How does Coach Dave work?
Dave's coaching has an honest style, straight up and to the point. Dave asks the tough questions and keeps you on task. He has a keen, sensitive attitude towards an open honesty from clients. He expects clients to speak their truth. Dave has a very spontaneous, supportive and genuine desire to give of his best at all times when coaching. Dave is gifted with a very fine tuned intuitive nature, which helps delve into the essence of concerns, with positive direct questioning. The range of communication skills at Dave's finger tips is varied and constantly growing. Dave is always willing to share and facilitate this knowledge to others with a range of courses and educational events. Empowering clients by improving their skills is an ethical goal of Life Coaching. Dave's task during coaching sessions is to maintain a challenging atmosphere for clients so that their created vision for their future is realised. Dave has been successful at all that he has done, this reflects in his effort and approach to Life Coaching.
At all times the client and the Life Coach are Co-Creating and therefore embrace change at every step of their journey. Every client comes with a varied range of personal knowledge, life skills and personal resources. These resources, skills and knowledge are acknowledged first and foremost, then enhanced with empowering new knowledge gained from the Life Coaching sessions. All clients succeed at their own level and time frames by taking personal responsibility for their decisions.
What does Dave do when he is not Life Coaching?

Being involved in the community as a helper at many functions and on several committees. Pleasurable pastimes are walking in the bush, growing weeds and looking after the animals on the property. He enjoys playing classical guitar and having a good old fashion sing-a-long by a large open fire on a full moon lit evening.
