Observations from the Quarterdeck (COMING SOON)



David’s current work is on a book titled: “Observations from the Quarterdeck, the Grand Adventure of Business.” Due for release in 2022.

One day as I was reflecting on growing my business and the ways in which I could better help my clients achieve their goals, I glanced over to the Blue Nose model I have in my lounge room and thought of the original vessel.

How many storms had she survived? How many crews had she carried over the years? How much happiness had been enjoyed aboard? How much sadness and tragedy had she endured?

Was it a representation of business ownership – absolutely.

If the Blue Nose’s Master and Crew had not adhered to the principles and strengths of nautical custom then destruction would have been a very real alternative. So too with business, and the more I thought about it, the more potent were the analogies and I knew that this was something that most business owners could identify with.

Coaching has been great. I’ve learned more about myself and how to interact with people, being held accountable. Strategies that I thought I had weren’t actually strategies at all.

David had a great approach to the coaching. While he followed a broad structure he was also happy to be led by what I felt would be most beneficial. He also challenged me to think deeply about what direction I wanted to take in my career so his assistance could better align and was targeted towards achieving that objective.
