From resolutions to revolutions

Martin Bennett of MJB Coaching

Achieving your business and personal goals; overcoming procrastination; the value of coaching; addressing automation; fairness in the workplace; neighbourliness; making Sheffield fairer and the cumulative power of small actions; and the Japanese word for “chit chat.”

It’s all in my latest Business Live radio show, broadcast on Sheffield Live on Friday 20 January. Listen to the podcast below.

This week’s guests are “difference Engineer” Jonny Douglas and coach Martin Bennett.

What does a business coach do, how do they really make a difference for their clients, and what skills and experience does a good coach have?

Martin Bennett of MJB Coaching joined me, not only to discuss the above but also the process of launching his own business after a corporate career, world travel, and (in his own words) a “prolonged period of procrastination.” Martin also offered tips on sticking to and meeting your objectives. There’s plenty to learn from Martin’s story – have a listen.

Jonny Douglas returned to the show –it’s always great to welcome Jonny to the studio. Well known for his involvement with PechaKucha Sheffield, Sheffield SOUP (next is 22 Feb, apply now), and many other initiatives Jonny, discussed his own podcasts and Our Fair City (and fairness in work) – with fascinating insights and commentary about automation, glass floors and ceilings, and the future of work in the age of artificial intelligence and algorithms.
