John Mulvey is a well-respected business development consultant, life performance coach and author. His coaching has included, executives, business leaders, MP’s, and individuals wanting to improve their situations.
He’s a former president of The National Speaker’s Association Qld. Chapter, and as a professional speaker has shared many stories with disparate groups over the years in Australia, New Zealand, the UK and USA. This exposure has resulted in his being invited to many areas of business to work with groups as well as individuals.
Some of his client’s include: PwC, Rio Tinto, BHP Billiton, Dulux, The University of Queensland, The University of the Sunshine Coast, Royal Institution of Architects, VACC Insurance, Brisbane Airport Corporation, Virgin Blue, ANZ, Bendigo Bank, Bank of St. George, and numerous Queensland Government Departments. Individuals have come from all walks of life; young and not so young!
Coaching is something dear to his heart, having been in the British army as a Physical Training Instructor and coached soccer teams in the Far East in addition to subsequently running the Wilmslow Junior Football Club in the UK. He is a certified referee and level 2 soccer coach, although he doesn’t pursue those interests these days.
Life performance coaching requires an accreditation of course and John received qualification when this really took off in and around the year 2000.
This book is specifically about coaching and being coached. A recent presentation on this topic was touted as: ‘Crossing the Void: Coaching Skills for Work and Life.’
There is no doubt that life coaching is growing in popularity and in many areas replacing team and personal training. The difference as John sees it is down to the fact that one size doesn’t suit all and recognising individual requirements only comes about from asking quality questions to find where people are at and where they would like to be.
