Solace Coaching

About Us

Solace Coaching was founded in 2015 by Paul Ward, a personal development coach with experience working with a variety of clients both in business and on a personal basis. Paul has an extensive background in management, both in-role and on an advisory basis. Having seen a recurring theme of disgruntled staff dissatisfied with managers and the detrimental impacts that had on businesses, Paul created Solace Coaching with a focus on improving performance in business.

Paul has a wide experience in management, having spent his career working at senior positions within some of the country’s biggest retailers including Argos, B&M and Poundland. Paul has led projects on improving customer service, introduced coaching into retail management and supported the transition of management within retail to that based on coaching, removing limits on the traditional model. In other work, Paul has worked within the charity and non-profit sector where he was responsible for staff satisfaction at all levels from those who volunteer within retail environments, to chief executives and directors.

As a result, Paul has been able to take this experience and combine it with his training to develop unique solutions to common problems faced by business owners and managers. Paul focuses on people within the business, helping them to overcome barriers that stand in the way of their own personal development, and the development of their business. Through the use of NLP and Motivational Maps®, Solace Coaching is able to develop a complete understanding of any hurdle, and work honestly with individuals and businesses to overcome these issues. Often, those within the business can be afraid to speak truth to power which can be highly detrimental. Not with Solace Coaching. We’ll provide reliable, non-biased reports which show exactly where you can improve to achieve that which you want to achieve.

Tools we use

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)

The work of Solace Coaching is based on Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Motivational Maps®. NLP techniques work to remove negative emotion from past events, clear up limiting beliefs and decisions we have made about ourselves, and align individuals at the unconscious level towards their goal. The net result is a supercharged individual with no fear, 100% confidence and with the ability to go out and achieve whatever they desire. Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) explains the relationship between how we think (Neuro), how we communicate both verbally and non verbally (linguistic) and our patterns of behaviour and emotions (programmes).

Motivational Maps®

Motivational Maps® is a cutting edge tool used to map an area crucial to performance in both the workplace and in life; motivation. The Motivational Map® is an online diagnostic tool that provides an accurate ten-page report which is used to help people understand their own individual Internal Motivational Drivers. From this report we know what they really need from their work to be happy and fulfilled. Understanding exactly what motivates individuals in an organisation can be used to magnificent effect.

“My goal is to stretch and develop you so growth for you and your business is inevitable.”
