is looking to stretch your thinking and take on new and unexpected perspectives. In approx. an hour, Gail, co-created 4 POVs with me to try on and I was in control to select the one that served me the best and then had concrete actions to take to bring life to this new perspective. I love the basic premise that Gail holds that her clients are already resourceful, creative, and whole and we already have everything we need to create a life that we love. Gail is changing lives one conversation at a time and I definitely invite you to join in.
Since I started having sessions with Gail I have improved my self-awareness and learned how to maximise my potential in different situations. After a couple of months of coaching, I can say that it is a game changer. I highly recommend Gail as a coach: from day one she made me feel very comfortable and I could feel the benefits straight away. She is extremely aware and approachable and has techniques to expand your thought process enabling you to see the bigger picture and channel anything to a successful outcome. The way I approach situations has been enhanced by my learnings from these sessions and I feel like I have support from Gail along the whole process. I am very happy with how the coaching is going and encourage people to try it out.
Gail is a fantastic coach. She is a naturally warm and understanding person who always puts you at ease and enables you to be yourself and be honest. She’s also not afraid to challenge you and force you to bring the best out of yourself. Gail is a great reader of emotions and can always tell what you’re really thinking and feeling.
My coaching experience with Gail has been first class and very quickly she’s helped me overcome some of the mental hurdles that have always held me back. I’d thoroughly recommend her for anyone who feels they need some help getting the most out of life and finding out what will make them truly happy!
I have just completed a coaching journey with Gail, and I could not be happier. Not only does Gail provide you with a sense of security that you are comfortable to talk and engage on any subject, but she does so much more. From day one, I could tell that this was not just a project or assignment that Gail was going to complete, but that she is on this journey with me and that allowed me to open and express myself.
Looking back to where I was and the person I was at the start of this coaching experience, I think to myself, who was this person and why did I behave like this? The person I was then seems like it was not me, and the sense of accomplishment and growth that I have unlocked within myself because of Gail fills me with pride and determination!
Being new to coaching I was unsure what to expect, but could not be happier now. The only regret I have is that I did not start this earlier in life, thanks Gail for all your support, for challenging me, calling me out when needed, and of course the laughter!
I now have a better understanding and I have learnt so much about myself which I can use to help my clients in my business. Gail coached me to get on track and gain clarity with what I want to achieve.
I turned to Gail for Life Coaching, having worked with Gail at Adobe, and knowing her passion for helping people improve their lives. Gail’s a wonderful coach…strong active listening skills, inquisitive line of questioning, helping steer the conversation without moving into advice mode. Thoroughly recommend Gail to anyone who wants to take the step back and work through new opportunities and old challenges!
Thank you for running such a thought-provoking Values Workshop for BCSWomen, it was well received by our participants, and I’ve already seen some of them go away and evaluate what they’re doing and why.
I recently enjoyed a session with Gail and her manner and approach were great. She pushed me to really start to analyse why I make decisions and what motivates me. Given that I was unsure what I wanted to get from the coaching session this was a really positive outcome and I’d be happy to recommend her.
I met Gail at a networking event and was instantly drawn to her character and enthusiasm towards what she was doing. She was very kind to offer me a session and I gladly took her up on the offer. Gail was very professional and the session itself was very illuminating. She is very talented at making you think outside the box, and the one session with her opened up my eyes to insight about myself I had not realised. If you are looking for some guidance and help in where to take your future – I highly recommend Gail.
Gail provides a safe space in which to confront fears, limiting beliefs, and confusion that sabotage success. Through a compassionate and persistent focus on goals, she walks with her clients as a guide, allowing them to map their own personal journey to success. She values individuality and the belief that we can all be successful. That is clear in her coaching style.
I always look forward to my conversations with Gail. She always able to show a unique balance of careful listening with sharing her wealth of experience and ideas. She quickly points out the problem of the situation, helps me to think outside of the box and gives me helpful perspectives and questions to think about. She has guided me thru a challenging time, her great questions, insights helped me to focus on the advantages. Her encouragement helped a lot to learnt how to change my approach and adopt new ways. She has been a great a coach!
