Daryl’s one by one approach is captured in an old fable:
An old man was walking along the beach. In the distance he saw someone who seemed to be dancing along the waves. As he got closer, he saw a young man picking up starfish and tossing them back into the ocean.
“What are you doing?” The old man asked.
“The sun is coming up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them in they will die.”
“But young man, there are miles and miles of beach with starfish all along it. You can’t possibly make a difference.”
The young man bent down, picked up a starfish and threw it back past the breaking waves.
“It made a difference to that one.”
“Working with Daryl has been an incredibly insightful, helpful and inspiring journey for me. In each of our coaching sessions Daryl helped me to understand my strengths and worked with me to overcome challenges. A hugely beneficial investment of time, both personally and professionally.”
“As a personal coach, Daryl was able to uncover weaknesses and help turn them into strengths that could then be translated across the business bringing tangible results.”
“I have found coaching with Daryl to be extremely beneficial and more helpful than any professional course I have ever attended. He creates a very kind and supportive environment to critically analyse issues and come up with tangible new approaches and techniques. His support has helped me to grow as a senior leader and to be more effective in my role.”
“I have been fortunate to work with Daryl as a colleague but more recently as a trainer / coach. Through our sessions Daryl has helped me understand my strengths and identify areas for improvement. I have found him very knowledgeable and very engaging. I would very much recommend his services and will use him for my team going forward”
