Professional  Coaching for doing Life & Business

“Perspective Personal Solutions” says what I want to stand for.  I want to help people gain perspective and get the best out of themselves and their teams. I will do this by pulling you out of “life’s busy cauldron” and helping you view and review where you are, versus where you want to be.  This can be, but doesn't have to be, problem orientated.  Many people come because they want help setting goals and plans for achievement!

I will help you create a plan of how you will get there - what needs to change, improve, reduce, increase...?

It is all driven by you, I will just help you set the direction and hold you accountable to doing what you said you would do.

"Do the best you can until you know better, then when you know better, do better"

Shayne O'Connor

Qualified Professional Coach  

Like many of the people I coach, I have been in the position to question how or what I was doing. Was I being productive?  Was I making the right business decisions?  Was I enjoying my work/life? Was I getting the best out of myself and the people around me, and what would I do if not this?

Over the years I have been many things; a Professional Cricketer, Business Owner, Operations and General Manager, even Otago Mitre 10 Cup Rugby Team Manager.  I have a wonderful wife and together we have 4 fantastic children. Now I have found my niche as a Professional Coach.

I enjoy being the listener in conversations, hearing the challenges people face, helping them clarify and understand what they want or need, then nudge them to create solutions to their problems and move towards their goals. 

I am experienced working with and managing people in various environments from elite sport to business, and life in general.  I have a pragmatic, systematic approach and I've helped many people overcome their doubts, struggles, ambitions, and goals; they have clearer direction and they're achieving the things they want or need.

Quinton – Quantity Surveyor

My professional and personal life had both become very demanding and busy.  As a result of this I started losing direction and control of my professional life which in turn also affected my life generally.  

Shayne is an awesome coach.  He is understanding, realistic and easy to talk to.  I found being coached by him enabled me to step back from myself and see my day to day moves and thoughts in a different light, professionally and personally, and where I could take action.

Being coached by Shayne allowed me to learn new techniques and tools to help me deal with pressure, anxiety and stress in every part of life.  This was invaluable, and I would fully recommend Shayne to anyone.
