Hi, Clay here. I’m a personal growth coach and trainer. I believe each of us can do great things in this world if we choose to lean into the work we were called here to do and stay true to that path. My path is helping people through change and realizing their true potential. The Coach’s Notes is where I explore how we can live better, more fulfilled, and joyful lives. I blog about self-awareness, emotional intelligence, mindset, self-knowledge, spirituality, and connection, among other things. Have a little look around the site. If you like what you see, then subscribe to the blog so you don’t miss a post.

I’ve been in the learning, development, and coaching game for 22 years working with large corporate companies like Merrill Lynch, HSBC, SKY TV, Homeserve, Natwest, Prudential, Llyods TSB, British Telecom, among others. I’ve also worked with non-corporates like the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, the Rail Safety Standards Board, and Raleigh International, as well as governing bodies like the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority, Sutton County Council, and the Royal Borough of Kingston.

The common denominator between all of these companies is people, which is where the heart of my passion lies – helping people and teams realize their full potential by connecting with their best self which in turn helps them make better decisions, be more productive, and achieve greater success in life and in business.

I also like to work with business owners and entrepreneurs – people who are success-oriented, have big dreams, and the WILL to achieve them. I bring a wealth of experience to the table having trained and coached thousands of people over the years. I am an excellent accountability partner (a trait honed as an infantry officer in the U.S. Army).

If you feel I can help you or your business or both, schedule a call with me to see if we are the right fit for each other.

Further Insights

Here’s a little insight into my personality. In my coaching practice, I use a number of psychometric tools to help my clients discover who they truly are in terms of the traits that constitute their core drivers. I also use these tools with teams to help them understand self, understand others, and then develop strategies to adapt and connect with each other.
