Amanda Alexander is an award-winning Professional Certified Coach with a global reputation focused on developing emotionally intelligent and resilient leaders and developing sustainable and fulfilling work-life integration. She transitioned from IT Project Management to Coaching in 2003. 


 From her original niche supporting working parents Amanda has been featured many times in the media, including broadsheets such as The Times, Sunday Times, Sunday Telegraph and The Independent. She was even hailed as one of the UK’s “Top Life Coaches” by the Daily Mail  - a dubious honour ;)!

 Her corporate clients include Allianz, BBC, Sage Software, Bank of Scotland, Herbert Smith, Welsh Water, Co-operative Bank, Urenco (BNFL), ICAEW, Citibank, London School of Economics and HSBC. 
 
 
Amanda is a technophile (except when it goes wrong) and has embraced the world of online teaching as an early adopter:  In 2007, she took an in-depth course on creating online training courses and multimedia membership sites.  In 2008, she launched her first virtual group coaching programme and in March 2009, she was invited to become a resident expert on Citrix’s newly formed “Workshifting” team.  Workshifting was a term Citrix coined as an updated definition for “telecommuting” and “remote working”, incorporating Citrix technology, including their GoToWebinar and GoToMeeting platforms. 

This led to Amanda gaining expertise in using webinar technology and  she has designed, marketed and facilitated online events and virtual learning environments for both small groups and large audiences of 200+. She has also created several of her own online learning programmes and a membership site, and has taught many coaches to do the same.

Full Practice 101

You LOVE coaching. You know you can make a difference. You just don’t know how to get momentum with getting the bloomin’ clients! You have picked up loads of ideas on how to build your practice, but you’re struck by analysis paralysis..or you’ve fluttered from one thing to another and nothing has worked. You probably haven’t had many (paying) clients yet . You might not have even had a single one (shhhh.. I won’t tell!) It’s probably been a bit patchy up to now and your confidence may have taken a knock You don’t have anywhere near as much time as you'd like to spend on building your practice. You are juggling a family, a home, a day job and all the rest of it. You just wish you could slow everything down so you could do all those good things you've been told you should be doing. You might be getting the odd comment from a well-meaning (or possibly well-annoying) spouse/partner such as “It’s a hobby rather than a business, isn’t it?” Quite frankly, you may be wondering whether you should just pack it all in :( You need someone who has “been there done that” to show you how to do it , how to get the clients and grow your coaching practice (a real woman, a real coach who GETS you, rather than a seasoned marketeer) You need SIMPLICITY . Baby steps, little shifts, a set of step by step chunked down actions that you can follow. You need CONFIDENCE. You need SUPPORT for when your confidence waivers (because it will). You want to know how to build the momentum so that you can build up a steady stream of coaching clients. Because you know what happens when you get those first few clients? Your confidence grows. And when your confidence grows, you're more likely to get out there and get your 6th client, and your 7th and your 8th… Once you've PROVEN to yourself that you can get clients AND help them get the results they want, then, you have a proper coaching practice! I know this from personal experience. This is what happened to me over 13 years ago when I started out as a Coach. Yup… Been there, done that, struggled, cried, worried, wondered whether to pack it all in. I've got the sick stained t-shirt, my friend! :) You need someone who has done this. Someone real, not some guru who spouts theory. Because you are not building your coaching practice in a nice clean vacuum. My name is Amanda Alexander and I'm here to HELP YOU. :) You don't have to figure it out by yourself any longer. I'm a mum of 2 boys and 1 labradoodle. I'm a coach with a helluva lot of experience (over 14 years and over 2,000 recorded client hours). I've been running my practice from home for 14 years. My coaching practice IS my business and my profession. Full time (or as full time as you can get with 2 kids). I've won awards, had lots of lovely things said about the difference I've made as a Coach, a trainer and a mentor coach. I get asked to do keynotes and all that good stuff. I am highly regarded as an authority in my niche and I'm a trusted, recognised reference point for the media on all things related to confidence, flexible working, working mums and work-life balance. I've been in papers like The Telegraph, The Times, The Sunday Times, The Daily Mail. Blahblahblah.. You get the picture! My coaching practice is global..I live in the UK and have clients as far afield as Australia. I've even had one of my coach clients who travelled FROM Australia specifically to attend one of my previous "Mums Who Coach" workshops. Yes really.. But so what? What does this mean to you? It means I also have a big sack of knowledge, experience and skills to share. It means I know exactly what it takes to set up and grow a successful coaching practice when you never have enough time. Why am I telling you all this? Because I want you to know that if I can do it, you can do it. You CAN make your coaching dream a reality. When I first started out, I was completely USELESS. Seriously! I built a website and waited for people to see it and come and hire me. If that website had been a town, you would have called it a GHOST TOWN. I waited for the phone to ring . And waited. And waited. You know what they say about waiting for a phone to ring?!! In fact, for that first 6 months, I had a Ghost Coaching Practice! I had NO CLIENTS! It was only when I started to talk to seasoned, successful coaches that I started to get what it actually takes to attract coaching clients. First of all, I asked them how they got their clients (clue: It wasn't from having a fancy website)! I asked them what worked for them and how they filled their practice. Then I asked them.. “Who is your mentor coach?” Then I hired MY first mentor coach. And I learned soooo much from her. I followed her footsteps. That was when the tide turned on my coaching practice. I have learned more from my Mentor Coaches about building a successful coaching practice than I have ever learnt from any of my Coach Training. And this is what you need right now, isn't it? But you're probably in a Catch 22 situation.. You would LOVE to hire a Mentor Coach who can guide you in the right direction, keep you focused, motivated and on an upwards trajectory. However, because your coaching practice is fledgling, it's likely that you just don't have the money to invest in the thing that would actually help! Doh! Stuck.com But all is not lost! I have exciting news! (Just call me Fairy Godmother if you like!) Well, NO, I don't have a magic wand, actually. And neither does anyone else. There is no magic wand solution to create your coaching practice or make new coaching clients appear from thin air. Building a coaching practice is pretty much like building any other business. You have to work hard at it, and you also have to be resilient, as there are ups and downs, no matter how brilliant you are at coaching. However, you CAN build a coaching practice . And there is a little bit of magic in it - this magic comes from you being brave, focusing on helping other people and being happy, whether you have zero clients or a full practice. I've seen this "magic" happen in my own practice and in the practice's of my own coach clients. Time after time. It happens so often - and I'll be sharing lots of examples of the ways I have created coaching clients in Full Practice 101. Let me say it again...If I can do it, then you can too! You'll see that this page has quite a lot of testimonials. And these are just a selection! :) Whilst you probably won't read every word, I hope that you'll get a good idea from these testimonials that I genuinely want to help you to achieve your coaching goals. But most importantly, you'll see that I have a long and successful history of helping a LOT of coaches to build their practice Please note, these testimonials are from coaches - and coaches represent about 20-30% of my coaching practice. This is an important distinction to make - coaching other coaches is NOT the focus of my own business, it's PART of it. And it's a part that I only started to develop once I had a firmly established coaching practice of my own. I didn't start out as a Coach to Coaches - beware, there are many of these around. ;) The best place to find more testimonials from "non coach" clients is via my Linked In profile . You'll find that some of the testimonials on this page are from "Mums Who Coach" graduates. That's because I used to run an intensive practice building and mentoring programme for coaches who were also mums. But in case you're wondering, Full Practice 101 is for all new or recently qualified Coaches, not just Mums Who Coach! Please do your due diligence on me - read through some of these testimonials, check out the websites or profiles of coaches I've had the privilege to work with and you'll get an idea of the kind of wonderful people I attract! And THIS will give you a very good idea of whether Full Practice 101 is right for you... FULL PRACTICE 101 will… Give you direction and focus - fast! I'll help you hone in on exactly what you need to do first to start to fill your coaching practice AND make time to do it! Give you access to me on FOUR live calls so that you can ask specific questions about your practice and areas you're struggling with Help you see the fastest route to actually filling your practice Stop you getting distracted Stop you spinning your wheels and wasting time being busy but unproductive (I'm talking FAFFING!) Help you make the best use of your time Give you confidence in your coaching practice and yourself Give you the tools you need to put your coaching into practice Give you membership of a private Facebook group where you can brainstorm and build an invaluable network of fellow coaches and get my support How does that sound? I reckon it could be exactly what you need right now. You can start your Full Practice 101 course right now!  You’ll receive one video training session each week , drip fed to you in VERY manageable, bite-size chunks. This training gives you exactly what you need to get your first coaching clients. There's no real homework, you just need to watch short video trainings, each lasting between 5 minutes and 45 minutes.  You'll get a printable workbook to accompany each of the 4 modules and additional resources to support your practice building. You access your training modules any time of day or night, so you can fit this programme in around your busy life . If you're anything like me, you'll probably be watching them whilst stirring a casserole. Or downloading them to listen to on taxi runs or on your mp3 player whilst running (multi-tasking at its best!)  I walk you through your recorded webinars, step by step . You don't need to worry about whether you will understand anything... YOU WILL! I PROMISE! And if you don't..you can always ASK me in our private Facebook group. A question I received: "Would Full Practice 101 be good for someone just starting out as a Coach? Also for someone who has an idea but not too sure how to make it happen?": And here's my reply: It's perfect for you and I promise I'd tell you if it wasn't. The stuff I'm teaching is the stuff I've taught my own coach clients. They've implemented it and it works. Another question:I've been coaching for a while. Clients come in fits and starts. Is Full Practice 101 any good for me?: My response: If you feel that you're not getting momentum in your practice, you're probably getting a bit disheartened and your confidence will take a knock. In Full Practice 101, I teach you the solid foundations to build a SUSTAINABLE practice. I want you to be in practice as a Coach for as long as you want to be. So yes.. join us and make the principles I teach you the principles you use from this day forward to fill your practice! 4 modules of training via 15 video classes. Each video is chunked down into short, easy to digest lessons, each between 5 and 40 minutes and is drip fed to you week by week over a period of 18 weeks. MP3 versions of each of the video lessons so you can download them to your MP3 player and listen on the go PDF copies of the accompanying slides to each video workshop A workbook for each workshop that you can print off, fill in and keep Membership of a private Facebook discussion/brainstorming group where I'll dip in with thoughts, advice and insights throughout the 18 weeks and you can compare notes and share ideas Client Attraction and Building your Coaching Practice Starts with YOU AKA: How to become so incredibly attractive you want to snog YOURSELF!

"Amanda, this sounds great. I'm all excited!" I hear you cry! But Amanda, is this the bit where you tell me how much it is and my heart sinks because I can't afford it? NOPE! A programme like this would usually cost well in excess of £1,000 for just the webinars and group coaching calls alone. If you were to hire me as your mentor coach, you'd be paying a minimum of £750 for a short coaching programme. If you had joined one of my previous Mums Who Coach programmes, you'd have paid anywhere between £1,000 to £2,500.

I've made it incredibly affordable for you because I want you to succeed in your coaching practice. Starting now! The Full Practice 101 training programme is available to you for...

Here's a quick recap of what you'll learn on Full Practice 101 How to become so incredibly attractive to clients you even want to snog YOURSELF! How to get out of your own bloomin' way and GET ON WITH IT! How to create a coaching package so irresistible that your ideal clients say, "I want it NOW. Let me have it!" How to create an avalanche of clients that would scare the abominable snowman Sign up for Full Practice 101 now! Before your Inner Ditherer talks you out of it Before you get distracted by a screaming child/barking dog/nagging boss Before you let this fantastic opportunity to get my support float away Before you kick yourself that you didn't do it NOW Before you find yourself in the same situation this time NEXT year! What if I fall behind? There is no falling behind ! First of all, I'll "drip feed" Full Practice 101 to you in short, manageable chunks to minimise that "OMG I'm so far behind" feeling that sometimes happens! Secondly, many FP101 students have NOT finished FP101, because their practice starting taking off with clients and so they were focused on actually running their practice, rather than learning about how to do it! As I think you'll appreciate, this is a QUALITY "problem"! :) And I'll repeat - you have access to Full Practice for a lifetime - not just 4 months, not just a year. FP101 will be here for you whenever you want to revisit your lessons. How long do I have access to you in the Facebook Group, Amanda? The Facebook is ongoing.  If you have a question or need some help on any aspect of your practice growth , tag me in  a post and I'll do my very best to help you.  Any other questions? Go ahead and ping me an email - amandaATamandaalexander.com I'd be delighted to help! Looking forward to meeting you on Full Practice 101! Copyright © Amanda Alexander 2017

Stepping Up

Stepping Up is an online coaching programme, with lifelong access to all materials. Stepping up helps women to get out of their own way, get clear on their strengths, get clear on what they want and to step up to achieve their career or business goals. Here is an overview of the curriculum of Stepping Up: Why "Stepping Up"? Because women are notoriously bad at recognising our talents, yet we're bloomin' good at beating ourselves up.  Result? We reign ourselves in and we don't go for what we really want. And I'm fed up with that - fed up with seeing briliant, talented women holding themselves back, tying themselves up in knots, worrying about what others think and being too scared to strive for more. Life is too short to be afraid. But I know that’s easier said than done. Stepping Up is about squashing the “fear gremlins” and getting you to live more fearlessly. I'm motivated by my clients actually getting results: I created Stepping Up to help you to get you out of your own way. What Would You Do if You Believed You Could Achieve Anything? You might have a goal that is something like one of these: Achieve a promotion at work Go for your dream job . (You might be holding yourself back because you don’t believe you can or you might be scared that you won’t be able to find your dream job AND get the flexibility you need for your lifestyle) Quit your job and set up your own professional practice or business Go for a big, lifelong goal – something you’ve never really shared with anyone because it’s just so outrageous or blush-worthy I can help you step up , you smarty-pants-but-don’t-know-quite-how-smarty pants-you-really-are woman! And we can do this  without you having to abandon your busy life. It’s not painful. About Your Stepping Up Coach I’ve been around for a long time as a Coach! Well – almost 15 years. I've been awarded Coach Mentor of the Year in the Women Inspiring Women Awards. I’ve been lauded and applauded and all that jazz. I’m certified as a Professional Certified Coach with the ICF. I'm a Sage Business Expert, I blog for people like the ICF, Ever Coach and the Huff Post. I have coached people across the globe and my practice spans life coaching to corporate/executive coaching and mentor coaching for other coaches. But the most important thing is that how YOU feel about me as your Coach. And as you read this, you'll either feel right about me as your Coach or you won't. If you feel right, then chances are, you and I will be a good match. "It feels like I have finally come full circle. I am starting to get back to being ME. I am no longer willing to put myself and my skills on the back burner just because I am afraid of what people think. Stepping up has helped me to move forwards and has meant more to me that I can ever explain. Thank you Amanda for making all this possible and thank you to all my fabulous fellow Stepping Up members who have inspired and encouraged me. Onwards and upwards!” This is What Stepping up Looks Like Stepping Up is an online coaching programme to help YOU to get out of your own way and step up!   “I understand myself better now and am aware when I am becoming overwhelmed and can take action to reduce this….I recognise when things are getting too much and can stop now rather than spinning myself into a whirl of crazy activity that makes me burn out…The huge difference for me as a result of the stepping up programme is that I have realised that I have a lot of self confidence” Here are the 6 main outcomes I want for you from Stepping Up: What You'll Get on Stepping Up 5 x Recorded Coaching Calls with Amanda 5 x Stepping Up Masterclasses You'll get access to 5 masterclasses (3 audio only, 2 with video and audio). Taught by me and 4 of my hand-picked experts, uploaded to your private Stepping Up members' area once a fortnight. Once you enrol, I'll give you instant access to the first teleclass on values. These masterclasses ill give you the essential foundations you need to get out of your own way and get on with achieving whatever you want in life. In these teleclasses, you will give you the motivation, knowledge and inspiration you need to Step Up:   Masterclass 1: To give you more clarity and direction You'll learn how to identify your core values so that you can get crystal clear on your direction. You know what they say about the importance of focus! Getting clear on your values will have a domino effect on your clarity, direction and focus.     Masterclass 2: To keep you strong and on track even when the going gets tough You'll learn about the 9 "little devils" that make you doubt yourself and make you afraid. And you'll learn how to conquer these little devils, how to build your resilience so that you can keep going even when life isn't a smooth upwards trajectory.     Masterclass 3: To understand and eliminate the limiting beliefs that hold you back You'll learn WHY you have those thoughts that tell you that you're not good enough, that you can't possibly see how you can achieve your thing. And you'll learn simple, highly effective techniques to quieten the voices in your head and replace them with positive, empowering and enthusiastic "can do" beliefs    Masterclass 4: To make you into a more confident woman We ALL know that confidence is the key to success, perhaps more than anything else. If you've got talent but no confidence, you won't get anywhere. True self-confidence is so elusive for most women, but this masterclass will reveal the secrets to growing your confidence.    Masterclass 5: To help you to make big leaps to get to where you want to be You'll get inspired and motivated in this masterclass with Suzy Greaves, my own Coach, Editor of Psychologies and author of "The Big Leap" and "The Big Peace". I work with Suzy because she makes big leaps in her life. I make big leaps in my own life. Stepping Up is about making big leaps and this masterclass will inspire you to do just that! I joined Stepping UP because I wanted to build resilience and get more confidence and get clear on options for changing my job. I am now braver, I love myself and I focus on the positive. I dream big now...I'm living more in line with my values. I allow myself to shine and I'm kinder to myself. I'm proud of my strengths rather than apologetic or overly humble. My family have noticed I'm happier, more confident, stronger and more "me" Claire B Raising your self-awareness so that you can make better choices that move you forward (rather than hold you back). Awareness is the precursor to choice! Equiping you with a “toolkit” of coaching techniques to make you more courageous, stronger, more positive, more resilient, happier and more confident. Helping you to identify positive and sustainable new habits to replace the bad old ones. It’s been such a life changing experience on so many levels Kim Plummer These are the 3 core areas that we’ll be focusing on:    1. Who Are You, What's Important to You I'll help you to understand your core values and your core needs. When you've elicited your values and needs, everything else falls into place so much more easily. Think of it as plastering your walls and getting rid of the cracks BEFORE you paint them a shiny new colour. We want that colour to STICK!    2. Strong Confidence and Self-Belief You KNOW how important self-belief and confidence are. This is at the heart of Stepping Up and I’ve already talked a lot about it. You need to believe in yourself to have any chance of achieving your goals. And you need confidence to put the inner work into practical steps. So we are going to build your confidence in Stepping Up: Let’s help you to understand "Imposter Syndrome" and how to get rid of it. Let’s get you stepping up and living your life without fear of what others will think or what might happen if you fail.    3. Personal Resilience for Success Resilience is essential to 21st century life. This is so much more than just the ability to “bounce back”. Resilient people are more likely to see opportunities and actually grow from setbacks. Lots of work on self-awareness here! None of us have the luxury of living in a vacuum. Sh1t happens, but I want you to enjoy the journey and incorporate joy, fun and lightness along the way – even when you’ve got stuff to deal with that you can’t just “push aside”. Building your resilience allows you to get better focus so that you can resist the never-ending distractions that slow you down from achieving your goals. Let’s get you STRONG. T he huge difference for me as a result of the stepping up programme is that I have realised that I have a lot of self confidence. Sarah F At the heart of Stepping Up, I will coach you to help you with the questions that you need to answer in order to get out of your own way Questions like these: Am I good enough ? What’s important to me? How can I make better decisions ? How can I start trusting myself more? How can I be courageous and strong? How can I get rid of that creeping fear that sometimes makes me want to hide under the bedclothes? How can I believe in myself as much as others believe in me? How can I be kinder to myself ? What small steps can I take next that will move me forward? This is the start of something amazing. I have loved stepping up, it's made a massive positive impact for me Claire "My original goal for Stepping UP was to believe in myself, even when things were tough. When I look at my timid little mouse-like emails that I sent to you initially, I can see how I had allowed myself to be side-lined in so many ways. In just a few short weeks I feel so different, and its changed not only the way that I am viewing my work but also the way in which I view my relationships with friends, and those who really aren’t my friends. You gave me an opportunity to step out from under my shady leaf...Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart, for believing in me and for Stepping Up with me. It’s made a massive difference to how I feel about myself and my life. Kim P Stepping Up has been an incredibly helpful, uplifting and inspiring experience - thank you so much Amanda. Not only have I learnt a lot about myself and what has been holding me back for so long, but I have had the privilege to share the journey with 11 amazing, supportive women. Jane G Thank you so much for all the support, encouragement and wonderful coaching that you did with me. Being clear on my skills, strengths and values helped me to put them across succinctly and positively and 'step up'. I am being brave, being bold and it feels fantastic. Thank you. Claire B

The Academy for Talented Women

"This is where we unwrap the most courageous, self confident and emotionally resilient version of you!" What is The Academy for Talented Women, in one sentence? The Academy for Talented Women is a unique, highly cost-effective online members' club that exists to help professional women to fulfil their potential at work and in life. Is this you? You're probably a professional woman - and probably a woman in business.  Most of our members are aged between 35-55. It's the time in a woman's life when you are trying to grow a career, a relationship and possibly a family.. whilst trying to run the house, keep hold of your own sense of self and trying to do the right things to stay healthy. You might also be dealing with not enough sleep, hormonal changes, ageing parents and making time to somehow keep your friendships going. Most of the time, it feels like an almost impossible challenge to balance it all!  The word "busy" is a byline for modern women juggling so many competing demands on her time and energy!  Working mothers in particular spend these decades trying to keep everyone happy and often end up feeling as if they are failing on all counts, no matter how hard they try! We "get" busy, overwhelmed and exhausted. About 90% of our members are working mums, the other 10% are equally as busy, even without kids, having taken on extra responsibilities! Your work is important to you - you are seeking career progression, or you might be in career transition. You want to make an impact on the World in your own way, whether you want to be seen as a leader in your organisation or you want to forge your own path.  There is no one label to describe you - you are the sum of your many parts! You might be a mum returning to work after a career break, using this crossroads in your life as an opportunity to get clear on what you really want, now that your priorities have shifted and career choices have become less black and white.  Or you might be like 30% of Academy members, who have a dream of going it alone. Many of our members have made the shift from corporate to become independent professionals, often having used their original career as a springboard into self-employment. You might work for a great organisation. Or you might be working for a dinosaur. We all experience both over the course of our careers!  You probably want to: 1.Have more self confidence so that you can step up in your career and really fulfil your potential - and take no cr*p from bullies you'll meet along the way. 2.Continue* to build your emotional resilience , so that you can glide (almost) effortlessly through the seas of 21st Century life, even when storms are raging. 3. Balance your life - or at least IMPROVE the balance so that you feel a it more in control, a bit more organised, a bit more focused on your big picture, a bit less guilty about not being able to clone yourself. 4. Believe in yourself , so that you can stop feeling as if you're going to be found out (it's called imposter syndrome ) and feel good about yourself even when you are challenged by others. *I know you have plenty already, but we need as much as we can get, don't we? If so, you're in the right place! The Academy's Mission To help women to develop their potential, feel good about themselves and achieve success that's balanced.

You can share a success, ask for a contact and build your professional network in a way that is meaningful, without having to travel to a formal networking event. 6.And last but by no means least, you'll also get an invitation to our annual live event - "Stepping Up". A day designed to inspire you to knock down the obstacles getting in your way and to "step up" to creating a career and a life that you'll love. Why is all this important? The Academy for Talented Women is based on the principle that "success" is only meaningful when it addresses all aspects of your life. That's why we built The Academy - to enable you to achieve your own definition of success, in every area of your life. It is a ‘one stop shop’ of support, self-development, masterminding and coaching. It's what modern-day working women need!
