FJ has a long history with the Insurance market and was previously head of Recruitment for Lloyd's of London before retraining and making a career for herself as an Executive coach and latterly as an Empowerment coach (this was a new term to me too) FJ is someone I have known a very long time, she is funny, engaging and very direct which is a huge part of her appeal as a coach! In this episode, I wanted to tackle what an Executive coach is, what they do and who should have one? We covered much more than that. We talked about:- FJ's first-hand experience of getting a coach whilst at Lloyd's of London - What FJ felt she gained from having a coach that inspired her to retrain as a coach - How to find the right coach- The stigma attached to coaching - Why everyone should have a coach and how we should now view coaching as something just for senior executives - When is the right time to get a coach? (JFDI - you will learn about this acronym by watching)- The 5 Gremlins everyone has that coaches work on- Graduate experience of insurance- Who is coaching for and who it isn't for - What makes a good recruitment process - The most common flaws in internal recruitment function- The importance of empowerment and much, much more.This was a great podcast and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm sure you will too. To find out more about FJ please contact her on Linkedin.
